Foldable Huawei Mate X goes on sale in China, quickly sells out

Officially launched on October 23 in China, the Huawei Mate X, the company’s first foldable smartphone, went on sale today, as originally planned.

Samsung managed to beat the Mate X with its own Galaxy Fold, which launched in the country a week earlier, on November 8, and sold out pretty fast.

The Mate X, however, is a 5G-enabled phone, opposed to Samsung’s foldable, featuring the Kirin 980 processor, paired with the Balong 5000 modem for 5G, and a 4,500mAh battery than can be charged to 85 percent in half an hour, thanks to 55W fast charging.

It has an 8-inch screen when unfolded, 6.6-inches on the front when folded, with the 6.38-inch part of the panel being folded back. The phone goes for 16,999 yuan (a little over $2,400, depending on the exchange rate), and, just like the Mate 30-series, it launches without official Google support.

According to several reports, just like in the case of the Samsung Galaxy Fold, the Huawei Mate X sold out within minutes. A second round of sales is scheduled for next week, November 22.
