Huawei is the latest tech company to unveil a foldable smartphone device, debuting its forthcoming foldable Mate X at a packed launch event in Barcelona in the early hours on Monday morning AEST.
It comes days after Samsung unveiled its foldable device, ushering in a new design that has been many years in the making. But Huawei’s version takes a slightly different approach to achieve the all-new functionality.
Unlike the Samsung Galaxy Fold, which opens up like a book to provide a larger tablet-like experience, the design of the Mate X sees the larger screen wrap around the outside of the gadget, rather than being enclosed on the inside. The result is a pretty stunning looking device that offers a whole lot of display.
