Huawei Offers China Foldable Phone
Huawei has started taking orders in China for its eagerly awaited foldable smartphone, as it ramps up marketing at home to make up for weak overseas sales amid US trade sanctions.
The launch of the 5G Mate X smartphone has been delayed twice this year, as Huawei was forced to deal with tech supply disruptions caused by the US trade blacklist imposed on the company in May.
The new smartphone, a competitor to Samsung’s Galaxy Fold which went on sale last month, will be launched on November 15 in China, starting from 16,999 yuan or US$2403.
Huawei said a global launch of the 5G Mate X remains under review.
