We all believed that with the passing of Huawei Mate X, Huawei's first folding smartphone, at TENAA (China's mobile regulator) the smartphone would finally hit the street. However, it seems that this will not happen.
According to the latest information, the phone has been postponed again to be released with new specifications. Since the Huawei Mate 30 will bring a new processor, Huawei will take the opportunity to implement it in the folding smartphone.
Huawei Mate X was introduced in February
It was at Mobile World Congress in February that Huawei unveiled the Huawei Mate X. We were all thrilled with the company's first folding smartphone, but there were no release dates.
Samsung, which also unveiled a folding smartphone, has also had problems launching its folding device and it seems that these problems were general.
Huawei has been delaying the market launch date of its most irreverent smartphone and today we have the information that will change some of its specifications.
Cameras and processor will be different
It seems that the first folding smartphone will have cameras identical to the Huawei P30 Pro. At launch we had cameras identical to the Mate 20 Pro.
The information also reveals that we will have the processor Kirin 960. A processor that has not been officially unveiled and will arrive in conjunction with Huawei Mate 30 Pro now in September.
When will the Huawei Mate X hit the market?
Unfortunately it is still a question we cannot answer. Whenever we seem to have a concrete idea, the smartphone is postponed again.
So, playing for what has happened so far, I believe it will be just a mobile phone that will be ready for Christmas. Still, I wonder how far it will reach UK. After all I do not believe that the typical UK’s wants to shell out more than 2000 € in a mobile phone. However irreverent it may be.
