Huawei launched the Mate X, its first foldable smartphone back in February 2019. The phone got succeeded by the Mate XS launched earlier this year, which received a few minor upgrades like a newly redesigned hinge, and a better processor. Now, according to some fresh leaks making rounds, Huawei is gearing up to launch a new foldable smartphone which will be called as the Huawei Mate X2. The phone recently appeared on the Wi-Fi Alliance certification website as well, which was first spotted by Digital Chat Station, a famous tipster on Weibo.
The smartphone got certified with the model number Huawei TET-NX9. The listing confirms that the Huawei Mate X2 will run on Android 10, with Huawei’s EMUI 11 UI on top. It will be Wi-Fi 6 compatible and will operate between 2.4GHz and 5GHz frequency bands. The website had no mention of other specifications of the smartphone. Thankfully, the tipster revealed a few of them. According to him, the phone will be powered by Huawei’s upcoming Kirin K9000 series processor, with built-in HiSilicon Hi1105 chipset. Also, the Huawei Mate X2 will be amongst the first smartphones to get the Wi-Fi 6+ support.
The phone’s design was also leaked in a patent listing a few days ago. In case you missed, have a look at the images below.
If these patents are to be believed, the phone’s form factor has been changed and now resembles that of the Samsung Galaxy Fold. Huawei hasn’t officially revealed anything about the smartphone yet, so take all this information with a grain of salt. Since the smartphone has already received Wi-Fi certification, we expect more information about it will be out in the coming days. Stay tuned with us for any future updates.
