Huawei is preparing a new smartphone with a foldable flexible screen, whose display will be provided by Samsung Display would go into production next month. After the Mate X and Mate Xs with a flexible foldable display placed on the external face of the device, the manufacturer Huawei is preparing to launch a new model during the second half of the year.
The Mate X 2 would offer a display of similar dimensions but this time placed inside the device, similar to Samsung’s Galaxy Fold / Galaxy Z Fold 2, and folding up like a book.
Details are still meager but it looks like Samsung Display is providing the flexible display. This would still offer an 8-inch diagonal at a resolution of 2480 x 2220 pixels and would use CPI (transparent polyimide) technology.
Production of the flexible display would begin in September, according to analyst Ross Young, for a delivery of 300,000 pieces during the third quarter.
A leaked image of the Huawei Mate X2 suggests that it could embed a small secondary display all in length on the edge containing the photo sensors. It would offer a configuration with four 40 + 40 + 12 photo sensors + ToF sensor providing ultra wide angle, x3 optical zoom and OIS image stabilization.
The smartphone would be offered with several memory configurations: 6/128, 8/256 and 12/512 GB, with a 6000 mAh battery and 65W fast charging, but all this remains to be confirmed.
