- Tram Ho
Huawei just launched the Mate X2 – its second-generation folding smartphone earlier today (February 25). However, it seems that most of the stock has been bought back by some individuals, “embraced” and sold at a higher price.
Mate X2 has a starting price of 17999 yuan (about 64.3 million) for the 256GB version of memory, while the 512GB version is sold for a list price of 18999 yuan (about 67.8 million). In other words, this is a smartphone in the “super high-end” segment and is quite expensive. However, even if you are willing to pay the aforementioned money to buy the Mate X2, you cannot place an order at this time. The order options are now hidden, even though the machine is still in stock.
More importantly, some individuals also started reselling the Mate X2 on other e-commerce sites for a higher price. In big websites like Jingdong, the price difference for a Mate X2 ranges from 10,000 to 20,000 yuan (ie 35.7 to 71.4 million).
This also means that the 256GB version of the Mate X2 priced at 17,999 yuan is currently being sold for about 28,888 yuan (~ 103 million dong), and some others even “buy and sell” with the price up. to 38,366 yuan (about 137 million dong).
In fact, Huawei Mate X2 is not the only product to be “embraced” to create artificial scarcity, then resold on third-party websites at a much higher price than the listed price.
This issue has also recently affected many different markets, including console models like the PlayStation 5 and even the GPU market. For now, it remains to be seen how Huawei will resolve this situation.
