Huawei will launch the Mate X2 on February 22. A rumor suggested the company is moving away from the outward fold and the new device will have an inward fold, and now a leaked teaser once again confirms it - Huawei will indeed adopt the design that Samsung Galaxy Fold initially brought to the world.

Huawei has posted a new teaser image for its forthcoming Mate X2 foldable phone and it seems to confirm that the display will be on the inside this time - much like rumours have suggested.
Based on the teaser, it looks like Huawei is going for a different foldable this time with the Mate X2. In the first Huawei Mate X the design was such that the phone folded outwards with the two displays on both sides. We still don’t have a good look though at the Mate X2 but with the launch only three days away we should see the foldable phone properly. Huawei has so far confirmed that the Mate X2 will be powered by the Kirin 9000 processor.
According to a tipster, the Huawei Mate X2 will feature a large display with dual selfie punch-hole cameras. The smartphone is also said to feature an 8.01-inch inward folding display, and a 6.45-inch secondary display. At the rear it could house four cameras with a 50-megapixel primary camera, a 16-megapixel secondary camera, a 12-megapixel camera, and an 8-megapixel camera.
Huawei is scheduled to launch the Mate X2 on February 22. The teaser image shared on Weibo shows the phone open from the side with an inward folding design. It looks similar to Samsung’s Galaxy Fold lineup. The Mate X2 has also been shown to highlight the timing of the event which is 8PM China time which would be 5:30 pm IST for viewers in India.
The launch is set to take place in China and we can only hope for a global launch to follow soon.
