The debate over the notch design is now old. The year 2019 is going to be a year of foldable devices with one phone manufacturer taking a dig at its competitors. The tussle has already begun.
Recently, in an interview with Business Insider, the CEO of Huawei’s mobile business, Richard Yu has taken a jab at Samsung. Yu said that Huawei had initially gone with the design similar to the Samsung Galaxy Fold but later decided to kill it because it was “not good.”
“I feel having two screens, a front screen and a back screen, makes the phone too heavy,” Richard Yu said while talking about the Galaxy Fold. He further added, “We had several solutions, but we cancelled them. We had three projects simultaneously. We had something even better than that [the Samsung Galaxy Fold], killed by me.”
Both Galaxy Fold and Mate X are a foldable smartphone running Android but their working principles are not the same. Galaxy Fold is basically a device with two displays and folds on the inside while Huawei’s Mate X has just a single screen that folds outward, eliminating the need of a second display.
Both the designs have their flaws but from the initial impression, pundits have already declared Huawei’s Mate X the winner. But which one of them actually delivers on its promise is something that can only be said once they are out for consumers to buy.
