Huawei introduces the foldable smartphone Mate X2


Huawei has presented its new smartphone with a flexible display: the Mate X2.

 The  special feature of the predecessor devices, the Mate X and Xs, was that the display was folded outwards. Instead of a housing made of glass or aluminum, there was a half of the screen on the back.


 The  Mate X stood out clearly from the competition, but was prone to scratches. On the Mate X2, the screen is folded inwards, like on Samsung’s Fold and Z Fold 2.


 The  folding screen is 8 inches and has a resolution of 2,480 x 2,200 pixels. As with Samsung, there is a traditional display on the outside. This means that the X2 can be operated like a conventional smartphone when it is folded. ©

 The  external display measures 6.45 inches and has a resolution of 2,700 x 1,160 pixels.

Like the interior display, the exterior display is also OLED. Both support a frame rate of 90 Hz for a smoother display.

Size and equipment


 The  Mate X2 is quite heavy at 295 grams. When folded, it measures 14.7 millimeters at the thickest point. ©

 The  X2 uses Huawei’s own Kirin 9000 as the processor. ©

 The  main memory is 8 GB, the internal memory 256 or 512 GB. ©

 The  battery has 4,500 mAh.


 The re are 4 cameras on the back: 50 megapixel main camera, 16 megapixel super wide angle, 3x zoom telecamera with 16 megapixels and a 10x zoom telecamera with 8 megapixels. ©

 The  front camera has a resolution of 16 megapixels.


 The  operating system is Android 10, Google apps and the Play Store have to be avoided because of the US trade embargo. Huawei’s own operating system, Harmony OS, is to be rolled out for the X2 from April. This is also based on Android and won’t have any Google apps either.

In China, the X2 will be released on February 25th. With 256 GB of storage, it costs the equivalent of 2,290 euros. ©

 The  512 GB version costs 2,420 euros. It is not known when and whether the X2 will even be offered outside of China.
