The Chinese smartphone maker Huawei has followed Samsung's lead by unveiling a super-luxury 5G phone with a folding screen called the Mate X with a price tag of €2,299 (£1,995). Take a look at how this phone bends differently than its competition and costs even more!

Without using the Mate X, it's hard to say whether Huawei has taken the right path with its design. We are seeing a lot of progress. As you might expect by now, the UI auto-adapts depending upon the fold status of the screen. It folds outwards into an 11mm thick handset with a 6.6-inch main display and a 6.4-inch secondary screen.

The four-day MWC2019 opened its doors on Monday and is expected to attract 110,000 visitors from 200 countries, in which around 2,400 companies will be exhibiting their products.

Ian Fogg, an analyst at the mobile analytics company Opensignal said, "Both foldable phones are 5G-capable and are instantly distinctive from the smartphone designs of the last 10-years".

The South Korean firm Samsung revealed nearly five weeks ago their foldable smartphone screen, the Samsung Galaxy Fold, the rival firms have contrasting designs.

This device is coming hot on the heels of the Samsung Galaxy Fold, and it's among the pioneers that are paving the way for the foldable smartphone era. It's to be noted that the devices that were presented were still early designs - so Huawei might be able to iterate here and provide something more robust in commercial units. For Samsung the Fold has just one fold to turn the screen from small to big, while Mate X needs to fold two times for the big screen.

Hot on the heels of the reveal of Samsung's Galaxy Fold, Huawei announced its foldable display smartphone, the Mate X. With the Mate X, they've tried to get the most out of the form factor. For 5G connectivity, it has Huawei's own Balong 5000 5G modem which offers dual-SIM connectivity as well. When unfolded, the device has an 8-inch display with a resolution of 2480 x 2200.

The Galaxy S10 features a triple camera module at the rear with a 12MP (f/2.4 aperture) telephoto lens, a 12MP (f/1.5 aperture) lens with OIS support and a 16MP ultra-wide sensor with f/2.2 aperture. There's super-fast 55W charging that will get this thing up and running quick with Huawei teasing it can charge 85% of its battery in just 30 minutes which is incredible. By which we mean it really looks like the Huawei Mate X.

The smartphone is powered by the flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 along with either 6GB or 8GB of RAM and 128GB or 256GB of internal storage which is upgradeable to 512GB via microSD.
