When the Mate X2 is folded, the flexible screen is stored in a teardrop shape, instead of the hard folding method of Samsung Fold and Flip series models. This avoids folding marks and increases screen life.

The Mate X2 has a complex double helix teardrop hinge that uses carbon fiber composites as well as high-strength steel.

The hinge uses a zirconium-based liquid metal material with a strength of 2100MPa, which is 50 percent stronger than the steel used in automotive B-pillars.

The thinnest part of the phone is only 4.4mm thick when unfolded, with a double-wedge unequal thickness design to meet the thickness of the camera module.

In terms of multi-screen operation, Mate X2 supports preview floating window, single-application multitasking, drag-and-drop sharing, and hover storage.

The rear camera module of the Mate X2 features a 50MP primary camera, 16MP ultra-wide-angle lens, 12MP telephoto lens, and 8MP periscopic telephoto lens. The device supports a 20x hybrid zoom.

The Mate X2 comes with a Kirin 9000 processor and a 4500mAh battery and supports 55W Huawei Super Fast Charging.

In addition, Huawei's flagship phones can be upgraded to HarmonyOS starting in April, and the Mate X2 will be among the first to do so.


The Mate X2 is priced at RMB 17,999 for the 256GB version and RMB 18,999 for the 512GB version and will be available starting February 25.

Here's hoping that foldable phones drop below 1000$ in price. I wanna buy one, but they're so ridiculously expensive.

They design it in a way that the screen would not be split in half months later.
Yeah what you said...I know people who bought the folding samsung phones, 3 months in they already have light lines running down the middle with signs of the screen cracking...

Most advanced? Huawei said the same for its p30pro that just now costs 1/3 that was one year ago.
Nobody should buy overpriced bullshit.
If you want to enjoy the latest technology, you have to pay. But if some old shxt like your vindiesel which still charge a crazy price, that is called overpriced bullshit nobody should buy...

I love my samsung and currently using s21,but I'll def pick this over Samsung zfold any day if I had to choose.This is the best folding handphone atm.
All huawei needs is a more refined user interface with harmony OS.

No. The world's most advanced technology costs money, not that you would know anything about that.
Lol seriously!! Even if Huawei was sold in the US...at $2.7k would put it out of reach of most people since majority of the folks only intend to spend around $1k and this applies for several countries. For medium-low income countries in which Huawei operates, this phone is totally out of the equation
