HUAWEI TO LAUNCH NEW FOLDABLE PHONE
Huawei is about to launch its third folding smartphone. The company announced on its account Weibo (via Android Central) that the Huawei Mate X2 will be presented on February 22 at an event in China. No further details about the device were shared, although they flirted with an image which implies that the phone will have a seamless display, without the visible crease that plagues some other folding models.
It also appears that the new phone will have an inward folding design, similar to the Galaxy Z Fold 2 from Samsung, and the opposite of its predecessor, the Mate XS, which folds out. The teaser shared by Huawei confirms that the Mate X2 will be launched on February 22, 2021. The original Huawei Mate X never left China, and most likely the same will happen with the Mate X2, without being available in the rest of the world . Foldables, by their very nature, are expensive and out of reach for many consumers.
The problem with Huawei phones these days is that they don't come with the Google due to the United States trade ban, which makes them hardly usable by people outside of China. So due to everything we've discussed, the Mate X2 is likely not available outside of the Asian nation, which is a shame, as it is meant to be an interesting device.
