Huawei never promised when exactly they would launch their folding smartphone, and last we heard they had pushed back the launch internally for more testing and also likely due to the hostile political environment.
Today we have a report that Vincent Pang, President of Huawei’s Western European Region, has confirmed a September launch date.
“It’s coming in September – at the latest. Probably earlier, but definitely September is guaranteed”, said Pang to TechRadar.
He claimed the real cause for the delay is the slow roll-out of 5G, but promised that the handset will be available in any country with a 5G network.
He claimed the device would avoid the Google Play Store ban as it was developed before the ban was announced.
The Huawei Mate X was considered by many to be the most polished folding smartphone of 2019, and is expected to retail for more than 2299 Euro. See more about the amazing handset here.
