TENAA certification reveals Huawei Mate X final specs, launch date imminent
Will we see any foldable smartphones launched before the end of 2019? Samsung was supposed to be the first to launch a foldable handheld this May, but we all know how that turned out. Huawei tried to seize the opportunity and be the first to market a foldable device with the Mate X, yet the company got hit with bans and was forced to reschedule the launch. Huawei initially said that the Mate X could be relaunched in September; however, a recent TENAA certification for what looks like the Mate X could mean that the foldable is ready for launch and potentially hit the Chinese markets this August.
The fresh TENAA certificate was submitted for model number TAH-AN00, which right out of the gate stands out as a 5G device. If you were wondering about the size of the unfolded AMOLED screen, the TENAA specs now confirm that it has an 8-inch diagonal with 2,480 x 2,200 resolution. Size-wise, the Mate X measures 6.35 x 5.75 x 0.43 inches and weighs 0.63 lbs. TENAA does not mention the SoC, but we already know this is supposed to be a Snapdragon 855. Surprisingly enough, TENAA mentions that there would be a 6 GB RAM + 128 GB storage version alongside 8 GB + 256 Gb and 12 GB + 512 GB models.
Other specs include a 4,400 mAh (minimum) battery with 55 W Super Charge, 8 MP selfie cam plus a rear cam integrating a 40 MP + 16 MP + 8 MP setup plus an additional ToF sensor, and an in-display fingerprint reader.
