Huawei Mate X

The Huawei Mate X is a flagship high-end smartphone which claims to be the future of mobile technology. It features a new folding design, which integrates a new era of communicative interaction. Users can keep it compact for daily smartphone tasks or unfold to reveal an exceptional experience in multitasking or entertainment. Based on Huawei’s tests, the flexible screen can bend and stretch numerous times without failing. Users can prepare to be surprised by its innovation and ground-breaking performance. The HUAWEI Mate X is engineered to be impressively thin with what it calls as the ‘Falcon Wing’ design. This unprecedented stretchable hinge is artistically crafted to dissolve into the device for a smooth and flat finish on both sides of the device. The firm and durable design ensures the screen will not over stretch while folding or bulge in unfolding. With the folding display, users can experience boundless proficiency in Split Screen mode. Now, users can drag an image to email or write a memo while searching on the browser and overcome work challenges more efficiently. Besides that, the power switch is integrated with the fingerprint reader into one fast and secure button. Another highlight of the Mate X is the 5G chipset. Ushering in the 5G revolution with the HUAWEI Balong 5000, the world's first 7 nm multimode 5G chipset achieves industry-leading 5G download speed. The HUAWEI Mate X with Balong 5000 officially unlocks a new experience in the 5G era. The advanced dual sim provides extensive access to 2G / 3G / 4G / 5G frequency bands around the globe. Leading the 5G evolution, HUAWEI Mate X also supports Standalone 5G network, which will be the mainstream solution in the future. The hardware performance is provided by the HUAWEI Kirin 980 with 2 x Cortex-A76 Based 2.6 GHz, 2 x Cortex-A76 Based 1.92 GHz and 4 x Cortex-A55 1.8 GHz, Mali-G76 GPU, 8 GB RAM and 512 GB ROM. As for software, the Mate X runs on EMUI 9.1.1, which is the latest EMUI version based on Android 9. With the world’s fastest 55 W HUAWEI SuperCharge, users can charge the phone up to 85% in 30 minutes. The camera has a compact hand-held bar design with a re-designed Leica Camera System perfectly balancing the pursuit of a slim body and comfortable grip. The camera is a Leica camera with 40 MP (wide angle lens) + 16 MP (ultra-wide-angle lens) + 8 MP (telephoto). On the back with a futuristic interstellar blue, a new material is adopted to allow an uninterrupted 5G signal. The dual screen design allows the user to preview shots in real-time from both sides and contribute their creative ideas to produce a stunning portrait. As a conclusion, the Mate X is suitable for users who are looking for the latest designed smartphone. The design is highly catered for business users who work a lot from their phone since multitasking is much more convenient with the folding screen. However, this newly designed high-performance smartphone does not come cheap, so it is only suitable for users who are willing to pay the high price. Hands-on article by Jagadisa Rajarathnam

The Huawei Mate X might be the first foldable phone you seriously consider paying gobs of money for in 2019. Its solid-feeling hinge allows this handset to fold up, transforming from full 8-inch tablet into a more-traditional-looking 6.6-inch and 6.38-inch smartphone with a screen on either side. It feels like you're holding the future in your hand, just know that your transformative euphoria over this phone comes at a very high price.

Huawei Mate X initial review: Foldable champ
Source: Pocket Lint English
Huawei was one of the first to show off its foldable smartphone, the Mate X is an exciting start. Yes it's big and chunky, and it'll undoubtedly take time to mature into a product that most consumers will want to use, but it's a very promising device and form factor with tonnes of potential. We suspect with this particular model that the price tag is almost impossible to swallow for most average consumers, and maybe even for the tech-enthused early adopter. But if Huawei works on the form, makes it smaller, polishes the software to make it a killer experience, and brings the price down, you may just start to see it in a few more hands.

Samsung struggled to make a strong case for them with the Galaxy Fold, with that device seemingly sacrificing a decent phone experience to achieve the new design. With the Mate X that doesn’t seem to be an issue and this looks like it’ll be fantastic whether it's folded down into a phone or unfurled into a tablet.

Huawei Mate X review (early verdict): a 5G folding phone pioneer
Source: T3 English
The Huawei Mate X is a folding phone pioneer. From our hands on time with the device it not only definitely proved that folding phones are far from a gimmick, but it also genuinely wowed us with its build quality as well as fit and finish. The Mate X is genuinely exciting to hold in the hand, and for that Huawei must be congratulated. However, naturally, no judgement can be bestowed on the phone until we get chance to extensively test the device, as its incredibly high price will almost certainly not be the only obstacle it will need to overcome to win our approval.

Huawei Mate X Review: Their is Folding Screen Phones Beast
Source: Igeekphone English
Some might ask, “Is it worth $2,600?” It needs to be clear that Mate X is not a continuation of any existing equipment or design. Although it is based on existing smartphone and tablet technology, it is still a new form. For this reason, Huawei’s Mate X and Samsung’s Galaxy Fold phones must now create an exclusive market for devices, and must also recover a lot of research and development costs. Today’s early user prices reflect all of these factors, and it is unfair to judge the phone with current smartphone standards and prices.

Using the Mate X made me a foldable phone believer
Source: CNet English
Last week, Samsung and Huawei announced the $1,980 Galaxy Fold and $2,600 Mate X foldable phones, respectively. I gawked along with everyone else, absorbing every detail I could, but it wasn't until I spent a good 5 minutes playing around with the Mate X in a cramped, stuffy meeting room at MWC 2019 that the appeal of foldable devices sunk in on a much deeper level. Not every foldable phone design will be a revelation, but for me, opening and closing the Mate X was.

The decision to show media the device in this controlled fashion has us believe that, again like Samsung, Huawei has made a technological marvel but is cautious about the software bugs.

Overall, the Mate X offers a larger display on all fronts with a more refined design, thinner frame and gapless hinge with minimal compromises. Of course there's still question marks over the durability of the hinge and screen in the long-term, but for now the Mate X is the foldable phone to beat.

Huawei Mate X first look: 5G flexibility in a foldable form factor (Updated)
Source: Android Authority English
The Huawei Mate X is a tablet-phone hybrid with an exterior folding display Huawei calls “FullView display,” which is wrapped around the outside of the device. The single flexible 8-inch OLED display provides a tablet experience when open, as well as a phone mode. The Mate X in tablet mode is not quite square with an aspect ratio of 8:7.1. Its 2,480 x 2,200 resolution results in 414 pixels per inch.

But as first impressions go, the Mate X edges nearer to a well-rounded reality than a pie-in-the-sky concept – impressive considering it’s still a few months from hitting the market – and is certainly one of the 2019 handsets we most look forward to getting our mitts on again later this year.

Huawei Mate X – the dazzling new flagship phone with everything

Well, we kind of expected big things from Huawei this year with its new phones, but only superlatives can be used for everything to do with the Huawei Mate X smart phone. In the lead up to the Mobile World Conference in Barcelona, Huawei showed off a phone that, at this stage, looks to be state-of-the-art in everything. (And those superlatives apply equally, as we’ll see, to the purchase price).

Unfortunately that's all the hardware info we currently have on the Huawei Mate X. Many potentially important pieces are still missing from the puzzle. Judging by the company's often vague answers to particular questions and the fact that the unit we was on the show floor was the only unit available, we don't really expect to many particulars to get cleared up in the immediate future.

Huawei Mate Xs

It is an undeniable fact to state that there is an increase in demand for foldable phones in the market despite its high price. While there is very limited choice of foldable models to choose from, Huawei Mate XS has made its grand entry into the foldable phones market. Well, first thing first, Mate XS is a slightly updated version of its predecessor, Mate X which debuted last year. However, being a successor alone is not the only mentionable thing about Mate XS because along with a market-shattering price, this model has its very own wow factors which would blow the user’s mind off. When Mate X came into the market with a display which folds on the outside like the first ever folding phone concept, the Royole FlexPai, it definitely managed to attract a lot of attention but sadly, this model was solely sold in China market. Maybe Huawei did notice the frustration among international users on not being able to get a hold on Mate X and subsequently launched the upgraded version, Mate XS to cater for international market.
As far as the design is concerned, the smartphone unfurls rather than folding together like a book which is exactly the same feature as its predecessor. However, this is totally opposite to its competitor, Samsung Galaxy Fold. Those who are quite used to the Galaxy Fold-type folding might find some difficulties to get adjusted with Mate XS. Despite carrying a similar design with Mate X, Huawei claims that there is some improvement done with Mate XS. Such as the ‘Falcon Wing’ hinge which has been incorporated within Mate XS is actually made of more than one hundred interlocking parts along the entire length of the phone. This upgrade will be a big plus point when it comes to improving the overall user experience with the phone. Apart from that, the display crease that exist in Samsung Galaxy Fold is absent in this model due to the choice of placing the display on the outside which is again a rather smart move by Huawei.
In folded position, Mate XS accommodates for a 6.6 inches AMOLED panel display but the real interesting thing about this phone is the experience of using it in its fully opened 8 inches display. The experience is definitely one of a kind for users even for those who are quite used with Mate X. The battery within Mate XS is again the same as the original Mate X which is 4500mAh. The battery capability is enough to support the usage throughout the day without the need for frequent recharging. Even though it has a lot of eye-captivating factors within it, Mate XS do fall back with its lack of Google App and Services. This is definitely a huge frustration for some users, especially those who are regular users of Gmail and Youtube. So, again the choice of owning Mate XS is really a rather subjective choice as it does carry enough plus for its price but there are some disappointments too.

It is just an amazing device that pushes the envelope in more ways than one, offering a glimpse into one potential future for the industry. It's the definition of a "halo product" for both Huawei and folding display tech, not only showcasing what is possible but also pushing it forward and actually getting into the point of relative viability as an end-user product.

A foldable phone that expands into a tablet has been thought of as the next form factor for mobile devices. Huawei has thrown conventional design out of the window with Mate Xs by placing the foldable screen on the outside and we think this design makes great sense as you're not stuck with a secondary smaller display. What remains to be seen is if the Mate Xs can prove to be durable enough for the long run. It's a pricey proposition and without Google's framework, it requires you place your faith in Huawei.

On the other hand, even if Huawei launched the Mate Xs to be able to compete with more up-to-date hardware, the handset is still lacking Google Services, which in turn makes the smartphone hard to sell. And once again, Huawei has a great piece of tech, which you can't have outside of China without caveats. But if you don't mind using Huawei Mobile Services, you can get the phone for €2,499 internationally in about a month.

Huawei Mate Xs review (hands on)
Source: GSM Arena English
Huawei is known for its excellent engineering, but we’ll have to see whether even its skills are up to the task before them here. Although I'm confident that the Mate Xs will deal with the strains of everyday use better than other foldables, that doesn't necessarily mean it will manage as well as a standard smartphone. The extortionate price means this will not be a phone for the masses, which in a way is good. Most people won't want to do without Google apps.

Huawei Mate Xs hands-on review
Source: Stuff TV English
The Mate Xs is a 5G foldable with insane power, a super camera set-up, and if Huawei’s claims are true, enough juice to last over a day. Arguably there’s no better way to futureproof your pocket, problem is, with no word on pricing or availability will it burn a hole in it?

Huawei Mate Xs Hands-on Review: Better Than The Fold?
Source: Unbox English
Unlike the original Mate X, the Mate Xs is a phone made for global audiences. The phone is priced at Euros 2499 (around Php 138K) and will be shipping in Global markets next month. Take note though – Euro pricing is typically higher than local pricing, and the Mate Xs may end up being significantly cheaper if and when it hits our shores.

Huawei Mate XS hands-on: Weird flex, but it’s still unique
Source: Android Authority English
The Mate XS will receive a global launch (not the US, obviously), which includes select regions throughout Europe. We also know that it doesn’t come with the fancy leather case bundled with the original Mate X. We will be able to buy one separately, however, and something tells me you’ll want to as there’s no way I’d put this thing in my pocket unprotected!

Huawei Mate XS Hands-on: Solid hardware, but lacks Google Play Store
Source: Mobile Syrup English
In my short time with the Mate XS, I thought it was impressive. It’ll be interesting how long the fold lasts, how good the camera is, how long that 4,500mAh battery can survive for, and what apps have been optimized for its expansive 8-inch screen.

Huawei Mate Xs initial review: Re-working the Mate X

The Mate Xs is a marginal improvement on the Mate X we saw last year and is a very expensive device. Even so, it still has a lot of potential and there's no doubt it's an impressive device.

The Mate Xs might be a minor update, but considering we didn’t get a proper European release for the Mate X it doesn’t feel needless. It would have been odd selling last year’s model at a high price with older internals and the improvements to the hinge and display are always going to be welcome. I still have plenty of questions about software and I have yet to really see how apps adapt between folds - this could make or break the Mate.

The Huawei Mate XS is arguably the most satisfying foldable phone that we’ve used. It's going to cost a lot, and it may be a little on the fragile side, but what it lacks in affordability and durability it makes up for in power, features and wow factor.
