Huawei delays launch of Mate X foldable smartphone again - report

Thursday 15 August 2019 | 16:44 CET | News

Huawei has delayed the launch of its first foldable smartphone, the Mate X. Unveiled at MWC in February, the phone was expected to go on sale mid-year and then in September, but has now been pushed back to later in the year, TechRadar learned at a press event at Huawei’s Shenzhen headquarters. No reason was given for the delay.

This could give Samsung the first-mover advantage in the foldable segment. After earlier technical problems, the Korean market leader plans to put the Samsung Galaxy Fold on the market in September

According to the report, Huawei "is certain the Mate X will launch before the end of 2019". This is likely to be November, so the company can profit from year-end holiday sales.
