Huawei Will Launch The Mate X Next Month for £2400

Huawei has finally broken their long silence and the most hyped handset ever the Mate X will officially be on sale sometime next month. Many people became concerned after multiple delays from the company, some even feared that the project could be cancelled but now those fears have been laid to rest as you can pick yours up sometime next month.

The Mate X is a folding phone that has been designed to challenge Samsung for the top spot of folding handsets; very few companies have released folding smartphones which means the folding handset market has very little competition in 2019.


The Mate X is stepping into the new era of technology with the capability of 5G which has been steadily increasing in popularity. This handset has Huawei’s own 980 processor and Barong 5000 modem, so you can expect this device to perform with quick response times and reduced loading/boot times. The battery is a dual-cell 4500mAh that can be charged from 0% to 90% in about half an hour thanks to the incredibly fast 55W charging.

The screen on the Mate X is a huge 8 inches when it’s in the unfolded position and a standard 6.6 inch screen when the device is in the folded position. The Mate X doesn’t open like the Galaxy Fold does, instead of opening like a book the Mate X has the screen wrap around the outside of the phone which some people will definitely prefer. The Mate X has a better appearance than the Galaxy Fold when it’s folded because it looks like a regular handset, whereas the Galaxy Fold has an odd square that looks quite ugly until the screen is opened.

Huawei’s Mate X is not a cheap handset by any means, so if you want to get your hands on this brand new device then you will be able to pick up the 8GB of RAM model along with 512GB of storage in November for around $2,400. Huawei gave a statement on the global release date “Our strategy is based on carriers’ 5G roll out in different regions. So far, Huawei has made the Huawei Mate X available in the China market on November 15. A global launch plan is under review.”

Huawei is doing extremely well at the moment as they announced that they have sold over 200 million handsets already this year and it’s expected to be around 250-300 million by the end of 2019. The Mate X has every right to be successful but it could suffer from a malfunction on launch like the Galaxy Fold, we have no idea how successful the launch will be but after the Samsung incident it’s highly likely that Huawei took every precaution in order for the Mate X to have a smooth launch.

That’s all the information we have on the Mate X for now, let us know your thoughts down below and if you plan on picking up one of these 5G folding handsets.
