In comparison, the Galaxy Z Fold 4 has a 7.6-inch foldable display and the outer display is around 6.2 inches.
Young also mentions that the Mate X3 will use UTG (Ultra Thin Glass) on the display, confirming what Huawei has been teasing recently. The Gizmochina report further states that it is presumably Kunlun glass, the same ultra-strong drop-resistant panel used in the Huawei Mate 50 Pro debuting in 2022. In addition, the aforementioned screens should have a 2K resolution.
Finally, the Huawei Mate X3 is the company’s first foldable device to include the recently announced satellite communication feature. In addition, we may also see the new Huawei Watch Ultimate alongside the launch of a foldable device next week.
Huawei makes great foldable smartphones; unfortunately, its government’s trade embargo does not allow them to enter the US market. Huawei devices also miss out on Google’s ecosystem and related applications for the same reasons.
