After the launch of the Samsung Galaxy Fold, all eyes are on Huawei. The company’s foldable device, dubbed Mate X, is likely to launch sometime in October. A report claims that the Huawei Mate X launch will take place in China sometime towards the end of this month.

The Mate X launch and sale were earlier expected to kick off in August. But since then it has seen delays. As per reports, Huawei may launch two versions of the Mate X. One variant could come with a Kirin 980 chipset under the hood. The other variant is likely to boast the newer Kirin 990 chipset with built-in 5G support.
