Barcelona: Chinese technology giant Huawei on Sunday unveiled its much-anticipated and most talked-about Mate X 5G foldable phone at euro 2,299 that could take the digital world by storm.
Powered by the company's Kirin 980 processor, the phone comes with 6.6-inch dual display panel and offers a FullView display. When unfolded, it transforms into an 8-inch tablet only 5.4mm thick.
