Huawei Mate X2 – a new fold, literally

Huawei announced the Mate X2, its third foldable smartphone. The new device brings a new folding design – inward fold rather than outward fold. The change in design means the Mate X2 is now more like a Samsung Galaxy Fold 2, but a better and refined one if we are being honest.

You get two displays, each with a 90Hz refresh rate. The larger screen which unfolds into an 8-inch tablet has no cut-outs for a camera, so if you want to take a selfie, you either fold the device to use the front-facing cameras or flip the phone backward (unfolded state) to use the rear cameras. The Mate X2 also has a Kirin 9000 processor and 55W fast charging.
