Ahead of the official release, a store in China was spotted displaying a poster promoting Huawei’s first foldable phone, the Mate X which would also be among its first with 5G connectivity.

The poster does not list any dates, but it hints that the launch is near, news portal GSM Arena reported on Monday.

The President of Huawei’s Product Division said in an interview earlier this month that the Huawei Mate X would be available in China in late July or early August.

In terms of specifications, the device houses the latest Leica cameras, supporting advanced imaging features to date.

The foldable design lets the camera system play the role of both front and rear cameras. When folded, the HUAWEI Mate X shows a view finder on both sides so even the subjects in the frame can contribute to the creative process, the company said earlier.

As Huawei’s first 5G smartphone, the Mate X runs on the Balong 5000 chipset, which is the world’s first multi-mode 5G processor with 7nm process and thus supports 2G, 3G, 4G and 5G with a single chip.

With its “Falcon Wing Mechanical” hinge, when unfolded, the 6.6-inch dual display panel transforms into an 8-inch tablet that is only 5.4-mm thick.

Sending a messege to the US that it can do without Google Maps, Chinese telecom and handset giant Huawei has now struck a partnership with Dutch location technology provider TomTom, which will allow it to use the companys maps, traffic information and navigation software to develop its own mobile apps.

Fortunately for Huawei, TomTom isn’t just a new player in that field, having specialised in navigation services and devices for more than two decades now.

The arrangement had been struck a while back, according to TomTom’s Remco Meerstra, but hadn’t been revealed until now. The company declined to share more details, Engadget reported on Monday.

This partnership is almost providential just as the Dutch location technology firm decided to shift its focus away from hardware and into licensing software and selling services.

And even better, it isn’t affected by the US Entity List ban on Huawei, according to Slash Gear.
