- The newest Huawei Mate X's release is being delayed by three months.
- Huawei claims that the delay is not connected to the U.S. Entity List.
- The new Mate X is a 5G device that is also foldable.
Huawei has run into several issues, including having to delay the launch of a device due to the U.S. Entity list which bans American companies from selling technology to certain companies. But Huawei's head of corporate communications, Vincent Pang, stated that the delay of the Mate X is not connected to the U.S. Entity list. Instead, Huawei is going to work on improving the folding screen. Pang said that the device is going through certification tests with multiple carriers and expects testing to be completed in August.
This isn't the first foldable device to be delayed. The Samsung Galaxy Fold has been pushed back multiple times. At this moment, there isn't a foldable smartphone that's commercially available.
