The manufacturer‘s first foldable smartphone was launched in China in November 2019. And we expected a lot, especially in terms of durability – compared to the solution chosen by Samsung on its Galaxy Fold. However, according to several videos and user feedback, the foldable smartphone screen is just as fragile as its competitor.

While in other cases, only part of the screen stops working. In others, a thick black line appears in the middle of the slab.

Finally, a video shows a seemingly functional screen, but the touch part of which has failed. The Mate X sold rather well in China where it quickly found itself out of stock.
