Huawei and Samsung both announced foldable phones back in February but we are yet to see either of the phones in the market. While Huawei has been struggling with the US government, Samsung has been struggling to fix the design of its foldable phone.
The good news though is that Huawei seems to be ready to launch their foldable phone. The company was originally rumoured to launch it last month but the launch is finally happening. According to a listing on China’s TENAA certification board, Huawei is ready to launch the Mate X with the following specs:
- Mate X will have an 8-inches OLED panel with a resolution of 2,480 x 2,200 pixels.
- The battery on Huawei Mate X is rated at 4,400mAh battery. It’s worth noting that the device shown at MWC 2019 had a 4,500mAh battery.
- The device will weigh 287g.
- The device will have three storage options: 6GB + 128GB, 8GB + 256GB, and 12GB + 512GB. The Huawei Mate X will support microSD.
- Finally, the listing confirms that there will be a 5G variant of the Mate X, as Huawei had discussed during MWC 2019 back in February.
Huawei previously said that the Mate X series will start from €2,299 which should be the price of 6GB + 128GB model. There’s no word on when the device will be launched but the rumours suggest it should happen by the end of the month or in early August.
