The other day, here at IFA 2019, Samsung has re-announced its folding flagship, the Galaxy Fold. obviously Huawei, which every year is limited to presenting the processor that will equip the new Mate, has not been watching the competing company without acting.
It appears that Richard Yu, head of Huawei's mobile division, held several meetings revealing some details on the Mate X.
Among these details there is also the probable exit period of the Chinese foldable. Which should follow the arrival on the market of Galaxy Fold, going out during the month of October or at most in November.

Kirin 990 also on the Mate X
Initially sales were announced for June, then postponed to August and finally to September, before being postponed again. But now it seems that the period is almost final.
And another thing that now seems to be established is the presence of Kirin 990 SoC announced yesterday. At least in a variant of the Mate X, given that when it was presented it was announced with the Kirin 980. It is not known however if there will be other differences between the two variants besides the processor.
Other known technical specifications include:
- Display OLED QHD + 8 " (open)
- Display 6.6 ″ on the main side
- Display 6.3 ″ on the back side (that of the cameras)
- 8 GB of RAM LPDDR4X
- 512 GB of internal memory
- Network support 5G (version with Kirin 990?)
- Possible EMUI 10 (which will arrive on the Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro around the same time)
- Price of € 2299
Meanwhile, if you want to see our video hands-on with the re-designed Galaxy Fold we leave the video of the day before yesterday. You will notice that the hinge has been modified and the internal film is part of the display, which now does not seem to be one of the pre-applied ones to be removed.
