Huawei is set to unveil the Mate 40 series on October 22 in China. The Mate 40 smartphones are sure to be on the stage. However, there is a pinch of hope for the rumored Huawei Mate X2 to debut that day. And now, a concept created by Jermaine Smit(YT: Concept Creator) gives us a good look at the foldable device.
The concept video shared by LetsGoDigital courtesy of Jermaine shows the device in Grey color. Just like the patented design, the renders show an inward folding on the device. Also, the video shared by Jermaine on his YouTube channel has a 3D render that didn’t miss out on the placement of ports as well. It has chamfered edges with volume buttons and a power button to the right. The USB-C and speaker grille gets split between the side housing the camera and secondary display.
The vertical hinge looks a lot similar to the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold2 with an inward bending motion, and so is the rear camera housing. But this rectangular housing has four lenses instead of three on Samsung. The front camera is on the cover display inside the pill-shaped hole. Further, the renders also grab the attention with a thicker portion housing the camera, and a thinner portion housing the smaller display. If this were to be a final design, we guess the thicker portion might house the battery.
Huawei Mate X2 Specifications(Expected)
Regarding the specifications, a tip reveals that the bigger display on Mate X2 will likely be 8.03-inches with a resolution of 2480×2220 pixels. And sport a 120Hz refresh rate screen. However, the device codenamed “Teton” will likely retain the CPI(Transparent Polyimide) and not have an Ultra-Thin Glass(UTG) like Samsung.
As for the optics, the render shows a periscopic lens similar to the patent. And rumors say it will host two 40MP sensors. One of them will likely be an ultra-wide lens. Other features OIS, 3x optical zoom are expected. The front will either feature one/two sensors for selfies.
The device may feature Kirin 9000 SoC that is probably coming with Mate 40 series. For connectivity, an alleged Wi-Fi certification shows it will likely have a Hi1105 chipset for Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.1. And subsequent leaks say it will run EMUI 11 based on Android 10. If the device ever passes the hurdles to reach the users, it is sure to steal everyone’s hearts.
