Huawei's second-generation foldable smartphone, the Mate X2, features an inside-folding AMOLED display, a 8-inch 90Hz 2480 x 2200 one. There is also an external 6.45-inch 1160 x 2700 90Hz (240Hz touch sampling rate) AMOLED display.

Huawei says that the foldable screens adopts a "magnetically-controlled nano optical layer" to reduce reflection and glare (the company says reflectivity is <1.5%, compared to >5% in the Galaxy Fold 2). The cover is plastic (and not UTG like in Samsung's latest displays). Huawei also developed a new hinge design and materials that enable the phone to be closed without a gap, while the OLED itself is not completely folded to minimize creasing.

Other features include a quad-camera setup, with a 10X periscope lens, a Kirin 9000 chipset, 8GB of RAM, 256/512 GB of storage, dual-SIM (or NM memory card) and 5G connectivity.

The Huawei mate X2 will ship in China in February 25, starting at 18,000 Yuan (almost $2,800).
