The Huawei Mate X is a foldable Android-based Smartphone produced by Huawei. It was unveiled at MWC 2019 on February 25, 2019.[2] It was originally scheduled to launch in June 2019. The launch was pushed back to allow for extensive testing in light of the failures reported by users of a similar product, Galaxy Fold from Samsung.[3][4] The Mate X will launch in November 2019.[5][6][7]



The Mate X has an 8-inch OLED display that can fold outwards resulting in a 6.6-inch main display and a 6.38-inch rear display.[8] Its power button contains a fingerprint reader. The screen is covered by plastic and is secured by a push-button latch when closed. It uses the Kirin 980 but due to delays maybe with the kirin 990 expected to first come in the huawei mate 30 series. It also has 8 GB of RAM with 512 GB of storage. The latter is expandable up to 256 GB via Huawei's proprietary Nano Memory. The device contains two batteries split between the two halves, totaling a 4500 mAh capacity, and can quick charge at 55W (Which is the world's fastest phone charger.). The Mate X has a bar situated on the right side of the device with four cameras and an LED flash on the back, the power button/fingerprint sensor on the left side and a USB-C port on the bottom. The cameras include a 40 MP main lens, a 16 MP wide-angle lens, an 8 MP telephoto lens and a time-of-flight sensor. The bar is roughly twice as thick as the rest of the device, giving the user a grip to hold it. Unlike the Galaxy Fold, it comes standard with 5G enabled by Huawei's own Balong 5000 modem.[9][10][11]


The Mate X runs on Android 9.0 "Pie" with Huawei's EMUI 9.1 skin or due to its expected launch in November, EMUI 10 and Android Q.EMUI has been known to be one of the most over the top android skins of all time and looks nothing like stock android and more like iOS.
