"Now we are letting you get up close to the device and giving you a glimpse of what you can unlock with this new form factor.The industry is buzzing about this being the most exciting smartphone innovation in years and we couldn't agree more", Samsung says. It's only been a couple of days since Samsung announced its own foldable phone, the Galaxy Fold - generating a lot of talk and hype around the new form-factor. This is different from Samsung's approach, which folds the screen inward and puts a smaller second screen on the back of the Galaxy Fold.

The Huawei Mate X will fold back-to-back with a patented Falcon Wing Mechanical Hinge that uses over one hundred components. Samsung Galaxy Fold: Specs and more The Galaxy Fold smartphone sports a regular thick 4.6-inch display which opens into a large 7.3-inch tablet.

When the phone is folded the "front" has a 6.6 inch display.

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). The Mate X has a large 8-inch screen with a resolution of 2480 x 2200 pixels and an 8:7.1 aspect ratio when unfolded with pretty thin bezels and no notch or "cliff" like the Samsung Galaxy Fold.

Huawei's foldable phone will sell for 2,299 euros ($2,600) when it goes on sale by midyear, even more than Samsung's which is priced starting at $1,980 (1,745 euros).

The Galaxy S10 features a triple camera module at the rear with a 12MP (f/2.4 aperture) telephoto lens, a 12MP (f/1.5 aperture) lens with OIS support and a 16MP ultra-wide sensor with f/2.2 aperture. The Mate X will come with 8GB of RAM and 512GB of storage space, which is more than enough for a phone, if you ask me. The US has told European countries that it may find it hard to work with anyone who uses Huawei products in their networks after raising security concerns about the company.
