The Huawei Mate X series consists of outward-folding premium smartphones. It is rumored to get a new addition in 2020 that may come with a re-done design. A device newly submitted to the Wi-Fi Alliance by the OEM is thought to be this possibly upcoming flagship.

Huawei has had a new device called the TET-NX9 approved by the Wi-Fi Alliance. This model number is rumored to belong to the Mate X2, which (should it in fact exist) would be the OEM's second-gen flagship foldable. It would follow the Mate Xs, a 2019 refresh, onto the market, but may turn out looking much more like the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold2 this time around.

The supposed hinged phablet's model number has also appeared in Huawei's epic Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG) registration from early 2020, on which every high-end device from this brand and its major sub-brand Honor is also found. They include the Mate 40 Pro and (probably) the rest of its upcoming premium series.

Accordingly, we now know that the TET-NX9 is rated for Bluetooth 5.1 and Wi-Fi 6 - which, interestingly, will be facilitated by an in-house chipset called the HiSilicon Hi1105. Its latest certification also shows that it runs EMUI 11 based on Android 10. However, none of these leaks establishes that it is foldable for sure.

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.
