Galaxy Fold and Huawei Mate X: will it be worth it?


CNET Week in Spanish is a weekly program that you can enjoy on our video website and also on our YouTube channel.

Samsung announced without much fuss that the Galaxy Fold be finally released in September, after the company took charge of repairing the first failures that sounded the alarms in April, when some test units presented fractured screens after removing a protective film that should not be separated from the panel.

Samsung says to have solved that problem and says she is ready to sell the cell phone, which will cost US $ 1,980.

Also this week we learned again about Huawei Mate X. Huawei's folding cell phone was seen in the hands of the company's chief executive, Richard Yu, and the photographs came to the Internet. We do not know when to officially launch, because problems with the United States may have delayed the company's plans.

And if you were wondering if Facebook would pay in any way for all the gaps to the privacy of its users that have been uncovering in recent years, that moment has arrived: the United States government has imposed a fine of US $ 5,000 million, the largest imposed by privacy issues in the country, and Mark Zuckerberg, the company's chief executive, will have to give a quarterly report to report any security breach.

And as not everything in this life is super expensive phones, this week Motorola launched the Moto E6 that costs $ 150, and Honor launched in China the Honor 9X and 9X Pro, which still do not reach the West and are worth less than US $ 200.

We also have some news from the last hour in this weekly newsletter: Apple bought Intel's mobile chip division worth US $ 1 billion and may launch the first iPhone chip made with Intel technology in 2021, and T-Mobile and Sprint have received a green light from the US Department of Justice to merge the two operators.
