The Race of Foldable phone is not new, Samsung being the pioneer of announcing foldable phone first announced Galaxy Fold. However this Marathon is joint by Huawei with giving tough competition to its rival by introducing the rollable phone, Huawei Mate X. Huawei Mate X was also announced at MWC 2019 in Barcelona. Samsung and Huawei were the top brands for launching something new in MWC Barcelona. The device when compared is quite different with negligible similarities. Design of Samsung Galaxy Fold is quite different that Huawei Mate x.
Huawei CEO Richard Yu is not happy with Samsung Foldable device saying that it is not worth buying. While giving an interview to Business Insider, the CEO of Huawei said that at one time, the Chinese tech giant was working on three foldable devices simultaneously. Out of three one looked like Samsung Galaxy Fold but it was better than it, still, they rejected it as it was a bad design.
While speaking about the Galaxy Fold, Richard said that:
“I feel having two screens, a front screen and a back screen, makes the phone too heavy”,
Both the device have flexible displays with delicate hinges which unfolds to into a tablet. Best thing is that both the devices are 5G compatible. Right now the exact prices are not known but definitely, these devices will be very expensive.
The basic difference in the design can be seen as Galaxy fold has one small screen outside, however a large screen inside. However Mate X is using one screen in three different ways, isn’t’ it better? Yes, the shape of the device changes the way you hold the device.
Samsung foldable device has 4G and 5G compatibility and six cameras however Mate x has four cameras and overall 5G compatibility. Moreover, Galaxy Fold hinge is not completely flat, compared to Huawei who has a delicate hinge for which they are proud of.
Whichever device you like, both are quite expensive. Soo other companies will also launch foldable device and prices will go down.
