Many Huawei enthusiasts had anticipated a formal launch event for the Mate 60 series. However, rather than hosting such an event, the company opted to introduce these devices by listing them directly on Huawei Mall (Vmall).
Initial reports had suggested that Huawei might organize a launch event in September to introduce additional devices, including the Mate 60 Pro+ 5G and the Huawei Mate X5 foldable phone.
Surprisingly, Huawei has followed a similar approach by directly listing these products on the Huawei Mall, without the need for a dedicated launch event. Here, we’ll drive into the specifications, features, and pricing of the Mate X5.
