Xiaomi just unveiled what could possibly be the cheapest 5G phone

Huawei announces $3,425 foldable display Mate X smartphone

HUAWEI Mate X First Look - The FOLDING FUTURE is Here! Even though both Huawei Mate X and Galaxy Fold are foldable phones, they are quite different in the way they fold.

It's also worth mentioning that the way the Mate X is designed seems to be a smarter choice compared with the Galaxy Fold, particularly how it needs only one panel instead of two.

In comparison, the Samsung Galaxy Fold's screen is 4.6-inches folded and 7.3-inches unfolded, while it's 17mm when closed. While Samsung has opted for a modern and business-minded look, Huawei has gone with a futuristic design.

Phone manufacturers have been gearing up for the 5G era, and Huawei is among them. Huawei also showed us a special case that protects the rear and side portion when in phone mode, but you have to take it out to switch to tablet mode and that takes away from the convenience somewhat. The device was revealed in a series of new photographs which were posted online earlier today. This is the primary reason that the Mate X will come to market at €2,299 in June, just two months after the Galaxy Fold lands at €2,000. As you've probably figured out from the title we're talking about the Samsung Galaxy S10e hands-on.

Samsung has offered a more detailed glimpse of its forthcoming £1,700 foldable smartphone in action.

Pakistan writes to UN Human Rights chief over alleged violations in Kashmir
The Pulwama attack last week escalated tensions between the two nuclear-armed south Asian neighbours and India blames Pakistan. He said India blamed Pakistan after the Pulwama attack to divert global attention from the issue.

Perhaps the biggest perk of the VIVE Focus Plus is that companies can easily port their PC VR based content to HTC's new system. 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. This new large screen allows three apps to be displayed at once.

And that bookish form factor makes more sense than Huawei's futuristic design. When it is folded, it still is thin with a thickness of just 11 mm. By nature of it being a flexible display means that we're dealing with a polymer material which is softer than glass, and thus also more scratch prone.

This device is coming hot on the heels of the Samsung Galaxy Fold, and it's among the pioneers that are paving the way for the foldable smartphone era. But it will be "a few years" before a significant mass of customers get their hands on 5G functionalities and foldable screens, he said.

In terms of specifications, the Mate X is very much a high end phone. It's massive, and rightly so considering the equally massive display it's expected to power, not to mention the 5G and Kirin 980 chipset.

Huawei, the world's third-largest smartphone vendor after Samsung and Apple, said it had taken the lead on developing phones for 5G - which promise super fast internet speeds for consumers and businesses - because it was also involved in developing the networks. We're not sure if the phone supports mmWave connectivity.
