Samsung Teases Early Blockchain Partners For Galaxy S10 Phone

Samsung Teases Early Blockchain Partners For Galaxy S10 Phone

Once we get past the cool factor, there needs to be a real productivity boost when jumping to the larger screen, and I'm not sure the Galaxy Fold and Mate X are there just yet. Samsung struck first with its Galaxy Fold model for MWC 2019 but Huawei's Mate X makes it look like a prototype.

At the Unpacked event in San Francisco last week, South Korean chaebol Samsung introduced its latest flagship Galaxy S10 series smartphones. But Richard Yu, CEO of the consumer products business at Huawei, insisted that the innovation that has gone into the phone makes the hefty cost worth it, in particular the inclusion of long-awaited 5G technology.

But when opened out, the Mate X becomes an 8-inch tablet - a trait which the Chinese communications conglomerate hopes will render obsolete the need to carry two separate devices.

According to Ray, when he claimed that T-Mobile's 5G would launch in the first six months of the year, he hoped that phone and chip makers would be ready with devices that supported low-band spectrum, which is what T-Mobile will use to power its 5G network. The device is fairly thin, at 5.4mm in the unfolded position, making it much easier to slip into your pocket than the 17mm Galaxy Fold.

Folding phones are definitely going to be one of 2019's things, but it's hard to tell from the glance we've had so far exactly how they will fit into the future of smartphones. The Mate X's 6.4-inch rear panel sits next to a protruding grip section that clips the fold into place with a push-release.

Brian Shen asked in his post “how much do you really want such a device”, and we are asking you the same - would you buy this phone if it reaches the pipeline? BOE has reportedly supplied foldable screens for Huawei. The Mate X, on the other hand, features an 8-inch wraparound screen which folds out rather than in like its Samsung competitor.

When folded the Huawei Mate X looks like a "normal" phone that has two screens, front and rear.

That said, Samsung is yet to announce availability dates and prices for the Galaxy S10 5G.

The Mate X drops down to 8GB of RAM in contrast to Samsung's 12GB, while maintaining the 512GB of storage and its proprietary Nano memory card expansion slot.

"Since Samsung Display, a subsidiary of Samsung Electronics, is the only company that has the expertise and high yields to produce in-folding displays, no other company will be able to launch in-folding foldable devices for a while", the official said.

Mate X is powered by Huawei's Kirin 980 processor and Balong 5000 modem that allows it to deliver 5G speeds.
