The Huawei Mate X is almost here

This week we got to know the new Google, Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL phones as well as other products and services more launched by the search giant at its fall event. But it wasn’t all Google this week, as we also heard from Huawei and the possible launch of its foldable cell phone, the Huawei Mate X.

The Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL are in our hands and our colleague Juan Garzón has already tried them. In his first impressions John told us that while they are very complete cell phones, one detail that broke his heart is the fact that they have lost unlimited storage in original quality of the images and videos in Google Photos. To that we must add that they do not have wide-angle camera, and although the design is not the most elegant we have seen this year, when you have them in your hands do not feel anything bad.

And now we need to tell you everything we know about Huawei, because despite the problems with the United States, the company managed to increase its profits and, according to several reports, could be thinking about launching HarmonyOS on top of Android on their phones. That strategy, the rumors say, is so that users can test both operating systems and get to know how HarmonyOS works, the platform that the company would be forced to use if Google prevents it from accessing Android or its official apps.

As if that weren’t enough, another rumor this week claims that Huawei could launch the Huawei Mate X this same October, although the company would only be able to place in the Chinese market about 300,000 units, a low figure compared to the Galaxy Fold that Samsung placed in South Korea, and estimated at about 700,000. In addition, this week also leaked an unboxing of the Chinese company’s folding cell phone.

Also this week we heard from Facebook, as Mark Zuckerberg gave a lecture at Georgetown University, where he spoke about the importance of free speech on social media. Her words come after Democratic party sensile and presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren said that after changing its ad policy to allow politicians to run ads that include lies, Facebook became in a “for-profit disinformation machine.”
