Huawei Mate X Delays Launch to avoid Samsung’s Mistake

In the wake of Huawei’s United States ban, it is easy to forget that the company was due to launch one of the first folding phones to hit the market. Huawei Foldable Mate X was set to go head-to-head with Samsung’s Galaxy Fold. But after the company delayed the device due to problems with early review units. Huawei now says it wants to avoid the same mistakes.

The Mate X was originally announced in February and was rumored to launch in June. A Huawei spokesperson told CNBC the launch will now take place in September. Huawei had not announced an official release date. The spokesperson also said that the company is doing extra testing to make sure apps work when the device is fully unfolded.

Will Huawei Mate X run Android?

Huawei claims that the export ban doesn’t affect the Mate X since it was announced way before the ban. The US government also gave Huawei 90 days of retention time that began on May 20. It would end before the Mate X’s September launch. For now, Huawei Mate X will run on Android and not Huawei’s Hongmeng OS (or Ark OS). Mate X presumably received its Android rights from Google before the ban went into effect.

Huawei Mate X passes China’s 3C Certification shows 65W Super Charging Speeds

Huawei Mate X has recently passed through the Chinese 3C certification. It is list under model number TAH-AN00. Above all, it is the company’s second 5G phone to receive 3C Certification. The certification suggests that the device could be launching soon in China. As per the listing, the Huawei Mate X will come with an HW-200200CP1 charger that supports up to 65W charging. This is contradictory to the 55W SuperCharge fast technology revealed by the company at its launch.

Huawei already had a difficult road to prove it could make an innovative folding phone for the customers. Also, the US ban makes that all the more difficult to build trust. Most noteworthy, it is a good thing the company is taking some extra time to improve user experience and not trying to be first in the market to bring the foldable smartphone.
