Huawei has delayed the launch of its Mate X foldable smartphone until September 2019.
This announcement comes amid uncertainty about the future of Huawei devices due to the blacklisting of the company by the US government, but a spokesperson said did not cite this as a reason for the delay.
Huawei’s Mate X foldable device was originally projected to launch in June or July, and was first unveiled in February 2019.
The Huawei Mate X will be available in South Africa in one colour option – Interstellar Blue – and a full protection case will be available when the device ships.
There is currently no local pricing available for the Mate X, but it is expected to be priced at around €2,299 internationally.
