At Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Huawei launched a foldable 5G-enabled smartphone – Huawei Mate X.
The Mate X is the world’s thinnest foldable phone, the world’s first 5G phone, and it also has the world’s fastest charging solution. The Huawei Mate X will start at a whopping price of 2299 euros ($2600).
Huawei said it has an advantage over other companies launching 5G smartphones because it provides the full range of equipment needed to get wireless networks up and running.
The Huawei Mate X is a tablet-phone hybrid with an exterior folding display Huawei calls “FullView display,” which is wrapped around the outside of the device.
The Mate X features a Kirin 980 SoC with Balong 5000 5G modem. It comes with 8GB of RAM and 512GB of internal storage. The Mate X battery is 4,500mAh and supports 55W Huawei SuperCharge, which promises an 85% charge in just 30 minutes.
It supports a dual-SIM card, or you can also use one for Huawei’s Nano-Memory Cards. The Mate X has triple camera setup — 40 MP (Wide Angle Lens) + 16 MP (Ultra Wide Angle Lens) + 8 MP (Telephoto).
The Mate X is 5.4mm thick when open and 11mm thick when closed. There are a 2-in-1 power button/fingerprint scanner and a USB-C port on one end of the grip.
When open, the single flexible 8-inch OLED display provides a tablet experience. The Mate X in tablet mode is not quite square with an aspect ratio of 8:7.1. Its 2,480 x 2,200 resolution results in 414 pixels per inch.
When closed, you can use the Mate X as a phone, the screen works as a dual-display. In this phone mode, the front part of the display that is illuminated is a 6.6-inch panel with the more familiar 19.5:9 aspect ratio.
The rear part of the display turns on when the phone is flipped around, with the Mate X offering a slightly smaller 6.38-inch panel with 25:9 aspect ratio.
Huawei said, the Kirin 980 and Balong 5000 modem are capable of 4.6Gbps downlink speeds, which is double the industry standard for 5G and ten times what’s currently available with 4G networks.

Huawei CFO lands China after 1028 days of detention in Canada
Huawei Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Meng Wanzhou has finally landed in China, carried on a Chinese government-chartered plane at an airport in Shenzhen after 1028 of detention in Canada. A Chinese ambassador and Huawei staff welcome the CFO back to her homeland.
This isn’t a simple welcome, it was made heroic by the Airport’s tower management and announced on the radio a message for Ms. Meng:
“The motherland will always be your strongest support. Ms. Meng Wanzhou welcomes you back!”
This is the first time when Huawei CFO landed in China since her arrest at Vancouver Airport in Canada. A Chinese statement media reported that Meng Wanzhou will have also to take pandemic prevention requirements and participate in a 14+7 day quarantine.
China’s foreign ministry statement:
“Facts have already fully proved that this is an incident of political persecution against Chinese citizens, with the purpose of suppressing China’s high-tech enterprises. The accusation of Ms. Meng Wanzhou’s so-called “fraud” is purely fabricated. The actions of the United States and Canada are typical arbitrary detentions.” said China’s Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying.
The story continues as meng also delivered a returning keynote on her return after a long time to the people. She said the long wait in an overseas country is full of struggle and suffering. On the other hand, now the temperature of her hometown is making her unspeakable.
“Motherland i am back” said Meng
On December 1, 2028, Canadian police detained Huawei CFO while she was transiting at an airport in Vancouver, Canada. Subsequently, the Canadian Ministry of Justice held a press conference to announce the news of Meng Wanzhou’s arrest.
In March 2019, Canada approved Meng Wanzhou’s extradition order to the United States. Since then, Huawei has sued the Canadian government for the arrest of Meng Wanzhou.
On May 27, 2020, the Supreme Court of British Columbia ruled that the Meng Wanzhou case met the double criminality principle of extradition requirements and decided not to release.
On August 18, 2021, the trial of Meng Wanzhou’s extradition case in the British Columbia High Court was all concluded, and the judge did not immediately announce the verdict. The judge decided to hold a meeting on October 21 and agreed to announce the date of the verdict.
On September 25, 2021, after a deal with the U.S. regarding the latest settlement on the case, Meng Wanzhou left Canada on a chartered plane by the Chinese government and reached her homeland.
