Huawei is preparing to announce a new flagship foldable phone later this month, according to a Weibo post on the company’s official page. Based on the name, the Mate X2 will be a more substantial follow-up to the original Mate X than Huawei’s last foldable phone.
The teaser image for the Mate X2 actually suggests that the phone could possibly switch to a different folding screen design with the flexible panel on the inside, like Samsung’s Galaxy Z Fold line.
Previous reports point to the diagonal screen size of 8.01” with a resolution of 2480×2222 and since the phone will fold inwards like the Galaxy Z Fold 2, it will feature a 6.45” external display as well. It will reportedly support a 90Hz refresh rate on these displays, supplied by Samsung and BOE.
The Mate X2 will be powered by the 5nm Kirin 9000 5G chipset and will reportedly support Android 10, 66W charging, and a battery rated at 4,400 mAh.
