A day after Samsung announced that it has sold around 400K-500K units of the Galaxy Fold, Huawei has revealed that it has been selling 100K units of the Mate X per month since its launch in China.
Huawei is reportedly planning to launch its second foldable device, the 2nd-gen Mate X, in the second half of 2020. Many of Huawei's suppliers have already started trial production of key components.
Huawei announced its foldable smartphone way back in February, and the handset is finally ready to be released. Unfortunately, for now, it's only going to be available in China, for $2,400.
Huawei announced its foldable smartphone, the Mate X, at Mobile World Congress, and it's changed since then. In Shenzhen this week, we went hands on with the Kirin 990-powered foldable.
It has come to light that Huawei will be unable to hit its previously advised Mate X launch month of September, with the release of the smartphone expected to slip by another two months.
Huawei has delayed the market release of its Mate X foldable phone until September instead of the initially planned launch in June to avoid the same issues affecting the Galaxy Fold.
We're starting to see the emergence of foldable smartphones in 2019, and there are many questions left to be answered. But Huawei's Mate X phone made me feel a lot more hopeful for the future.
An image of the promotional materials for the company's upcoming MWC 2019 event has revealed the design and the name of Huawei's foldable phone. The Huawei Mate X will also support 5G.
