The Huawei Mate X2 visits the TENAA - Kirin 9000 chipset likely in line for 5G foldable smartphone
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.
