Huawei Mate X2 Dual Hole-Punch Selfie Cameras Confirmed to Come With Kirin 9000 SoC, Alleged Render Show

Huawei Mate X2 will be launched on February 22 in China.

The Huawei Mate X2 will be powered by the Kirin 9000 SoC, as confirmed by the company via its official Weibo account. The news comes a few hours after the Chinese tech giant revealed the foldable smartphone’s launch date. Huawei Mate X2 is a successor to the Samsung Galaxy Fold Huawei Mate X that was launched in 2019 to compete with it. The Chinese microblogging website also leaked an alleged rendering of the forthcoming smartphone. They display the setup of a dual front camera and an inward-folding design.

Huawei confirmed that the Mate X2 will come equipped with the Exynos 9000 SoC, confirming rumours about the smartphone’s chipset. The Chinese firm has not yet provided any further details about the foldable handset specifications. The launch date of Huawei Mate X2 is set for February 22, which Huawei revealed via a Weibo teaser.

Similar to the original Samsung Galaxy Fold and Galaxy Z Fold 2, the Huawei Mate X2 teaser poster suggested that, unlike Huawei Mate X, this handset will have an inward-folding design. To enable inward folding, Huawei is expected to use a new hinge. In the rendering leaked by the Weibo tipster Digital Chat Station, this development is also suggested.
