In March, after the presentation of the Huawei P30 series. There, Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei, detailed that the Mate Huawei has since decided to delay the launch of its first foldable phone to avoid potential hardware failures like Samsung’s Galaxy Fold.
“It will arrive in September at the latest,” said Vincent Pang, president of Huawei’s Western European Region, while visiting New York City. “Probably sooner, but September is definitely guaranteed.”
Now, ahead of its imminent launch, the device has been seen in person. Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei’s Consumer Business Division, has been seen using the phone at an airport.
The device was scheduled to be released the previous month, but for fear of the GalaxyFold experience. Now, it looks like Huawei has taken the Mate X through rigorous testing and is now ready to hit shelves. The device has received regulatory approval in China, suggesting it is ready to go on sale in the country.
Huawei Product Division President He Gang in an interview at the launch of the Nova 5 series hinted that the Huawei Mate X will go on sale in late July or early August in China. Perhaps a wider release will begin in September.
