Huawei is set to announce the Mate 40 Series on October 22 and those are the company’s high-end Mate series phones. According to the latest render courtesy LetsGoDigital, Huawei is working on a completely redesigned foldable smartphone named the Mate X2.
Despite the US trade ban, Huawei is still developing its new smart product within the duration and launching as per the user’s demand. For now, the next foldable smartphone from the company dint received a launch date or any news. But according to the popular leakers all over the world suggested that the next foldable smartphone to be called Huawei Mate X2 (code name ‘Teton’) and it is under development.
Unlike Huawei’s two previous foldable models – the Mate X and Mate Xs – the new model appears to fold inward. The flexible screen folds inwards and an extra cover display is placed on the outside – handy when you fold the phone want to use.
To better visualize this special folding phone, the Dutch 3D graphic designer Jermaine Smit, aka Concept Creator, made a series of product renders based on the patent. Naturally, Jermaine has also made a high-profile video animation in which the alleged Huawei Mate X2 can be seen from all sides.
The cover screen is new, this display is functional when you use the phone in the folded position. Some believe that the Mate X2’s cover screen only grows to a size of 4.5 inches. However, the Fold’s 4.6 ″ cover display was perceived as too small by many users.
The cover screen is equipped with a dual selfie camera. We also see this double hole-punch camera in the Huawei P40 series launched earlier this year and will most likely also be used in the Mate 40 series expected later this month.
The rear camera setup is very similar to that of the P40 Pro Plus – although the telephoto camera has been moved up this time. The thickness of the device is also special. At the top – where the camera system is located – the smartphone is designed significantly thicker than at the bottom.
The new Huawei Mate foldable smartphone will get an 8.03-inch inward-folding screen with a 2480 x 2220 resolution. The Mate X2 will also be equipped with a 120Hz flexible display. This high refresh rate contributes to a better scrolling experience.
Last month, a still unknown Huawei smartphone with model number TET-NX9 passed the WiFi 6 inspection, after which the corresponding certificate was issued. It is speculated online that this type number belongs to the expected Mate X2. It also became clear from the certification document that the smartphone will run on the EMUI 11 OS, which is based on Android 10.
The new Mate foldable phone will be powered by a Kirin 9000 series processor. Meanwhile, it is possible that Huawei’s new foldable phone will be announced around February 2021 – exactly two years after the introduction of the Mate X.
