However, as well as flexible cell phone South Korean, the low inviting price of Mate X is its weak point. If the representative of Samsung will come out costing US $1.980, the Huawei is even more expensive: US $2,607 (something around R $9,820, not counting taxes).
But for those who test the device anyway and have a good change stopped at the bank, can use the website of imported Gear Best to bring the launch to Brazil. And for the "Bagatela " of R $16,025.16, in the Chinese version, without some additional functions such as Google services and R $16,166.48 in the global version, already with the additional features installed.
The appliance starts to be sold in the middle of this year, initially in China. Huawei did not disclose whether the other countries will receive the model on this date, but did not discard the possibility of selling it in Brazil. Would anyone be willing to disburse that money?
The device was presented in a pre-event of Huawei, on the eve of the first official day of Mobile World Congress 2019, the largest mobile technology fair in the world, headquartered in Barcelona. And it presents credentials of respect: when the device is folded, the user has a dual screen OLED smartphone, each of which has 6.6 inches.
When the screens turn into one, the device turns into a tablet with an 8-inch display. The hinge design responsible for this process bears the name of Falcon Wing. The project has more than 100 components, it took three years to be developed and is patented by Huawei.
In addition to having a larger screen than the Galaxy Fold, the Mate X is also thinner than its main competitor: it has 5.4 mm thickness when open and 11 mm when closed (against 6.9 mm open and 17 mm closed Fold).
In addition, its way of transforming a smartphone to a tablet also occurs differently from the Fold: it opens in the opposite direction, with the second screen getting on the back of the handset and not on the inside, as with the Samsung representative. At first glance, it is noted that the display has smaller edges, with better use of it.
