Huawei's new folding phone costs as much as a used car and still doesn't have a real app store

Huawei's new folding phone costs as much as a used car and still doesn't have a real app store

Huawei announced its next-gen foldable, the Mate X2, in China today. The phone features an inward-folding design, in stark contrast to the original Mate X, whose display wrapped around it. In other words, it finally adopts the design approach that Samsung has stuck with since the original Galaxy Fold — a wise decision given how fragile flexible panels are. What may prove to be quite a bit less wise, though, is how much Huawei wants you to pay for its phone.

Huawei may have realized it's doing folding screens backwards, could switch to inward fold for the Mate X2

Huawei may have realized it's doing folding screens backwards, could switch to inward fold for the Mate X2

Flexible screens are probably among the most delicate pieces of tech out in the real world, and Huawei’s decision to put one on the outside of its first foldable was surely a risky venture. With the follow-up Mate X2, the company will allegedly make an about-face and settle on an inward folding design, and the resulting device looks a lot like the Galaxy Z Fold2 in these leaked renders.

Huawei is set to launch its next foldable, the Mate X2, on February 22

Huawei created a furor among visitors at CES 2019 when it showcased its upcoming foldable phone that admittedly looked more futuristic than the prototype Samsung had shown. A lot has changed, however, between then and now. While the South Korean giant is now making the finest foldables on the market, its Chinese rival has been crippled by the US trade ban. Huawei isn't giving up, though, and is set to launch its next folding phone —  the Mate X2 — later this month.

Huawei Mate X’s flexible display may avoid scratches thanks to a plastic polymer layer

Huawei Mate X’s flexible display may avoid scratches thanks to a plastic polymer layer

Huawei’s first foldable phone — the Mate X — may finally see the light of day this November 15 after a twice-deferred launch since June. The delays were partly in view of the company's trade hurdles concerning Android, and largely to make hardware refinements to avoid a Galaxy Fold-like recall. Huawei took this time to hone the Mate X’s out-folding display with a layer of transparent polyimide (PI), which should prevent the screen from scratching.

Huawei Mate X is supposedly being released in China this month

There has been much hype surrounding folding phones, and while the Samsung Galaxy Fold was almost launched, canceled at last minute, and then relaunched, the Huawei Mate X has been taking its sweet time. This is bound to change, as the company has confirmed that it's launching its own take on foldables in China this month, while a video showing off the device and its retail box has been making its rounds on Twitter.

Now, that release date has been pushed even further, according to TechRadar.

Huawei's Mate X is a $2600 foldable phone that looks like it's from the future

Huawei's Mate X is a $2600 foldable phone that looks like it's from the future

By holding its event ahead of Mobile World Congress (MWC) for the first time in a few years, Samsung ensured maximum hype surrounding the announcement of the Samsung Galaxy Fold. Some of that hype may have died down once the design and the $1,980 price tag came to light, but the general vibe is that it's nice to have an exciting new form-factor in what has become a relatively stale industry. As the press conferences from the other major tech companies get underway here in Barcelona, we expect to see a few more devices with flexible screens, and the first of those to be unveiled is the Huawei Mate X.
