Huawei Mate X foldable phone certified by 3C in China

“Huawei Mate X foldable phone comes with Kirin 980 SoC, 6.6-inch AMOLED display on the front and a 4,500mAh battery”

Huawei Mate X was introduced at the MWC 2019 event earlier this year. It’s the company’s first commercial foldable phone but is yet to hit the stores. Now, while we wait for the launch, the handset has received China’s 3C certification, suggesting the 5G-compatible Mate X launch might be around the block. The listing reveals the phone has a model number TAH-AN00 and is likely to include a new power adapter with a maximum output of 65W (model HW-200200CP1). This means it is rated higher than the Mate X’s 55W Super Charge capacity.

To recall, He Gang, who leads Huawei’s smartphone division, shared the 5G test results of the Mate X foldable phone earlier this month. In the speed test, the handset recorded download speeds of 1 Gbps and upload speeds of 100 Mbps. These 5G tests were reportedly carried out through China Unicom’s network at the Shanghai Research Institute office. Huawei’s 5G roadmap revealed the Mate X could launch around July, so it’s a matter of a few weeks before we know more details.

To recall, the Huawei Mate X packs a 6.6-inch AMOLED display on the front, a 6.38-inch screen on the back that expands to an 8-inch screen when unfolded. It is powered by the HiSilicon Kirin 980 SoC with Mali-G76MP10 GPU paired with 8GB of RAM and 512GB of onboard storage. It boots Android 9.0 Pie with EMUI 9.1.1 and packs a 4,500mAh battery with Super Charge support. In terms of optics, the Mate X rocks triple rear cameras with 40MP + 16MP + 8MP lens. The Mate X also comes with the Balong 5000 5G chipset, which also supports 2G, 3G, and 4G.
