Based on the teaser, Huawei could be going with a different foldable design for the Mate X2, as the original Mate X came with a foldable display that folded outwards that left the display exposed on both sides. The teaser image doesn't indicate much about the phone but the company had earlier confirmed that the Huawei Mate X2 would be powered by the Kirin 9000 chipset. According to a report by GSMArena, the smartphone might come with a 66 W fast charging wired technology.

Given the Huawei Mate 40 Pro phone that gets fast wireless charging, the Mate X2 might as well get the 50W wireless charging technology.

The poster of the device comes accompanied by a famous Albert Einstein quote “Knowledge is limited, imagination embraces the entire world”. The bottom text on the other hand reads “Huawei Mate X2 in a new body” which points to the fact that the device could sport a new form factor.

The launch will be taking place in China and we could hope for a global launch to follow up soon.
