At the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2019, tech giant Huawei has launched its first 5G foldable smartphone — Huawei Mate X – that comes with the falcon wing mechanical hinge, 7nm multi-mode modem chipset Balong 5000, a high-capacity 4,500mAh battery supporting the world’s fastest 55W HUAWEI SuperCharge.

When folded, the device is a huge display smartphone with a 6.6-inch screen, and when opened, it turns into a slim tablet with an 8-inch screen. The 6.6-inch dual display panel equipped on the Mate X is a true FullView display. When unfolded, it transforms into an 8-inch tablet at only 5.4mm thick.

Equipped with the world’s first 7nm 5G multi-mode modem chipset Balong 5000, the chipset offers high 5G download speeds, at 4.6Gps on the sub-6GHz band (theoretical). Balong 5000 is also the world’s first chipset to support both SA and NSA architectures; users will not need a device upgrade to continue enjoying 5G connectivity. The Mate X’s sports a dual SIM tray that supports both 4G and 5G. Additionally, there are four 5G antennas built into the compact body of the Mate X to enhance connection quality.

A new dual battery of 4,500mAh is packed into the Mate X’s 5.4mm-thick body, combined with the AI smart power saving technology. The smartphone ships with a 55W Huawei SuperCharge that tops the battery up quickly to minimise downtime for those who prefer a fast-paced lifestyle. In just 30 minutes, Huawei SuperCharge can charge the battery to 85 per cent.

The innovative flexible OLED foldable FullView display, unique falcon wing mechanical hinge and the industry’s best 5G modem chipset Balong 5000 combine to deliver a new mode of interfacing, in which the large-screen experience and portability co-exist in harmony.

With the expansive viewing area, everything from editing a document to reading will surely feel better on the Mate X. In addition, consumers will be able to drag images from their photo gallery to their emails in split-screen mode.

The Huawei Mate X packs Leica camera supporting the most advanced imaging features to date. The foldable design makes it possible for the camera system to play the role of both front and rear cameras. When folded, the Huawei Mate X shows a view finder on both sides, so even the subjects in the frame can contribute to the creative process.

Moreover, the Mate X comes with an integrated fingerprint power button that enables users to power up the device with one tap, offering a secure and convenient experience.
