Ahead of its expected unveiling at this year's Mobile World Congress, a billboard has given us our first look at the Huawei Mate X.

Images of a billboard advertising the device surfaced earlier today, confirming the name of the device and giving us a look at the folding mechanism - which looks to be significantly different from Samsung's Galaxy Fold.

The original tweet that revealed the Huawei Mate X can be seen below:

No word yet on what the software and hardware of the device will look like but with Huawei's Mobile World Congress press conference only a few days away, we probably won't have to wait long to find out.

Back in October, Huawei CEO Richard Yu confirmed to Digital Trends that Huawei were working on foldable phones. Since then, Yu has clarified the company’s intentions by telling attendees of a Huawei 5G event in Beijing that "we look forward to seeing you in Barcelona in February, where we will launch the world's first 5G smartphones with foldable screen."

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

Brother PT-P750W

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
