Huawei is posed to launch a new foldable phone, the Mate X2, on February 22, 2021. Its launch date was confirmed on the company’s official Weibo account.
The post showed, at least, a clue on how it works, showing an inward folding display, similar to the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 that launched last year. Coincidentally, the display panel will be supplied by Samsung and BOE.
According to this report, the Mate X2 will have an inward folding display size of 8.01 inches with 2480 x 2200 resolution and a possible 120Hz refresh rate. The panel will have a scratch-resistant colorless polyimide (CPI) surface, instead of an ultra-thin glass. It will also feature a 6.45-inch secondary display with a 2700 x 1160 resolution.

The Mate X2 will come with a quad camera setup composed of a 50MP, 16MP, 12MP and 8MP cameras. One of the shooters will have a periscope telephoto lens with up to 10x hybrid optical zoom.
The foldable phone will have a 4,400mAh battery and a 66-watt fast charging support. It will be powered by a Kirin 9000 chip with Bluetooth 5.1, running on EMUI 11.
At this point, Huawei have not yet issued any information about the upcoming phone, save for the February 22 launch date. We’ll likely find more details in the coming days leading to the launch.
