Why do you want to make a folding screen phone?

In different scenarios, people often have different needs for mobile phones. When you commute, you should look at the light and portable, and when you are in office entertainment, you want to have a screen that is as large as possible. In response to user pain points, Huawei R&D engineers began to consider creating a “Transformer” to change the screen size through the folded state . Starting from the consumer demand scenario, they chose a flexible folding-based folding scheme . The external fold makes full use of the screen resources, which can effectively perform dual-screen interaction.

Where is the folding design difficult?

HUAWEI Mate X adopts a four-layer structure design. The top layer is the screen protection layer of polymer material , the second layer is a flexible flexible screen , the third layer is a soft plastic support piece , and the bottom layer is a rotating shaft . The most important part of the design of the shaft is a comprehensive set of mathematics, physics, materials science, industrial design and many other disciplines, which almost determines the success or failure of the folding machine.

After establishing the rotating shaft as the core design, Huawei’s mobile phone R&D team must first face the challenge that the existing solutions in the market cannot meet the requirements and the supply chain technology resources are limited. In order to solve this problem, the talents of Huawei’s mobile phone R&D team were quickly concentrated, and experts responsible for high-precision sports organizations were also mobilized to solve the design problems of the shaft.

From the movement to the design principle of sub-function blocks, to the choice of materials, and the like to try different surface treatments, the experimental design verification Huawei repeated rounds finalize the shaft prototyping.

  • 2.  5.4mm body single side thickness

Thin qualitative, called the Heart hand

Compared with traditional smart phones, HUAWEI Mate X has more hardware features and a richer experience in a limited space, but still maintains a simple appearance. Whether it is unfolded or closed, it perfectly reflects the advantages of the full screen , and the whole machine is natural.

At the same time, HUAWEI Mate X also follows the user’s usage habits, and sets the screen ratio in the folded state to 19.5:9, which is consistent with the screen ratio of the mainstream straight phone. In the expanded state, the screen ratio of HUAWEI Mate X is 8:7.1, and the large screen in the form of a tablet has a stunning visual effect.

The Huawei mobile phone R&D team designed the thinning as the basic requirement of the first folding screen mobile phone, and the thin and light body also puts more demanding requirements on materials, endurance experience and grip comfort. In the end, the R&D team gave the solution. In the unfolded state, the HUAWEI Mate X has a single-sided thickness of only 5.4mm. In the folded state, the thickness of the body is only 11mm, which still maintains a good grip and achieves a balance between large screen and light weight.

  • 3.  4.6Gpbs download Speed

3 seconds to download a 1GB video 

HUAWEI Mate X is equipped with Huawei’s strongest 5G multimode terminal chip – 7nm Barong 5000 and Kirin 980 chip 4.

How fast is it?

In the 5G communication baseband that can be tested, in the mainstream sub-6GHz frequency band of 5G, only Barron 5000 can support 100MHz*2CC in the downlink, that is, 200MHz bandwidth, and the theoretical peak reaches 4.6Gbps, which is far ahead of the industry level. According to the test, you can download a 1G video for 3 seconds at the earliest .

The strength of 5G strength is a comprehensive competition, which should be judged from multiple dimensions such as standard leading capability, chip R&D and manufacturing, system equipment R&D and deployment, mobile phone R&D and production, business development and operation, and operator capabilities.

The unique 5G technology advantage of HUAWEI Mate X is actually based on Huawei’s deep understanding of the entire network. Huawei has a full range of capabilities including chips, terminals, cloud services and networks, and its strong end-to-end capabilities make HUAWEI Mate X an obvious innate advantage and win on the 5G starting line.

  • 4.  5G mobile phone in one step

Supports NSA / SA networking 

Why is HUAWEI Mate X a 5G mobile phone in one step?

The 5G architecture includes NSA (Not-Standalone, non-independent networking) and SA (Standalone, independent networking). The first phase is NSA, which can also be called transition 5G, and the second phase is SA, which is the ultimate form of 5G network architecture. .

Selecting the NSA architecture can help operators achieve faster 5G network construction in the initial stage, but in order to achieve continuous coverage and support all 5G scenarios, the promotion to SA is imperative.

The HUAWEI Mate X with the Baron 5000 can support both the NSA and the SA networking . The carrier can access normally regardless of whether the carrier is an NSA network or an SA network. It is a 5G mobile phone with a “part” in place.

  • 5.  Safer 5G mobile phone

Security protection upgrade, privacy protection optimization

Why is the 5G phone more secure?

User identity information encryption: User identity information (SUPI) is easily attacked at 2G/3G/4G. In 5G, the user identity information will be sent in encrypted form to prevent attacks and prevent identity from being copied.

Full protection mechanism is supported: In 2G/3G/4G, the communication between the user and the network cannot provide integrity protection, and the attacker can still tamper with the user’s communication content. 5G already supports the user plane integrity protection mechanism to prevent such tampering attacks.

  • 6.  New interaction has a pattern

Multi-screen interaction, intelligent collaboration

What kind of smart new experience will the folding screen bring?

The new form of mobile phone also brings consumers an unprecedented interactive experience . The large screen of HUAWEI Mate X can be divided into two. When the split screen is browsed, the dual screen can also be multitasking and coordinated.

For example, before the user wants to use the mobile phone to send an e-mail to attach an attachment, it needs to reciprocate multiple times in the same window. In the folding screen, users can easily realize dual-screen multi-tasking interaction, directly dragging pictures or texts to email attachments; also support multi-window operation, watching video and chat simultaneously, and entertainment.

  • 7.  Dual screen live preview when shooting

When many boys are shooting their girlfriends, they are always dismissed from the wrong angle. They have made “Xishi” “East Shi”. Innovative folding screen design, mirrored smart shot, dual screen preview. While shooting her girlfriend, she can also see herself from the secondary screen. When does she click the shutter? Give the decision to your girlfriend!

On the other hand, the HUAWEI Mate X’s rear camera can be used as a front camera, providing a new way to self-timer.
