Huawei to launch new foldable phone in February

by Samuel Agozie

Huawei is about to launch its third foldable smartphone. 

The company announced on its Weibo account (via Android Central) that the Huawei Mate X2 will launch on Feb. 22 at an event in China. 

No further details about the device were shared, though a teaser image implies the phone will have a seamless display, without the visible crease that plagues some other foldable models.

It also looks as though the new phone will have an inward-folding design, similar to Samsung’s Galaxy Z Fold 2, and the opposite of its predecessor, the Mate XS, which folds outwards. 

Android Central has a few more details on rumored specs, which include an 8.01-inch main display, a 6.45-inch secondary display, and Huawei’s Kirin 9000 chipset. It’ll come with a quad camera with a 50-megapixel main sensor, a 16-megapixel selfie camera, a 4,400mAh battery, and fast charging. 

The issue with Huawei phones these days is that they don’t come with Android or Google apps due to the U.S. trade ban, which makes them barely usable for people outside of China. The Mate X2 likely won’t be available in the U.S., which is a pity, as it’s bound to be an interesting device.
