Huawei has introduced these days the Mate 20X 5G in China. On the sidelines of this release, the president of the brand's product division – He Gang – was asked about the development of its folding smartphone. According to the executive, Mate X is still being improved.
He Gang claims that Mate X is still in the process of optimization as it involves new, time-consuming design methods. As you would expect, Mate X cannot go public without meeting all the necessary quality requirements.
The new processes thus cause difficulties at various levels of development. And He Gang admits that the challenges related to this product are greater than expected by the company.
“Everyone should be very clear that Huawei's quality standards are very high. If it does not meet our quality standards, we will not let products reach the market, ”admitted the executive.
Huawei is not concerned about the Galaxy Fold
Huawei is not concerned about the recent announcement of the Galaxy Fold for September. “We have invested heavily in Mate X. The date when Samsung's device will hit the market is not a point we have to consider. What we have to consider is to bring this product to consumers with quality, ”he said.
Mate X was announced at the Mobile World Congress in February. Five months later we are still waiting for the folding smartphone. The Galaxy Fold will arrive in September, and Huawei's proposal in this segment should come soon.
