Huawei released a new generation of folding screen flagship Huawei Mate X2 on February 22 , which is also the true second generation of Huawei folding screen products. As a new generation of products, Huawei Mate X2 has also undergone earth-shaking changes in design. Both the inwardly folded design and the wedge-shaped structure are refreshing. Next, let’s take a look at how Huawei Mate X2 interprets the flagship folding screen.
In my opinion, the biggest upgrade of Huawei Mate X2 this time is the design and screen. The first impression I got from Huawei Mate X2 was that it was very neat. The Huawei Mate X2, which uses an in-fold design, is still as flat as its predecessor. In the past, the folding screen phones with internal folding design that we have seen will have a relatively large gap after folding, which is prone to dust or wear.
Huawei Mate X2 uses a double-wedge design. After closing the screen, the whole device is very flat. Because the wedge-shaped design allows the phone to be folded, there is almost no gap between the two areas. The wedge-shaped structure allows the phone to be folded. The body is more organized. Moreover, the redesigned double-rotating water drop hinge structure, after being folded, the screen will form a water drop-like shape, making the screen bend more natural and achieving “micro marks”. From the actual experience, the traces of the folding screen are very subtle, and you can hardly find it if you don’t look closely.
At the same time, the wedge-shaped design also makes the phone in a state of thin left and thick right when unfolded, so that the center of gravity of the phone is on the right side of the fuselage. When the phone is held in the right hand, the center of gravity is on the hand. It is very comfortable to hold the phone with both hands.
Such a design with one side thick and one side thin also allows more space on the thick side to accommodate components, so Huawei Mate X2 has upgraded the camera again, and a better and larger camera unit can also be placed in the fuselage. .
Dual screens inside and outside, great experience in both sizes
Due to the internal folding design, Huawei Mate X2 has dual internal and external screens. The external screen is a 6.45-inch OLED screen, and the internal screen is an 8-inch screen with a screen ratio of 8:7.1, and both screens are It uses a high refresh rate of 90Hz and a touch sampling rate of 180Hz to meet everyone’s needs for a high refresh rate.
From the actual experience point of view, the overall experience of the external screen is better than the previous half-screen display with the external folding design, and such a 6.45-inch screen is the same as the experience of a normal mobile phone in use, except that it will be better than a normal mobile phone. The product is heavier and the other performances are very good.
There are also some friends around who use folding screen phones. According to their feedback, in daily use, the external screen is still used in the folded state more often. Therefore, the quality and experience of this external screen will be upgraded. The user experience of Huawei Mate X2 is even better.
At the same time, when we want to have a larger field of view, we can have an 8-inch super-large screen experience by unfolding the folding screen. This is also the biggest advantage of a folding screen mobile phone. It can experience the same large-screen experience as a tablet computer in square inches.
The internal screen ratio of Huawei Mate X2 is 8:7.1, which is close to a square, and the screen display area is larger. Moreover, in the case of left and right split screens, the 8:7.1 screen will become two screens close to 20:9, which is equivalent to Using two mobile phones at the same time improves the split-screen multitasking experience of the mobile phone.
Here we have to say that Huawei has optimized the multi-tasking for Huawei Mate X2 at the software level, and the smart multi-window has more than doubled the use efficiency of Huawei Mate X2. The first is that a whole screen can be split left and right, and two applications can be opened at the same time. For example, you can open documents for comparison while communicating through social software.
Multitasking also has more ways, such as preview floating window, drag and drop sharing, single application multitasking and so on. For example, if we want to share files through WeChat, we can directly drag and drop photos to WeChat for transmission, and perform cross-application operations.
These software upgrades are also one of the most impressive aspects of Huawei Mate X2. The appearance of the folding screen is to bring us a larger display effect on the basis of portability, and the optimization of the software brings a better large screen. Experience, this is one of the reasons why Huawei Mate X2 can become the best folding screen product to experience.
Super perceptual four-shot, top-level photo performance
Huawei’s achievements in imaging are obvious to all. This time, Huawei Mate X2 still uses the most powerful imaging system.
For the front camera, Huawei Mate X2 uses a 16-megapixel camera with a hole-digging design in the upper left corner of the external screen. The rear camera is a combination of 50 million pixel super-sensing main camera + 16 million pixel ultra wide-angle camera + 8 million pixel 10x ultra-telephoto lens + 12 million pixel telephoto lens, which may be the strongest camera combination at present .
We have already experienced this 50-megapixel super-sensing lens for the main camera on the previous Mate40 series. It can be said to be one of the most powerful sensors in the mobile phone camera module. Whether in the case of sufficient light or in the dark at night, it has a very good photo performance.
What surprises me most is this 10x ultra-telephoto lens. The periscope structure can be installed in a large enough mobile phone space. The actual effect is very good. The quality of the picture taken under the 10x optical zoom lens is almost the same as the performance of the main camera, and it is already at a usable level. It can be imagined that any 10x zoom camera lens already has a huge volume, and it is very difficult to be able to accommodate a 10x zoom lens in the space of a mobile phone.
The folding screen design also brings a new experience in taking pictures. First of all, when the screen is folded, the picture of the whole phone is similar to that of ordinary products. After unfolding the screen, because the internal screen does not have a camera, the Selfie is to flip the screen and use the external screen and the rear camera. This brings an advantage. You can use the rear high-quality camera to take self-portraits, and the effect will be even better.
Kirin 9000, outstanding performance
In terms of configuration, as a flagship-level folding screen mobile phone, performance is also a flagship-level performance.
Huawei Mate X2 is equipped with the most powerful Kirin 9000 chip, which is also the first 5G Soc with 5nm process on the market. We have already introduced the strength of this chip in the previous Mate40 Pro evaluation and corresponding evaluation articles.
Naturally, we still have to run a score test to get the new phone. The score of Huawei Mate X2 on Antutu is 630,000. This is the result of running without the performance mode, which is the result of normal use when we got the hand. , Is already at the top level, and the daily various games are naturally not a problem.
Since Huawei Mate X2 has two screens with different ratios, the actual areas displayed when playing games are also different. When using the internal screen to play “Glory of the King”, the display area is reduced on the left and right sides.
In another game “Peace Elite”, the screen is displayed on the inner screen much larger than the outer screen, which means that it can have more views of the upper and lower sides than ordinary mobile phones, which has a lot of advantages in the game.
Still awesome battery life and system performance
In terms of battery life, Huawei Mate X2 has a built-in 4500mAh battery to ensure the phone’s battery life experience. According to the actual measurement, the performance of the internal screen and external screen display is basically the same in terms of battery life, and the power consumption of one-hour video online watching is about 8%.
In terms of charging, Huawei Mate X2 is equipped with a 66W fast charging charger, but the mobile phone supports 55W flash charging. It can be charged from a complete shutdown to nearly 80% in 30 minutes. The charging performance is also very impressive.
Huawei Mate X2 is equipped with the latest EMUI 11 system, which is also a further improved generation system. On the one hand, it is the interaction and use optimization for large-screen products we mentioned above. On the other hand, it also brings more youthfulness and The UI interface with a sense of design, for example, when we open the screen, there will be an animation effect of the screen unfolding, which is very sensible. The optimization of these subtleties also frees the Huawei EMUI system from the “Science and Technology Male” impression given to us before and becomes more emotional.
Huawei Mate X2: It may be the optimal solution for the folding screen . Huawei Mate X2, as a new generation flagship folding screen product launched by Huawei, may have given the best solution in its current performance. The powerful performance of Kirin 9000 and the top image capability of the rear super-sensing four-shot have laid a very high foundation. The new design of the internal screen + external screen folding screen not only brings the excellent performance of the combination of large and small screens from the hardware, but also brings better interaction and user experience from the software level. Whether it is the daily use of external screens, or the pursuit of large screens and the pursuit of efficiency, the use of internal screens has a good performance. If you want to experience a folding screen mobile phone, then Huawei Mate X2 is currently the best choice.
