On February 22, Huawei released a new generation of folding flagship Huawei Mate X2, the trinity of top hardware, innovative interaction, and application ecology, defining the industry standard for folding flagships. “This will be a huge leap for folding screen mobile phones, refreshing our expectations for folding screen phones.” said Yu Chengdong, managing director and CEO of Huawei’s consumer business. “Our folding screen is the flagship performance, flagship specifications, flagship configuration, and will not sacrifice the experience of the flagship machine because of the folding screen.”
Top hardware, thousands of technologies hidden in the eagle wing folding
Since the advent of folding screen mobile phones, the gaps left when closed, the creases left after unfolding, and non-abrasion resistance and bumping have not only plagued major mobile phone brands, but also discouraged many consumers from folding screen products. As Huawei’s third-generation folding screen flagship mobile phone, Huawei Mate X2, it not only achieves a seamless fit when folded inward, but also smoothes screen creases to the greatest extent when unfolded, and at the same time, it also prevents the bumps of folding screen phones , The wear resistance level is raised to a new level.
The concise appearance hides the ultimate precision craftsmanship. After five years of technical conquests, Huawei Mate X2 finally adopts the industry’s unique double-rotating water drop hinge. Through the multi-dimensional phase control linkage mechanism, a water drop-like volume is formed at the bend. The screen space not only realizes the seamless folding, but also ensures the flatness of the screen after unfolding. The hinge system uses a variety of high-precision special materials and special manufacturing processes. In addition to zirconium-based liquid metal, Huawei mobile phones have introduced super-strength steel materials for the first time, which can resist impact and deformation. At the same time, carbon fiber composite materials are added to ensure lightness while at the same time. Achieved high strength, making Huawei Mate X2 more reliable and durable. Hidden opening and closing designs are also used on both sides of the hinge to prevent foreign objects from entering and prevent screen damage.
Innovative interaction, reshaping the experience of using folding screen phones
In the unfolded state, an 8-inch immersive large screen with a golden ratio of 8:7.1, whether it is horizontal or vertical, can have a wider field of vision, bringing a more immersive and shocking visual perception. In the folded state, Huawei Mate X2 does not only use the external screen as a secondary display for information display, but also brings the experience of using a flagship candy bar phone. The 6.45-inch full screen has a 21:9 mainstream display ratio, and the application does not need additional adaptation. Ready to use.
With its 8-inch large screen, Huawei Mate X2 is upgraded to a more comprehensive “smart multi-window” experience on the basis of smart split screen. Preview floating windows, single application multi-tasking, drag-and-drop sharing, and floating storage design allow users to operate Time is more convenient and efficient, allowing you to do multiple tasks in one screen.
Huawei Mate X2 supports multiple application split screens and floating windows at the same time. The size of the floating window can not only be adjusted according to user preferences, but also can be minimized as a floating ball. The two can be switched freely, allowing you to switch between mobile office and movie watching. Watching dramas, social sharing, reading and shopping, etc., can achieve multiple functions on one screen, and get twice the result with half the effort.
Bright stars, leading the application ecology of folding screen mobile phones
Huawei has always been committed to creating the ultimate folding screen experience. Since 2019, it has worked with the Software Green Alliance to establish the first folding screen ecological alliance, and has launched an increasingly complete folding development framework and design specifications. Up to now, domestic TOP200 applications have achieved 100% large-screen adaptation, and TOP1000 applications have achieved 95% large-screen adaptation. Reading, video, online shopping, games, social networking, office, travel, financial management and other scenarios have more extreme Use experience.
Huawei Mate X2 cooperates with Undercarriage and Anjuke to realize 3D panoramic car viewing and panoramic house viewing; cooperates with Fonghuashun to bring more comprehensive stock information display to help users make financial investment more efficiently; with Migu Video and Huawei Video cooperation, on the one hand, you can watch sports games from multiple perspectives, and on the other hand, you can watch multiple high-definition videos on the same screen; in cooperation with Youku, you can launch the industry’s first zoomable free perspective. You can slide your finger on the screen at will during video viewing Freely change the angle of view; cooperate with Baidu Maps and AutoNavi Maps to launch the industry’s first folding large-screen sub-meter lane navigation with larger field of view and higher accuracy.
Not all folding screen phones can be called folding flagships. The competition on the folding screen track has always been a competition of comprehensive experience. The new generation of folding flagship Huawei Mate X2, the trinity of top hardware, innovative interaction, and application ecology, defines the industry standard for folding flagships. At the press conference, managing director and CEO of Huawei’s consumer business, Yu Chengdong, also announced another “big news”: starting in April this year, Huawei’s flagship mobile phones can be upgraded to HarmonyOS, and Huawei Mate X2 will be the first batch of upgrades.
