Samsung’s first foldable smartphone, the Galaxy Fold, is competing directly against Huawei’s first of the kind, the Mate X, on the Chinese market. The Korean phone-maker officially launched the Galaxy Fold — we called it “one of the coolest products” in a decade — in China on Friday.
The Korea Herald reports that China is the 24th country where the Galaxy Fold rolls out, granted, only in its 4G iteration, going for $2,293. By comparison, the Huawei Mate X, launched on October 23, is 5G capable and is only about $100 more expensive, at circa $2,400. It will also be available in China on November 15.
