Last Wednesday Samsung in the spotlight not for how long. In recent years, slowly become a world market leader, could be thanks to the Galaxy Fold again like in the old days as a leader in innovation and Fotschritts-Turbo to celebrate.
it May be that the Galaxy Fold device as an expensive first-generation only for fans of technology, but after all, a manufacturer ventures out of cover and brings folding, respectively. bendable screens on the market, so the basic tenor of the Event.
a Little messy on the presentation was that the device was only shown on the stage. In the Hand, none of the invited journalists, or analysts ' take, or even it could try out. A clear proof that the Software is not ready yet.
Why presented Samsung the device, nevertheless, already, it became clear today in Barcelona. the Huawei , Samsung's largest competitor, has presented at a presentation in the run-up to the world's largest mobile Phone trade show, we attended an invitation-only, with the Mate X also a folding mobile phone. The Samsung was going to come, obviously, before.
First of all, Samsung was obvious. But who has the better Falthandy?
it is, both companies, in addition to 5G selected Tempo and the bendable screen, very different Design approaches. Samsung Galaxy Fold has outside a very small screen, inside a large foldable and around the device, around six cameras. Therefore, the Galaxy Fold also reminds some observers of the hinged Communicator phones of the past.
Huawei has chosen a much simpler and more elegant approach. The Mate X has a nearly square, with 8-inch screen that can fold in half. So, the Mini-Tablet at first glance (in the Hand you could take the Mate of X is also non-self) a pretty normal, 11mm thick, 6-inch Smartphone with edge-to-edge screen.
The Cunning of the Huawei's Design is that it needs only a camera. Thanks to the foldable screen, you can use the same camera for Selfies and normal photos.
seen in this way, Huawei is relying on the Strengths of a foldable screen while Samsung its disadvantages with the extra technology laminated. Which Design is now smarter, and mainly everyday, you can tell. Especially since the Software will decide if the two devices a success or a Flop.
rush Nevertheless, it is exciting to see how different the approaches of the two companies. After years with almost identical cell phone Designs from all manufacturers, it is quite refreshing to see some courage on new Designs.

The different approaches show, however, that the industry is still far from a dominant Design. Now is experimenting time, well, until we know what Design is really works.
