Huawei Mate X2 Review: Improved Folding Technology, Dual OLED Display


Huawei released its first blockbuster terminal product of the year-Huawei Mate X2, and it is also Huawei’s third-generation folding screen mobile phone with a folding design. Huawei Mate X2 has many innovative folding screen technology, top performance configuration and powerful imaging system. The new design also injects its unique soul into Huawei Mate X2. What kind of improvement will it bring us? Let’s take a closer look at this Huawei Mate X2 folding screen flagship phone.


Huawei Mate X2 has four colours of glaze white, bright black, ice crystal blue, and ice crystal powder, and the style tends to be fresh and elegant. The whole adopts a double-wedge-shaped integrated design. The moment you hold it in your hand, whether it is the exquisiteness of the folding and the smooth transition of the fuselage after unfolding, you can clearly experience the solid texture. Although Huawei Mate X2 uses an offset design, it has achieved a new balance in the grip.

As a new generation of folding flagship mobile phone, Huawei Mate X2 has developed an innovative double-rotating water drop hinge after 5 years of technical exploration on hinge manufacturing technology: at the bend, a multi-dimensional phase control linkage mechanism is used to form a screen space to eliminate The gap after folding the screen ensures that the screen is still flat after unfolding.

The hinge system uses a variety of high-precision special materials and special manufacturing processes such as zirconium-based liquid metal, super-strength steel, carbon fibre composite materials, etc., while ensuring lightness and at the same time, it is not easy to deform even when exposed to external shocks. Reliable and durable. The hidden opening and closing design adopted on both sides of the hinge can avoid damage to the screen due to the entry of foreign objects.

Huawei Mate X2 is equipped with two OLED screens inside and outside, of which the external screen is 6.45 inches, which can be used as an ordinary candy bar phone when folded, and an 8-inch super-large screen is obtained when it is unfolded. The display quality is excellent for both the external and internal screens. The pixel density of the internal screen is 413ppi and the external screen is as high as 456ppi.

At the same time, the P3 wide colour gamut is adopted to make the screen colour display more realistic, delicate and natural. The screen refresh rate is 90Hz, the touch sampling rate is 180Hz for the internal screen and 240Hz for the external screen. Whether it is refreshing the page or playing games, the display effect is smoother and the touch interaction is more precise.

Nowadays, people use mobile phones for longer and longer hours. Taking into account the user’s eye health and improving the comfort of watching the screen, Huawei Mate X2 innovatively uses a magnetron nano-optical film, which effectively reduces the reflectance of the screen to less than 1.5%. In reading, video and game scenes, there is no fear of screen reflections, both indoors and outdoors, and the display effect is clearer.


As Huawei’s new generation of folding flagship, Mate X2 cannot be underestimated in terms of performance. It is equipped with the Kirin 9000 processor chip. The power of this flagship chip must be familiar to everyone: it integrates 150 in a very small area. 100 million+ transistors have a 3.13GHz A77 architecture large core, three 2.54GHz A77 architecture cores, and four 2.04GHz A55 architecture small cores. With the support of powerful CPU performance, Kirin 9000 also integrates a 24-core Mali-G78 GPU and a more powerful NPU. The image and AI computing capabilities are also beyond imagination.

Huawei, which has always been at the forefront of the industry in the innovation of mobile phone imaging, will certainly not disappoint everyone this time. Huawei Mate X2 is equipped with a super-sensing Leica four-camera, including a 50-megapixel super-sensing main camera, full of sensor black technology, RYYB colour filter array, four-in-one pixel fusion, and all-pixel eight-core focusing technology. The telephoto camera adopts a periscope optical zoom structure, which can achieve 10x optical zoom, 20x hybrid zoom and 100x digital zoom. The ends of the world can also be brought closer to the eyes with one key. The 16-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera can accommodate a wide view and focus precisely on the subtleties.

Powerful imaging hardware is the best guarantee for the imaging of Huawei Mate X2. We also tested the performance of Mate X2 for the first time. Needless to say, the daily scenes during the day are not difficult at all, so we mainly tested the shooting ability of Huawei Mate X2 at night and indoors. This brings you proofs.


The powerful performance is not supported by the battery, and the lack of battery life will also affect the user experience. Huawei Mate X2 puts a large 4500mAh battery in the phone and uses 55W Huawei super-fast charging to free users from battery anxiety.

Of course, the data may not give people an intuitive feeling, so we carried out the game measurement as soon as we got the Mate X2. The national mobile game King Glory is set to the top quality, and the high frame rate is turned on, the whole process is 60 frames It was as smooth as silk, and it was almost impossible to feel the fuselage heating after several rounds. With the stable and efficient performance of Huawei Mate X2, expand the 8-inch screen to enjoy and play to create an extraordinary gaming experience.

As a flagship phone with a folding screen with two screens, Mate X2’s powerful hardware is more burdensome than ordinary phones, but it is still very good in terms of user experience. Regardless of the internal and external screens, sliding the page left and right in the system, opening and closing applications, or calling out to exit multitasking, the silky and smooth sense of manipulation is always maintained.

Next, we have stepped up the test of the performance of Mate X2. By opening multiple applications in split-screen mode, we can make full use of the 8-inch large internal screen of Huawei Mate X2. What about the performance of the Huawei Mate X2 split-screen? Huawei Mate X2 On the basis of split-screen, it is further upgraded to a more comprehensive “smart multi-window”. Including preview floating window, single application multi-tasking, drag-and-drop sharing, floating storage, there are many design ingenuities, allowing users to make full use of the Mate X2 8-inch large screen.

Among them, the preview floating window can achieve direct access to other applications without closing the main task, such as opening attachments or website links in emails and memos. You can also double open a single application, such as double open WPS to compare documents, improve work efficiency. Changing Message can quickly share photos, text, links and other files by dragging and dropping, and it breaks through the limitations of file size, quantity, and form. In order to make the window display less cluttered and more convenient to switch applications, you can use the floating window to fine-tune the size of the window, and you can also minimize the temporarily unused application to a floating ball to improve multitasking switching experience.

After experiencing it for a period of time, even if the Huawei Mate X2 is split-screen and opened more applications, the fluency is not reduced at all, and the heat is almost imperceptible. It seems that the powerful performance of Huawei Mate X2 with the support of the Kirin 9000 processor chip is still capable of dealing with complex task scenarios.
