Following the issues with Samsung Galaxy Fold, Huawei has now delayed its highly anticipated foldable phone’s launch date. The Mate X is now scheduled to be launched between June and September, according to reports.
Recently, Huawei interacted with the news channels and reported that the team is currently working on the testing part to make sure that the device is bug-free and is ready for consumers. Besides this, the company also informed that the engineers are taking a cautious” approach after the Galaxy Fold faced display issues when it came into the hands of the people.
Galaxy Fold was announced in April, but Samsung delayed the launch date of the product after the early users of the device received faulty products which broke in a matter of days.
“We don’t want to launch a product to destroy our reputation,” a spokesperson for Huawei told the news channels
The major problem that Huawei is facing is not the reliability of its untested foldable technology in the new Galaxy Mate X, but the problem is the effects of the US trade ban that the Chinese firm is facing.
There are no reports regarding when will the Huawei Mate X hit the market and whether it will be launched with Android or other operating system is still uncertain. A leading newspaper recently reported, “the Mate X will ship with Android because the phone was launched before Huawei was placed on the Entity List, but the WSJ says that this issue is still being discussed.”
A spokesperson from Huawei told the newspaper, “We would prefer to go with Google’s software but added: If we are forced to do it by ourselves, we are ready. We can do in the next six-to-nine months.”
