It was the first major United States service to pick up OnePlus phones, for instance.

For imaging purposes, you can expect a 40MP main sensor, an 8MP telephoto lens, a 16MP ultrawide lens and a time of flight camera. And despite claiming it was on track for June, Huawei also quietly delayed the Mate X.

It can not be denied that Samsung was in a bit of a hurry to beat Huawei to it. Samsung's experience with the foldable phone, however led to Huawei too postponing its launch date. There is no word on whether there will be design changes on the Mate X like the Galaxy Fold. The Galaxy Fold will be available from September in select markets. As for the software, Huawei told CNBC the Mate X will be allowed to use Android because it was announced before the ban, although the company's license expires in August, so it's unclear what will happen.
