Huawei is finally about to start selling its first folding smartphone, the Mate X, and it’s more than obvious that the company should introduce a new generation or similar variant of the similarly shaped handset – from a flexible display instead. flexible internal and external fixed another of the Galaxy Fold – very soon.
A new patent filed by Huawei from the Dutch website LetsGoDigital reveals that not only can the Chinese manufacturer be working on a Mate X successor which can make it even better for productivity by adding a stylus similar to what we saw on the Galaxy Note line.
As you can see in the image below, the patent shows a Mate X-shaped folding: the body with a protruding part on the back and the screen that folds on the left side until it attaches to the back cover by magnets.
Unlike the current model with USB Type-C connector located at the bottom of the thickest region of the smartphone, this new Mate X variant would change the position of the USB Type-C to implement the pen, so that the stylus is stored in a specific compartment.
This should force Huawei to modify internal components as the pen will take up much of the space and the company still needs to maintain components such as the main quad cameras in this same region.
Still, there is no guarantee that a supposed Mate X 2 is being manufactured by Huawei, but the patent registration on Thursday 26 September reinforces that the company has at least plans for a new variant.
