Huawei brought its previous two foldable Mate X smartphones in February, and according to sources, the new Mate X2 will follow suit. One leakster revealed on Weibo the new foldable phone will come “very soon” with improved design, 5nm chipset, and “new impressive technology”.
The Mate X2 will be powered by a 5nm chipset – the Kirin 9000. The phone has already been certified at TENAA with an 8” screen but expectations are the form factor to change – from out-folding to in-folding, similar to the Galaxy Fold series. This will bring a secondary panel on the outside, leaving Royole and its new Flexpai the only foldable smartphone that implements the outward design.
