Leaked Huawei Mate X Unboxing Reveals New Design Quirk

Huawei’s first folding phone, the Mate X, was unveiled at the MWC 2019 on February 25. It was originally scheduled to launch in June 2019, however, it was delayed due to durability concerns. The company wanted to run more tests on the device in light of failures reported for similar products (Samsung Galaxy Fold).

As the company is gearing up to launch the folding smartphone by the end of this month, a recent leak has revealed a new design quirk. It is an unboxing video of the said phone, and to our surprise, Huawei has incorporated some new design changes as well.

Unlike the prototype we saw earlier, the Mate X now has a release button for the screen. Once you fold the phone, there’s a button on the back of the phone to unlatch the screen. The smartphone is expected to come with a 1.8GHz octa-core Huawei HiSilicon Kirin 980 processor topped with 8 GB RAM and 512 GB of onboard storage.

As far as the displays are concerned it is expected to come with a 6.60-inch touchscreen as the primary display with 1148 x 2480 resolution, a 6.38-inch touchscreen as a second display with 892 x 2480 resolution, and an 8.00-inch touchscreen as its third display with 2200 x 2480 pixels resolution and a 4500 mAh battery.

We’ll keep you posted about the Huawei Mate X as we hear more about the foldable phone.

  • Because of the U.S. ban imposed in May. If the phone is considered the “old” one it might be able to ship with official Google support. However, if the phone will be considered “new”, hence launched after the ban, it will have the same fate as the Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro.

    Whatever the case, we should expect to hear more about it later this month when the device is expected to launch officially in China.
