"They made some interesting design choices that not only make the Mate X look different, but in many eyes better than Samsung", Carolina Milanesi, an analyst at Creative Strategies told CNET, a leading website for tech product news.

Unlike in-folding type of Galaxy Fold, Huawei Mate X does not fold exactly in half, but is an out-folding type that has a bigger risk of screen breakage.

If you were planning to check out the Galaxy Fold at your local phone store when it launches in April, you may not be able to.

At the Unpacked event in San Francisco last week, South Korean chaebol Samsung introduced its latest flagship Galaxy S10 series smartphones.

Samsung hasn't revealed the thickness of the Fold, but Huawei's keynote included a slide which referred to it as "other foldable phone" and claimed a thickness of 6.8mm, giving a total of 13.6mm when closed. After Samsung announced its Galaxy Fold and Huawei came out with the Mate X, there was much to be excited about.

Huawei's Mate X has just the one screen on the outside. However, Samsung's Galaxy Fold can't be laid totally flat. For now, firm dates for the phone's official launch haven't been established; those are largely up to Korea's wireless carriers, SK Telecom, KT and LG Uplus. Sony wants you to go for its upcoming Sony Xperia 1, which may feature one of the best displays we've ever seen on a smartphone. "Unthinkable two years ago when it was hard to believe there would be any commercial 5G phones in 2019". Both Samsung and Huawei have unveiled foldables in recent days, but how do they stack up? But most importantly, the transition is seamless and you can also barely see the hinge between the two screens (which is great). Lastly, the device could be offered in three variants - 8GB RAM with 128GB storage, and 8GB RAM with 512GB storage, and a 12GB RAM with 1TB storage model.

August Oetker KG also said they had postponed YouTube spending after their ads were shown to play before the videos . While numerous individuals are criticizing YouTube , different creators have come out in defense of the team.

Under the hood, the Mate X comes with the "world's first" 7nm 5G chipset with the Kirin 980 and Balong 5000.

"With this technology, costs are high".

The prototype folding phone seems quite slim.

Most technology giants came up with the smartphone-meets-tablet configuration with the flexible displays, however, Nubia has distinguished itself by launching a folding wearable that packs nearly all of the functionalities of a smartphone.

Huawei said its Mate X would be available later in the year to coincide with the launch of 5G networks, which are expected to begin limited rollout in the summer in the United Kingdom and elsewhere.
