Huawei Sold More Than 100,000 Huawei Mate X In The First Month Of Going On Sales

Even though it seems quite impressive that Huawei managed to sell over 100,000 units of the expensive Huawei Mate X, it is still not comparable to its rival Galaxy Fold.

Huawei said it sold more than 100,000 units of its foldable Huawei Mate X one month after it went on sale in China in late November. The Huawei Mate X price is CNY 16,999 (around Rs. 1,74,400). For now, the handset hasn’t made its way to India yet, so the Huawei Mate X price in India is still unknown.
The Huawei Mate X sales compared to rival Samsung Galaxy Fold still seem to be quite low, although it's not entirely clear exactly how many units of Galaxy Fold Samsung has managed to sell. However, before that at CES 2020, Samsung CEO said that about 400,000 - 500,000 Galaxy Folds have been sold.
It can be said that Huawei and Samsung are the two main competitors in the foldable smartphone market, which is still quite new. Although Samsung's Galaxy Fold had a lot of difficulties in launching, it had more successful sales than its rivals.
However, Huawei has only sold Mate X in China, and currently has no plan to launch it to other markets yet. Maybe Mate X will be launched in Europe in Q1 this year. Meanwhile, we will have a more objective view of the confrontation between Mate X and Galaxy Fold.
At this year's CES 2020 event, it's possible to see that the foldable smartphones and foldable laptops have been becoming a new trend that manufacturers want to pursue. Therefore, in the near future, Samsung and Huawei will surely have more formidable competitors. One of the notable ones is the Motorola Razr with a clamshell design. However, the phone still shows some disadvantages over its Samsung and Huawei counterparts.
Samsung is also planning to release its own clamshell smartphone, which is tipped to be called Samsung Galaxy Flip Z and it will be announced at Samsung’s Unpacked Event on 11 February alongside the Galaxy S20 series.
