Huawei finally releases its foldable Mate X 5G in China for a price of $2,400 (around Rs. 1,72,900). Despite the hefty price tag, the device was quickly sold out in under one minute. However, the brand hasn’t disclosed the exact quantity of the devices sold in the first batch, which might raise a doubt that Huawei could offer a very limited number of units up for sale.
The handset hit the shelf after nearly 9 months delay since its first launch in February this year. The reasons for the delay are still under wraps until now. Since this is the sale for the Chinese market, the lack of Google Play apps is not a big issue at all. It is the case for all Android smartphones launched in the country. Let’s wait and see when the brand releases the device in international markets.
