Huawei has filed a new patent in EUIPO, the latest patent shows a unique layout. Huawei is expected to launch a revised version of the original Mate X folding phone during Mobile World Congress 2020. It’s currently known as the Huawei Mate Xs and isn’t the Mate X2. The Mate Xs are likely to be very similar to the first Mate X on the outside, but with the new Kirin 990 processor inside, an improved hinge, and a tougher folding display.
Unlike the Mate X, a patent filed by Huawei shows what could be the Mate X2 with a screen that folds inward, like the Samsung Galaxy Fold. However, the design will allow for a sidebar down one edge, which makes the phone easier to hold with one hand, something we noted about the current Mate X. This bar has a display on one side, which could be used to show notifications. There doesn’t seem to be any other outer display.
The Huawei Mate X2 may be one of the first phones to use a new Huawei Kirin processor, which traditionally arrives at the IFA technology show held in Berlin every September. This chip would succeed the current Kirin 990 processor. The device having a 5G connection seems almost certain. Otherwise, there are no rumors yet about the Mate X2’s specification.
