The Mate X grabbed headlines worldwide last month after raking in 34 awards in Barcelona, Spain. Its most prominent feature is a screen that can be folded and stretched.
The official launch in Cambodia took place at Huawei’s office in Phnom Penh’s Exchange Square.
According to Huawei, the Mate X is the only existing handset designed for different phases of future commercial 5G development. It is hailed by the manufacturers as the world’s fastest foldable 5G phone.
Henry Xiao, Huawei country director, said at the launch that the Mate X has revolutionised the mobile phone sector, bringing unprecedented human-smartphone interaction experience, and leading innovation in the smartphone industry.
He said Huawei entered Cambodia 20 years ago and has always been dedicated to the development of the local ICT sector.
“Huawei’s vision and mission in Cambodia are clear: we will bring the digital world to every person, home and organisation to build a fully connected and intelligent Cambodia,” he said.
