Huawei Mate X Foldable Phone’s Successor Launching in H2 2020

According to reports, Huawei will launch its next-generation Mate X folding phone in the second half of 2020. The company is reported to be working on the phone already, and small volume trial production of components has already begun. The Huawei Mate X was launched earlier this year, but availability was delayed until November to ensure satisfactory build quality. Samsung also had durability issues with its first foldable phone, and the Galaxy Fold successor is now expected to launch alongside the next Galaxy S series flagship in February this year.

A Digitimes report states that the next-generation Huawei Mate X foldable phone will be launched in H2 2020. This contrasts with a recent report that suggests that an improved version of the Mate X with Kirin 990 SoC is expected to be released at MWC 2020. He says this Mate X update has an improved design with a better hinge and a stronger screen as well. It could be possible that the report is talking about a suitable successor of the first folding telephone and not just an “improved version”. This is pure speculation on our part, and we expect more clarity as Huawei decides to make some announcements about its folding phone segment.

This informed release information was obtained from manufacturers in the Taiwan supply chain, and some suppliers have even started small-scale trial production of components for the next-generation foldable phone. The report does not detail the design changes or the great features of the next Huawei folding phone but notes that Taiwan suppliers see promising potential in the single segment next year. These suppliers have even started expansion projects for this purpose.

For example, hinge manufacturer Jarllytec seeks to install additional batch furnaces in 2020 that will help produce more metal injection moulding (MIM parts for folding phones. This company has partnered with two Chinese smartphone brands to produce hinges for their folding phones, hinting that more original equipment manufacturers can launch folding phones next year.

Realme X2 Pro features a 6.5-inch full-HD+ (1080×2400 pixels) Super AMOLED display with 20:9 aspect ratio and 90Hz refresh rate. It draws power from the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855+ octa-core SoC, coupled with up to 12GB of RAM and 256GB of onboard storage.

However, in our own tests, the Realme X2 Pro managed to charge the battery within 30 minutes, which is impressive given that the phone has a 4000mAh battery.

It is accompanied by a 13-megapixel telephoto lens, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle shooter, and a 2-megapixel depth sensor.
