- Huawei Mate X2 specs have reportedly surfaced online.
- Itâ€™s believed the new foldable will offer an in-folding design.
- The Kirin 9000 processor and a quad rear camera setup could feature too.
The Huawei Mate X and Mate XS showed off a rather different approach to the foldable phone compared to Samsungâ€™s efforts, opting for an out-folding design with the main screen on the outside. Weâ€™ve heard murmurings for a while now that the company could be eyeing Samsungâ€™s in-folding form factor with the Mate X2, and weâ€™ve now heard even more apparent details.
Weibo leaker Digital Chat Station revealed what could be the Mate X2â€™s specs, partially citing a TENAA filing. For starters, it seems like you can expect an 8.01-inch 2,480 Ã— 2,200 in-folding screen, and a 6.45-inch secondary screen (2,700 Ã— 1,160) ostensibly on the front. The foldable seems pretty capable in terms of core specifications too, said to offer a Kirin 9000 processor, a 4,400mAh battery, and 66W charging.Â
The tipster also dished out more apparent details, claiming a 16MP front-facing camera (itâ€™s unclear whether this is on the main screen or secondary display), and a quad rear camera combination (50MP+16MP+12MP+8MP). The Huawei Mate X2 is said to offer 10x zoom support too, although it isnâ€™t known whether this is native or hybrid zoom.
Finally, itâ€™s believed that the new foldable will still be running Android 10, which would be a shame but not surprising given that EMUI 11 is currently based on the older version of Android. Thereâ€™s no guarantee that the new US administration will give Google a green light to deal with Huawei, so donâ€™t hold your breath for Google Mobile Services just yet.
Either way, it seems like the foldable phone segment will be bustling in 2021. Samsung is tipped to offer a cheaper foldable as well as S-Pen support on the Galaxy Z Fold 3, while Xiaomi is said to be working on a foldable with the code-name Cetus.
