During an interview with Business Insider, Huawei CEO spoke a little about the development of Mate X. The folding smartphone had been given a different design.
In this sense Richard Yu revealed that originally the company had developed a prototype similar to the Galaxy Fold. However, the Chinese giant was not satisfied with the design and moved on.
The CEO states that having two screens, one at the front and one at the rear makes it heavy equipment. Yu says they had several models on the table but dismissed several because they were "bad".
Huawei Mate X takes a different approach than Samsung Galaxy Fold
Firstly, Mate X approaches the concept of folding smartphone differently. When closed, we continue to enjoy a panel that takes advantage of all the physical space.
Already the Galaxy Fold has its front screen covered by a huge frame. Additionally, when opened, Mate X has a larger screen than Galaxy Fold. Both features are somewhat subjective but are considered advantages by Huawei.
So we have another difference. Galaxy Fold does not close completely on itself, leaving some space left in the hinge. Already Mate X folds out as a kind of back cover and fits on the side forming a more consistent equipment.
However, there are pros and cons to both designs. But thankfully Huawei has chosen a completely different design and in fact, if we look at the news, the Mate X is getting a lot of attention.
In short, Huawei is not a newcomer to the market and has all the technology to compete with Samsung. In this sense, they were also able to bet on super recent technology and receive attention. It remains to be seen how practical these folding smartphones will be.
