Huawei's foldable smartphone officially measures at 11 millimeters in thickness when folded outward, meaning the display has a curvature of at least 11 millimeters to fold out.
"The fact that a phone can fold will not be able to attract consumers", said local think tank KT Economics and Management, adding comfortable UX and UI and apps optimized for a large screen are some of the prerequisites for the wider adoption of two-in-one devices by general consumers.
If it does decide to manufacture the device, it's likely to be expensive; Samsung's Galaxy Fold will set buyers back €2,000 at launch, and Huawei's "faster" Mate X foldable will cost a whopping €2,299.
And now, the latest smartphone maker to join the fold is Oppo.
When opened in "tablet mode", the Mate X sports an 8-inch screen compared to Samsung's 7.3-inch offering, with a resolution of 2480 x 2200 and an aspect ratio of 8:7.1. But more importantly, the 6.6-inch display on the front that you get when folded beats the Galaxy Fold'stiny 4.6-inch display. In its current form, the device looks more like a soap bar than a 5G-connected phone.
Speaking after unveiling Huawei's foldable phone concept, Mr Yu justified the higher price of the Mate X by saying he believed it was "definitely" superior to Samsung's new device.
This is even more than Samsung's Galaxy Fold, which was unveiled last week and will be priced from $1,980 when it goes on sale in some markets in April.
Samsung took the opposite approach to Huawei by putting its folding screen on the inside of its device, with another smaller screen on the front panel for use when its is closed.
Huawei said its Mate X would be available later in the year to coincide with the launch of 5G networks, which are expected to begin limited rollout in the summer in the United Kingdom and elsewhere.
