Huawei Mate X2′ launch reported to have been postponed


While Samsung cemented its hold of the foldable market with multiple models last year, Huawei was missing from the scene after it announced the Mate Xs in February. Fans of the first two models were expecting the announcement of the Huawei Mate X2 but that never happened. Now, a new report says that the foldable phone which was earlier scheduled to launch this month has been postponed.

The info comes from Teme (@RODENT950) who revealed that Huawei Mate X2’s launch that was originally planned for this month has been moved forward. However, there is no news of a new timeframe or specific date for the launch.

While no reason was provided for the postponement of the launch, our guess is that it has to do with Huawei’s current chipset predicament. Other than the Mate X2, it also has the Huawei P50 series scheduled for this quarter, and with limited chipsets, including the Kirin 9000

, it may be weighing its options as to which device(s) should get the available stock.

There are rumors that the Mate X2 will have an inward folding design just like that of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 but a leaked image alleged to be that of the device

that surfaced a few months ago shows an outward folding design. Until more concrete evidence surfaces, the Mate X2’s design remains unconfirmed.

Nevertheless, we expect Huawei to launch a foldable that packs improved features such as a bigger battery capacity with support for a faster charging technology, and better cameras.
