Huawei Mate X2 Official Now – Price and full specifications, Unboxing, new technologies introductions.
In today’s evening, Huawei Mate X2 foldable phone launch was held as promised. At the beginning of the launch, Yu Chengdong took the stage and said that Huawei survived the multiple rounds of sanctions from the United States in 2020, despite being very difficult, with the support of partners and suppliers.
Yu Chengdong said that in the year just past, Huawei cell phone and wear market share to achieve the first in China, TWS headset to achieve 80% growth. The new smart life of full-scene intelligence, Huawei has more than 1 billion smart connected devices, more than 50 million HiLink ecological users, and more than 580 million monthly active users of HMS.
To provide better service, Huawei has more than 10,000 authorized experience stores nationwide, with more than 2,000 authorized service centers, and a consumer service satisfaction of 99%, ranking first in the Chinese market for six consecutive years.
At the conference, Huawei released a new folding screen flagship phone Huawei Mate X2. Huawei Mate X2’s first dual wedge-shaped integrated design, with a very futuristic eagle wing folding form, strong performance, and top photography strength, with innovative folding screen interaction and rich application ecology, reshapes the folding screen cell phone experience.
Regardless of the screen or folding hinge are fully upgraded, equipped with a large 8-inch 8:7.1 foldable screen golden ratio, 6.45-inch secondary screen. Besides, Huawei Mate X2’s first dual wedge-shaped one-piece design as well as the first center of gravity offset design to create a new balance of asymmetry, the thinnest part of only 4.4mm, feel good.
For the foldable phone, the gap after folding is a problem, and in the Mate X2 foldable phone, Huawei finally solved this problem, the design of the dual-spin water drop hinge, took five years to technically conquer, cleverly achieve seamless micro-scratch folding.
Besides, the Mate X2 also makes extensive use of carbon fiber composite materials, zirconium-based liquid metal, and >2100MPa super-strong steel, with material strength higher than that of high-security-grade automotive B-pillars, ensuring a strong and reliable hinge.
How about the folding effect of the Mate X2? The launch site, Yu Chengdong compared Samsung’s folding screen flagship Galaxy Z Fold 2 phone, the first is the flatness of the folded, Mate X2 can be seamless, while the Z Fold 2 folded and obvious folding traces.
Secondly, in the display, Mate X2 unfolded is 8 inches large screen, display ratio is 8: 7.1, called the golden ratio, more suitable for large screen reading. After folding the outer screen, Mate X2 is the 6.45-inch screen, compared to the Z Fold2 phone, the bezel is reduced by 47%, the display area is 22% larger, the display ratio is also more mainstream 21: 9. The folded Mate X2 is even better than the iPhone 12 Pro in terms of grip, compact and comfortable, and can be operated with one hand.
As a new generation of folding-screen phones, Huawei Mate X2 with 8:7.1 golden ratio flexible inner screen, covered with the industry’s first magnetic nano-optical film as of now, effectively reducing the screen reflectivity. 6.45-inch external screen, internal and external screen dual high refresh rate, and P3 wide color gamut. Screen use and viewing experience are comfortable and smooth.
It is worth noting that Huawei Mate X2 debuted the magnetic control nano-optical film, which can achieve ultra-low screen reflectivity and effectively reduce the impact of screen folds on the visual experience, greatly enhancing the practicality of folding-screen phones.
Huawei Mate X2 with the 8-inch foldable internal screen, resolution 2480×2200, aspect ratio 8:7.1, almost close to the square. Compared to the current mainstream 18:9 ratio, 8:7.1 ratio seems quite “exaggerated”, for APP adaptation, is a considerable challenge. I didn’t expect it, but this time Huawei Mate X2 has a good adaptation to the mainstream APP.
At present, Huawei Mate X2 has completed 100% adaptation of TOP 200 applications, 95% adaptation of TOP 1000 applications, rich folding screen applications to bring the ultimate large-screen experience. From the official pictures, Huawei Mate X2 games, you can display a wider screen, more visually stunning.
In terms of speculation, Huawei Mate X2’s widescreen also brings desktop-level speculation experience, with a list of stock codes, K-line charts, company news, and other data all in one place. Huawei also said that it will join hands with 1000+ member companies of the Software Green Alliance to continuously improve the ecological construction of folding-screen phones, providing a complete folding development framework and perfect folding design specifications.
At the conference, Huawei Managing Director and Huawei Consumer Business CEO Yu Chengdong said, “Starting in April this year, Huawei flagship phones can be upgraded to HarmonyOS one after another, and the Huawei Mate X2 will be the first to be upgraded.”
HarmonyOS (HarmonyOS) is a new generation OS system developed by Huawei and officially launched at the HDC developer conference in August 2019, which is a microkernel-based full-scene distributed OS system with advantages such as distributed architecture, innate fluency, kernel security, and ecological mutual sharing.

Huawei Mate X2 Unboxing
Huawei consumer business flagship cell phone product line president BruceLee for the first time to unbox the new product, hands-on real machine, share the new experience of folding flagship. As you can see from the video, Huawei Mate X2’s box is square and can be described as unpretentious. The 8-inch Mate X2 is unfolded in a way that lies flat inside the box, and the surface is covered with a layer of magnetically controlled nano-optical film that can better protect the flexible screen.
A warm reminder inside the box reads: The inner screen comes with a specially designed protective film, which needs to be torn off and replaced with professional tools, and may damage the screen by itself. If you need to replace the protective film, please consult the customer service hotline or go to Huawei Customer Service Center.
The Huawei Mate X2 features a wedge-shaped design that gets thinner from right to left, allowing the center of gravity to fall on the right hand for a better grip. The entire device is only 4.4mm thin at its thinnest point, thinner than the previous generation of folding screen Mate Xs.
In addition, Huawei Mate X2 uses the industry’s unique double-spin waterdrop hinge, which not only achieves a seamless fold, but also ensures minimal bending marks, making the unfolded screen flatter and smoother. The box also comes with a 66W phone charging head (Huawei Mate X2 supports 55W wired fast charging), which can be fully charged to 80% in 30 minutes.
