Short description Huawei Mate X

This is a smartphone on Android 9 Pie with a very fast and productive processor, with a huge touchscreen size, with a very cool camera that has 4 modules (40 MP Wide, 8 MP Telephoto, 16 MP UltraWide, TOF 3D camera), unfortunately, there is no front camera for this model. The body of Huawei Mate X has received a non-standard form factor: folder (flip phone) with a flexible touch screen. This type of case began to be popular in 2019-2020, this became possible primarily due to the technologies, and, of course, marketers had to justify the inflated expectations of customers for new products. And Huawei Mate X has such features: additional small screen with a diagonal 6.6" AMOLED, a slot for two SIM cards, folding screen (so that the phone body can be folded).

Versions: TAH-AN00.

Android version and market relevance

Announcement! We need more new products from Huawei. This time these guys announced Huawei Mate X. This is a 5G-smartphone on Android 9 Pie in 2019.

More detailed characteristics of this smartphone you can see below on the page, and in short we will describe the most important of them. So, firstly, there are no updates for this model the manufacturer does not release, so feel free to search for other smartphones in 2019 and choose from them. And, secondly, Huawei Mate X has a slot for two SIM cards and supports their mutual work (all smartphones with 2 sim cards). And thirdly, Huawei Mate X it works in the fifth generation (5G) networks, so you can work on a smartphone in the mobile Internet with the same high speed as at home on a Wi-Fi connection (up to 100 Mb/s). Next about the screen, the camera and the processor with memory.

Screen, body and battery

Please note that the body of the smartphone has a flip-shape form. Yes, we were not mistaken. Huawei Mate X is really a flip smartphone on Android. This feature of the body affects many other parameters of this model. Here is a list of the most important:

  • The diagonal of the main screen in the open position can be doubled, because the screen is flexible (see the catalog for all smartphones with flexible screens);
  • The smartphone has an additional 6.6-inch AMOLED-screen, which you need when the flip body is folded (all smartphones with two screens are also collected in our catalog);
  • Higher battery capacity because there is more physical space for the battery;
  • The weight of the device has become one and a half or even two times more than that of similar models;
  • The main camera can be used as a selfie camera, so you get better quality portrait photos;
  • And, of course, the high price of this model, because the cost of manufacturing technology for smartphones with flexible screens is still very high.;
  • But, the undoubted plus of such a flip smartphone is the uniqueness and interest of the friends, colleagues and partners around you, perhaps even some special status.

We advise you to immediately watch the video reviews and photos from real life of this smartphone. All promotional materials from the manufacturer will only show the pros of this flip smartphone. But with its high price, you need to find out both the pros and cons of this model before buying. Now let’s move on to describing other important characteristics in more detail.

Flexible 8-inch OLED touchscreen occupies almost the entire area of the front panel of the smartphone Huawei Mate X. It also stands out from other models on the market with its thin bezels between the outer edges of the body and the screen. An edge-to-edge screen covers from 80% to 90% of the front panel.. Body thickness 5.4 mm puts the battery in it in capacity 4 500 mAh. As a result, these three important characteristics give us such an idea of the device — huge smartphone with very thin case and normal battery.

Main camera and selfie camera

An excellent camera with multiple lenses (40 MP Wide + 8 MP Telephoto + 16 MP UltraWide + TOF 3D camera) was received by Huawei Mate X. And now you can definitely stand out with your photos among your friends. At least, thanks to the fact that two or more cameras will help you shoot excellent portraits with the Bokeh effect, and take photos with zooming, without much loss in image quality. Since this is a flip smartphone, the main camera can also be used for portraits and selfies. It’s really convenient and simple, besides, the quality of photos on the main camera is often much better than on similar front cameras.

Processor and Internal Memory

A smartphone without a processor will not work. And the better the processor, the faster the smartphone works. Huawei Mate X received 8-core processor HiSilicon Kirin 980. The amount of RAM in it is 8 GB.

But, more importantly, it′s the amount of built-in memory for storing your information (photo, video, music, etc.). Here you will receive 512 GB. You can still do this — buy a smartphone with a minimum amount of memory to save a bit, and buy a memory card Nano Memory up to 256 GB, because in this model there is a slot for memory cards.

Price for Huawei Mate X: buy or not to buy?

Price Huawei Mate X at the start of sales was $2150. A smartphone with this price level got into the price segment “Flagships smartphones from $500” and got a very powerful processor, a huge touch screen, and the front camera is  with a super cool main camera, and you can make very high quality and creative photos with it.

If you want to buy Huawei Mate X, you can choose any online store or offline electronics store, the main thing is to have a guarantee for the smartphone and the desired version of the model you have chosen.

Before buying, if you have the opportunity, it is better to hold the phone in your hands, check the screen, the quality of the photo and video, look at the smoothness and speed of the interface. Never buy a “cat in a bag”, be sure to check everything before buying. Today, good smartphones are worth a lot of money, so it′s better to spend an extra ten minutes to eventually buy the model that will work well one or two years and help you in everything.
