One personHUAWEIIn an interview with foreign media TechRadar, executives said Mate X was not delayed because of policy constraints in the United States, but because the carrier's 5G network was launched too slowly.
Vincent Pang said that although it will not be available soon, the folding-screen smartphone is expected to be launched in September and will run the current version of Android mobile operating system, because it was released before the Trump ban.
In addition, even if the U.S. market is omitted, Mate X is expected to be launched in all markets that offer 5G networks. In order to avoid screen problems similar to Galaxy Fold, Huawei has also done a lot of tests. However, the specific durability improvement is still in the stage of confidentiality.
Finally, another report from ZDNet said that the launch was delayed due to the slow progress of the 5G network, rather than having design or quality problems.
Another Huawei executive said at the Nova 5 conference last week that there was no exact release date for Mate X, and that the earliest possible release date was the end of July.
