Based on rumors, leaks and patent sketches, the portal LetsGoDigital developed renderings of the future Huawei Mate X2, Huawei's second folding cell phone. It's still just an idea of what the device will look like, but it's exciting enough.

To render the smartphone, the LetsGoDigital was based on the claim that the Huawei Mate X2 has two displays: a larger, foldable internal one, and an external one the size of conventional displays. So on the inside, the device has a flexible screen that folds like a book, while on the outside, the design makes the Huawei Mate X2 look like an ordinary smartphone.

In addition, the edges are narrow and the ratio of the displays to the device as a whole is very beneficial. In the only part without a screen, the design refers to the Huawei P40which has a set of three or four lenses for a powerful camera.
It is worth remembering that the renderings are based on hypotheses and that perhaps Huawei Mate X2 does not look exactly like what was described.
Possible features of Huawei's next fold
Also according to previous rumors and leaks, the Huawei Mate X2 will have the same 8-inch display used in both the Huawei Mate X as in Huawei Mate Xs. Another important piece of information is that the foldable must support laptop mode and split screen function, which together turn the smartphone into a true small notebook with touch keyboard and screen that will work separately when needed.
Since TSMC's Kirim 9000 processor can no longer be employed by Huawei in their devices - the Thai company stood by the United States in the trade war between the country and China -, it's still unclear which chip the Chinese will choose for her next folding smartphone.
As for the cameras, the Huawei Mate X2 should get a double front and a set of four rear lenses.
