On February 22, Huawei held a new-generation folding flagship conference and released the new folding screen flagship smartphone Huawei Mate X2. The Huawei Mate X2 pioneered a dual-wedge integrated design, with a futuristic eagle wing folding form, powerful performance and top image strength, combined with innovative folding screen interaction and rich application ecology.
Looking back at history, when mankind looks up at the starry sky for the first time, it opens up the imagination of the unknown. It constantly turns the unknown into the known, and the illusion into reality. In 2019, Huawei released the first generation of folding screen Mate X, opening a new era of 5G folding screen smartphones. In 2020, Huawei released the second generation of folding screen Mate Xs, realizing the evolution of folding screen phones from hardware to ecology.
Not all folding screen phones we can call folding flagships. The competition on the folding screen track has always been a competition of comprehensive experience. Today, Huawei released a new generation of folding flagship Mate X2, the trinity of top hardware defining the industry standard for folding flagships. “This will be a huge leap for folding screen smartphones, refreshing our expectations for folding screen phones.” said Yu Chengdong, managing director and CEO of Huawei’s consumer business. “Our folding screen is the flagship performance, flagship specifications, flagship configuration. It will not sacrifice the experience of the flagship phone because of the folding screen. Innovation is our unchanging commitment. Huawei’s research and development and innovation on folding screen phones will not stop. We will provide consumers with various types of folding screens”.
Hidden thousands of technologies, reshape the folding form
The Huawei Mate X2 pioneered a double-wedge-shaped integrated design. It is new and sharp. After being folded, it fits tightly and perfectly. After unfolding, the fuselage presents a smooth and neat slope. The thinnest part is only 4.4 mm. The first center of gravity offset design, whether it is one-handed or two-handed, you can easily held. It is cleverly asymmetry to achieve a new balance.
The Huawei Mate X2 uses a dual-screen design inside and outside, featuring a 6.45-inch OLED screen on the outside and an 8-inch foldable flexible OLED screen on the inside. It is currently one of the largest folding screen smartphones in the industry. Huawei Mate X2 has ultra-high resolution (2480*2200 internal screen, 2710*1160 external screen) and ultra-high pixel density (413ppi internal screen, 456ppi external screen). And both adopt the full-process P3 wide color. Domain makes the screen color more real, delicate and natural. The dual-screen 90Hz high refresh rate and ultra-high touch sampling rate (180Hz for the inner screen and 240Hz for the outer screen) also make the display effect smoother and the touch interaction more precise.
industry’s first magnetron nano-optical film
Huawei Mate X2 is the industry’s first magnetron nano-optical film. The latter has an ultra-low screen reflectivity of less than 1.5%. In the unfolded state, there is no fear of screen reflections. The display effect is clearer in reading, video and game scenes. When the screen is off, the screen is more deeply integrated and more purely aesthetic.
In the unfolded state, an 8-inch immersive large screen with a golden ratio of 8:7.1, whether it is horizontal or vertical, can have a wider field of vision. At the same time, it brings a more immersive and shocking visual perception. In the folded state, Huawei Mate X2 does not only use the external screen as a secondary screen for information display, but also brings the experience of using a flagship candy bar phone. The 6.45-inch full screen has a 21:9 mainstream display ratio. Moreover, the application does not need additional adaptation. So, it is ready to use.
Industry’s unique double-rotating water drop hinge
The concise appearance hides the ultimate precision craftsmanship. After five years of technical conquests, Huawei Mate X2 finally adopts the industry’s unique double-rotating water drop hinge. Through the multi-dimensional phase control linkage mechanism, a water drop-like volume is formed at the bend. The screen space not only realizes the seamless folding, but also ensures the flatness of the screen after unfolding. The hinge system uses a variety of high-precision special materials and special manufacturing processes. In addition to zirconium-based liquid metal, Huawei smartphones have introduced super-strength steel materials for the first time. The latter can resist impact and deformation. At the same time, carbon fiber composite materials are added to ensure lightness. It makes Huawei Mate X2 more reliable and durable. Hidden opening and closing designs are also used on both sides of the hinge to prevent foreign objects from entering. On the other hand, it prevents screen from damage.
Innovative application interaction, the ultimate immersive experience
The large screen means a large field of view. Through the combination of human factor research and artistic design, the design of Huawei Mate X2 from the inside to the outside achieves a breakthrough in the visual boundary between opening and closing, making entertainment more efficient. It also brings better browsing, reading, movie watching, navigation, and gaming experience.
Huawei Mate X2 draws on the “one mirror to the end” shooting technique in the film industry, making every slide more user-friendly and smooth. Its exclusive dynamic theme brings an immersive and shocking screen opening experience. And the flowers on the screen follow every time. It unfolds once and then slowly blooms, as if the breeze is passing over the petals, gently swaying breath, making every opening and closing full of ritual.
“smart multi-window” experience
With its 8-inch large screen, Huawei Mate X2 is upgraded to a more comprehensive “smart multi-window” experience on the basis of smart split screen. Preview floating windows, single application multi-tasking, drag-and-drop sharing, and floating storage design allow users to operate time. So, it is more convenient and efficient, allowing you to do multiple tasks in one screen.
You can preview the floating window and quickly go directly to an application through the floating window without closing the main task, such as opening an attachment in an email, opening a website link in a memo, and quickly reaching it. You can also open multiple applications at the same time. A task, such as double open memo, WPS, Xunfei Yuji, etc., facilitates the comparison of documents and other content. It is convenient and efficient. By connecting messages, you only need to drag and drop to quickly share files and other content, breaking through the file size, quantity and form limitations. You can also use the Changlian APP chat interface to complete sharing.
Huawei Mate X2 supports multiple application split screens and floating windows at the same time. The user can not only adjust the size of the floating window according to your preferences, but also you can minimize as a floating ball. Moreover, you can swtich them freely, allowing you to switch between mobile office and movie watching. Watching dramas, social sharing, reading and shopping, etc. can achieve multiple functions on one screen. You’ll get twice the result with half the effort.
