Nowhere near as innovative as the Huawei Mate X, the Xiaomi Mi 9 takes our next award for its truly wonderful value for money. The design seems quite alike to 8-inch display of Huawei Mate X on unfolding.
There are other pros and cons to the new approach of Huawei - like the fact that the Mate X's display folds perfectly flat when it's open and lies flush against itself when closed, but the grip means it doesn't lay flat on a table when open.
Nevertheless, the Huawei Mate X looks like a convincing foray into foldable tech, especially for a first generation.
"Depending on how competitors such as Samsung respond - Huawei might become more dominant", Barrell said, adding that, in his opinion, sales of the new Huawei smartphone will be "brilliant in Asia".
However, he went on to add: "The Mate X clearly shows that Huawei is a technology innovation leader".
The two screens can help a lot in multitasking, such as browsing the internet on one as the other is on a YouTube video.
This half comprises a 6.4-inch screen in folded mode. The smartphone changes the display as you fold or unfold the screen and adjust the contents on display accordingly.
Samsung has offered a more detailed glimpse of its forthcoming £1,700 foldable smartphone in action. However, the rumor mill has already leaked some vital information on these phones to give us an idea about which is the better device between the two. Not everything will appear in that ratio on your phone, but if you watch a lot of movies on Netflix it may be ideal for you. When folded, it produces a 4.6-inch display on the exterior, which is when the device can be used like a phone.
The Galaxy S10 8GB RAM/ 128GB storage variant (in Prism Black, Prism Blue, and Prism White) is priced at Rs. 66,900, while the 8GB RAM/ 512GB storage version (Prism White color) will go for Rs. 84,900.
In an era where companies such as Xiaomi are challenging the high-cost of smartphones, the leaders in this field show no signs of reducing prices.
Now that the Galaxy S10 is official, Samsung's next big release is the Note 10, which is expected to happen in the summer of this year.
It should be noted than neither the Mate X nor the Galaxy Fold have been made accessible to the press to actually touch, use and get a feeling of the phones. It will be available sometime around mid-2019.
