As per the concept, Huawei Mate X phone will sport two separate displays. One of the screens will measure 5-inches, while the other will be 8-inches in size both of which will be supporting HDR 10. When folded, we will get to use the 5-inch display, which otherwise looks like any other smartphone. But when unfolded the screen size goes to 8-inches featuring a 4K display and will be perfect as a tablet.

On the other hand, there is also another idea developed but in the laptop mode with a 120-degree fold. If a smartphone is designed in this way, it can be literally used as a regular laptop. And with half of the fold, the Huawei foldable phone can be used as a fully functional keyboard, while the rest will be used as a display. In addition, the device’s user interface will also be changed like the desktop UI, so that it can give laptop-like experience to the users. Apart from this, the device will get a sleek design that combines both metal and glass of approximately 7.5-inch total thickness.

The ruggedized LM960 module is derived from the Cat-11 compatible LM940 and the two cards are interchangeable, says Telit, which offers developers the ability to launch new equipment (routers, gateways, etc.) built on designs already using the Telit LM940, or to create product families with different performance levels (the LM960 for the high-end, the LM940 for the mid-range).

 

Telit LM960 Price and Buy

Since Telit LM960 is not available in the market for volume and just in the range of testing. The Telit LM960 price is high and there is only few online stores who can supply the samples time to time. We 4GLTEMALL.com could supply the Telit LM960 samples but not stably. If you want to buy the Telit LM960, you must pre-order first to get it.
