DURBAN – At the Mobile World Congress 2019, Huawei Consumer Business Group (CBG) announced multiple products, including the 5G Foldable Smartphone: Huawei Mate X and the Huawei 5G CPE Pro. 

Huawei Mate X: The 5G Foldable Smartphone

The Huawei Mate X combines 5G, foldable screen, AI and an all-new mode of interfacing to provide consumers with an unprecedented user experience and brings forth a new breed of smartphone.

The 2-in-1 smartphone and tablet Huawei Mate X features a flexible OLED panel and a Falcon Wing Mechanical Hinge that blends style with technology. 

The lightweight foldable smartphone sports a new Interstellar Blue colour wave that epitomizes the beauty of technology and sets a higher bar for future smartphones.

The Huawei Mate X is more than a smartphone or a tablet—it is greater than the sum of its parts. The flexible OLED foldable FullView display and the world’s fastest 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. 

In tablet mode, the Huawei Mate X is the ideal mobile productivity powerhouse. Multitasking is better than ever and users can take advantage of two screens simultaneously for multiple tasks and enjoy a desktop-like experience.

Huawei’s flagship smartphones have always come with powerful cameras, and the Huawei Mate X is no different. The foldable design makes it possible for the camera system to play the role of both front and rear cameras, resulting in a revolutionary photography experience.

Possessing leading capabilities in chip, device and communications technologies, Huawei is poised to lead in the 5G era. Equipped with the world’s first 7nm 5G multi-mode modem chipset, Balong 5000, the Huawei Mate X will be the benchmark of 5G smartphones to come.

A high-capacity 4,500mAh battery supporting Huawei SuperCharge is packed in Huawei Mate X, fulfilling the demand for greater battery performance in the 5G era.
