Our favourite phone destroyer, JerryRigEverything, got his hands on the first foldable phone you can actually buy — the Royole Flexpie.
Browsing: Huawei Mate X
In its race to be the first to market with a foldable smartphone Samsung forgot the far more attractive proposition of being the best.
Huawei showed off its forthcoming Mate X folding phone-let (or tab-phone) at a media event in Johannesburg today. While we were able to hold the device, we weren’t allowed to fold it, so we had to rope in the help of a Huawei representative for the video below. Nonetheless, we got to check out the camera setup and try various apps, and our early impressions suggest it’s going to be a highly desirable — and crazy expensive — when it arrives in June or July of this year.
Foldable smartphones are here and they’re the most exciting thing to happen in the mobile sector in years… but you still shouldn’t buy one.
Huawei has unveiled its folding Mate X 2-in-1 smartphone and tablet at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona and it looks pretty amazing.
