In a couple of days, Huawei will hold a new product launch conference in its mainland and launch the much-anticipated Huawei Mate X folding screen smartphone. We knew almost everything about this handset. And the only thing remaining unknown was the price. Today, sources familiar with the matter said there will be two versions. The Kirin 980 version will be available at 9,999 yuan ($1414), while the Kirin 990 5G version will come at 13,999 yuan ($1979).
The source says everything can change before the launch. But at the moment, we have what we have. And if this news is true, the Chinese version of the Huawei Mate X will be much cheaper than the European version. If you remember, at the original launch event, the company announced the phone will cost 2,299 euros ($2565) in Europe. By the way, at the same event, the company also said China’s price won’t be higher than that in Europe.
As for the selling points, the Huawei Mate X sports a flexible folding screen design. It uses an eagle-wing folding feature that can be expanded up to 8 inches. When folded, it will turn into a 6.6-inch screen. Thus, in this mode, you can control the phone with a single hand. The thickness of the body is only 5.4mm.
In terms of other features, the Huawei Mate X is equipped with Huawei’s first 7nm 5G multimode chip Barong 5000 + Kirin 980. There is a 4500mAh battery supporting 55W super-fast charge. This allows the phone to charge 85% in 30 minutes. At last, this phone supports 5G.
