Huawei officially announced a 2nd generation foldable smartphone. The Huawei Mate X2, which has a similar structure to the Samsung Galaxy Fold 2 in terms of design features, can strengthen the company’s presence in the foldable smartphone field.
Having made an assertive entry into the foldable smartphone market with the Huawei Mate X, but then left the market to Samsung in a great silence, Huawei announced the second generation foldable smartphone Mate X2. Moreover, the new Huawei Mate X2 promises a much more functional foldable smartphone experience in many ways.
The most important feature of Huawei Mate X2 is its foldable screen. This innovative screen with OLED panel has a size of 8 inches, 90 Hz refresh rate and a resolution of 2480 x 2200 pixels. The Mate X2 has a weird screen aspect ratio of 8: 7.1, so it offers a display size well under 8 inches when watching videos in 16: 9 format.
Huawei, which designs its first generation foldable smartphone in a foldable structure, has preferred a design with a second screen outside, which can be folded in similar to Samsung in the Mate X2. This allows users to use a 6.45-inch secondary display with a resolution of 2700 x 1160 pixels and a refresh rate of 90 Hz while the Mate X2 is folded.
The Huawei Mate X2, powered by the HiSilicon Kirin 9000 processor, which is also included in the flagship Mate 40 series, offers 8 GB of RAM and up to 512 GB of internal storage. Perhaps one of the most important minus points about the Mate X2 is that it still comes out of the box with EMUI 11 built on the Android 10 operating system.
New gen phones
Under normal conditions, foldable smartphones are not very assertive in terms of cameras, but Mate X2 will offer the best camera performance among foldable smartphones with 50 MP Ultra Vision main camera, 16 MP ultra wide angle camera, 12 MP 3x telephoto camera and 8 MP 10x SuperZoom camera. In addition, let’s say that the second screen of the device also has a 16 MP selfie camera.
Another controversial feature of the Huawei Mate X2 is its 4,500 mAh battery. It is difficult to predict how much a 4,500 mAh battery will be enough for a smartphone with an 8-inch screen, but Huawei has also included 55W fast charging in the device to prevent charging from being a problem.
Since the Huawei Mate X2 has a huge 8-inch screen, the multitasking features of the device are highly curious. According to the explanations, Intelligent Multi Window Mode makes it possible to run more than one application at the same time. In addition, thanks to the multiple video mode, 4 videos can be played simultaneously.
