Francisco Jeronimo, an associate vice-president with IDC, said the Mate X's "form factor seems a lot more user friendly than the Samsung Galaxy Fold".
Huawei here has opted for a novel asymmetric design where one half of the screen is narrower than the other one.
United Kingdom pricing is yet to be officially announced for the Galaxy Fold, but in the rest of Europe it will cost 2,000 euro (£1,738). "I think we are kind of in the Stone Age of the flexible device", he said.
To make the phone as thin as possible, Huawei had to include a variety of clever workarounds.
The Samsung Galaxy Fit and Samsung Galaxy Fit e are two upcoming wearable fitness trackers for people who don't care about full-featured smartwatches. As you've probably figured out from the title we're talking about the Samsung Galaxy S10e hands-on. Take a piece of paper and fold it. At Unpacked, we showed you the Galaxy Fold. Going by that logic, Samsung had a harder task on its hand, as it wants a proper sharp fold and not a wrap. It's to be noted that this seems to be the weak-point of Huawei's design as it doesn't look almost as refined as Samsung's attempt.
Rain, ice and snow possible this weekend
The majority of the area will see rain nearly all day long with the exception being in northwest Missouri and northeast Kansas. That means blizzards are possible for the area, and the National Weather Service has issued a Blizzard Warning until 7 a.m.
Rory Cellan-Jones, the BBC's technology correspondent said, "Security concerns about Huawei's 5G kit are a shadow hanging over the whole of this year's Mobile World Congress". At €2,299 (about £2000 and $2600, then), it's even more expensive than the $1980 Samsung Galaxy Fold. While the Galaxy Fold folds inwards and features an additional display on the front, the Mate X just has one display and features back-to-back foldable design. At MWC 2019, the Huawei Mate X shows how serious the bendy screen movement really is.
Other than that, it's still rocking the same specs: 6.39-inch AMOLED display, dual 24MP+2MP lens on the front, dual 12MP lenses on the back, and your choice of 6GB or 8GB of RAM.
Let's take a look at Mate X and what it actually promises.
The world's second-largest smartphone manufacturer believes the Mate X is two things the Galaxy Fold isn't: the future of design and the future of technology.
There's also the fact that Samsung says the Fold is tested for 200,000 folds, or 100 folds a day for five years, while Huawei is just rating it for 100,000 folds.
