The first "Bull Machine" in the Year of the Ox is here!
Just now, Huawei released a new generation of folding flagship Mate X2 . This is the first major flagship phone conference after the Spring Festival.
Why is it a "bull machine"? As of press time, the number of Mate X2 appointments on Huawei's official website has exceeded 2.4 million, and the degree of difficulty in grabbing can be expected.
Speaking of Huawei Mate X2 itself, as Huawei's third-generation folding screen mobile phone, compared with the previous two-generation models Mate X and MateXs, its biggest change is the improvement of the folding scheme: from external folding to internal folding .
Compared with the outward folding, the obvious advantage of the inward folding scheme is that the screen can be better protected and is not easy to scratch or wear. However, the previous inward folding scheme generally has a problem, that is, the mobile phone has large creases and is prone to creases.
However, Huawei said that Mate X2 uses new technologies and materials. Creases and creases will no longer be the pain points of the inward folding scheme.

Before detailing the features of Mate X2, let’s take a look at its main configuration :
- Kirin 9000 processor
- The secondary screen is 6.45 inches, the main screen is 8 inches, dual 90Hz refresh rate
- Inward folding scheme can achieve seamless micro marks
- Rear four-camera combination, supported by Leica, supports 10x optical zoom
- 4500mAh battery, support 55W flash charge
- The first double-wedge integrated design, the thinnest part of the fuselage is only 4.4mm
- Price starts at 17,999 yuan, on sale on February 25
Seamless micro marks, pretty enough
Huawei Mate X2 uses a double-wedge-shaped integrated design . After unfolding, the fuselage presents a smooth and neat slope, with the thinnest point being only 4.4 mm.
This shifted center of gravity design achieves a new balance with asymmetry. Whether it is one-handed or two-handed, in theory, you can get a good grip.
In the folded state, the display area of the secondary screen of Huawei Mate X2 is 6.45 inches , the resolution is 2700×1160, 456ppi, and it supports 90Hz refresh rate and P3 color gamut.
On the upper left is a double dig hole, which seems to be slightly smaller than the Mate40 Pro series. Contains sensors and a 16 million pixel front camera.
After unfolding, the full display area of the inner screen can reach 8 inches, the resolution is 2480×2200, 413ppi, and it also supports 90Hz refresh rate and P3 color gamut. The whole screen has no holes, 8:7.1 ratio, visually integrated.
In addition, Huawei Mate X2 launched the " Magnetron Nano Optical Film ", which is said to effectively reduce the reflectivity of the screen.
More noteworthy is the new hinge of Mate X2. In the warm-up phase, Huawei quoted the famous saying in the poster, "The same material, there are man-made palaces", to imply Mate X2's achievements in hinge technology.
According to the information displayed at the press conference, Huawei Mate X2 uses a " double-rotating drop hinge ", which forms a drop-like screen space at the bend through a multi-dimensional phase control linkage mechanism.
Thanks to this newly designed hinge, Huawei Mate X2 realizes that the inner screen does not leave a gap when it is closed, and it ensures that the screen is flat after unfolding . This design is not only beautiful, but also reduces the possibility of dust and other debris entering, which is beneficial to protect the screen.
Huawei also stated that the hinge system of Mate X2 uses carbon fiber composite materials, zirconium-based liquid metal, and >2100MPa super-strength steel. The material strength is higher than that of high-safety car B-pillars, ensuring lightness and durability.
In addition, the new hinge system also effectively protects the fold area of the screen, so that the screen does not leave obvious creases after repeated folding.
Kirin 9000 chip, stable enough
Friends who know Huawei Mate 40 Pro should not be unfamiliar with Kirin 9000.
This chip will be released along with the Mate40 series in October 2020. Using the 5nm process technology, the combination of 8-core CPU + 24-core GPU + NPU, the Kirin 9000 has become Huawei's current highest-end mobile phone Soc, even in the face of Qualcomm Snapdragon 888. There is full confidence.
As the flagship product, Huawei Mate X2 adopts Kirin 9000 chip. And the large body after unfolding is theoretically more conducive to heat dissipation, and the actual performance may be better than Mate40 Pro.
I just don't know how many chips can be allocated to the Mate X2, which sells for nearly 20,000 yuan, when the inventory is limited and the follow-up models such as P50 and MatePad Pro2 are stocked.
Even though Yu Chengdong said at the press conference that Huawei has been working hard to increase the production capacity of Mate X2, Mate X2 is still likely to be "difficult to find a machine." It is not unreasonable for netizens to ridicule it as the "annual wealth management product".
Leica four-camera combination
The photography ability of Mate X2 is also one of its important selling points .
A 1/1.28-inch outsole main camera, 50 million pixels, maximum aperture of f/1.9, supports OIS optical image stabilization.
In addition to the large size of this main camera sensor, it also integrates RYYB color filter array, four-in-one pixel fusion, and full-pixel eight-core focusing technology. It can focus quickly, accurately, and ruthlessly in dark light.
The ultra-wide-angle lens is 16 million pixels, and the macro function can achieve 2.5cm ultra-close focus.
The 3x portrait lens is 12 million pixels, the equivalent focal length is 70mm, the maximum aperture is f/1.4, and it also supports OIS optical image stabilization.
The last one is a periscope telephoto lens with 8 million pixels. Support 10x optical zoom, equivalent to 240mm focal length, can achieve 20x hybrid zoom and 100x digital zoom.
Due to its foldable design, the rear camera of Huawei Mate X2 can also be used as a front camera when it is unfolded, taking selfies to a higher level.
Dual speakers, four colors
In addition to the features mentioned above, Huawei Mate X2 also has these small highlights worth paying attention to:
In terms of battery, Huawei Mate X2 uses a 4500mAh battery and supports 55W super fast charging.
In terms of sound quality, Huawei Mate X2 is equipped with ultra-thin large-amplitude dual speakers . Through ultra-light carbon fiber dome and Huawei Histen sound field expansion algorithm, it can bring a rich and delicate sound quality experience.
In terms of color matching, Mate X2 is also more diverse than the previous generation, providing four colors : glaze white, bright black, ice crystal blue and ice crystal powder.
In addition, the Huawei Mate X2 packaging box is accompanied by a new leather bracket protective shell , which can be used as a mobile phone holder in both folded and unfolded forms.
At the press conference, Huawei also announced the latest developments in HarmonyOS, which has attracted much attention. Yu Chengdong said: " Starting in April this year, Huawei's flagship phones can be upgraded to HarmonyOS one after another , and Huawei Mate X2 will be the first batch of upgrades."
Starting at 17,999 yuan, earn it when you grab it?
In terms of price, Huawei Mate X2 is 1,000 yuan more expensive than the starting price of the previous generation. The 256GB version is 17,999 yuan, and the 512GB version is 18,999 yuan. The release date is set at 10:08 on February 25th.
As for whether it can be obtained, not only hand speed and internet speed are tested, it may also depend on fate.
On the whole, Huawei Mate X2 can be regarded as the current masterpiece of Huawei's terminal. The brand-new design, the brand-new craft, created the brand-new folding screen flagship.
