Huawei first revealed glimpse on its new Mate X foldable phones six months ago, and the device is still far beyond our reach. Since then Huawei has been playing around, giving us expected dates and well, getting our hopes high.
It was first revealed ha the phone would most likely hit the markets in July. July passed on silently, and we were given the expected date of launch to come in September. However, with September passing off too. New reports reveal that the phone will most likely officially launch somewhere around the end of October, probably October 23.
Ceo Quotes on the release
However, these new dates are something we can hold onto considering the very CEO himself of the company, Yu Chengdong revealed it. He did so during the launch of the Mate 30 by announcing that Mate X will be available for shipping in a month.
But this is still merely a guess. That’s because there have been no formal announcements by the company giving a date on when the Mate X will officially release.
Sources have revealed more insights on the release of the phone, such as it will launch in China first. The company will allow reservations of the phone on the same day. While you have to wait a bit longer for the sales, probably till the first week of November.
This formidable gaps in the release have given the rival, Samsung, to come across with its foldable phone, a device that causes much hype in the markets. However, this may be a smart move from Huawei’s side. Now they can pull apart their rivals device. And produce a grander version that comes in par with the Samsung foldable phone.
This might not be a hard thing to achieve as Samsung’s device, which folds inwards is supposedly lighter. However, since after its release, the Tech Giants device is facing many design failures.
