Huawei’s Mate X2 foldable phone is set to be released on February 22. According to the official teaser poster, the Mate X2 will be rumored to have a book-style folding inside and outside design, with a reference to the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 for details.
Although Samsung was previously reported to have started supplying foldable screens to Chinese manufacturers, it doesn’t seem like the Mate X2 is a beneficiary customer.
Ross Young, founder of screen analytics firm DSCC, revealed during a chat with fans on the social media platform that Huawei’s Mate X2 did have two major suppliers, Samsung and JD.com, during its development stage, but now it’s only BOE.
The specific reasons are unclear, such as cost, effectiveness or availability.
The Huawei Mate X2 will be equipped with a 5nm Kirin 9000 chip, which will have an 8.01-inch folding main screen with a resolution of 2480×2200, and a 6.45-inch secondary screen with a resolution of 2700×1160.
It’s important to note that while the screen is important to a foldable phone, it’s also important to note that the entire logic of the system’s interaction goes beyond the hardware to some extent. Given the Mate X/ XS experience and market experience, Huawei should deliver a better answer.
