Huawei presents the new folding smartphone Mate X2


 The  Mate X2 is the next generation of the foldable – but only in China for the time being. At the presentation, Huawei gave insights into the strategy on the smartphone market.

Huawei is countering the rumors about the exit from the business with high-end smartphones with its new folding device Mate X2, which, however, is only to be released in the domestic market of China for the time being. ©

 The  prices, which start at the equivalent of just under 2,300 euros, are a confident announcement.

At the presentation of the Mate X2, the head of Huawei’s consumer division, Richard Yu, admitted that the US sanctions are currently particularly hard on the supply of components for smartphones, but that there are enough stocks to ensure that the Guarantee end customers with the new model. Further folding devices in various form factors are also being developed.

Mate X2 probably not available in Germany for the time being

Some will find it a shame that the Mate X2 will not come to Germany for the time being, because technically it seems to set standards: For example, it has an 8-inch OLED display when it is unfolded and now also a 6.5-inch outside screen 21: 9 format. In contrast to the first Mate X, the main screen folds inwards and not outwards. ©

 The  mechanism of the hinge has been optimized so that the halves lie on top of one another without any gaps.


 The  in-house Kirin 9000 is used as the chipset, and there are also four cameras on the back that were developed with Leica support and enable a triple optical zoom. ©

 The  operating system with the EMUI-11 surface is still based on a license-free version of Android 10. Yu explained that practically all popular apps in China now support the functions of the folding screen.

As far as the operating system is concerned, there seems to be at least a solution on the horizon, as Yu announced that it would initially provide its own HarmonyOS for the more expensive smartphones – including the Mate X2 – in April.
