Huawei Mate X Launch Reportedly Delayed Further

Huawei Mate X Launch Reportedly Delayed Further

However, the report claims that the company is "certain" the Mate X will be available by the end of 2019.

Samsung and Huawei have spent pretty much the entire year competing to see who can release the world's first foldable phone, and it looks like we might finally have a victor.

The global foldable phone market appears to be heating up, with Chinese telecom giant, Huawei, confirming its Mate X successor will release next year, despite the former's delayed launch.

During a briefing in China, the company said it had pushed the release date from September to November.

A photo of the rear side of the phone, although doesn't reveal much, still does seem to confirm a few things we have seen in the leaks. The Chinese phone maker wanted to avoid the same problems that Samsung ran into with the Galaxy Fold. Either way, Samsung Galaxy Fold will be launched before the Huawei Mate X. Furthermore, the site found out about the next Mate X and that it "could have more screens, and it might come out as soon as next year".

"The Mate series tends to set the tone for Huawei's next-generation of devices - it uses the latest chipset, for example".

Newark Airport was also experiencing problems that was impacting their B and C Terminals, according to their Twitter. They advised passengers to check their flight status.


Like Huawei's Mate X, precise Australian availability is yet to be officially confirmed.

The news was broken to a journalist attached to TechRadar, who wrote that it's looking unlikely that Huawei's foldable device will see a launch anytime before November.

The Mate 20 X (5G) supports both NSA and SA 5G, being the first such smartphone in existence (although there now are no SA 5G networks anywhere, but that's another story).

The final version of the handset reportedly sports a more slimline lock button that better fits the phone's form factor, and the hinge has been refined, and won't be carbon fibre.

The report also notes that Huawei is working on a new foldable screen technology.
