At Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2019, Huawei unveiled the World’s Fastest 5G Foldable Phone, HUAWEI Mate X, redefining smartphone design with a foldable form factor.
When folded, the device is a huge display smartphone with a 6.6-inch screen, and when opened, it turns into a slim tablet with an 8-inch screen. The new multi-form factor revolutionises both productivity and entertainment experiences on a mobile device.
Larking Huang, Managing Director, Huawei Consumer Business Group Australia, said: “At Huawei, we’re committed to developing innovative and market-cutting edge products and the HUAWEI Mate X is a testament to just that. Its revolutionary form factor is achieved by Huawei’s relentless effort in research and development and our continued commitment to delivering products that meet and exceed customer expectations.
“HUAWEI Mate X combines 5G, foldable screen, AI and an all-new mode of interfacing to provide consumers with an unprecedented user experience. This is an exciting time for the brand and we’re looking forward to bringing the new device the Australian market.”
Introducing the HUAWEI Mate X
A result of Huawei’s bold testing with novel smartphone form factors, the 2-in-1 smartphone and tablet, the Huawei Mate X features a high strength flexible OLED panel and a falcon wing mechanical hinge.
With an exemplary design that blends style with technology, the revolutionary Falcon Wing Mechanical Hinge supports movement, balancing between the design and technology. When unfolded, the screen is a perfectly flat surface, and when folded, the two halves of the screen fit snugly to the frame. The two modes – smartphone and tablet modes – transition seamlessly from one to another.
5G Smart Living with a Bigger Screen
HUAWEI Mate X is a multi-form factor that unlocks a new step towards 5G interfacing era to reinvent productivity and entertainment. The innovative flexible OLED foldable FullView display, unique falcon wing mechanical hinge and the industry’s best 5G modem chipset Balong 5000 combine to deliver a new mode of interfacing, in which the large-screen experience and portability function side by side.
The expansive viewing area lends well to both productivity and entertainment scenarios – everything from editing a document to reading feels better on a larger screen. In addition, consumers are able to drag images from their photo gallery to their emails in split-screen mode. The larger screen allows consumers to do more with their time.
Huawei’s flagship smartphones have always come with powerful cameras, and the HUAWEI Mate X is no different. Inside the smartphone’s slim body is the latest Leica cameras, supporting the most advanced imaging features to date. The foldable design makes it possible for the camera system to play the role of both front and rear cameras. When folded, the HUAWEI Mate X shows a view finder on both sides, so even the subjects in the frame can contribute to the creative process.
Moreover, the HUAWEI Mate X comes with an integrated Fingerprint Power Button that enables users to power up the device with one tap, offering a secure and convenient experience.

Equipped with the world’s first 7nm 5G multi-mode modem chipset Balong 5000, the chipset has unprecedented 5G download speeds, at 4.6Gps on the Sub-6GHz band (theoretical). Balong 5000 is also the world’s first chipset to support both SA and NSA architectures, users will not need a device upgrade to continue enjoying 5G connectivity. The HUAWEI Mate X’s dual SIM feature supports both 4G and 5G.
A new, purpose-designed 4,500mAh battery is packed in HUAWEI Mate X’s 5.4mm-thick body, combined with the AI smart power saving technology, fulfilling the demand for greater battery performance in the 5G era. 55W HUAWEI SuperCharge tops the battery up quickly to minimise downtime needed for charging.
