Chinese smartphone company Huawei has unveiled its latest foldable smartphone, the Mate X2, at a special event in China. The new phone has received a radical redesign compared to the original device, with a large screen that unfolds from the inside of the device rather than around the outside, Huawei announced on its website.
The slightly wedged shape gives HUAWEI Mate X2 an extra edge. With the thinnest part at only about 4.4 mm, this inspiring design not only looks slim but also feels amazingly light. And since the centre of gravity is closer to where you hold it, you can enjoy an easier grip. the Huawei Mate X2 has a second screen on its outside, similar to Samsung’s approach with the Galaxy Fold series.
The new HUAWEI Mate X2 automatically detects signal changes. When you hold the phone in different positions, the smart antenna system deploys the less obscured antennas with better reception to achieve optimal connection speeds at all times.
HUAWEI Mate X2’s Ultra Vision Leica Quad Camera pushes the boundaries of what’s possible in a photo. From dawn to dusk and beyond, capture yourself in your best light, and the world in all its creativity. The internal screen on the Mate X2 measures 8 inches with a resolution of 2480 x 2200, while the exterior screen is 6.45 inches with a 2700 x 1160 resolution.
Both are OLED and have refresh rates of up to 90Hz. They’re also both slightly bigger than the 7.6-inch internal display and 6.2-inch external displays found on Samsung’s Galaxy Z Fold 2.
There are four cameras on the rear of the phone: a 50-megapixel wide-angle, a 16-megapixel ultrawide, a 12-megapixel telephoto with 3x optical zoom, and an 8-megapixel “SuperZoom” camera with a 10x optical zoom. The selfie camera on the outside of the phone has a 16-megapixel resolution, and there doesn’t appear to be a selfie camera in or around the foldable inner screen.
According to Huawei’s site, the phone will run on EMUI 11.0 based on Android 10. The company said it plans for the Mate X2 to be among the first phones to be updated to its own operating system, HarmonyOS, starting in April. Internally, the phone is powered by the company’s flagship Kirin 9000 chip, the processor that debuted in its Mate 40 Pro last year.
This is paired with 8GB of RAM and a battery with a rated capacity of 4,400mAh that can be fast-charged at up to 55W. The Mate X2 is technically the third phone in Huawei’s foldable lineup. Last year, it released the Mate XS, an updated version of the original Mate X, which featured a more durable display and faster Kirin 990 processor.
