Huawei has officially announced that it will launch its next flagship foldable device on February 22, 2021. It is to be called the Mate X2, something also finally confirmed by the OEM via its Weibo channel. Its leaks suggest that it will have more of a Galaxy Fold look to it this time around, albeit with a different camera arrangement.

Huawei has finally set a date for the launch of the Mate X2, its upcoming foldable flagship. Unlike its predecessor, this phablet is rumored to have a form-factor much like that of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold line, something strongly hinted at in its latest poster.

Instead, Huawei is rumored to have left the Mate X2's main display completely clear of any such interruption from edge to edge. Otherwise, it is projected to have a 2480 x 2220 8-inch flexible panel much like that of the Mate Xs, although it will have an improved 120Hz refresh rate and will fold inward rather than outward. This might be just as well, as the X2 is also now projected to have a malleable CPI coating for the same screen, meaning it will still be potentially fragile.

The X2 is also expected to be powered by the Kirin 9000 - which, unfortunately, might mean it will not make it far outside of China due to reduced stock. Its latest leaks also suggest that its rear panel will be graced with quad 50+16+12+8MP rear cameras, whereas its front-facing display will be 6.45 inches in diagonal length and house the device's only selfie solution.

The premium foldable may also support the Mate 40 series' top 66 watt (W) fast-charging rate. It might have a battery of around 4,400mAh in capacity. These details may be confirmed or denied at Huawei's February 22, 2021 event.

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.
