The Huawei Mate X will be featured at 5G Malaysia showcase

It’s a busy 5G week in Malaysia and Huawei will be showcasing seven different products and services at the upcoming 5G Malaysia Showcase in Putrajaya. One of the interesting devices is the Mate X, Huawei’s first foldable smartphone which was unveiled at MWC19.

The Huawei Mate X is claimed to be the fastest 5G foldable smartphone as it supports both NSA (Non-standalone) and SA (Standalone) 5G connectivity with download speeds of up to 4.6Gbps. Unlike the Samsung Galaxy Fold, this foldable device has a single screen that folds outwards.

When it is folded, you get a 6.6″ screen on the front while the rear gets a 6.38″ display. The Mate X can unfold to transform into a large 8″ tablet experience. The back of the device features a triple camera setup which is believed to be the same as the Huawei P30.

The media event is happening on the 19th April 2019 and it isn’t clear if they will be showcasing the foldable device to the public during the weekend. To learn more about the Huawei Mate X, you can check out our first impressions or watch our video below:

According to Huawei, they have secured the largest number of 5G commercial contracts with over 30 operators worldwide. They have also delivered more than 40,000 5G base stations.
