Back in March, Huawei introduced the Mate X, a foldable smartphone that many had been talked about for long. However, even at the time, the phone was not available for purchase.
The Huawei Mate X came up for pre-registration/pre-order in China on October 23. Finally, the foldable phone got its first flash sale today, November 15.
This is a new era of foldable smartphones as Motorola just launched the razr 2019 foldable phone too. Talking about foldable phones, Samsung also has the Galaxy Fold which sold out in China in five minutes. The South Korean company also just secured a patent for a dual-screen foldable phone.
Back to the Huawei Mate X, all units of the device stocked sold out in only a matter of minutes. It’s either Huawei stocked very few devices or the demand was just too high. The good news is that there will be another flash sale for the device on November 22.
