Huawei has officially confirmed on its Weibo handle that it will announce the Mate X2, a successor to the Mate XS from last year, on February 22. The teaser gives a sneak peek of the Mate X2's design along with its launch date.
Unlike the Mate X and Mate XS – both of which featured an outward folding design – the Mate X2 will feature an inward folding design, similar to the one seen on the original Samsung Galaxy Fold and the Galaxy Z Fold 2. Huawei is expected to use a new hinge for its inward folding smartphone.
Moreover, going by the official teaser, Huawei seems to have reduced the bezels, which seem to be thinner than that of the older Mate X and Mate XS. Previous rumours point to an 8.01-inch display with a resolution of 2480x2222-pixels on the inside. Furthermore, it is also expected to feature a relatively smaller outer display.
The Huawei Mate X2 is expected to be powered by the 5nm Kirin 9000 5G chipset, and it will feature 66W wired charging. The phone is expected to have a battery capacity of 4,000mAh and will run on Android 10 out-of-the-box.
