Huawei Mate X: Price, Release Date and More

The folding Huawei smartphone is here.

Chinese mobile giant Huawei has unveiled the Huawei Mate X folding phone. The design is at first glance smarter than Samsung's Galaxy Fold. When folded the Mate X is a 6.6-inch screen smartphone and unfolded the screen-size is 8-inch. Unlike the Galaxy Fold, the Mate X has the screen on the outside, resulting in a thinner design (11mm). The Galaxy Fold is 17mm thick when folded.

Huawei packs its own 5G chipset and CPU in the Mate X, both are based on 7nm technology. The Mate X is powered by the Kirin 980 CPU and the 5G model is called Balong 5000. Huawei is already there where Apple is headed with in-house smartphone chipsets.

The Huawei foldable smartphone will retail for 2,299 Euro ($2,610) in an 8GB RAM and 512GB Storage configuration. The release date of the Huawei Mate X is "from the middle of 2019." Huawei keeps the release date still very vague.

Like the Galaxy Fold, the Mate X is for early adopters only. While the Fold will be available in the United States, the Mate X is likely not officially go on sale in the US because of troubles the company is in with the US government. To purchase the Mate X unlocked with no warranty as you can do with other Huawei products on Amazon is not really a good idea at this high price.
