Huawei’s new foldable flagship phone, the Mate X2, will be unveiled at 8pm tonight. More than 2.3 million people have made reservations for the new phone, according to official mall data.
In terms of specs, the Huawei Mate X2 has been confirmed to be equipped with the Kirin 9000 processor, rear camera module or a 50 megapixel IMX700 main camera + 16 megapixel ultra-wide Angle lens + 12 megapixel submersive telephoto lens + 8 megapixel auxiliary camera, supporting 10x hybrid optical zoom.
In terms of the screen that has received the most attention, the biggest change in the new Mate X2 is the folding way, instead of the outer folding scheme of the previous two generations, it will fold inside.
The Mate X2 will use innovative materials, including a complex hinge design, which is a big change from Huawei’s Mate XS’s eagle wing hinge. Huawei recently released a patent for a foldable terminal device that can effectively reduce the crease problem of a foldable screen.

Huawei consumer business CEO Richard Yu previously released a micro blog to warm up the product, saying, “It is no exaggeration to say that Huawei Mate XS is still the best folding-screen phone experience on the market, but there is no end to progress, we still have to continue to break through ourselves, and constantly optimize the core experience of the product. This time, we ‘stretch’ our imagination and bring you a flagship foldable phone that will lead to a new form of smart phones in the future.”
