Timeline of news and rumors Huawei Mate X2
The new version of the foldable smartphone with flexible screen Huawei Mate X2 has finally been announced
At the end of February 2021, Huawei finally unveiled its new folding smartphone Mate X2. It is a flagship model at a very high price from $2,780 / €2,300 (for the 256 GB version) or from $2,940 / €2,420 (for the 512 GB version). And it’s important to understand that this niche device isn’t for every customer. We assume that the Mate X2 will be able to buy people who need to show their high social status, and at the same time, the monthly income allows them to make such expensive purchases. It is also worthwhile to correctly perceive the wave of marketing content on the Internet, which will generate hundreds of «opinion leaders» accounts, to whom Huawei has given the smartphone for temporary use.
Having figured out the positioning of the smartphone at a price of almost $ 3000, now we can list its characteristics. Of course, in the first place it is worth telling about the flexible OLED screen, which in the open position has a diagonal of 8 inches, 2480×2200 pixels and a refresh rate of 90 Hz. For this model, Huawei has developed a new folding mechanism, and now the screen closes inward. And here it is important to note that the mechanism fixes the position of the screen only at two points — fully closed and fully open. This means that opening the screen of the Mate X2 at an angle and leaving it in that position will not work.
Outside, the smartphone has a second screen with a diagonal of 6.45 inches and it is also made using OLED technology. And like any flagship in 2021, the Mate X2 gets top-of-the-line specs. Namely: 256 or 512 GB of internal memory, the main quad-camera with Leica optics (50 Mp Wide + 12 Mp Telephoto + 8 Mp Periscope telephoto + 16 Mp UltraWide, all modules received optical stabilization, except for the last one on the list), a selfie camera with a 16 megapixel module, support for 5G networks, Kirin 9000 5G chipset, Android 10 operating system with EMUI 11.0 shell (but the manufacturer promises an update to the Harmony OS version in April).
What else is there in the Mate X2: a battery with a capacity of 4500 mAh, stereo speakers, an NFC module and a fingerprint scanner on the right edge of the case, a face recognition function, a slot for a SIM card and a Nano Memory card (two SIM cards or one SIM card + memory card), support for many standards Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac/ax+, Bluetooth 5.2, navigation with GPS, A-GPS (GLONASS, Beidou, Qzss, Galileo, NavIC).
The body is made of a metal frame with glass panels at the back and front. The following body colors will be available on the market: black, white, blue and pink. The device weighs 295 grams. Case size: 161.8×145.8×8.2 mm — open, 161.8×74.6×14.7 mm — folded.
The Mate X2 is slated to start shipping on February 25 in China, priced at CNY 18,000 for the 256GB version, or CNY 19,000 for the 512GB version. The date for the start of global sales in other markets is not yet known.
The folding smartphone Huawei Mate X2 with flexible screen certified in China: Kirin 9000 chipset, dual screens (8 and 6.45 inches), 50 MP quad camera, Android 10
Back in November 2020, the new Huawei Mate X2 smartphone was certified in the Chinese TENAA registry. But then few characteristics were revealed, and now the tipster Digital Chat Station has published a very detailed list of characteristics of the new folding smartphone Mate X2.
According to rumors, the Huawei Mate X2 will have a foldable form factor with a flexible screen. The inner screen has a diagonal of 8 inches when unfolded, while the outer side has a 6.45-inch screen, which can be used when the smartphone is folded.
The «heart» of the Mate X2 is the Kirin 9000 chipset with support for 5G networks, and the smartphone will run Android 10. This is very strange, because it would be better to buy a smartphone with the latest version of Android 11 in 2021.
The quad camera on the back has sensors: 50 MP + 16 MP + 12 MP + 8 MP. One of the modules will support 10x zoom. The front camera has a 16 megapixel sensor. The battery capacity is also known — 4 400 mAh. The battery will support 66W fast charging.
The date of the official announcement is still unknown. However, like the price of Huawei Mate X2, it also remains a mystery.
