Huawei Mate X2 to be officially announced on February 22nd with an inward folding display
According to Huawei’s official Weibo account, the next foldable phone of the company is called Mate X2 and will be unveiled on February 22nd. Instead of following the outward folding design philosophy of the previous Mate X devices, it seems that Huawei is taking a sharp turn and the Mate X2 will feature an inward folding flexible display.
Interesting that @HuaweiMobile seems to have succumbed to having an inward folding flexible display on its next foldable phone. It's first Mate X was an eye-catching design but never seemed very practical. https://t.co/KgGVftvlNC— Ben Wood (@benwood) February 3, 2021
Huawei Consumer Business Group CEO Richard Yu posted on Weibo a comment, stating that he’s been using the device “for some time,” and that the Mate X2 is “full of surprises.” By the way, the inward folding design turnaround may just be an optical illusion, there’s no way to tell from the teaser image.
All will be revealed in a few weeks but it seems doubtful that Huawei will manage to shake off the repercussions of Trump’s ban easily, even if Biden decides to lift the ban and bring Google services back to Huawei.
