Comparative analysis of Samsung GalaxyFold and Huawei MateX
As early as 2007, Sony showed a flexible OLED screen. But because it was too advanced, flexible OLEDs did not have any commercial value at the time. Later, Samsung, LG and BOE began the development of flexible OELD.
At this year's CES show, LG's flexible screen TV has been announced and officially entered the commercial stage.
The mobile phone with flexible screen technology is also rumored. First, Softwoo released the Flexuai FlexPai, and Xiaomi also announced the video of the double-folded mobile phone.
Samsung GalaxyFold and Huawei MateX, which were unveiled on February 21 and 24, are the closest folding phones to us.
Among them, Samsung GalaxyFold uses "double screen folding".
The Samsung GalaxyFold is equipped with two screens, one on the outside of the fuselage, suitable for folding.
In the folded state, the outer screen is 4.6 inches, the resolution is 1960x 840; the expanded screen is 7.3 inches, the ratio is 4.2:3, and the resolution is 2152x 1536.
It adopts Snapdragon 855+X505G baseband and supports 5G network. Dual battery total 4380mAh, support fast wireless charging and reverse wireless charging. Rear three shots, the front screen front double shot, the external screen front single shot, a total of 6 cameras.
Expanded thickness 6mm, folded 13-17mm, currently has four colors: Cosmic Black, Space Silver, Mars Green and Astro Blue, 12GB+512GB price of 1980 US dollars, about 13288 yuan, officially on April 26.
Huawei's Huawei MateX solution is "single-screen folding".
After folding up, a large screen will become two pieces located on the front and back of the fuselage. The front screen is 6.6 inches, the resolution is 2480x 1148, the ratio is 19.5:9, and the back screen is a 6.38 inch 2480x 892 resolution display with a ratio of 25:9. Expanded to 8 inches on the screen, 8:7.1 ratio, resolution 2480x 2200.
The Kirin 980+ Barong 50005G baseband is used to support 5G networks. Rear three shots, no front camera.
The unfolded thickness is 5.4 mm, folded 11 mm, and weighs 295 grams. The 8G+512GB is priced at 2,299 euros, or about 17,500 yuan, and will be sold in the second half of this year.
In terms of product form, both folding phones have their own advantages. In terms of the integrity of the screen, Huawei seems to be more comfortable. Whether it is folded or unfolded, MateX has a much larger screen area than GalaxyFold.
And MateX doesn't have any "bangs" and the screen border is very uniform.
However, MateX also has problems. Since the glass cannot be repeatedly bent at normal temperature, the folding screens of MateX and GalaxyFold are made of plastic. Plastics are far less resistant to scratch than glass. Although the GalaxyFold may be scratched due to foreign matter entering the inside of the screen in the folded state. However, MateX in the form of "outer folding" obviously has a greater chance of screen scratching.
In terms of batteries, GalaxyFold and MateX both use the design of a battery on the left and right sides of the fuselage. The GalaxyFold is 4380mAh and supports fast charging, wireless charging and reverse wireless charging. The MateX battery has a capacity of 4500 mAh and a maximum charging power of 55 W, but there is no mention of wireless charging.
For storage, the GalaxyFold comes with a 12GB+ 512GB storage combination and MateX is 8GB+ 512GB.
In this case, which one do you prefer for Samsung GalaxyFold and Huawei MateX?
