The Mate X is delayed, and the Galaxy Fold comes forward
The race to be the first folding phone to reach the market is getting very interesting. When it seemed that it would be Samsung whoever reached the finish line first, problems with the protection of the screen and the hinge forced the manufacturer to postpone the launch a few days after doing so. This placed Huawei as an unexpected winner, since with another strategy (another different design, rather), he assured that it would arrive in September with its price of 2,000 euros.

Say hello to Mate X: Huawei's first folding phone is here
Well, in the end Huawei will not be the one who feels the winner, since the brand has communicated in a press event held in Shenzhen that its phone can not be launched before November, although never later than 2019. As if from a Last curve in a Formula 1 Grand Prix, Samsung seems to have advanced Huawei at the last moment after an unexpected engine breakdown, so if no more surprise occurs, the checkered flag will fly in honor of the Koreans
Why has the Huawei Mate X been delayed?
The brand has not gone into details, so we do not know exactly what could have happened with a device that seemed to have everything under control. It is true that access to the device has been quite limited, and we have not seen beyond the same home screen and icons that we could see by first time at MWC.
Such secrecy and lack of novelties made one suspect in this regard, although taking into account the fragility and exclusivity of the unit shown, it was normal that extreme precautions were taken to protect what could be one of the few units available from the manufacturer.
Given this situation, now we can only wait to see exactly when we will see it in stores, since we could be talking about both the month of November and even the month of December, a month that, by the way, would coincide with the Christmas campaign. Who wants to ask for a folding phone for Christmas?
