The first wave of Huawei Mate X switch phones finally went on sale in China – and the original series (with an uncertain amount) reportedly went on sale in a matter of minutes, according to BBC.
The folding phone was introduced at MWC 2019 back in February and was originally scheduled for launch in the summer, and then publicly delayed until September. TechRadar exclusively learn in August that he has no opportunity to make that deadline, and is much more likely to become available in November (and at least before the end of 2019).
This will happen after officially Huawei started overlap in China again in October and claims to go on sale in November – available at 16999 yuan (1,900 pounds, about $ 2,495 / $ 3,559).
The second wave of devices (again an uncertain number) will go on sale in China on November 22. But no plan has yet been announced to bring the device to other regions.
Future for Huawei can fold?
Huawei has postponed the Huawei Mate X months after the Samsung Galaxy Fold dropped its launch in April due to durability issues, though the former company gave no reason to bring the Mate X back – so it's not known whether they encountered any similar security issues or only wanted to avoid sharing Samsung's fate, as public confidence in the packaging was shaken.
Instead, the initial delay in June followed the United States. " Huawei's ban. Because it has not been abolished, only temporarily processed in August due to expire today, there is no plan for Matthew X to come to the United States.
Huawei claims that the Mate X will come to other countries in China at some point, according to the BBC. In any case, the company reportedly already discovered successor, the Huawei Mate Xs, which will pack the latest Kirin 990 chip (it's unclear when it will start operating).
