The Huawei Mate X has only been available for around a month now, but Huawei is already teasing its next foldable smartphone.
An updated Huawei Mate X is in the works with a better hinge, a tougher screen, and a Kirin 990 processor. During an interview with Frandroid and other press, Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei's Consumer Business Group, apparently also teased that this new Mate X could show up at Mobile World Congress in February.
It might seem fast for Huawei to introduce a new Mate X since the first model just launched a month ago, but the Mate X was actually first announced way back in February 2019. It was hit with a couple of delays, though, with Huawei reportedly taking extra time to test the foldable phone before launching it to the public. So given the yearly release schedule that most flagship smartphones follow, an MWC debut for the next Mate X could happen.
In other Huawei news, Richard Yu also said that the Huawei P40 will be shown next March. He said that the phone will include better performance and better photo quality as well as a new design. No other details about that new look were given by Yu, but we saw P40 and P40 Pro renders today that suggested that the P40 Pro could have a quad curved display with curved edges on all four sides.
