Since the introduction of the full screen concept, major smartphone makers have stepped up their efforts to seek new discoveries in screen format. Screen folding technology is a new goal that many manufacturers have been pursuing in recent years. Among them, we must mention Samsung, Huawei and others. They are constantly working hard to replicate their new foldable screen phones. Following the recent release of the dual generation smartphone Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2, the dual generation smartphone Huawei Mate X2 has also started to receive a lot of exposure. Some media have already created realistic performances of this handset. Let’s take a look at one of them.
As HuaweiCentral reported that, the new smartphone with folding screen Huawei Mate X2 will have an folding screen of 8 inches. And it will abandon the previous design of an external folding screen. The phone will use a flexible book-style internal folding solution. However, it retains the central column design on previous Mate X / Xs. It is there to carry camera sensors and other components. There is a special small screen below the main column to display various information such as time and notifications.
Will the US ban affect the release of the Huawei Mate X2?
In other respects, according to previous news, the new Huawei Mate X2 will use the same 8-inch foldable screen as the Mate X and Xs. It should also support laptop operation as well as split-screen functions. This will allow users to type at the top using a keyboard at the bottom. In terms of hardware, since the new Kirin 9000 chip was discontinued by TSMC due to the US ban, it will be a big question if it can have stock for the Huawei Mate X2. In addition, the camera of the machine will be upgraded to a front dual camera and a rear quad-camera unit.
Yu Chengdong said that the new Huawei Mate 40 series will be released in September. In line with previous practices, the new generation of Huawei Mate X2 foldable phones is also expected to appear in the same scene. But that may change this year. The reason is of course because Huawei has suffered this year. There are too many “natural disasters” and “man-made disasters” in China. Thus, the Huawei Mate 40 series, which is undoubtedly the most important project, must take up more energy than before. In this regard, the Huawei Mate X2 is likely to be pushed back.
