Huawei has now presented its new foldable mobile Mate X2, reports The Verge.
The phone is the sequel to the foldable Mate X that was released in 2019 and has a completely new design with a larger screen that opens up from inside the phone rather than the screen extending around its outside.
In the folded position, the Mate X2 uses an additional screen on the outside instead. The inner screen is 8 inches and has a resolution of 2480 x 2200 while the outer one is 6.45 inches and has a resolution of 2700 x 1160. Both screens are oled and have a refresh rate of 90Hz.
Inside the Mate X2, we then find Huawei’s Kirin 9000 circuit, 8 GB of memory, 256 or 512 GB of storage and a battery of 4,400 mAh that can be quickly charged up to 55W.
At the rear, the Mate X2 has four cameras. A wide angle of 50 megapixels, an ultra wide angle of 16 megapixels, a telephoto lens with three times optical zoom of 12 megapixels and a “Superzoom” with ten times optical zoom of 8 megapixels. On the outside of the phone there is also a selfie camera of 16 megapixels.
Because it is a Huawei device, it does not support Google’s apps or services. The phone runs on EMUI 11.0 which is based on Android 10. According to Huawei, however, the plan is to update the phone to Huawei’s own operating system Harmony OS in April.
Huawei Mate X2 will be released in China on February 25 as two models with 256 and 512 GB of storage respectively. The price is set at 17,999 yuan, corresponding to approximately SEK 23,000 excluding local supplements, and SEK 18,999 yuan, corresponding to approximately SEK 24,290 excluding local supplements.
The mobile will be available in blue, pink, black and white. When and if it will be released outside the home country is still unknown.
