Over the past few years, there has been a massive development of foldable smartphones. Most of the initial obstacles facing this luxury smartphone have been defeated. However, there is still a lot of work to do to get it to perfection. Top manufacturers like Samsung, Huawei, and Motorola have continued to make efforts in the foldable smartphone market. Presently, there are a variety of foldable smartphones in the market.
According to popular Weibo leakster, @DCS, Huawei is currently working on a new flagship foldable smartphone. Furthermore, his report claims that this device is oriented towards female folks. This device uses a “vertical fold up and down” inward folding scheme, more like a flip phone. However, the leakster is not sure as to when this device will officially arrive on the market.
According to previous reports, the Chinese manufacturer will release the Huawei Mate V later this year. The Mate V has a vertical inward folding scheme and it is also up and down folding. The engineering model of the Mate V shows that it uses the Kirin 9000 SoC. It appears that the device discussed by @DCS is the same as the Mate V.
Huawei’s latest foldable smartphone – Mate X2
In February this year, Huawei released a new generation flagship foldable smartphone – Huawei Mate X2. In terms of ID design, Huawei Mate X2 pioneers a dual-wedge design and a center-of-gravity offset design to create a new balance with asymmetry. At the same time, the new phone also uses the industry’s unique dual-rotating drop hinge.
This smartphone adopts an internal and external dual-screen design, both supporting a high refresh rate of 90Hz. The internal display is an 8-inch screen with an ultra-high-resolution of 2480 × 2200. However, the external screen size is a 6.45 inches display with a resolution of 2700 × 1160. The external display also supports a 240Hz touch sampling rate.
As for the core configuration, Huawei Mate X2 uses the Kirin 9000 5G SoC. This is the latest flagship processor from the company before the U.S. ban hit Huawei. Under the hood, this foldable smartphone has a built-in 4500 mAh large-capacity battery that supports 55W Huawei super fast charge. In the camera department, the Huawei Mate X2 comes with a quad rear Leica camera setup. It has a 50MP main camera as well as an 8MP periscope, 16MP ultra-wide-angle, and 12MP telephoto lenses.
At present, there are no specific parameters for the new Huawei foldable smartphone. Also, whether or not it supports 5G remains to be seen.
