The Huawei Mate Xs hit the market last year, and this year Huawei will launch a new foldable-screen smartphone called the Huawei Mate X2.
Recently, a smartphone with model number Huawei TET-AN10 has been certified by the TENAA regulator in China. Sources are confident that the Huawei Mate X2 is hiding under this model number. TENAA confirms that the phone has two screens, including an 8.01″ foldable main display and an external 6.56″ display.
The 8.01-inch main display has a resolution of 2480 x 2200 pixels, it will fold inside the case (like the Galaxy Fold), while the outside will have a secondary display with a resolution of 2700 x 1160 pixels. These displays are manufactured by Samsung and BOE.
The phone has a battery with a capacity of 4400 mAh, the dimensions of the smartphone are 161.8 x 145.8 x 8.2 mm. The phone will support 66W fast charging.
The smartphone will arrive with the 5-nanometer Kirin 9000 SoC, Bluetooth 5.1, Wi-Fi 6 and will run EMUI 11.
Huawei Mate X2 Delayed For Unknown Reasons, But The Project Still Runs On
In October last year, Huawei released the flagship Mate 40 series smartphones. So taking into consideration the previous practice, the next models should belong to the Mate Xs folding screen line. However, it seems that the update of folding screen phones will take longer.
Recently, a well-known blogger @RODENT950 pointed out that Huawei’s new generation of folding screen flagship Mate X2 will be postponed.
According to the blogger, the release of a number of Huawei products should be postponed; including the folding screen flagship Huawei Mate X2. If you are not informed, it was originally scheduled to be released earlier this month.
We know that Huawei has successively launched two folding screen smartphones, Mate X/Xs. So if nothing accidental happens, the next generation of the Huawei Mate X2 should be launched in 2020. But as Ross Young stated the Huawei Mate X2 could not be listed in 2020 due to the US ban and will be postponed to this year.
Previously, Huawei had a number of new phones appeared in the website of Ministry of Industry and Information Technology. Among them, the model TET-AN00/TET-AN10 should correspond to the Huawei Mate X2 series. Unfortunately, the photo and main configuration information have not been announced.
However, there are rumors that the Mate X2 will come with the Kirin 9000 processor and support 66-watt super fast charging. If so, then it turns out the main reason for reason is the situation around the Kirin 9000 processors. As you know, this processor uses components imported from the US. And after September 15, it couldn’t get anything from there. So the ‘accumulated’ Kirin 9000 processors are used only in those models that are on the market now. They are the Huawei Mate 40 Pro series handsets.
At last, though there is no official photo yet, some media (mainly LetsGoDigital) have produced a real machine rendering of the Mate X2. The biggest change of the machine is that it switches from the original outward folding to the same internal folding design as the Samsung Galaxy Fold.
