Huawei Consumer Business Group (BG) 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 fibre composite chassis makes 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.
“With some of the best software and hardware innovations at its core, HUAWEI Mate X2 represents a giant leap forward and sets the bar for future foldable devices,” said Richard Yu, Executive Director and Chief Executive Officer of Huawei Consumer BG. “While the HUAWEI Mate Xs was largely regarded as the best-in-class foldable device, we continued to push for new ways to further improve the foldable experience. The HUAWEI Mate X2 represents the future of smartphone technology, with pioneering innovations and a truly fantastic user experience across the board.”
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 centre 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.
Beneath its minimalist appearance, HUAWEI Mate X2 hides another industry-first innovation: an intricate Multi-Dimensional Hinge that Huawei spent over five years perfecting. Through a multi-dimensional interlocking mechanism, the hinge creates a water drop-like cavity for stowing the display when the device is folded. This allows the device to fold perfectly with a near imperceptible gap, and minimises the crease on the outer screen when the device is unfolded. The openings along the sides are also hidden to prevent dust and dirt from entering the system and potentially damaging the screen.
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 maximises 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.
Inspired by the “long-take” camera technique, Huawei made the user interface transition effects on HUAWEI Mate X2 smoother and more responsive. The exclusive dynamic theme further elevates the unfolding experience, featuring a bed of flowers that bloom every time the user opens up the device.
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.
Beyond its outstanding aesthetics, HUAWEI Mate X2 is a highly versatile powerhouse that combines flagship audio-visual capabilities with a blazing fast and power-efficient chip that supports high-speed, stable connectivity. Powered by Kirin 9000, the most integrated and versatile 5G system-on-a-chip (SoC) with the most transistors to date, HUAWEI Mate X2 provides excellent performance, power efficiency and high speed connectivity.
