Huawei Mate X foldable phone was supposed to launch last month, but there’s still no sign of the foldable flagship phone on the horizon.

However, that could soon change, according to a new listing by China’s TENAA certification board.

New details about the hotly-anticipated smartphone, listed with model number TAH-AN00, are revealed in the certification document.

The finalised dimensions of the Huawei Mate X foldable phone are also published here for the first time. Unfolded, the handset measures 161.3mm x 146.2mm x 11mm. It weighs 287g.

Finally, the listing confirms that there will be a 5G variant of the Mate X, as Huawei had discussed during its briefing back in February. There will also be three configurations for the pliable handset: 6GB + 128GB, 8GB + 256GB, and 12GB + 512GB. Additional storage can be added via microSD.

Given Huawei has previously confirmed the Mate X foldable phone series will start from €2,299 (some £2,050 converted) presumably that’ll be for the model with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage.

That’s less than the entry-level P30 Pro, which has 8GB of RAM by default and definitely costs much, much less than €2,299. More
