huawei mate x fold - Huawei Mate X 3 - Huawei Mate X Foldable Smartphone goes on sale in ChinaBack in October,  Huawei launched its foldable Mate X smartphone and the device is now available to buy in China.

The Mate X, which unfolds to 5.8 inches wide, went on sale Friday on Huawei´s online store in China priced at 16,999 yuan (£1,900 / $2,422). Those who did not manage to buy a Mate X on Friday will get another chance on 22 November when a second batch will go on sale.

Huawei Mate X features a single 8-inch (2,480 x 2,200) OLED panel, which can be folded to give you a 6.6-inch main screen and a 6.36-inch secondary screen. The second screen is smaller as it houses a strip on the side to house the internals including the processor, cameras, and antennas.

Huawei Mate X features an attractive outward-opening design, compared to Galaxy Fold, whose screen folds in and offers a secondary screen on the outside. It is using the same polyimide protective film as the Galaxy Fold though.

Huawei has added a new physical button to unlock the folding display and make it easier to easily flip open the device in tablet mode. Huawei Mate X is powered by the Kirin 980 chipset with 5G support, thanks to the Balong 5000 5G modem onboard.

It was thought that the redesigned Huawei Mate X might come with an upgraded Kirin 990 5G chipset but Huawei revealed that this will arrive in 2020, called the Mate Xs.

Huawei Mate X has been coupled with 8GB of RAM, 512GB of storage, 4500mAh of battery, and a new TOF sensor, alongside a triple camera setup.

The triple rear camera setup includes a 40MP RYYB primary sensor, coupled with an 8MP telephoto sensor and a 16MP ultra-wide-angle lens. It supports up to 204800 ISO levels, OIS+AIS, and other camera features we find on Huawei’s current flagship phones.
