Huawei Mate X 3C certified with 55W charger; Launch could be imminent

As reported by the American channel CNBC, Huawei made a decision to postpone the release of foldable Mate X in September of this year. Samsung's foldable device was originally scheduled to launch on April 26 but that changed with the screen problems reported by early reviewers. But there's an unexpected side-effect that's beneficial to Samsung, the best looking foldable phone of the year was delayed to September because of what happened to the Galaxy Fold so far. Huawei has confirmed to news sites, including the BBC, that the phone is expected to launch in September.

It's an explanation that makes sense, but it's still unusual for a company to delay the launch of their product exclusively because their competitor's product has design flaws.

In May, DJ Koh, Samsung's CEO promised that "we will not be too late", in terms of launch timing.

Kevin Durant confirmed what was most feared: He underwent surgery for a ruptured right Achilles tendon. The Warriors - down 3-2 to the Raptors - must win Games 6 (Thursday) and 7 (Sunday) without Durant.

According to CNBC and The Wall Street Journal, Huawei is still doing rigorous testing to make sure the device was ready for consumers, and that the company was taking a "cautious" approach following the failed launch of Samsung's own Galaxy Fold.

"We don't want to launch a product to destroy our reputation", a spokesperson told CNBC, so Huawei is extra "caution" making sure it doesn't pull a Samsung with its foldable device.

Earlier this week, AT&T canceled Galaxy Fold preorders in the U.S., joining Samsung and Best Buy which did the same thing a few weeks earlier.

Russian Federation says Syrian rebels, not Syrian army attacked Turkish observation post
Speaking to Anadolu news agency, Cavusoglu said it is impossible to cancel the S-400 orders. It said Russian authorities were contacted over the incident.

Huawei is now working on its own operating systems for smartphones, laptops, and other devices. The FlexPai foldable phone has a lower price tag than the Galaxy Fold and Mate X but it is still more expensive than a flagship smartphone. The phone is priced starting at $2600, which is more expensive than the $1980 Samsung Galaxy Fold. However, it maintains this is "plan B" and says it wants to continue using Android if possible.

Learning from this mistake, Huawei's bend goes out, rather than in like the Fold.
