Huawei Technologies has begun receiving orders in China to buy its long-awaited folding smartphone.

The launch of the 5G smartphone has been postponed twice this year, as Huawei, the world’s second-largest smartphone manufacturer, has been troubled by the U.S. listing the company on its blacklist last May.

A Huawei spokesman said the new smartphone, a rival to Galaxy Fold, will be officially launched in mid-November, China, with prices starting from $2,400.
