Huawei Mate X2 unveiled with in-folding design, Kirin 9000

After lots of leaks and teasers, Huawei finally unveiled the folding flagship, the Huawei Mate X2. The device is the successor to Mate X which was launched in 2019. Here in this post, we will have a look at the specs, features, expected price, and availability of Huawei Mate X2 in Nepal.

Huawei Mate X2 Overviews:

Display and Design:

The phone sports an 8-inch OLED inner display with a resolution of 2480 x 220 pixels which results in an 8:7.1 squarish aspect ratio. There is another 6.45-inch OLED external display that has an aspect ratio of 21:9. Both the displays have a 90Hz of refresh rate. However, only the main panel supports DCI-P3 colors. Also, the internal screen has a 240Hz of touch sampling rate whereas the external panel only supports up to 180Hz.

The inner screen has the first “magnetically controlled nano-optical layer” which reduces light reflection and glare. Still, the panel is made up of plastic.

Huawei Mate X2 Hinge

The new hinge design allows the phone to close without any gap. Huawei used Zirconium based liquid and carbon fiber panels in the hinge to reduce the weight. The phone weighs 295g which is quite acceptable for a foldable phone.


The Mate X2 flaunts a quad-camera setup at the back with a 50MP main sensor with an aperture of f/1.9. The main sensor supports OIS. The second lens is an 8MP periscope zoom lens with an aperture of f/4.4 and OIS which supports up to 10x optical zoom, 20x hybrid zoom, and 100x digital zoom. There is a 12MP telephoto zoom with an aperture of f/2.4 and OIS which support 3x optical zoom (best for portrait). The setup is completed by a 16MP ultrawide lens with an aperture of f/2.2. The phone can record 4k@30/60fps and 1080p@30/60fps from the rear camera.
