Huawei is expected to unveil its flagship Mate 40 series any moment from now. The anticipated models include the Mate X2 and Mate X2 Pro. The company may also introduce another flagship product, this time the Mate X2 foldable phone.
There is no official word on when the Mate X2 will be launched but there are speculations it won’t hit the market until next year. It could also make an appearance alongside the Mate 40 series. A purported hands-on image of the Mate X2 has leaked online. The leak which appeared on Weibo thanks to Chinese blogger @8090 Life Digital, gives us a glimpse of the alleged Mate X2 in its fully unfolded state. We must note that the device looks just like the Mate Xs which in turn was nearly identical to the Mate X.
The phone appears to utilise an outward folding design even though this is at variance with recent patent filings which point to an infolding design. The foldable design adopts the same screen protector as it predecessor.
The Huawei Mate X2 is rumoured to feature the same 8-inch screen as the Mate X alongside a rear-mounted camera setup. The foldable smartphone is also expected to pack the flagship Kirin 9000 chipset which will also be used by the Mate 40 series.
