Folding-screen phones have been labeled with “trendy toys” and “unpractical design” for a long time. It is difficult for them to really fit in users’ daily lives. Compared to its competitors and predecessor, this time Huawei gives us a more mature, more practical product, Huawei Mate X2.
Although folding screen phones only have two forms, there are many problems that may occur like, creases, gaps, and so on. However, Huawei Mate X2’s unique design solves these issues.
Fold seamlessly: “multi-fold” double wedge design
Huawei Mate X2 used a pioneer double wedge design, when the screens are folded, they can fit together neatly like two “wedges”, achieving nearly seamless. This huge improvement, most of the previously released folding screen phones didn’t make it happen.
Thanks to the unique wedge design, the thickness of the screens decreased, it became very thin as the leftmost edge is just 4.4mm. This design not only takes into account the visual effect of the screen but also takes care of the one-hand grip experience.
Double rotating waterdrop hinge brings a visual upgrade
The crease has been difficult to overcome for folding-screen phone manufacturers. Huawei Mate X2 does not completely eliminate this crease, but it is almost difficult to notice without giving a close look. The hinge determines the product’s life, appearance, and user experience, it is always what users care about the most when it comes to a foldable device.
Huawei claimed to have taken five years to overcome the technology, we can experience the “dual-spin water drop hinge” on Huawei Mate X2. The hinge system needs a variety of highly sophisticated special materials and special manufacturing processes. Huawei also introduced for the first time the super-strong steel whose strength is even higher than the car B-pillar, the carbon fiber composite material applied ensures a comfortable weight with high strength.
Dual internal and external screens
Huawei Mate X2 has an external screen of a 6.45-inch 21:9 OLED display that supports a 90Hz high refresh rate, 240Hz touch sampling rate, and P3 wide color gamut. (The inner screen also supports a 90Hz high refresh rate and P3 wide color gamut)
The bezel of the outer screen is very narrow thus the display area is larger. Compared to Samsung Galaxy Z Fold2, Huawei Mate X2’s screen feels wider and closer to a normal phone screen when held in one hand, making it more comfortable to use the external screen alone.
With the super large screen of an 8:7.1 golden display ratio, the visual effect of the unfolded is definitely not comparable to traditional cell phones.
Huawei Mate X2 has completed 80% update of the TOP 3000 software covering reading, video, online shopping, games, social, office, travel, finance, etc.
