Huawei Mate X3 officially launched with a 120Hz AMOLED Panel

A new member of Huawei’s “X” series of foldable phones has been unveiled. The new Mate X3 has a 7.85-inch AMOLED inner display with a 120Hz refresh rate and a Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 CPU. Let’s go through the specifications, attributes, and anticipated cost of the Huawei Mate X3 in India.

Huawei Mate X3 Overview:

Design / Form Factor

Huawei teased the foldable with the slogan “light as a wing, firm as a rock. In keeping with the slogan, the Mate X3 foldable phone weighs 239 grams less and is 5.33 mm (unfolded) thinner than the Huawei Mate X2 which weighed 295 grams and had an unfolded thickness of 8.5 mm.

The dual-track wing-shaped hinge on the foldable phone, according to Huawei, gives it a solid appearance. Glass and vegan leather are the two options the manufacturer has offered for the back panels. Moreover, the Mate X3 is water resistant and has an IPX8 grade.


Compared to the Mate X2’s 8-inch panel, the phone’s 7.85-inch LTPO foldable display is a little smaller. 2496 x 2224 pixels and 426 PPI make up its resolution. On the other hand, the cover display, at 6.4 inches, doesn’t change. The resolution is 2504 x 1080 pixels, and the PPI is the same at 426. On both displays, Huawei has added 1440 Hz PWM dimming for eye protection.

Also, the Mate X3 is the first foldable to receive two TÜV Rheinland certifications for its screen (Color Accuracy & Accurate Color Projection).

Moreover, an LTPO controller is added to the inner panel, while the outer display opts for LTPS technology for improved adaptive refresh rate management. A punch hole is present in both displays to accommodate the selfie cameras.

On the exterior display, “Kunlun” glass has been employed by the company as a display protector. The Mate 50 series also makes use of the same glass. This glass has a 10-fold boost in drop resistance, claims Huawei, making it an ultra-high strength drop-resistant material.

A layer made of non-Newtonian fluid materials that delivers 4X drop resistance is also part of the multilayered inner display. Both screens receive a five-star drop-resistance rating from SGS of Switzerland.


The Mate X3’s Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 CPU provides power behind the hood. Due to the U.S.A.’s ban on Huawei, this will only support the 4G network. The silicon uses TSMC’s 4nm manufacturing process and has a primary X2 core running at 3.2GHz. 12GB of RAM and up to 1TB of internal storage are included.

The Mate X3 uses an innovative flexible conductive layer and a cross-hinge cooling technology to control thermals. Because of its 20% bigger heat dissipation area than its predecessor, the screen is better able to distribute heat over its two parts. Similarly, the device launches HarmonyOS 13.1, which is based on Android 13.


In terms of lenses, the Mate X3 has three cameras. You may find a 50MP Sony IMX 766 primary camera on the back, along with a 13MP ultrawide and 12MP telephoto camera that can optically zoom in at a 5X rate.

For the primary and periscope lenses, with the exception of the ultrawide unit, the brand has given OIS support. X-Mage coating and filters are available for all of the lenses. On the punch-hole sides of both the outer and inner displays, there are two front cameras with an image resolution of 8MP.

A 4800mAh battery with 66W wired fast charging capabilities powers the foldable phone. Also, 50W wireless charging is supported. There is also a Collector’s Edition model available, which has a 5060mAh silicon carbon battery that is larger.

The Mate X3 has a variety of connectivity choices, including 4G, Wi-Fi 802.11 ax (2.4GHz and 5GHz), Bluetooth 5.2, GPS (L1 + L5 dual-band), NavIC, NFC, and a USB 3.1 Type-C port.
