The successor to the Mate Xs has reared its head again, this time at the TENAA. Two models have been certified with the TENAA, both with dual-SIM connectivity and 66 W fast-charging. The Mate X2 has been listed as a 5G device too, suggesting that it will have Huawei's Kirin 9000 chipset.

Huawei has certified the Mate X2 with the TENAA in China. Specifically, the Chinese company has approved the TET-AN00 and TET-AN10, which appear to be two SKUs of the same device. Details about the Mate X2 remain sparse, but the TENAA offers a few nuggets of information about the upcoming foldable smartphone.

On the one hand, the TENAA confirms that the Mate X2 will launch with Android. This means that Huawei will release the device on EMUI 11, rather than HarmonyOS. The Mate X2 will also support up to 66 W fast charging, as we previously reported. Both models will support dual-SIM connectivity, too.

Moreover, the Mate X2 will be a 5G device. Huawei cannot currently source 5G chipsets from Qualcomm, so we suspect the Mate X2 to arrive with the Kirin 9000, along with the forthcoming P50 series.

The TENAA does not describe any other elements of the Mate X2, nor does it offer any pictures of the device. However, Huawei is expected to equip it with an 8.03-inch and 120 Hz display. The Mate X2 should arrive in early 2021.
