HUAWEI's highly-anticipated second-gen folding smartphone has finally been announced today. The HUAWEI Mate X2 sports a different design compared with its predecessor by featuring an inward-folding design rather than outward-folding one. Besides that, the brand has removed the selfie camera from the main display by putting it into an outer display, allowing the users to have a full-view experience. Let's read on to find out more about the HUAWEI Mate X2!

The device features an 8-inch foldable inner OLED display that comes with a 2480 x 2200 pixel resolution, a 90Hz refresh rate, and a 240Hz touch sampling rate at 413 PPI. For the mentioned outer display, it uses a 6.45-inch panel with a 90Hz refresh rate, 2700 x 1160 pixel resolution, and a 240Hz touch sampling rate at 456 PPI. The latest folding smartphone is powered by the in-house Kirin 9000 chipset paired with a 24-core Mali-G78 GPU. It also houses a 4,500mAh battery which supports 55W fast charging.
