Huawei has just sent a powerful shot across the bow to Samsung. Right on schedule is Huawei, which has just announced the Mate X - a 5G foldable smartphone that's very different to what we've seen so far. When unfolded, though, it's incredibly thin at 5.4mm.

On the surface, the Huawei Mate X is a highly impressive piece of technology, but many questions remain regarding performance and software features.

The Mate X's screen wraps around the outside so users can still view it when it's closed, unlike the Galaxy Fold, which has a screen that folds shut.

China's Huawei unveiled a new folding-screen phone on Sunday, joining the latest trend for bendable devices as it challenges the global smartphone market's dominant players, Apple and Samsung. The rear display is 6.4-inch (25:9, 2480 x 892) rear display, when folded.

The Huawei Mate X features a single display mounted on one side of the device (the back appears to be just plastic).

How large is the folding display of the Huawei Mate X? When it's fully flat it gives you an 8-inch square-ish tablet display (the exact aspect ratio is a slightly odd 8:7.1) at 2480x2200. No hole punch cameras and no notches. Unfolded you have an 8-inch tablet display with a 8:7:1 aspect ratio and a 2480 x 2200 resolution.

Billed as the first phone combining foldable technology with a 5G radio, the Huawei Mate X is a stunning foldable premium smartphone.

Samsung is priming the channel and those in its mobile solution provider partner program (MSPP) for the new Galaxy Fold and the rollout of several upgraded smartphones that include among the first that support emerging high-speed Wi-Fi 6 and 5G networks.
