Huawei joins queue of new folding phones with Mate X

Tech Tools: Flexible screen wraps around front and back of device and points to future

 

The last couple of weeks have all been about folding phones. First there was Samsung with the Galaxy Fold, which changes from a phone to a tablet in a matter of seconds, and allows you to have up to three apps open at the same time.

Then, a matter of days later, the Huawei Mate X made its debut, with a flexible screen that wraps around the front and back of the device. So it seems the future is flexible – and expensive. Both phones are over the €2,000 mark, which may be a little too rich for the average consumer’s blood. But it looks like the future may be flexible.
