Unboxing the Huawei Mate X3 foldable phone with a full tour of the camera tech, gaming abilities, split-screen features and beyond. As far as hardware goes, the Huawei Mate X3 certainly looks like a solid Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 rival. Of course, with EMUI on board rather than Android, there’s the usual software caveats.
I’m absolutely in love with the design here, which is skinny and light compared with many foldables. The Huawei Mate X3 weighs less than the iPhone 14 Pro Max, with a 6.4-inch outer screen and near 8-inch internal display. Both panels are OLED, with LTPO tech for the external screen. You’ve also got a stereo speaker setup.
Huawei has shoved several cameras on the Mate X3, with a 50MP Ultravision shooter headlining the back lot. This can’t match the P60 Pro for evening shots or zoom snaps, but the Huawei Mate X3 is still very capable in better lighting.
Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 powers the Huawei Mate X3, so you can run apps side-by-side with a smooth experience or get gaming. If you can find some games that you actually enjoy. Battery life also gets a thumbs up, with enough grunt to last you all day, even with lots of screen on time.
