Chinese smartphone manufacturer Huawei has delayed the market delivery of its foldable smartphone Mate X from June to September. Mate X was launched in February this year.
The Chinese tech giant said that it was taking a "cautious" approach with the shipments, following the failed launch of Samsung's own foldable device -- the Galaxy Fold, The Verge reported late on Friday.
After extensive tests, the device has passed the Chinese 3C certification mark, a mandatory product certification system with the aim of protecting consumer security, under model number TAH-AN00.
It is likely to include a new power adapter with a maximum output of 65W with a HW-200200CP1 charger. The smartphone when unfolded, measures in at 8-inches while the Galaxy Fold's display is 7.3-inches. When folded, the displays are 6.6-inches and 4.6-inches, respectively.
The device is powered by a 1.8GHz octa-core Huawei HiSilicon Kirin 980 processor that features 2 cores clocked at 2.6GHz, 2 cores clocked at 1.92GHz and 4 cores clocked at 1.8GHz. It comes with 8GB of RAM.
The phone runs Android 9.0 and is powered by a 4,500mh battery and supports proprietary fast charging. The launch delay could also be affected with the companies ongoing battle with US companies, especially Google, which has been asked to cut support of Android for Huawei devices within the next couple of months.
