Huawei’s Mate X3 is reportedly thinner than the iPhone 14 Pro Max. The new folding phone from Huawei which is the latest book-style foldable from the company was just recently unveiled in china.
Huawei’s Mate X3 Is Reportedly Thinner Than The iPhone 14 Pro Max
The newest foldable phone from Huawei, the Mate X3, is an excellent and impressively thin and light book-style foldable smartphone. The device was unveiled on Thursday alongside the non-foldable flagship P60 series.
The Mate X3 sports a 6.4-inch cover screen that quickly unfolds to make room for a 7.85-inch inner screen. And despite the presence of two screens, the Mate X3 weighs an impressive 239 grams and it’s 5.3 mm thick, thus making it thinner and even lighter than the iPhone 14 Pro Max when unfolded. This also simply means that the Mate X3 is the lightest commercially available foldable phone currently in the market which is a title clinched by Huawei previously with the Mate XS 2. For reference, the Galaxy Z Fold 4 weighs 263 grams and has a width of 6.3mm when it is unfolded.
Notable Features of the Mate X3
The Mate X3 as you should know also has a free-stop hinge, the company cited, thus allowing the phone to fold in a host of positions, which lends the device to Flex-mode style features. And speaking of the camera, the Mate X3 has a circular camera bump which is housing a 50-megapixel main camera, a 13-megapixel ultrawide camera, and a 12-megapixel periscope-style telephoto camera, which as you should know is capable of 5x optical zoom.
The Mate X3 Has IPX8 Rating
And although the slick hardware of the Mate X3 is really commendable, one of the biggest upgrades to the Mate X3 is the availability of an IPX8 rating, which remains uncommon in the foldable phone market. Only Samsung’s Galaxy Z Fold 4 series sports the same rating, which simply means that the device can withstand immersion in over 1 meter (3.2 feet) of water.
The Return of Huawei to the Book-Style Foldable
The Mate X3 marks the return of Huawei to the book-style foldable. In the previous year, Huawei ran with the single-screen wraparound design of the Mate XS 2 instead of just launching a successor to 2021’s Mate X2. The return to inward-folding design, which was first introduced by Samsung, seems to imply that book-style designs are the future for Huawei foldable phones.
