Earlier this year, Chinese phone maker Huawei
unveiled its foldable 5G smartphone called the
Mate X. The tech giant has now confirmed that the
device will be launched in India later this year. The
device which will be run on Android operating
system, will not be available in the US due to the
ban.


Vincent Pang, President of HUAWEI’s Western
European Region revealed that the slow rollout of
5G in markets like China was one of the reasons
for the delay. He said the Mate X foldable 5G will
be launching in September-at the latest or even
earlier.

Specification details show that the Mate X will
feature a 6.6-inch OLED screen on the front and
6.38-inch screen on the back that expands to an 8-
inch screen when unfolded. It also features a
Falcon Wing design with a stretchable hinge for a
smooth and flat finish on both sides of the device.
The screen doesn’t overstretch while folding or
bulge in unfolding. It is just 5.4mm at its thinnest
point.


It is powered by Kirin 980 7nm SoC with Dual NPU
and Balong 5000 5G modem, runs Android 9.0
(Pie) with EMUI 9.1.1 on top, sports a 4500 mAh
battery, has a side-mounted fingerprint scanner
embedded into the power button. The phone packs
a 40MP main camera, a 16MP ultra-wide-angle
camera, and an 8MP telephoto camera. It is also
likely to come with a new adapter that can output
at a maximum of 65W with an HW-200200CP1
charger.
