At long last, we finally have new updates about the Huawei Mate X — the company’s highly-anticipated foldable smartphone.
If you remember, the Huawei Mate X was announced way back in February. It was taunted to have all the latest and greatest specs that the Chinese brands have to offer. Plus, a unique foldable design that’s truly different from some of the competition.
However, the launch date announcement was never made for months. This is probably due to the effects that the Samsung Galaxy Fold fiasco brought to the emerging foldable phones. But now, Samsung has already rolled out its take on foldable devices in the market — and Huawei is gearing up to follow suit.
With that said, the company announced that the Huawei Mate X will be available in China starting November 15. It’s already listed in Huawei’s official online store with a whopping price tag of CNY16,999 (~Php123,400).
But unlike the new Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro, the Mate X will still come with a Kirin 980 processor. The only flagship chipset that they were making when the device was announced.
Huawei said that they have also prepared a Kirin 990 version with 5G connectivity. But that wouldn’t arrive until March of 2020.
For a quick recap, the Huawei Mate X has a large 8-inch AMOLED display. It’s divided into 6.6-inch (front) and 6.4-inch (back) screens when folded.
There’s also the triple camera setup that we saw on the P30 Pro, and a large 4,500mAh battery with 55W Huawei SuperCharge support. You can check out our Huawei Mate X hands-on review to learn more about it.
