Huawei’s next foldable phone, the Mate X2, will feature an inward folding design. The company has published a poster on the Chinese social networking site Weibo which reveals the design. Huawei Mate X2 will go global on February 22.
The new form factor from Huawei albeit only teased at the moment, suggests a hinge mechanism similar to the Samsung Galaxy Fold. Previously, Huawei Mate X (review) debuted with an outward fold; and later, its sibling Mate Xs also followed its footsteps with few improvements.

Huawei Mate X2: What we know so far
The teaser poster shows a folding phone inside a clock shape design where the hinges display a time of eight which is probably the scheduled launch time of 8:00 PM in China. Another thing confirmed by the company so far is that the Huawei Mate X2 will be powered by a Kirin 9000 chipset.
Rest, Huawei Mate X2 is tipped to sport an 8.01-inch primary display and a 6.45-inch secondary screen. The main display could boast a dual punch hole housing the front camera. The Mate X2 is said to employ a quartet camera at the back comprising a 50MP primary, a 16MP ultrawide, a 12MP depth, and an 8MP macro lens. Also, the rear camera is believed to offer 10X optical zoom.
In case of the battery, Mate X2 is supposed to pack 4400mAh supporting 66W fast charging. Just to recall, its predecessor Mate X missed fast charge support. The device should run on Huawei’s EMUI based Android 10 operating system.
In a matter of days, we will see the real picture of what Huawei has hidden behind the curtain and how promising it is for the future of foldables.
