HUAWEI Mate X Key Features

Kirin 980 + Balong 5000

The HUAWEI Mate X is powered by their Kirin 980 mobile SoC, backed by the recently-launched Balong 5000 multi-mode 5G chipset.

The HUAWEI Kirin 980 is the world’s first 7 nm mobile SoC, and also the first to come with two NPUs, a Cat.21 modem and support for faster LPDDR4X-2133 memory.

It uses a new 2+2+4 cluster architecture, with two ARM Cortex-A76 high-performance cores running at 2.6 GHz, two additional ARM Cortex-A76 cores running at 1.92 GHz and four ARM Cortex-A55 cores running at 1.8 GHz for background or less-intensive workloads.

It also comes with a 24-core ARM Mali-G76 GPU and two NPUs, which should double both its graphics and AI performance. On top of that, it supports LTE Category 21 download speeds of up to 1.6 Gbps, as well as dual frequency GPS (L5 + L1) for 10X more accurate positioning.

The HUAWEI Balong 5000, on the other hand, supports 2G, 3G, 4G and 5G operation on a single chip. According to HUAWEI, it is able to achieve 5G download speeds of up to 6.5 Gbps.

It is also the world’s first chipset that supports both standalone (SA) and non-standalone (NSA) network architectures for 5G. That means it is ready to support whatever 5G technology that is implemented at any point in time.

The HUAWEI Mate X has two OLED panels – a 6.6-inch front display, and a 6.38-inch rear display, with a Falcon Wing Mechanical Hinge.  When unfolded, they transform into a large 8.0-inch display! The smartphone literally becomes a tablet.

Large Foldable Display

Consumers have always voted (with their wallets) for ever larger displays. The very large 8.0-inch display will allow the user to do more. Actions that used to be awkward with smaller displays will now be a piece of cake.
