Huawei Announces the Mate X2, Their New Flagship Foldable Phone
Huawei has announced the HUAWEI Mate X2, their new Kirin 9000-powered foldable flagship smartphone featuring a new Falcon Wing Design.
The Mate X2 has an 8-inch inner display with a magnetically-controlled nano optical layer to reduce reflections and an outside OLED display with 6.45 inches. Both displays feature a 90Hz refresh rate. The phone has a 21:9 aspect ratio and 2700x1160 resolution for the outer display, and a ratio of 8:7.1 and a 2480x2200 resolution when unfolded.
The phone makes use of a Multi-Dimensional Hinge that “creates a water drop-like cavity for stowing the display” when folded to minimize the outer screen crease. It also has a sloped rear and slightly off-center point of balance to balance the phone in both folded and unfolded forms, as well as hidden openings to prevent dust and dirt entry.
For cameras, the device comes with an Ultra Vision Leica Quad Camera, which features a 50MP Super Sensing Wide Camera with 4-in-1 pixel binning and Full Pixel Octa PD AutoFocus and a 12MP Telephoto Camera with a periscope optics design. The latter features 10 times optical zoom, 20 times hybrid zoom, and 100 times digital zoom. The other cameras are a 16MP Ultra Wide camera with macro mode and 8MP SuperZoom Camera. Aside from the Quad Camera, the phone has a 16MP selfie camera.
Other features of the Mate X2 include a new smart antenna system, a dual-speaker stereo sound system with ultra-thin, large-amplitude drivers with ultra-light carbon fibre domes, and a 4500mAh battery with 55W HUAWEI SuperCharge support.
The Mate X2 will be available in White, Black, Crystal Blue, and Crystal Pink. It will be available from 25 February with a suggested retail price of RMB 17,999 (~RM11,265) for the 256GB version and RMB 18,999 (~RM11,890) for the 512GB version. Both versions have 8GB of RAM.
