The first two flexible smartphones on the market have not experienced a particularly easy life on their way to shelves, but we seem to be approaching a day when consumers with large resources can begin to debate - this time really.

After Samsung declared that The reinforced Galaxy Fold Coming to the stores next month, Huawei had to publicly admit that Their folding Mate X model It will not arrive in September as planned, but only in November - with a theoretical possibility that any additional problems in the production process will result in a postponement of the launch even somewhere in 2020.

The final version of the Mate X will offer enhancements to the unique folding axis (which received the nickname Falcon Hinge) over the prototype models presented to journalists, and a minor change to the model's on and off button

The Mate X was recently documented by the Chinese Standards Agency - which may indicate that official launch before the end of the year is an accomplished fact, at least for some markets
