A few years ago, when manufacturers started launching full-screen smartphones and switching from using plastic and metal for the glass panel to glass and ceramic, many people started worrying about the cost of repairs.
Repairing smartphones like that is quite costly. But at the present time, when we enter the era of foldable smartphones, this worry becomes even bigger. Huawei today has officially announced the repair price for Huawei Mate X and is certainly not cheap at all.
Replacing the battery will cost you $40 (around Rs. 2,900), while you have to pay $1,000 (around Rs. 71,900) to get a new display for your Huawei Mate X. With that cost, you can even buy a brand-new iPhone 11 Pro, which is already considered as an expensive smartphone. If you replace/repair the motherboard, owners of Huawei Mate X will have to spend up to $509 (around Rs. 36,600). If its cameras are broken, you will have to pay $99 (around Rs. 7,100) to replace it. Finally, the company charges $51 (around Rs. 3,700) for battery cover replacement/repair.
If you think the cost of repairing your device is too high, keep in mind that it already costs $2,400 (roughly Rs. 1,72,500) to purchase.
As you may already know, the Huawei Mate X uses a flexible folding screen with a size of 8 inches when fully opened. When you don't need a big screen, you can fold it and use its 6.6-inch display with one hand easily.
In terms of hardware configuration, the Huawei Mate X is equipped with Balong 5000 + Kirin 980 octa-core chipset (it is Huawei's first 7nm 5G chip). Upgraded versions of the device will use Kirin 990 5G chipset instead. The device also supports fast charging 55W with the ability to fill 85% of battery in just 30 minutes (the battery capacity is 4,500 mAh).
