At the end of April, we learned about a number of problems appeared on the review units of the Samsung Galaxy Fold. As a result, the manufacturer has had to postpone its launch. Till the date, it has not determined a specific launch date. Though some Samsung executives said that Galaxy Fold is ‘ready to enter the market’, still we haven’t got any official statement. But one thing is encouraging – the South Korean manufacturer has announced for a few times that this handset will hit the market in summer. Yesterday, at the Huawei Nova 5 launch, the Chinese tech giant issued a statement. According to it, the company’s own folding phone the Mate X will be available from the end of July to the beginning of August.

As TechRadar reports, Huawei’s Western European region president Vincent Pang said, ‘It will be launched in September at the latest.

Huawei’s Vincent Pang said that it can be equipped with Android because the folding screen device was announced in February this year, while Huawei entered US backlist in May. Thus, the Huawei Mate X shouldn’t be banned. FYI, the Huawei Mate X will provide 5G services in any country, except for the United States.
The Huawei executive also said that in the past few months, Huawei has been improving the P-OLED screen on the device. Currently, the company is taking steps to prevent it from encountering the same problems as the Samsung Fold, but the details are kept secret.
Many have been wondering if everything is ok with the Huawei Mate X, why its launch was pushed back? Huawei explains it in its own way. The Mate X has not yet obtained the network access license and needs to conduct network testing. At the same time, the folding screen also needs a lot of application adaptation work.
