That means that when Mate X folded, has a 6.6-inch screen on the front and 6.38-inch screen on the back - and when it is folded, eight-inch diagonal screen. Those who did not manage to purchase the smartphone will be able to buy when a second batch goes on sale on November 22.

Furthermore, it seems the only flexible display cover designed for the 5G Mate X is a soft protective leather handbag that appears to ship with the phone. The phone is foldable, meaning there are different ways to use it. Reports have said in the past that companies working on these phones are already planning to have more affordable variants in the near future.

Even in China the Mate X has only been on sale in its online store.

First unveiled in April, the device has seen many delays and pullbacks following significant display problems from early reviewers.

In a recent report from Reuters, Washington alleges Huawei Mate X can jeopardized the national security of U.S. government as this phone could be used by Beijing to spy once it is inside the USA market.

In early October, Wired had an exclusive in-depth look at the PlayStation 5, which included an overview of its controller. Additionally, it will also feature haptic feedback that's more capable than the rumble tech that most gamers are used to.

The only thing that was holding the Mate X was its hefty price tag, which is $400 more than the Galaxy Fold.

Chinese technology giant Huawei has launched its Mate X foldable smartphone in China and was reportedly sold out "within minutes". The device when folded turns to a dual screen device with one side being a 6.6-Inches display with 19.5:9 aspect ration while the other turns to a 6.39-Inches with 25:9 display.

The Mate X is expected according to The Research Director of Counterpoint Research, Yan Zhangmeng to sell more than 100 thousands units. There's still no word on when it might reach other countries, Engadget reported. This makes it the second Huawei device to skip on Google apps such as Gmail and Maps. Despite the controversy over the quality of the Mate X, smartphone experts speculate that "patriotic consumption" in China among Chinese people may have helped boost sales of the Mate X in protest of USA sanctions on Huawei. It was rumored weeks ago that the Mate X would probably follow.

Controversy is continuing over the quality of the Mate X as Huawei advised its customers not to unfold the Mate X at temperatures below minus 5 degrees Celsius. No other release crosses the $2,000 price. As you may recall, it was supposed to be originally launched in June, then it was moved to September, and then moved again to an unspecifiied date in November.
