A month after the Huawei Mate X launch was postponed following the Samsung Galaxy Fold debacle, the Chinese tech giant may be finally getting ready to make the device available commercially. The phone was recently listed on the website of Chinese electronics certifications agency, TENAA, revealing many of its key specifications.
Listed with model number TAH-AN00, the Mate X will apparently feature an 8-inch OLED panel with a resolution of 2,480 x 2,200 pixels. It will be powered by the Kirin 980 SoC and will be offered in three different configurations: 6GB + 128GB, 8GB + 256GB and 12GB + 512GB. The listing also seemingly confirms that it will have a 5G avatar, thanks to the Balong 5000 5G modem that Huawei says will make the device the world’s fastest 5G phone.
The final retail model is also said to have a 4,400mAh battery instead of the 4,500mAh unit in the prototypes demoed at MWC earlier this year. The listing further revealed that the Mate X will measure 161.3mm x 146.2mm x 11mm and weigh 287 grams. While the demo units at the MWC came with a triple-camera setup at the rear, the TENAA listing suggests a qaud-cam module, so it will be interesting to see how that plays out going forward.
Given that these are the official specs listed on the regulator’s website, they will very likely turn out to be the final specs. However, it will still be interesting to see if Huawei makes some last-minute changes, especially, for global markets. For now, though, there is no official release date for the phone just yet, but we’ll hopefully get more info about that in the days ahead.
