It’s no secret that Huawei has delayed the launch of its Mate X foldable phone to later this year.

But the Mate 30 series is almost upon us, too. Said to come with the new Kirin 990 processor that the company is expected to unveil at IFA this September, Huawei will have a positioning problem on its hands if the Mate X continues to use last year’s Kirin 980 processor.

It seems that Huawei has taken this into consideration. According to Neowin, during this time that Huawei is optimising the Mate X’s screen and hinge design, the company has also decided to upgrade some of its other components to avoid any confusion regarding its flagship status.

More specifically, when the Mate X is finally launched (the word is November), it will also come with the Kirin 990 chipset. Manufactured using a 7nm process, its headline features include 5G support and 4K video recording at 60 fps.

Huawei has apparently also swapped the foldable phone’s RGB sensor with an RYYB module, similar to the one found on the highly-acclaimed P30.

Finally, there’s also the possibility that the Mate X will ship with EMUI 10.
