According to Huawei’s Consumer Business Mobile Product Line President He Gang, the tech giant is still optimizing the Mate X, and it can’t go commercially available until it finally meets the brand’s quality requirements.

Huawei also explained that the device is still in the process of optimization, as it involves new processes, design, methods, and more. With this, the company admitted that its challenges are harder than its expectations.

“Everyone should be very clear that Huawei’s quality requirements are very demanding. If it does not meet the quality requirements, we will not let the products go on the market,” He Gang noted.

In case you missed it, the Mate X comes with three display options. When on tablet mode, the handset features a square-like 8-inch OLED screen. On the other hand, when its folded, the device flashes back-to-back display. The bigger 6.6-inch panel has 19.5:9 aspect ratio, while the secondary 6.38-inch screen delivers an unusual 25:9 aspect ratio.
