After weeks of speculation, Huawei has confirmed that it will delay the launch of its folding smartphone, the Mate X. The Chinese company will carry out additional tests that guarantee that the device does not have any factory failure affecting the users who purchase the phone. Precautionary measures that came after the debacle of the Samsung Galaxy Fold, whose launch date was scheduled for last April and that, after the initial problems reported, is still unknown when it will hit the market.

“We do not want the launch of a product to ruin our reputation,” said a representative of the company to the North American media CNBC. According to this, it is working with operators with 5G connectivity and application developers so that no piece is left untouched in the puzzle in the face of a premiere that the Shenzhen technology continues to point all the way.

Although some sources suggested that the brand would be having problems manufacturing the device after the US verdict and the consequent impossibility of establishing commercial dealings with American companies. Huawei assures that everything is in order in the production chain and that the delay is it owes only to the aforementioned tests and extraordinary tests that are being carried out. Another big question, however, now flies over this launch: will it arrive with or without the Android version signed by Google.

According to the aforementioned media, it will do so with it, given that the device was presented prior to the commercial ban. The Wall Street Journal, however, notes that a person in charge of the company has stated that this matter “is still being discussed”. Anyway, if the release occurs, as expected, in September in different countries around the world, it is expected that it does have the Android proprietary version developed by Huawei.

In this regard, the company has once again assured that its software is only its last resort. “We do not want to use our own systems, we like to cooperate with Google in recent years, but if we are forced to do it by ourselves, we’re ready, we can do it in the next six to nine months.”
