This week we met the new Google phones, the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL as well as other products and services more launched by the search giant in its autumnal event. But not everything was Google this week, because we also had news from Huawei and the possible launch of its folding cell phone, the Huawei Mate X.

                    The Huawei Mate X would arrive soon and Zuckerberg talks about …


CNET Week in Spanish is a program – yes, weekly – that you can see on our video website
 or also on our YouTube channel.

The Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL are in our hands and our colleague Juan Garzón has already been tested. In his first impressions Juan told us that while they are very complete cell phones, a 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 this we must add that they do not have a 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 bad.

You can learn more about the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL in our review and in our comparative gallery of cameras where we face them with the iPhone 11 Pro.

And now we have 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 of launching HarmonyOS on par with Android on their cell phones. That strategy, say the rumors, is for users to test both operating systems and learn about the operation of HarmonyOS, the platform that the company would be forced to use if Google prevents access to Android or its official applications.

As if this were not enough, another rumor this week says that Huawei could launch the Huawei Mate X this October, although the company could only place 300,000 units in the Chinese market, a low figure compared to the Galaxy Fold that Samsung placed in South Korea, and they are estimated at about 700,000. In addition, this week an unboxing of the folding cell of the Chinese company was also leaked.

Also this week we had news from Facebook, as Mark Zuckerberg gave a lecture at Georgetown University, where he talked about the importance of freedom of expression in social networks. His words come after the senator and presidential candidate for the Democratic Party, Elizabeth Warren, said that after changing her ad policy to allow politicians to post ads that include lies, Facebook became a "disinformation machine for profit. "

By the way we invite you to take a look at the new Beats Solo Pro, which we are already testing, and in CNET Pop we tell you what we think of El Camino, the Breaking Bad movie on Netflix.
