IFA 2019 saw Huawei launching the Kirin 990 5G chipset for its future flagship smartphones and in the very same event, Huawei’s Chairman Richard Yu confirmed that the company is planning to launch the Mate X in October.

Now, Huawei terminal customer service officer Guan Wei also confirmed the October release date for their first foldable smartphone, Mate X. However, Wei didn’t reveal the exact release date but hinted that Huawei is going to announce the official release date on the official website, forum site and official Weibo account.

Note, the Mate X will go on for sale in China in October and then later in November, the company is planning to go global with the foldable smartphone.

Huawei was supposed to launch the Mate X foldable smartphone back in June, but the Chinese tech giant later pushed the release date.

Interestingly enough, Huawei never mentioned the reason behind the delay in the launch, unlike Samsung. The US ban might have played its part in forcing Huawei to push the launch date. Rumor also has it that Huawei’s smartphone was not ready for the prime time and hence the company was forced to push the launch date further.
