The foldable form is the newest smartphone trend for 2019, with Chinese manufacturer Huawei unveiling its own take on the idea at the annual Mobile World Congress (MWC) technology show in Barcelona on Sunday, known as the Mate X.
He said Huawei hoped to be able to reduce the price of the Mate X over time and that it was his dream for everyone to have access to it.
There's also a thick Mate X-esque black bezel surrounding the screen to house the handset's sensors and front-facing camera, rather than the notch cutout seen on the Galaxy Fold. Of course, there are some differences between the two.
When opened in "tablet mode", the Mate X sports an 8-inch screen compared to Samsung's 7.3-inch offering, with a resolution of 2480 x 2200 and an aspect ratio of 8:7.1.
"Since colorless polyimide, a flexible film used for a foldable smartphone screen, is not as hard as a smartphone screen made of a glass panel, an outward-folding device is more exposed to scratches than in-folding ones", a market watcher said. But more importantly, the 6.6-inch display on the front that you get when folded beats the Galaxy Fold's tiny 4.6-inch display.
A massive 4500mAh battery is bolstered by Huawei's 55W SuperCharge charger, which can re-juice the battery from 0 per cent to 85 per cent in just 30 minutes.
The phone can be charged wirelessly, and allows users to power other devices by laying them on the Galaxy Fold, as well as Samsung DeX, providing a more desktop-like experience when connected to a display using a USB-C cable.
For software, Huawei doesn't appear to have worked on any special tricks.
Huawei's foldable smartphone officially measures at 11 millimeters in thickness when folded outward, meaning the display has a curvature of at least 11 millimeters to fold out.
