After launching the Huawei Mate X2 foldable phone back in February this year, Huawei is now back with a deluxe variant known as the Huawei Mate X2 Collector’s Edition in the Chinese market, where the phone commands a hefty launch price of 19,699 Yuan (US$3,088).
Unlike the existing model that features a glass back, the Huawei Mate X2 Collector’s Edition comes with a premium leather back which gives off an even more luxurious outlook. Additionally, it’s memory configuration is also upgraded to 12GB+512GB, and will ship with the latest HarmonyOS 2.0 out of the box.
In terms of specs, the Huawei Mate X2 features an external 6.45-inches OLED display which offers an impressive 2,700 x 1,160 pixels screen resolution, as well as a smooth 90Hz screen refresh rate and 240Hz touch sampling rate.
When unfolded, the inner screen measures 8-inches diagonally and boasts a 2,480 x 2,200 pixels screen resolution. While the inner display retains the same 90Hz screen refresh rate, its touch sampling rate settles at a slightly lower 180Hz touch sampling rate.
Over at the back, the Huawei Mate X2 sports a powerful quad-camera system lead by a powerful 50MP RYYB main camera with OIS stabilization and support for 4K video recording.
Moving on, there’s also an 8 megapixels periscope camera with 10x optical zoom and OIS stabilization, as well as a 12 megapixels telephoto camera with 3x optical zoom and OIS stabilization. Overall, the device is able to achieve up to 20x hybrid zoom and 100x digital zoom.
The forth camera will be a 16 megapixels ultra-wide module which also doubles as a macro camera for highly-detailed close up shots. Finally, the secondary display (on the outside) also has a 16 megapixels shooter for selfie and video-calling purposes.
At the helm, the Huawei Mate X2 is powered by the flagship HiSilicon Kirin 9000 chipset which is also found in the Mate 40 Pro (review). Keeping its lights on is none other than a respectable 4,500mAh battery with 55W fast-charging support.
