Imagine What Unfolds: Huawei announces HUAWEI Mate X2

Huawei Consumer Business Group (BG) today announced HUAWEI Mate X2, the new-generation foldable flagship smartphone that unfolds new and exciting experiences with a brand-new Falcon Wing Design opening up new possibilities in the realm of mobile technology.


Featuring an all-new compact design with a deliberately shifted point of balance, HUAWEI Mate X2 handles exceptionally whether folded or not. The unfolded display is one of the industry’s largest, offering a consistent user experience across the two forms. Engineered with precision, HUAWEI Mate X2 folds perfectly into a compact form factor and unfolds beautifully into a flat display. The high-strength steel and carbon fiber composite chassis make for a light yet robust device. Combining the Ultra Vision Leica Quad Camera, powerful dual-speaker stereo sound system, and the blazing fast Kirin 9000 5G chipset, HUAWEI Mate X2 exemplifies some of the best technology the industry has to offer. 

Falcon Wing Design: beauty that belies the sophistication

HUAWEI Mate X2’s Seamless Foldable Design folds perfectly into a compact shape with smooth corners all around. Unfolded, it has a sloped rear side that allows the device to be as thin as 4.4mm on one end. The point of balance is shifted slightly away from the center of the device, so it is perfectly balanced whether unfolded or closed.

With its dual-screen design, HUAWEI Mate X2’s flexible inner display measures 8 inches diagonally, one of the largest of its kind. On top of that, HUAWEI Mate X2 also introduces a magnetically-controlled nano-optical layer to minimize reflection. It works seamlessly with the 6.45-inch OLED display on the outside. Both displays have a super high resolution, a high touch sample rate, and a refresh rate of 90Hz to offer a consistent experience as users switch from one mode to another.

Unfolding new experiences

With two displays, HUAWEI Mate X2 offers the best of both worlds. The larger display offers an expansive viewing area, while the foldability of the device maximizes portability. Leveraging extensive research on human factors, Huawei designed the foldable form factor from the ground up to support the unique smart experience. From internet browsing and productivity tasks in the office to media consumption, online shopping, and gaming at home, HUAWEI Mate X2 delivers incredibly immersive experiences unlike any other. 

Available in White, Black, Crystal Blue, and Crystal Pink, HUAWEI Mate X2 will arrive in select countries starting 25 February 2021 for suggested retail prices. Availability in UK and Europe to be confirmed.
