Huawei Mate X3 is under work and the company is developing the foldable phone with a thin and light design, says a tipster. Weibo tipster Classmateguan reveals that the Huawei Mate X3 foldable device will come with around 250 grams of weight. Compared to the Huawei Mate X2 (298 grams), Huawei Mate X3 is light in weight.
The tipster also revealed that the phone contains a 4800mAh battery, which is bigger than the 4500mAh battery in the Huawei Mate X2. However, the charger will only support 66W chargers out of the box.
In terms of processor, the Huawei Mate X3 could be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 4G chipset with octa-core architecture. This includes 1 × Cortex-X2 3.0GHz+3 × Cortex-A710 2.5GHz+ 4 × Cortex-A510 1.8GHz. There’s also Adreno 730 GPU.
Despite the fact that Huawei has not confirmed this smartphone officially. However, the tipster suggests that Huawei Mate X3 could launch in January before Spring Festival. Still, there are chances that this event could delay or reschedule.
Coming back to the size, the reduction in weight suggests that Huawei Mate X3 may strip down display size. Still, there is no input on the screen at the moment. Moreover, we can expect that Huawei will retain an inward folding screen mechanism including a main foldable display and an interactable cover screen on the rear.
