Three UK has confirmed that it will offer the Huawei Mate X in the second half of 2019, when it launches its 5G network. The carrier didn’t, however, provide a specific release date, nor did it reveal how much the foldable handset will cost.
When it announced the Huawei Mate X at MWC 2019 back in February, Huawei said it will retail for around €2299 ($2580) in Europe, which translates to somewhere in the region of £1900 ($2490) to £2000 ($2620) in the United Kingdom.
The Huawei Mate X is Huawei’s first foldable smartphone, unfurling to reveal a stunning 8-inch AMOLED screen. Under the hood, there’s a Huawei-made HiSilicon Kirin 980 CPU, 8GB of RAM and 512GB of expandable internal storage.

Flip the Mate X over and you’re greeted by a Leica-engineered quad-camera — made up of a 40MP wide, a 16MP ultra-wide, an 8MP telephoto and an Time-of-Flight (ToF) sensor; though the specification of the latter is unknown.
