HUAWEI has launched its third foldable smartphone after the HUAWEI Mate X and Mate Xs. Instead of folding outwards like the Mate X or Xs, the Mate X2 is now folding inwards similar to the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2.
The HUAWEI Mate X2 is the World’s First 5nm powered processor foldable smartphone featuring the HUAWEI Kirin 9000 5G which found on the HUAWEI Mate40-series. It features a foldable 8-inch 2.5K 2,480 x 2,200 resolution main OLED display. As for the outer display is a 6.45-inch FHD+ OLED display panel. Both of the displays feature a 90Hz refresh rate.
Coming to the camera, there’s no front camera on the main display instead, the video call will only rely on the outer secondary display’s 16-megapixels hole-punch camera. The rear camera setup is pretty similar to the HUAWEI Mate40 Pro that I reviewed earlier. It equipped with a 50-megapixels f/1.9 aperture with OIS main camera, a 16-megapixels CineCamera ultrawide angle at f/2.2 aperture, a 12-megapixels f/2.4, 3x optical zoom with OIS and an 8-megapixels 10x optical zoom that capable with 100x digital zoom.
The HUAWEI Mate X2 is packed with 4,500 mAh battery and supports 55W wired HUAWEI SuperCharge. It will be running on EMUI 11 based on Android 10 and it’s also the first device to supports HarmonyOS 2.0 which expected to roll out somewhere in April 2021.
It carrying quite a hefty price tag which are RMB 17,999 (~RM 11,264) and RMB 18,999 (~RM 11,990) for 8GB + 26GB and 8GB + 512GB variants respectively. The HUAWEI Mate X2 is only available in China market only at the moment, no words it will be available out of China anytime soon.
