Huawei has listed the Mate X in TENAA — the Chinese telecommunications equipment certification authority — complete with its full specs.

Such listings are usually indicative of an imminent launch.

According to the listing, the Huawei Mate X will have an 8-inch foldable OLED display with a 2,480 x 2,200 resolution. When folded, one blade shows a 6.6-inch, 2,480 x 1,148-pixel display area. 

The other screen is a smaller 6.38-inch 2,480 x 892-pixel screen area because that blade also has a black bar that holds the camera module, which has a 40-megapixel sensor with f/1.8 lens, a f/2.4 telephoto lens with 8-megapixel sensor, and an ultra wide f/2.2 aperture lens with a 16-megapixel sensor.

The official price is not on the site, but we previously reported that the Mate X will cost an eye-watering €2,299 (around $2,602 based on currency conversions) for an 8GB RAM/512GB storage variant. To put that in context, Samsung’s Galaxy Fold has a starting price of $1,980.

Huawei delayed the June launch of the Mate X after the Samsung Galaxy Fold imploded and the Korean company delayed its release. Samsung latelr said that the Fold’s problems have been solved and the phone’s re-launch is coming soon.

There is no final release date for the Mate X yet. More
