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 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.
