Mate X is a phone with a Kirin 980 processor and 5G Balong 5000 modem. The phone has a massive 4,500 mAh battery and can be charged at 85% in an half hour through 55W charging.
When opened the screen has an 8-inch diagonal size, closed a 6.6-inch front screen and an 6.38-inch rear screen.
Unlike the Galaxy Fold that opens like a book, the Mate X‘s screen folds out. As a result it’s a more conventional phone than the Galaxy Fold but the plastic-coated screen will question its longevity.
The phone will go on sale from November 15 for $2,400 for the 8GB RAM and 512GB of memory. Currently the phone will be sold only in China while a global launch is being reviewed.
Huawei said it has sold 200 million smartphones since the beginning of the year to date, reaching the target 64 days before it did last year.
