Huawei has delayed the launch of the Mate X folding handset until September, having originally planned to launch it this summer.

The firm said it wanted to conduct extra tests following screen problems reported by early reviewers of Samsung’s Galaxy Fold.

Both firms had unveiled the devices in February but the second biggest phone manufacturer in the world said it now wanted to be “cautious”. Samsung currently has no release date for the Fold.

Huawei confirmed to the BBC that the Mate X is expected to launch in September 2019.

Huawei has also scrapped a new laptop launch this week because of its current position on a US trade blacklist.

It is accused of having committed bank fraud to evade Iran sanctions, and obstruction of justice, among other violations.
