When looking for top-quality foldable phones, two brands come on top. Samsung Galaxy Fold and the Huawei Mate X are the top racers on this track of smartphones.
Both models bring their own specifications and unique features, which you can’t ignore. Hence, the right selection approach would be evaluating the features in a comparative manner.
This post will help you evaluate both the phones!
Galaxy Fold screens
Galaxy Fold from Samsung turns into a book-like shape and brings out a large screen in front of you. The screen stays protected with its outer cover. But when you open, one screen comes on top of a cover.
- The screen contains 6.4 inches of exterior size.
- The screen contains 7.3 inches of interior size.
Huawei Mate X screens
The screen folding approach is completely opposite in Huawei. The screen conveniently hugs the frame. Plus, there is one screen working like three different ones, depending on the method of holding your phone.
- The screen provides 8 inches of an OLED display.
- The front screen size is 6.6 inches in its closed state.
- The rear screen size is 6.38 inches in its closed state.

2. Notch and the wing
Galaxy Fold comes with a wide enough eyebrow notch. The notch stays present on its screen of 7.3 inches. The notch is a blacked-out space including sensors and 2 camera lenses.
Mate X contains 8 inches of a display without any notch. However, it offers a wing, which is a curved handhold. Along with that, you can find its cameras on its back in a single line. The handle wing can require some work to get a hold of it. However, it saves from losing the screen size.
3. The cameras
Galaxy Fold contains 6 cameras in total. You can find 3 cameras on its back and 2 cameras on its front cover. What you need to think about is the convenience and quality of options you get. If multiple cameras confuse you a little, this many cameras might bother you.
Huawei Mate X offers two fewer cameras than Galaxy Fold. You get 4 cameras in the P30 series of Huawei Mate X.
4. 4G and 5G
Galaxy Fold allows you to choose 4G or 5G as per your needs. It keeps the options open for you.
On the other hand, Huawei Mate X provides 5G configuration only. It is supposed to give you the most advanced foldable phone. However, you become limited to one kind of configuration only.
Galaxy Fold will be sold in some selected markets on April 26 at a price $1,980.
Huawei Mate X will be sold in some selected markets during June and/or July. The price is going to be $2,600.
