Huawei to bring out a new foldable smartphone by the end of February

One tipster took to Weibo, stating the new foldable phone will be here “very soon” with a new and improved design, 5nm chipset, and “new impressive technology.”

What do you know so far?

What’s interesting? Everyone has assumed that Huawei will be using a similar design to what Samsung uses. So far, images of the Huawei Mate X2 have not yet been leaked.

But according to the latest rumors, it suggests that it will have an inner screen. This is a departure from its predecessor, the Mate Xs –– the phone has one big outer display that is always visible regardless if the smartphone is folded or not.

The Huawei Mate Xs will have an inner screen that will be in full view once the user unfolds the phone. And once it’s folded, its full size is hidden away, but a second smaller screen is available on the outside. This second screen will likely be for viewing notifications.

Additionally, based on previous leaks, the Mate X2 is expected to feature an 8.01-inch with 2,220 x 2,480 internal screen. Meanwhile, the external screen will feature a 6.45-inch 1160 x 2700 resolution. However, that does not give us anything on its design –– this still remains a mystery, at least for now.

Finally, the latest leak reveals other details, such as the Huawei Mate X2 will have a 5nm chipset, which will almost certainly be the Kirin 9000 as already seen on the Huawei 40 series. Another leak states that the smartphone is expected to have “some very dazzling technologies”, which is vague but stirs the imagination.

Its expected launch date is very fast approaching. It is only a matter of time before another leak reveals what the device will look like. And before we know it, its design will be everywhere on the internet.
