The Mate X2's launch has been anticipated for some time, even with its maker Huawei's trade-war woes. A new post from a Weibo-based leaker assures the public that the device will debut "soon", with the 5nm chipset, design and features one might expect from a 2021 premium foldable phone.

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.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
