Huawei unveils the HUAWEI Mate X2, its foldable flagship smartphone with a Kirin 9000 5G chipset


Huawei has announced HUAWEI Mate X2, the new-generation foldable flagship smartphone with a brand new Falcon Wing Design.

The HUAWEI Mate X2 folds perfectly into a compact form factor, and unfolds beautifully into a flat display. The phone is powered by a blazing fast Kirin 9000 5G chipset, a versatile 5G system-on-a-chip (SoC) with the most transistors to date. The phone runs on a 4500mAh battery that supports 55W HUAWEI SuperCharge.

With its dual-screen design, HUAWEI Mate X2’s flexible inner display measures 8 inches diagonally, one of the largest of its kind and has a 6.45-inch OLED display on the outside.

HUAWEI Mate X2’s large display is complemented by a suite of smart features designed around multi-tasking. With Smart Multi-Window, Floating Window, App Multiplier, App Bubble and more, users can efficiently multi-task even on a single display.

Multi-Window lets users quickly preview content on another app without minimising the active app, such as previewing an email attachment on the Email app, or opening a hyperlink on the Notepad. App Multiplier allows users to open multiple instances of a single app, which can come in handy at times like referencing another document saved in apps such as Notepad. 

Active Floating Windows are not only resizable and can be stowed into the App Bubble, they can also replace any active Multi-Window at any time. Whether the user needs a smartphone for work, entertainment, social media, or shopping, HUAWEI Mate X2 can do it all.

HUAWEI Mate X2 is equipped with the Ultra Vision Leica Quad Camera to let consumers document and share their lives in crystal clarity, at any time of the day. The 50MP Super Sensing Wide Camera has one of the first sensors to incorporate a RYYB colour filter array (CFA), as well as 4-in-1 pixel binning and Full Pixel Octa PD AutoFocus capabilities for snappy focus and capturing high-quality images even in low light scenes.

Its 10x Telephoto Camera features a periscope optics design, and supports 10 times optical zoom, 20 times hybrid zoom and 100 times digital zoom for long-range photography.

The 16MP Ultra Wide Camera offers an impressive field of view for scenic shots and also supports macro mode for shooting objects as close as 2.5cm from the lens.  

The unique foldable design of HUAWEI Mate X2 lets users take advantage of the powerful Ultra Vision Leica Quad Camera for self-portraits while in terms of audio, HUAWEI Mate X2 is fully equipped to be a personal pocket cinema with a dual-speaker stereo sound system.

Available in White, Black, Crystal Blue and Crystal Pink, the HUAWEI Mate X2 will arrive in stores starting 25 February 2021 for suggested retail prices of RMB 17,999 ($2,783) for the 256GB models and RMB 18,999 ($2,938) for the 512GB models.
