Huawei is pushing back the release date of its bendable phone until the fall due to problems with Samsung and U.S. sanctions
The Chinese company Huawei has stated that Won’t release its bendable phone until September at the earliest The change in timing is not critical – just a few weeks. According to the company, the change in the launch date is due to the developers’ desire to make sure that Huawei doesn’t have the same problems as Samsung did with the Galaxy Fold.
A few weeks ago, the South Korean company started sending out its devices for review to bloggers and tech journalists. Many of them encountered problems – the phone stopped working properly after just a day or two. As it turned out, the problems that lead to inoperability are several. It is contamination of the bending place with dust, as well as the desire of users to get rid of the film on the screen, which, as it turned out, forms a single whole with the display. Plus, human users do not fold and unfold the device’s screen the way robots do on test benches in Samsung’s labs.
The Huawei Mate X is a bendable phone that supports fifth-generation networks. The device will cost about 2, 299 euros.
The company unveiled its device in February of this year. Huawei first announced that it was going to launch sales of the device in April, then the release date was pushed back to summer, and now the date has been moved again to September. Until the fall, the company will test the phones in the field with the help of carriers – as far as we can understand, the device will be given to volunteers for testing, and the results of the tests will make a final sales plan.
Huawei representatives report that there are no problems with the phone, but the company decided to insure, so as not to recall the phones from the market after the launch of sales.
In addition, it could very well be that the launch of sales was affected by U.S. sanctions. For example, the company already had to cancel the launch of its Windows laptop. Earlier the device was shown at a number of technology shows, it should have been delivered to stores this year.
Despite the problems, the company so far ranks second on the list of the largest mobile device manufacturers, just behind Samsung. Huawei had planned to come out on top soon, but now it looks like there will be problems with that.
President Trump’s executive order banning U.S. companies from cooperating with Chinese electronics manufacturers, particularly Huawei, applies only to new devices. And since the Mate X was introduced before the decree, users will be able to access all Android services.
"We wouldn’t want to move to our own OS and software. We wish to continue to work with Google. But if we have to do so, we are ready. We can make the transition in a period of six to nine months, " Huawei commented on the implications of Donald Trump’s executive order.
At the same time, the deadline for U.S. companies to stop cooperating with Chinese partners has been extended. The White House has given U.S. companies two years to comply with the ban, as reported by Reuters Congressmen stressed the importance of enforcing the ban and major U.S. companies pledged to adhere to the deadline.
As for Huawei, Google, Microsoft, and ARM have suspended cooperation with it. The Chinese will now not be able to install SD memory card modules in their devices. In addition, Huawei laptops will be pre-installed with their own operating system instead of Windows.
Russian developers offered Huawei to use the domestic operating system "Aurora" for mobile devices. According to the creators of this OS, it is a worthy alternative to the operating system from Google.
