Chinese smartphone company, Huawei, announces the release of its newest Huawei foldable Mate X2 on Feb. 22.
Tons of important features about the foldable phone were already released by the company. One thing’s for sure, though, it will be a surprising foldable phone of 2021.
Huawei’s new foldable phone of 2021
A lot of people in the tech industry thought that Huawei is done creating smartphones. That’s why, many were surprised to see the company launching its newest flagship phone, even better a foldable one.
As first seen on Huawei’s official Weibo account, the Chinese brand’s next foldable phone is simply called the Mate X2, and it’ll be unveiled on February 22nd.
Huawei CEO Richard Yu called this device as the foldable smartphone that “will lead the new form of smart phones in the future.”
Compared to other foldable phones, launched by the brand, this Mate X2 phone offers an inward flexible display. This was in comparison to the old versions of Mate Xs and Mate X, which both have outward foldable screen display.
For now, these information are the only available official features that can described the new Huawei Mate X2.
Huawei Mate X2 rumored features
Though the Chinese smartphone company has not yet released any official features of their flagship phone, there are still rumored features—that sounds about right—which we can count on with how Mate X2 probably looks like, how it works, etc.
As for what we can expect from the Huawei Mate X2 in terms of hardware, the recent leaks suggest that the new Huawei Mate X2 will have a 8.01-inch internal display and a 6.45-inch outer panel.
To top it all off, well-known leaker Digital Chat Station, said that the Mate X2 could feature a quad-camera assembly, comprised of a 50MP primary sensor, backed by 16MP, 12MP, and 8MP sensors.
Inside will be a 4,400 mAh battery with 66W fast charging support.
Huawei Mate X2 confirmed with Kirin 9000
Other than the fact that Huawei’s flagship would be a foldable phone, this device will also be powered by the Kirin 9000.
This announcement was no longer a surprising one since Kirin 9000 is the best chip of the brand. What’s surprising is that Huawei still has these products, due to the report that September was the month that it ended its production.
What happens now with Huawei and US government?
If there’s one biggest issue that the Chinese company faced last year was the issue of security, as accused by the US government.
Due to the country’s restrictions and sanctions, its position as the once no. 1 smartphone supplier in the world is now down to 6th place.
According to the latest research released by Counterpoint Research, the company faced a 41% year-on-year decline, putting its market share at 8% for 2020.
Despite the challenges that Huawei faced last year, the company still remains to be positive for this year.
“Huawei has always been committed to innovation and devoted to creating more value for consumers with better products. Over the last year, our smartphone business has developed robustly, and tablet, PC and wearable have seen a significant growth. We remain confident about the future,” the company said in a statement.
