Almost two years ago, Huawei unveiled its folding device Mate X, finally released at the end of 2019. We finally have concrete news from its successor.

Huawei was one of the first manufacturers to introduce a foldable-screen mobile device, the Mate X, in tablet form when unfolded and as compact as a smartphone when folded. However, the Chinese manufacturer has been very discreet in the matter since, letting Samsung pull the cover on it in terms of folding smartphones. Finally, a Mate X2 could be on the way.

A screen worthy of a tablet

The Huawei Mate X2 had already been spotted last November on the site of the TENAA, a certification body. But nothing in the technical sheet was then detailed. Today, the famous Chinese leaker Digital Chat Station gives us a good overview of the device specifications.

This would be equipped with a large foldable 8.01-inch screen with a definition of 2,480 x 2,200 pixels. A second panel, on the outside, would measure 6.45 inches for an image quality of 2700 x 1160 pixels.

The dimensions of the smartphone would be as follows: 161.8 x 145.8 x 8.2 mm, all for a weight of 295 grams, logically heavier than traditional smartphones.

Powerful optical zoom

The folding smartphone convertible into a tablet (or the tablet convertible into a smartphone) would embed a Kirin 9000 SoC and would run, strangely, under Android 10, even though Android 11 is already well installed in our mobiles. No HarmonyOS here, either, maybe just because the software isn’t ready to support these kind of foldable screens.

The leak also evokes a quadruple photo sensor with 50 Mp, 16 Mp, 12 Mp and 8 Mp modules. A 10x optical zoom would be there. It is not known how the 16 MP selfie camera will be integrated.

The autonomy, finally, would be entrusted to a battery of 4,400 mAh supporting a fast recharge of 66W.
