Huawei Consumer Business Group (BG) today announced HUAWEI Mate X2, the new-generation foldable flagship smartphone that unfolds new and exciting experiences with a brand new Falcon Wing Design opening up new possibilities in the realm of mobile technology.
Featuring an all-new compact design with a deliberately shifted point of balance, HUAWEI Mate X2 handles exceptionally whether folded or not. The unfolded display is one of the industry’s largest, offering a consistent user experience across the two forms. Engineered with precision, HUAWEI Mate X2 folds perfectly into a compact form factor, and unfolds beautifully into a flat display . The high-strength steel and carbon fibre composite chassis makes for a light yet robust device. Combining the Ultra Vision Leica Quad Camera, powerful dual-speaker stereo sound system and the blazing fast Kirin 9000 5G chipset, HUAWEI Mate X2 exemplifies some of the best technology the industry has to offer.
HUAWEI Mate X2’s Seamless Foldable Design folds perfectly into a compact shape with smooth corners all around. Unfolded, it has a sloped rear side that allows the device to be as thin as 4.4mm on one end. The point of balance is shifted slightly away from the centre of the device, so it is perfectly balanced whether unfolded or closed.
With its dual-screen design, HUAWEI Mate X2’s flexible inner display measures 8 inches diagonally, one of the largest of its kind. On top of that, HUAWEI Mate X2 also introduces a magnetically-controlled nano-optical layer to minimise reflection. It works seamlessly with the 6.45-inch OLED display on the outside. Both displays have a super high resolution, a high touch sample rate and a refresh rate of 90Hz to offer a consistent experience as users switch from one mode to another.
When folded, HUAWEI Mate X2 is a beautifully engineered smartphone. The outer display’s 21:9 aspect ratio is compatible with most mainstream apps. Unfolded, it transforms into an expansive smart device with the golden aspect ratio of 8:7.1 to offer more immersive and impactful visual experiences whether held vertically or horizontally.
Beneath its minimalist appearance, HUAWEI Mate X2 hides another industry-first innovation: an intricate Multi-Dimensional Hinge that Huawei spent over five years perfecting. Through a multi-dimensional interlocking mechanism, the hinge creates a water drop-like cavity for stowing the display when the device is folded. This allows the device to fold perfectly with a near imperceptible gap, and minimises the crease on the outer screen when the device is unfolded. The openings along the sides are also hidden to prevent dust and dirt from entering the system and potentially damaging the screen.
HUAWEI Mate X2’s large display is complemented by a suite of smart features designed around multi-tasking. With the Smart Multi-Window, Floating Window, App Multiplier, App Bubble and more, users can efficiently multi-task even on a single display.
HUAWEI Mate X2 is equipped with the Ultra Vision Leica Quad Camera to let consumers document and share their lives in crystal clarity, at any time of the day. The 50MP Super Sensing Wide Camera has one of the first sensors to incorporate a RYYB colour filter array (CFA), as well as 4-in-1 pixel binning and Full Pixel Octa PD AutoFocus capabilities for snappy focus and capturing high quality images even in low light scenes. The 10x Telephoto Camera features a periscope optics design, and supports 10 times optical zoom, 20 times hybrid zoom and 100 times digital zoom for long-range photography. The 16MP Ultra Wide Camera not only offers an impressive field of view for scenic shots, but also supports macro mode for shooting objects as close as 2.5cm from the lens.
The unique foldable design of HUAWEI Mate X2 lets users take advantage of the powerful Ultra Vision Leica Quad Camera for self-portraits. With a selfie camera supporting high-res, ultra-wide and high dynamic range capture, selfies will never be the same again.
The dual-speaker stereo sound system uses ultra-thin, large-amplitude drivers with ultra-light carbon fibre domes and supports the Huawei Histen sound effects to deliver deep lows, and clean highs to express even the most delicate details from any source.
Powered by Kirin 9000, the most integrated and versatile 5G system-on-a-chip (SoC) with the most transistors to date, HUAWEI Mate X2 provides excellent performance, power efficiency and high speed connectivity. HUAWEI Mate X2 has a massive 4500mAh battery and supports 55W HUAWEI SuperCharge , the fastest charging solution yet available on foldable devices.
Available in White, Black, Crystal Blue and Crystal Pink, HUAWEI Mate X2 will arrive in stores starting 25 February 2021 for suggested retail prices of RMB 17,999 for the 256GB models and RMB 18,999 for the 512GB models.
