Huawei will launch the Mate X2 soon, according to a new leak
It's been nearly a year since Huawei launched its Mate Xs premium foldable phablet; therefore, it's getting odd that there has not even been 1 official teaser for its rumored successor. This device, thought to be called the X2, has reportedly been certified with the Chinese regulator TENAA, which usually means a launch is immediately in the offing. However, that was in November 2020, yet there is still no new flexible-display device out there.
Nevertheless, a leaker whose Weibo username translates as Courage Digital King has just sparked Mate X2 rumors off again with a new post insisting it is indeed on its way. It will apparently have a new 5nm processor (widely assumed to be the Kirin 9000) and will launch stuffed with "dazzling technologies". They are currently thought to include the 66W fast charging also seen in the Mate 40 flagship smartphones and a new 8.01-inch main display.
The Mate X2 will also apparently switch to an inward-folding design, which would be a polar opposite to that of the Xs. Nevertheless, its latest leak asserts that it will avoid becoming a complete Samsung Galaxy Z Fold clone in some way that is yet to be revealed. This may make Huawei's apparently upcoming press conference on the subject of its doubtless premium-priced foldable all the more interesting.
