Huawei Mate X2 Display
If you look back at the history of smartphone development, it is not difficult to find that every time the physical form of the phone changes, will bring about a huge change in the interactive experience. From physical keyboards, to touch screens, to full screens, nothing is different.
Next, the smartphone form will be towards which form of development? I think it’s the folding screen. It is not perfect at the moment, but still represents the ultimate direction of the evolution of smartphone form in the next 10 years.
At present, Huawei, Samsung as the representative of the first-line manufacturers have been the mass production of folding-screen phones, folding screen technology is also becoming more and more mature. Standing in front of the starting line in 2021, we can not help but ask, the next folding-screen phone, what should look like?
On February 3, the Huawei terminal official announcement will be held on February 22, a new generation of folding flagship launch, the official release of Huawei Mate X2. A warm-up poster appeared at the tip of the new machine’s iceberg, sitting in the “inside fold” rumors.
Yu Chengdong first time with the new machine to follow up the warm-up microblogging, he said since it has been used for some time, full of surprises. Yu Chengdong said bluntly, without exaggeration, Huawei Mate Xs is still the best experience of the folding-screen phone on the market, but there is no end to move forward, but also continue to break through the self, and constantly optimize the core experience of the product.
Huawei cell phone product line vice president Li Xiaolong said, “this generation of folding machine we will introduce a lot of unique innovation, in the core experience has also been comprehensively improved, is deservedly the most powerful flagship, we look forward to.”
First of all, the appearance of ID design changes. From the official preview poster released, Huawei Mate X2 the biggest change is the use of internal folding design solutions, it is expected that the screen material and hinge process will be further upgraded to achieve a better folding effect. At the same time, the internal design can close the screen like a book when not using the phone, can effectively reduce the chances of screen damage, improve the durability of the device, enhancing the practicality of folding-screen phones.
The second is the improvement of the folds. Previously, a major pain point of the folding screen is the crease, in Huawei Mate X2, this trouble is expected to be solved. Huawei recently disclosed the invention patent of “a foldable terminal device”, submitted by Huawei in 2019 to the State Intellectual Property Office for registration. According to the patent, this is a foldable flexible panel, the first support member, the second support member, and connection mechanism design scheme, by optimizing the connection of the components to avoid stretching or extrusion of the screen panel in the folding process, can effectively lower the folding screen crease problem.
According to the news, Huawei Mate X2 has passed the network certification, combined with the above patent application time, Mate X2 is likely to actually use this new patented technology, greatly improve, and even eliminate creases.
Not only that, but the hardware specifications of Huawei Mate X2 is also expected to be enhanced across the board. According to the news, Huawei Mate X2 will be equipped with a 5nm Kirin 9000 chip, the internal will use an 8.01-inch in-fold main screen, the resolution of 2480 × 2200, the external secondary screen size of 6.45 inches, the resolution of 2700 × 1160.
Despite previous news that Samsung has begun supplying folding screens to Chinese manufacturers, it seems that the Mate X2 is not a beneficiary customer. Ross Young, the founder of screen analysis agency DSCC, revealed during an exchange with fans on social media platforms that Huawei Mate X2 did have two major suppliers in the development stage, Samsung and BOE, but now only BOE.
Recently, the digital chat station has exposed the Mate X2 rendering of an engineering machine that matches the previously leaked prototype and patent images. The blogger said that Huawei Mate X2 in the folding screen phone is considered thin and light, the main screen without openings design, secondary screen for the upper left double openings.
Huawei Mate X2 built-in 4400mAh battery, equipped with 50 megapixels + 16 megapixels + 12 megapixels + 8 megapixels four-camera combination for the rear and 16-megapixel camera for the front.
