ModelHuawei Mate X2 carries a particularly luxurious price tag - and adopts the main competitor's method with a screen that folds inwards, instead of outwards
Even after failing to appease the US administration and reduce its economic sanctions and sell its Honor brand, Huawei's smart device division insists on continuing to broadcast business as usual and introduces the world to the Mate X2, a third folding model in the ultra-premium brand that looks very similar to -Galaxy Z Fold 2.
The Mate X2 adopts the method in which the flexible main screen is internal, and is accompanied by a standard external screen for more accessible use when the device is closed - the main screen is OLED Diagonal size of 8 inches with a resolution of 2,480 × 2,200 pixels and a refresh rate of up to 90 Hz, while the secondary is OLED 6.45-inch with a resolution of 2,700 × 1,160 pixels and a refresh rate of 90 Hz, both of which enjoy a high touch sampling rate of 240 Hz and 180 Hz (for the main screen and the secondary screen respectively).
The new folding smartphone boasts an exotic metallic structure with the ability to fold completely flat (unlike competing devices from Samsung where there is some space left inside the fold that increases the chances of foreign self-penetration and damage to the delicate screen), with only 4.4 millimeters thick at the thinnest point - and internal storage 3.1GB or 256GB UFS 512 capable of further expansion with Huawei's exclusive NM cards, 5GB LPDDR8 memory, stereo speakers, chip NFC Built-in and built-in 4,500mAh battery with support for extremely fast 55 watt charging.
The camera system in the Mate X2 is another of its prominent intended advantages, thanks to a large 50-megapixel main sensor with built-in optical stabilization, as well as 12-megapixel secondary sensors for optical zoom of up to three times, 8-megapixel in a periscope configuration for optical zoom Up to 10x and 16x wide-angle shooting - all with the addition of a 16-megapixel selfie sensor located at the top of the secondary screen, so the resulting internal number remains intact with no holes and glitches for any cameras.
Similar to the Mate 40 Pro models from the end of the year, the Mate X2 is also powered by chip The advanced octane Kirin 9000 is in the 5 nm production process - which is a relative surprise, considering that according to all reports Huawei Managed to produce only a few million units of it based on orders to TSMC, before the latter had to sever its business ties with the manufacturer in order to meet the guidelines of the American sanctions whose end is not seen in the way (even under the fresh democratic interface). There are reports that inHuawei Speed up the advanced chips and plan to use them in both the P50 family models and the Mate 50 family models this year - although this seems to be first and foremost evidence that sales have shrunk significantly and are likely to continue this shrinking process well into 2021.
Huawei Mate X2 will be offered in China starting in the coming days in shades of black, white, pink and blue with crazy price tags of 18,000 yuan for a version with 256GB of storage and 19,000 yuan for a version with 512GB of storage - $ 2,780 and $ 2,940 in direct conversion, which are more than NIS 9,200 and more than NIS 9,700 respectively. The chances of finding the device in the country will be minimal, and even if and when it happens it is worth remembering that you will not find there the familiar built-in applications of Google Or the thrift storePlay Store For their and others' download.
In other words, if you like what you see in the photos - you can focus on hoping that some other maker in the Android world will adopt the concepts and technologies soon, and will do so with reasonable Western support and a slightly more sane price tag.
