Huawei's foldable phone is called the Mate X, poster and specs leaks

Designer Imagines 'Folding iPhone X' in New Concept

Whereas the Galaxy Fold's Infinity Display folds inward, Huawei's device's screen folds outward. You end up with a 6.6-inch "main" display that sticks to the usual 19:5:9 aspect ratio (2480 x 1148 resolution) we've seen from full screen phones. Xiaomi have a tri-fold design with the outer edges folding back around on themselves. Samsung's inwards folding design here will be much less prone to scratches, however the Mate X will be a quite more fragile phone in this regard. We find it hard to imagine that Apple isn't, or hasn't already considered such a foldable phone but given the sheer number of projects Apple must kill yearly, it isn't beyond the realms of possibility that it's been canned already.

Broadly speaking, the Mate X is an 8-inch tablet that folds in half to form a regular 6.6-inch smartphone.

While certain apps and types of content won't necessarily fill the screen - a problem especially for watching video on the device - some games seem as though they'll be modified to support the Galaxy Fold's unique aspect ratio.

Other key details include a 4,500 mAh battery (in two components split one into each "side" of the screen), and a 55W Super Charging system which can return 85% life to the phone after 30 minutes charging.
