Huawei cautiously delays folding Mate X in view of Samsung’s Galaxy Fold debacle

Despite being quite a promising device, the Samsung Galaxy Fold's launch didn't go as smoothly as expected.

As the press conferences from the other major tech companies get underway here in Barcelona, we expect to see a few more devices with flexible screens, and the first of those to be unveiled is the Huawei Mate X.
