Huawei has been one of the pioneers to launch a folding screen smartphone. If you remember, both companies – Samsung and Huawei – had serious problems related to the screen and the folding part of the screen. As a result, the launch dates of their models were pushed back a few times. Anyway, currently, there are over 5 smartphone makers that are offering their own foldable smartphones. We mean the competition is fiercer than at the launch of the first models. That’s why, before releasing a new model, the manufacturer has to work on them in more detail. We guess this is the main reason why the next-gen Huawei Mate X3 has not been on the market until today.
Recently, Digitimes reported that Huawei had finalized the shipping date of its new flagship Mate X3 folding screen mobile phone. According to the supply chain news, the total shipments will increase by more than 80% compared with the Mate X2.
In addition, a Chinese leaker said that the Huawei Mate 50 series will arrive at the end of August, and the Mate X3 will arrive at the end of December this year or January next year. Of course, the Mate 50 series is already commonplace. So it’s senseless to go into details.
As for the Huawei Mate X3, there have been multiple rumors concerning its key features. For instance, we heard that the phone will run HarmonyOS, sport a HiSilicon Kirin 9000 4G chip, have a built-in 4500mAh battery, and support 66W wired fast charging.
The latest folding screen smartphone of Huawei is the Mate Xs 2. The latter boasts of a number of outstanding features. But you should also know that it costs 9,999 yuan (over $1500). Taking into consideration the current situation in the world, the supply chain problems, etc., there is every reason to think the new model will cost much more.
