Repairing phone screens isn't cheap, especially as displays get bigger and more beautiful. It costs $149 to replace a broken iPhone 8 display, but $329 to fix a cracked iPhone 11 Pro Max. It makes sense, the 11 Pro Max display is OLED and nearly 40% bigger. So what does that mean for foldable phones , the displays for which are larger and more complicated to engineer?

Huawei initially showed off the Mate X at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona back in February where the foldable phone became an instant challenger Samsung's Galaxy Fold. Rather than opening like a book to reveal a larger screen on the inside, as the Fold does, the Mate X has a wraparound outside display that's accessible even when the phone is closed.

Those eager to get their hands on a Mate X, despite Huawei's woes with the US government that restrict it from using new versions of Android, patience may pay off in the long run.

But a subsequent Mate Xs model, coming in 2020, will feature specs more akin to the recently released Mate 30.
