(Pocket Ribbon) – Huawei's Mate X2 is a new generation of foldable from the company that turns the older Mate X upside down – or rather, inside out.
While the Mate X (and revised Xs version) had the foldable display on the outside, the Mate X2 folds its 8-inch, 2,480 x 2,200 pixel display (413ppi, 8: 7.1 aspect ratio) inward (like Samsung's Galaxy Fold series ) but also has a full-size 6.45-inch OLED 21: 9 display plus two cut-out cameras on the front of the phone when folded.
That means it can function more like a standard smartphone when closed than other foldable models we've seen on their front screens before. A newly designed nano-optical layer minimizes reflections.
Each half of the screen has a wedge shape, which means that the two halves can be folded together thanks to a multi-dimensional hinge that Huawei says it has been working on for five years. The hinge is pretty smart and creates a water drop shaped cavity to hold the screen in when the phone is folded, which means there is virtually no gap when closed.

When unfolded, the screen is 4.4mm thick at its thinnest point, although notably, we don't yet have any information about the phone's overall thickness when closed.
The phone is, as you'd expect, a 5G model built on top of Huawei's proprietary 5nm Kirin 9000 platform. There is a 2100 mAh battery and a quad camera on the back – with Leica technology as usual. The array includes a 50 megapixel wide-angle lens, 10x telephoto, and a 16-megapixel ultra-wide.
A very interesting detail is that the Mate X2 can install Huawei's proprietary Harmony operating system instead of the company's usual EMUI interface running on top of Android. Huawei says it has worked hard to improve the multitasking features in EMUI for the new device, including new transition effects.
The Huawei Mate X2 will initially be available in 256 and 512 GB versions in China and will cost RMB 17,999 or 18,999, starting at the equivalent of $ 2,785 or £ 1,985.
