Here is a complete review for the HUAWEI Mate X2 that was announced by HUAWEI Consumer Business Group on the 23rd February 2021 in Dubai, UAE. This new-generation foldable flagship smartphone unfolds all the latest and exciting experiences with a brand-new Falcon Wing Design. Thus, introducing new policies in the area of mobile technology. Not just the Falcon Wing Design, but also many new unfolding experiences that you will come across in this review. Without further ado, let’s dive into this review for the HUAWEI Mate X2 in UAE. But first, take a deep breath.
The HUAWEI Mate X2 features an all-new compact design with an intentionally shifted point of balance. Regardless of whether it is folded or not, The HUAWEI Mate X2 handles exceptionally. The unfolded display is one of the largest in the industry. Thereby offering a consistent user experience across the two forms. As a matter of fact, the HUAWEI Mate X2 unfolds elegantly into a flat display. It folds to perfection into a compact form factor without any flaw. A big thanks to the steel of high-strength and the carbon fibre composite chassis. These make the HUAWEI Mate X2 light yet robust.
The Ultra Vision Leica Quad Camera, blazing fast Kirin 9000 5G chipset and powerful dual-speaker stereo sound system combined together make the HUAWEI Mate X2 represent some of the best technologies that the industry has to offer. Richard Yu, Executive Director and Chief Executive Officer of HUAWEI Consumer BG said the following. The HUAWEI Mate X2 exemplifies a giant leap forward and establishes the desired level of competence or quality required for foldable devices of the future. In other words, this device met the expectations that were required.
The HUAWEI Mate X2 has achieved this with some of the best hardware and software innovations at its core. Despite the fact that the HUAWEI Mate Xs was largely considered as the best-in-class foldable device to a great extent. Richard Yu also mentioned that they continued to find new ways for further improvement of the foldable experience. The hinge utilises a multi-dimensional interlocking mechanism. When folded, it produces a near-seamless fold. With pioneering innovations and a truly amazing user experience across the board, the HUAWEI Mate X2 represents the future of smartphone technology.
Falcon Wing Design
Beauty that belies sophistication! Very impressive, isn’t it? The seamless foldable design of the HUAWEI Mate X2 folds flawlessly into a compact shape that too with smooth corners all around. On the other hand, when unfolded, its rear side is slopy. This makes the device as thin as 4.4 mm3 on one end. Regardless of whether it is unfolded or closed, it is perfectly balanced as the point of balance is shifted slightly away from the centre of the device. The flexible inner display of this device measures 8 inches diagonally which is one of the largest of its kind. To add to this is its dual-screen design.
Apart from this, the HUAWEI Mate X2 also introduces a magnetically controlled nano-optical layer that you will see in this review for UAE. This minimises reflection. Moreover, this device works smoothly and continuously with the 6.45-inch OLED display on the outside. Both the displays feature a super high resolution, a refresh rate of 90 Hz and a high touch sample rate to offer its users a consistent experience as they switch from one mode to another. Apart from this, the HUAWEI Mate X2 is an elegantly engineered smartphone when it is folded. Another good thing is that the aspect ratio of the outer display’s 21:9 which makes it compatible with most of the mainstream apps.
On unfolding, this device expands and transforms into a broad, wide and smart one with the golden aspect ratio of 8:7.1 which in turn offers an impactful and more immersive visual experience regardless of whether it is held vertically or horizontally. The HUAWEI Mate X2 has hidden another industry-first innovation underneath its minimalist appearance. This innovation is none other than an intricate Multi-Dimensional Hinge on which HUAWEI spent over 5 years to perfect it. The multi-dimensional hinge creates a water drop-like cavity through a multi-dimensional interlocking mechanism for putting the display away when the device is folded.
This enables the device to fold perfectly with a gap that is too small to be seen or noticed and it also minimises the crease on the outer screen when the device is not folded. Also, the openings along the sides are hidden to prevent dirt and dust from entering the system and also possibly damaging the screen.
Unfolding New Experiences
The HUAWEI Mate X2 offers the best of both worlds that too with two displays. The larger display offers a broad and extensive area whereas the foldable nature of this device maximises portability. Leveraging wide and in-depth research on human factors, HUAWEI has designed the foldable form factor from the ground then up to support the unique smart experiences. From browsing the internet and completing all your productivity tasks in the office to online gaming, online shopping and the consumption of media at home, the HUAWEI Mate X2 delivers incredibly immersive experiences.
After getting inspired by the “long-take” camera technique, HUAWEI made the user interface transition effects more responsive and smoother on the HUAWEI Mate X2. Further, the exclusive dynamic theme elevates the unfolding experience. So, whenever the users (every single time) open up the HUAWEI Mate X2, it features a bed of flowers that bloom. Amazing right? To add to the large display of this device is a suite of smart features that are designed around multitasking. Moreover, the users can multitask effectively on a single display also with the Floating Window, App Bubble, Smart Multi-Window, App Multiplier and more.
Multi-window enables the users to preview the content rapidly on another app. The best part is that it allows you to do this without minimising the active app. For instance, you can open a hyperlink on Notepad or you can preview an email attachment on the Email app. App Multiplier is something that lets the users open multiple instances of a single app like Notepad. This comes in handy in situations when you want to reference another document saved in apps. You can share content between contacts rapidly. You can do this through MeeTime and besides being quick it is also easy since you can drag the files onto the chat interface without any limitation on file size, format, or quantity.
Besides being resizable, Active Floating Windows can also be stowed into the App Bubble. Additionally, they can also replace any active Multi-Window at any particular time. Regardless of whether you need a smartphone for your work needs, study purpose, or shopping and entertainment. Then, don’t fret, the HUAWEI Mate X2 is what you need to purchase as it meets all your needs.
