Huawei Mate X2 Design and Screen(s)

As for design, the Huawei Mate X2 pioneered a dual-wedge integrated design. The first center of gravity offset design creates a new balance with asymmetry.

In addition, the Huawei Mate X2 uses the industry’s unique double-rotating water drop hinge, which not only achieves a seamless folding, but also ensures minimal bending marks, making the unfolded screen smoother.

The 8-inch folding screen has an 8:7.1 golden ratio. The inner screen is 6.45 inches. It’s the industry’s first magnetron nano-optical film with ultra-low screen reflectivity.

The phone has a double-rotating drop hinge. Five years of technical development cleverly realizes seamless micro-mark folding. This hinge uses carbon fiber composite materials, zirconium-based liquid metal and >2100MPa super-strength steel. The strength of the material is higher than that of high-safety car B-pillars.
