New Huawei Mate X5: the foldable improves in battery and launches 5G to compete with the rest of the brands

Folding phones are more refined than ever. Models like the Xiaomi MIX Fold 3 —which will not arrive in Spain—, the Samsung Galaxy Fold 5 or the Vivo X Fold 2 have hit the market, far surpassing their predecessors. Now it is Huawei that has presented the Huawei Mate X5 .

This is the fourth generation – the company skipped the Mate X4 – of its large-format folding smartphone, which arrives this year without breaking too much with its predecessor , the Huawei Mate It maintains the same dimensions, although it evolves in aspects such as connectivity and battery.

At the moment the price of the device in China, which is where it has been presented, is not known. It is expected to arrive in Spain, just as the previous version did, so we will have to pay attention to what the company presents in the coming months.

Huawei has launched its folding phone with 5G connectivity, great news considering that it has had problems doing so with other models. There are some aspects that are maintained compared to its predecessor , such as the design, which is practically identical. Its fingerprint sensor is located on the side.

The same happens with the photographic section, where it repeats the resolutions of 50 Mpx for the main sensor, 12 Mpx for the five-times telephoto lens and 13 Mpx for the wide angle lens. It is not known exactly what its processor is, but there is information about the RAM, which is 12 or 16 GB depending on the model. Storage varies between 512 GB and 1 TB.
