Huawei Mate X 2 concept is the foldable phone we want – Sorry Galaxy Fold

The rival to the Mate X was supposedly the Samsung Galaxy Fold.

By Peter Phelps. This Huawei Mate X 2 concept conjures up images of a new foldable phone that looks quite similar to the rival Samsung Galaxy Fold, and it’s very impressive. 

Even though the Huawei Mate X won’t be available until September 2019, Dutch website LetsGoDigital has already published concept images for a brand new foldable phone with an entirely different design.

This version has two separate screens and looks far more similar to the Samsung Galaxy Fold; there’s a smartphone-like screen on the outside, and when unfolded a tablet screen is revealed within.

However, the primary outer screen at least looks far bigger and more attractive than that of the Galaxy Fold — we’ll have to wait and see if that’s still the case after it completes production.

We’ve already been lucky enough to try out the Huawei Mate X hands-on, and we were very impressed with what we saw. It folded seamlessly and felt like a finished product despite being first-generation tech, being attractive and easy to operate in either format.

The specs were also impressive — a powerful Kirin 980 chipset, big 4500mAh battery, and 5G connectivity are some of the prospects it offers. We’re looking forward to putting it through a full review shortly after release in September. More
