Rumour: Huawei Mate X Could Launch During Huawei 5G Conference In China On October 23

The next foldable smartphone could be launching soon

After the launch of the Samsung Galaxy Fold, the next foldable smartphone to look out for is the Huawei Mate X. It seems that Huawei had sent out invites for its 5G Conference in China, happening on October 23. Huawei is expected to release some 5G products during this conference, and speculation indicates this will include the Huawei Mate X.

The Huawei Mate X was revealed in February but the initial launch was delayed to fix the device further. So far the changes had been noted when the Huawei Mate X surfaced in an unboxing video uploaded to Youtube with a packing similar to what you would expect from the Chinese firms. However, the device looks somewhat different from the Mate X which was unveiled earlier this year, as it now includes a button to unlock the folding display.

Besides the unboxing some reports point out that the Mate X will now come with better internals. It will now use the Kirin 990 against the Kirin 980 the original version uses. In addition, it includes a TOF sensor in the new version. Huawei Mate X uses a flexible folding screen which expands up to 8-inches and also uses a Balong 5000 5G modem for 5G connectivity.In terms of power, it uses a 4500 mAh battery which supports 55W super fast charge.

Even if the rumours are true, the next question will be if it will also lack Google apps, as per the fate of their Huawei Mate 30 series.
