A few days ago, a Weibo user claimed that Huawei would host a press conference later this month. He mentioned that the firm would likely announce its next foldable handset at the event.
Yesterday, the company took to the online blogging platform to confirm the launch of the Huawei Mate X2. Huawei revealed that the phone would debut on February 22.
However, the speculation remain unconfirmed as Huawei is yet to release any of the phone’s details.
Meanwhile, the brand released a launch poster for the Mate X2 already. And it suggests that the handset will debut with an inward folding design.
Speculations say the overall design of the Huawei Mate X2 is somewhat similar to the Galaxy Z Fold 2.
The Huawei Mate X2 may arrive with an 8.01-inch foldable display. Claims have it that the screen delivers a resolution of 2480 x 2220 pixels.
The front side would sport a 6.45-inch panel that supports a resolution of 2270 x 1160 pixels.
Under the hood, the powerful Kirin 9000 5nm chipset would likely oversee the operations of the handset.
For lenses, the Mate X2 could sport a 16-megapixel front-facing sensor and a rear quad-camera system.
The rear camera unit comprises a 50-megapixel primary lens, a 16-megapixel snapper, a 12-megapixel sensor, and an 8-megapixel camera.
The configurations of the rear cameras are not confirmed. However, rumours say that the Huawei Mate X2 may come with support for 10x hybrid zoom.
The phone will ship with Android 10 OS. And it would likely draw power from a 4,400mAh battery that supports 66W rapid charging.
