Earlier this week, Huawei unveiled a bunch of new Android devices, including the Mate 20 Pro that's just the most exciting Android phone of the year. So it took the wraps off of its new Mate 20X, a gaming phone with impressive battery capacity. Huawei CEO Richard Yu confirmed that the company is making a good phone for next year, a device that will come with built-in 5G support. The Mate 20 X has a massive 7.2-inch screen that's bigger than any smartphone available so now. But Huawei insisted during the event that the device does not feel as big as that. The fact that we've reached the era of all-screen smartphone designs helps. The Mate 20 X has tiny bezels and a teardrop notch, design features that helped Huawei create a device that does not feel as bulky as a 7-inch tablet.
"We said in interviews during the Mate 20 launch. "Foldable 5G phones." Digital Trends says this is the first time that Huawei linked 5G to foldable phones, but that's not quite right. So, Huawei exec said that the foldable handset also wants to get its first 5G phone.
Yu did not reveal any details about the foldable phone, saying something cryptically that "maybe sometime we will launch that." , but not this time. "Yu then steered the conversation to the Mate 20 X saying that" before the foldable phones, we're introducing the Huawei Mate 20 X. It's 7.2-inch, but it's not that big, not so bulky. "
This may be as a teaser that the foldable phone could have been as big as the mate 20 X. Or we're just looking at the pre-prepared remarks from a CEO anxious to sell his company's latest devices. It's clear, however, that Huawei's foldable device, given the company's insistence on the importance of device size during the Mate 20 event
The CEO said the foldable smartphones will replace the laptop future. "Why are you silently using a computer?" Yu asked while answering a question about future mobile innovations after Huawei's IFA event. Probably because the smartphone display is too small for you. We want change that.
Recent reports have said that Huawei's first foldable phone could have a 7-inch or 8-inch display, and the Mate 20 X's screen size certainly fits within that range. That said, Huawei's first foldable phone will look like it or when it'll launch. Huawei rival Xiaomi, and we can expect to see plenty of 5G devices in stores next year, including Huawei handsets.
