Huawei has officially announced its newest foldable smartphone Mate X2 in China. It is the company's third attempt in the foldable market after the release of Mate X and Mate Xs and 2019 and 2020 respectively. The latest offering comes with a number of improvements including drastic changes to the folding mechanism. And as you might have guessed, the phone does not run Google apps and services out of the box.
The Mate X2 is the first Huawei foldable smartphone with an inward folding design as both of its previous launches come with an outward folding approach. In other words, the newest launch folds the same as the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 where the main display is on the inside when folded. It sports an 8-inch OLED internal display with 2480 x 2200 pixels resolution, 90Hz refresh rate, and 180Hz touch sampling rate. The external display is a 6.45-inches OLED panel with 2700 x 1160 pixels resolution, 90Hz refresh rate, and 240Hz touch sampling rate.
Under the hood, the foldable features the new HiSilicon Kirin 9000 processor with a 24-core Mali-G78 GPU. It is a 5G capable processor that debuted with the Mate 40 Pro last year. There are two configuration options: 8GB of RAM with 256GB onboard storage and 8GB of RAM with 512GB onboard storage.
