Huawei postponed the release date of Mate X to September for futher perfection and test

By  Sophia Windsor 2019-06-15 302 0

Huawei has officially confirmed the postponement of the launch of its first 5G foldable screen phone, the Mate X, until September. The Mate X, which was released during the MWC Communications Show in February, costs 2299 euros (about 17000 yuan) and was scheduled to go on sale worldwide in June. Huawei's official announcement of the delay was clearly unexpected after Mate X was awarded 3C certification in China and the media speculated that its national version was about to go public.

Huawei said that they delay to launch the Mate X is to ensure the quality.

In an interview with CNBC, a Huawei spokesman said Huawei did not want to repeat the same mistake because of a number of problems with Samsung's Galaxy Fold before it went public. "We don't want to launch products that damage Huawei's reputation," a Huawei spokesman said in an interview with Huawei. "

At the same time, a Huawei spokesman said Mate X was simply conducting better testing and working more closely with operators, not because of Google's ban on Huawei's Android.

In fact, when testing Huawei's Mate X, foreign media said the machine was better designed, with less potential faults and smoother shafts than the inverted folding screen.

Even so, however, there is a crease problem in the middle of the Mate X screen, which may be one of the reasons for Huawei's delay.

In addition, foreign media previously reported that Huawei Mate X faces a shortage of key components due to US restrictions, including transparent glue for flexible screens, which is provided by 3M, making it difficult to find alternatives in the short term.

Or still running Android, it will take another six to nine months.

As the representative of Huawei 5G mobile phone, Mate X carries Kirin 980 + Barone 5000 baseband, and the download speed can easily exceed that of 1Gbps (network support is required).

As for its system, a Huawei spokesman said in an interview with CNBC that the device would still run Android because it was actually released prior to the release of the physical list in the United States and was not affected.

Finally, a Huawei spokesman revealed that Hong Meng OS, a self-research system, said: "We still want to continue to work with Google, but if we are forced to use our own system, we are ready to do so in the next six to nine months."

In addition, another folding screen phone Samsung Galaxy Fold is not optimistic.

Although South Korean media had previously said Samsung had made significant progress in fixing defects in the machine, the Korean Herald recently reported that the news was false, and Samsung executives interviewed said there had been "no progress since the extension in April," meaning that Galaxy Fold would probably not be available before the launch of the Samsung Note10.
