Huawei Mate X Foldable Phone Will Go on Sale in September: Report

Huawei Mate X foldable smartphone was initially set to launch in June this year but the sale was delayed to ensure the device’s design was durable.

Chinese smartphone manufacturer Huawei’s foldable phone Mate X, which is expected to launch during Huawei Developer Conference in the coming days of this month, is reportedly all set to go on sale from next month – i.e, September.

However, the company would be putting a limited quantity of Huawei Mate X devices on sale because of the production and supply chain concerns, Chinese news portal CNMO reported on Monday. Samsung also announced recently that it would release the Samsung Galaxy Fold in September in select markets.

The Huawei Mate X smartphone was initially set to launch in June this year but the sale was delayed to ensure its design was durable after the Samsung Galaxy Fold fiasco.
