The long awaited Huawei foldable phone, Mate X whose release date had been shifted for unspecified reason has been launch in China and is already on sale in the People’s Republic. Samsung’s Galaxy Fold is the first major foldable to grace the market followed by Huawei’s Mate X.
A differing feature of Huawei’s Mate X from other foldables is its folding which is on the “outside”. Taking Motorola Razr or Galaxy Fold as an example, the foldables have their folding screen on the “inside”.
The specifications for the new foldable include an 8-inch OLED display which folds externally to give a 6.6-inch main display and a 6.38-inch back display, a 4500mAh battery capacity which is split between the two halves of the phone, a 55W quick charge and is also equipped with 5G which is enabled by Huawei’s Balong 5000 modem.
After the specs comes the price. Huawei has kept the price of the phone at a whooping $2,400. The phone is available for purchase on Vmall, Huawei’s online store in China.
