Huawei’s foldable phone, The Mate X, is expected to launch during Huawei Developer Conference scheduled less than a week from now, and is reportedly set to go on sale from next month – i.e, September.
However, the company would be putting a limited quantity of Huawei Mate X devices on sale because of the production and supply chain concerns. Samsung also announced recently that it would release the Samsung Galaxy Fold in September, but only for a few regions.
The Huawei Mate X smartphone was initially set to launch in June earlier this year but the sale was delayed to ensure its design was durable after the Samsung Galaxy Fold fiasco.
Huawei Mate X runs Android 9 Pie on top of EMUI 9.1.1 and features two FullView Display panels in 6.6-inch and 6.38-inch sizes that jointly bring an 8-inch OLED FullView Display panel when unfolded without any display notch. The device, when folded, offers a 6.6-inch display experience at the front with a pixel count of 1148×2480 pixels and 19.5:9 aspect ratio.
The Huawei Mate X also features a HiSilicon Kirin 980 SoC, coupled with 8GB RAM. With regards to your photography needs, the Huawei Mate X sports a two-in-one front and rear camera setup that is powered by Leica optics. The camera setup includes three sensors, including a 40-megapixel sensor (wide-angle lens), 16-megapixel (ultra-wide-angle lens), and an 8-megapixel sensor (telephoto).
The Huawei Mate X has 512GB of onboard storage that is expandable via microSD card (up to 256GB).
