Upgraded Huawei Mate X will be announced during MWC 2020

During an interview with French Publication Frandroid, Huawei’s CEO for Consumer Business Group Richard Yu had confirmed that the company will announce an upgraded Huawei Mate X during the upcoming MWC 2020.

According to the Huawei executive, the upgraded version will feature a better hinge, more resilience display and the latest Kirin 990 SoC. Although Huawei had previously revealed that the company is currently prepping a Kirin 990 version of the device dubbed as the Mate Xs, but there are no official confirmation if the upgraded Mate X is in fact the upcoming Mate Xs.

Since the Huawei Mate X went on sale in China last month, the device have been selling like hot cakes. The device was sold out within in matter of seconds during the first few round of sales.

Despite it’s hefty price tag of 16,999 yuan (US$2,403), it remains one of the most highly sought-after smartphone in the Chinese market. The Huawei Mate X is also comparatively more expensive than the Samsung Galaxy Fold which is currently retailing at 15,999 Yuan (US$2,293).

Sad to say, it’s international availability remains uncertain even though it had seen a successful launch in the Chinese market. Previously, a Huawei’s spokesman had told CNBC that a global launch plan is still currently under review.

One of the main reasons for it’s delayed global launch is said to be due to the omission of pre-installed Google Play apps and services on the device. As a result of that, it might be unlikely for consumers to fork out such an astronomical sum of money for the device.
