Oppo foldable concept phone looks eerily similar to Huawei Mate X

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.

Huawei revealed the Mate X phone on the eve of a four-day industry event in Spain to showcase new devices.

Open and close. Open and close.

The handset takes more than a few cues from the Mate X; it features one OLED display that folds outwards to create a tablet-sized screen, enabling both sides of the device to be used when the gadget is closed. When unfolded face-out to become more tablet-like, the screen size increases to 8-inches.

Those wanting the bigger S9+, Tesco is also offering this larger phone for as little as £29.49 a month, with 1GB of data, 5000 minutes and 5000 texts. After trying it out, we can now say it does look pretty good but most importantly it won't make you regret buying one of the bigger brothers.

Rory Cellan-Jones, the BBC's technology correspondent said, "Security concerns about Huawei's 5G kit are a shadow hanging over the whole of this year's Mobile World Congress".

Oppo's phone was originally going to be unveiled in its MWC keynote, where the company showed off a phone with 10x optical zoom, but VP Brian Shen said the foldable was pulled because it wouldn't have been "meaningful".

Phone manufacturers have been gearing up for the 5G era, and Huawei is among them.

Huawei here has opted for a novel asymmetric design where one half of the screen is narrower than the other one.

Huawei has also included a neat little feature called Mirror shooting that lets you see your picture as it's being taken. According to the Chinese firm, Mate X will be able to download content at a rate of 4.6Gbps, which is ten times faster than 4G networks.

From what I've seen so far, I do feel like the Mate X has a far better design than its Samsung rival.

The Huawei foldable smartphone will retail for 2,299 Euro ($2,610) in an 8GB RAM and 512GB Storage configuration. Huawei has included a high-capacity 4500mAh battery and the new 55W HUAWEI SuperCharge charger can charge the battery to 85% in just 30 mins. The fingerprint-reader is integrated in the power switch button. The Huawei Mate X comes with a spectacular design which embodies what we think a foldable device should look like.

Samsung Fold and Mate X have adopted different folding ways to fold their screens. However, as great as the screens are, it still faces the same challenges all foldable phones need to overcome.
