Huawei’s next-gen foldable phone is coming sooner than expected. Dubbed the Mate X2, the foldable phone made its first appearance on China’s TENAA certification website. The phone is seen with the model numbers TET-AN00 and TET-AN10. Interestingly, these are the same model numbers that were spotted on China’s 3C certification website.
The latest listing reveals that Huawei Mate X2 comes with dual SIM functionality and 5G support. According to reports, Huawei Mate X2 will be quite similar to Samsung’s Galaxy Z Fold 2. It will have an inward folding design. The outer screen will also feature a perforated cutout, reports 91Mobiles. The phone is said to have up to four camera sensors with 3x optical zoom capabilities.
If older rumors are to be believed, Huawei Mate X2 will have a large 8.3-inch display with a refresh rate of up to 120Hz. The foldable phone is said to run with the internal Kirin 9000 processor. On the software side, it will have EMU11 based on Android 10. Other Huawei Mate X2 features that have been leaked include Wi-Fi 6, OLED display and Bluetooth 5.1 respectively.
That said, Huawei was one of the first smartphone companies in the world to introduce a foldable phone. Just like Samsung’s original Galaxy Fold, the commercial launch of Huawei Mate X has also been delayed for several months. Earlier this year, the company introduced an improved Mate Xs foldable smartphone.
Even though the Mate X2 would be similar to Samsung’s Galaxy Z Fold 2, Huawei is also working on a foldable phone with a clamshell design, similar to Motorola’s Galaxy Z Flip and Razr. The upcoming flip-style foldable phone will also house a cover screen and dual cameras on the back.
At the moment, there is no word on the official launch date of the Huawei Mate X2 and the foldable flip phone.
