Like every folding phone we've seen but the Xiaomi concept, the Mate X folds in half along a central spine. We should get more information on the Huawei Mate X on the 24th of February on how it competes against the likes of the Samsung Galaxy Fold and other upcoming foldable smartphones.

There looks to be a fingerprint sensor on the thicker side of the Mate X, along with what looks like several camera modules. It had a massive 7.2-inch display, and considering the fully-unfolded Galaxy Fold reportedly has a 7.3-inch screen, we might see something similar with the Mate X.

This type of folding arrangement makes the back and front the display, but given that phones today already have glass front and back panels there may not be any added risk in taking this approach.

Australia's ties with China have deteriorated since 2017, when Canberra accused China of meddling in its domestic affairs. Industry sources say similar delays are now occurring at other Chinese ports handling both coking and thermal coal.

One thing that's worth mentioning is the fact that there is no notch or cutout like the Galaxy Fold and also, the Huawei Mate X has a bezel-less design, so there are minimal bezels all around unlike the Fold. Let us know in the comment section.

After many rumours and speculations, it is finally confirmed that Huawei will indeed be launching a foldable phone thanks to an image that shows an advertisement banner being installed presumably at the Mobile World Congress 2019 venue in Barcelona.

The Galaxy Fold is priced from US$1,980 which is about RM8,051 and will be available in the second quarter of 2019 probably around April.
