Huawei will be launching the company’s next-generation Mate X2 foldable smartphone tomorrow. Ahead of its unveiling, the highly anticipated device had already eclipsed more than 2 million registrations on Vmall and more than 1.5 million registrations on JD.com.
Unlike the current Mate X and Mate Xs, the upcoming Mate X2 is expected to feature an inward folding design instead of the outward folding design we saw from its predecessors. The adoption of an inward folding design also raise the possibility that the device could support wireless charging this time round.
According to earlier reports, the Mate X2 is expected to boast an 8.01-inches internal display with 2480 x 2220 pixels screen resolution. Its secondary display at the front (when the phone is folded in) is said to measure 6.45-inches and has a screen resolution of 2700 x 1160 pixels.
In the camera department, the Huawei Mate X2 relies on a versatile 50 megapixels + 16 megapixels + 12 megapixels + 8 megapixels quad-camera setup at the back. This will be accompanied by a 16 megapixels selfie camera upfront.
Under the hood, it’s powered by the latest Kirin 9000 chipset which is also found in the newly announced Huawei Mate 40 Pro (Review) flagship. It will be fitted with a respectable 4,400mAh battery with 66W Huawei SuperCharge fast-charging support.
