Huawei was in the process of launching their foldable unit – the Mate X – just after Samsung introduced theirs. When the South Korean OEM took it back for some changes, though, Huawei also cooled off. It seems that they have now gotten everything right with their unit too, and it will be seeing the markets this October.
The CEO of Huawei, Richard Yu, has stated that the phone will go live for sales this month, so we don’t have to wait for more official confirmation. We don’t know when the launch date will be, but it seems Huawei is not waiting on the US to complete the trade war saga before they go up with their top-class device.
For now, it is believed that the phone will retail for around $2,250 when it does launch. What we will be looking forward to, though, is the choice of chipset under its hood. Since Huawei introduced the device when they still had the Kirin 980 chipset in production, it remains to see if they will have put in the new Kirin 990 chipset instead.
