We reached out to Huawei for more clarification but have so far only been able to confirm that the September delay is real.
According to the spokesperson, Huawei intends to launch the device globally prioritizing markets that are rolling out 5G, as the Mate X is 5G compatible.
We have flexible display technology now, but implementing it into a device that most people use extensively throughout the day is proving to be incredibly hard for even the most experienced smartphone manufacturers.

The Mate X was originally expected to launch in June after Huawei promised a mid-2019 debut.
Huawei clearly wants to avoid those kinds of headaches, so it's going to take more time to make sure the €2,299 Mate X (roughly $2,600) is up to snuff. And so, it's moving the release of the Mate X to September.
Huawei has not given a timeframe on when buyers can expect to get their hands on the redesigned Mate X, but with much of the global turmoil the company faces with getting its products into the USA or using Google's popular Android mobile operating system for its devices, the delay could be quite extensive to compound matters.
"We don't want to launch a product to destroy our reputation", a spokesman for the company said. In addition to an executive order barring the purchase of Huawei's telecom equipment, the U.S. Department of Commerce has placed Huawei on its Entity List, which bars U.S. firms from supplying the Chinese company with hardware and software.
For now, Huawei is saying the device will run on Android - not Huawei's "plan B" custom OS' - because it was announced before the ban. Google cut Huawei from Android earlier this year, though that decision was postponed for three months after US Commerce Department granted the firm a temporary general license to update its existing devices.
