Yes the Huawei Mate X It was announced almost half a year ago, during the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, and unlike the Samsung Galaxy Fold, which revealed serious problems linked to its durability, which in the best case endured two days without showing a damage, this terminal not only has not been released to the public, but that does not have a release date.
According He gang, Huawei's consumer smartphone business director, revealed that Mate X seems to present the same unfinished design that experienced the Galaxy Fold in its beginnings, so your launch window is still far away.
According to He Gang, Huawei are still busy "optimizing / perfecting"the Mate X to meet the strict quality requirements of the company. It also admits that this turned out to be a more challenging process regarding the original idea planned for the new procedures and design methods involved in the creation of the folding phone.
"Everyone should be very clear that Huawei's quality requirements are very demanding. If it does not meet the quality requirements, we will not allow the products to go on the market."
The last thing that was officially heard was that the Huawei Mate X would hit the market in September, like the Samsung Galaxy Fold redesigned. But seeing the statements made by the company, they don't want to suffer the same and embarrassing result from the rush Samsung for being the first company to launch a folding smartphone, so they have preferred to step on the brake and offer a terminal that lives up to what users really expect.
"We have invested a lot in the Mate X. As for when the market will arrive on the Samsung device, it is not a key point that we consider. The key point we consider is to expect consumers to obtain this product when it is available. We ensure high quality products with good consumer experience".
