Since the concept of full screen was put forward, major smartphone manufacturers have begun to step up their efforts to seek new breakthroughs in screen form. Folding screen technology is a new goal pursued by many manufacturers in recent years. Among them, we should mention Samsung, Huawei, and others. They are constantly working hard to iterate their new folding screen phones. Following the recent launch of Samsung’s second-generation folding screen smartphone Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2, Huawei’s second-generation folding screen smartphone Mate X2 has also begun to receive a lot of exposure. Some media have already created realistic-looking renders of this handset. Let’s take a look at one of them.
As HuaweiCentral reported, the new Huawei Mate X2 folding screen smartphone will come with an 8-inch foldable display. And it will abandon the previous outward folding screen design. The phone will use a book-style inner folding flexible screen solution. However, it still retains the center column design on the previous Mate X/Xs. It’s there to carry camera sensors and other components. There is a special small screen under the center column to display various information such as time and notifications.
Will The US Ban Affect Huawei Mate X2’s Launch?
In other aspects, according to previous news, the new Huawei Mate X2 will use the same 8-inch foldable display as the Mate X and Xs. Also, it should support laptop mode as well as split-screen functions. This should allow users to write on the top, using a keyboard at the bottom. As for the hardware, since the new Kirin 9000 series chip was cut off by TSMC due to the US ban, it will be a big question whether it can have stocks for the Huawei Mate X2. In addition, the camera of the machine will be upgraded to a front dual camera and a rear quad camera module.
Yu Chengdong has said that the new Huawei Mate 40 series is scheduled to be released in September. According to past practices, the new generation of the Huawei Mate X2 folding screen phones will also be expected to appear on the same stage. But this may change this year. The reason is naturally because Huawei has suffered this year. There are too many ‘natural disasters’ and ‘man-made disasters’ in China. So the Huawei Mate 40 series, which is undoubtedly the most important project, must occupy more energy than before. In this regard, the Huawei Mate X2 is likely to be pushed back.
