Huawei has already begun production of the folding Mate X and promises that it will be more reliable than Galaxy Fold

Against the background of the scandal with flexible smartphones Samsung Galaxy Fold, their main competitor Huawei Mate X faded into the background.

The company decided to remind about itself and announced the start of production of its flexible gadget.

When and how much

For now this is only a trial release. These smartphones are only for China, where sales start in June.

After that, Huawei Mate X will get to the othercountries, but production is unlikely to be large-scale: given the limited amount of flexible BOE screens, the company is unlikely to release more than 300,000 smartphones. Samsung Galaxy Fold has the advantage: the manufacturer is ready to release 700 thousand devices, and the power, if necessary, allows 300 thousand more to finish.

More reliable than Galaxy Fold

While the displays in the test samples Galaxy Foldcontinue to fail, Huawei strengthens Mate X checks. To avoid the same problems, production testing standards have been raised. Therefore, the company is confident that Huawei Mate X will not disappoint users with non-working screens or "peeled off" protective coating.


At the same time, the cost of Huawei Mate X has become known. Price tags in different countries will be different: for China it is about 2,090 dollars, for other countries it is more expensive - 2,540 dollars.
