Introducing the Huawei Mate X3: The Thinnest Folding Phone on the Market

Huawei has finally launched its latest folding phone, the Huawei Mate X3, which aims to compete fiercely with Samsung and its Galaxy Z Fold family. Even though Samsung’s latest Z Fold5 is set to launch in August, Huawei Mate X3 has a lot of potential to beat its historical rival. This is especially true when you consider that this mobile phone is one of the most complete in the market, despite the fact that nine out of ten foldables sold are Samsung phones.

Design and Features of the Huawei Mate X3

The Huawei Mate X3 boasts an exquisite and attention-grabbing design. In fact, it is the thinnest folding phone on the market, measuring just 5.33mm when unfolded. Its IPX8 certification also guarantees that the Huawei Mate X3 is waterproof, making it usable anywhere, including the beach or the pool. Furthermore, this model has everything you need on a technical level.

Multimedia and Display

The Huawei Mate X3 has two screens. The exterior screen measures 6.4 inches diagonally and has a Full HD+ resolution of 120 Hz refresh rate to ensure users get the best experience. The internal drop-down screen is much more powerful, boasting a 7.85-inch OLED LPTO panel with 2K resolution and a refresh rate of up to 120 Hz.

Processor and Storage

The Huawei Mate X3 features a Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor, although it lacks 4G connectivity due to US government restrictions. Its RAM is yet to be confirmed, but the phone will be available in three versions featuring 256, 512 GB or 1 TB of internal storage.

Camera and Battery

The Huawei Mate X3’s camera is perfect for anyone looking to capture their best memories. It features a 50-megapixel main sensor, a 13- and 12-megapixel wide-angle and telephoto lens, and an 8-megapixel front camera. Battery life is no issue either, as the phone features a 4,800 mAh battery with 66W wired fast charging, or 50W if you prefer wireless charging.

Harmony OS 3.1

Finally, the Huawei Mate X3 runs on Harmony OS 3.1 and will be available in China very soon. It comes in three versions, with the RAM yet to be confirmed. The prices are as follows:

– Huawei Mate X3 256GB: €1,715
– Huawei Mate X3 512GB: €1,862
– Huawei Mate X3 1TB: €2,156

In conclusion, the Huawei Mate X3 is indeed a high-end folding phone that will compete strongly against Samsung’s Galaxy Z Fold family. Its design is exquisite, while its features are excellent. The phone’s display is one of the most complete in the market, while its camera and battery more than meet the users’ expectations. With the Harmony OS 3.1, it is set to be a popular phone, especially in China.
