Huawei’s Mate X foldable went on sale for the first time in China yesterday. And it was sold out in less than a minute.
The patent, registered by HUAWEI TECHNOLOGIES CO. LTD and published in the Hague Bulletin no. 46/2019 reveals a vertical folding design patent by Huawei with at least three cameras at the back. The phone will have a single display on the inside that folds with the help of a hinge.
However, the folding position is not exactly at the center which leaves a small part of the display exposed even when it’s completely folded. This is actually a very interesting take on the flip foldable design as it eliminates the need for a secondary display on the outside.
