Unboxing Huawei Mate X2

In these depressing Covid times, it is not unusual for one to look for some source of inspiration—and it looks like Huawei has one.

If you have eyes that are microscopic for beauty then the Huawei Mate X2 is yours to behold. It is a smartphone/tablet combo. The tech world calls such a foldable smartphone.

Huawei Mate X2 is a 6.45 inches phone that willfully morphs into an 8-inch tablet when you open it as you would with a paper book.

Imagine for a moment watching Ketura’s Udzandi tengereclipon Huawei Mates X2’s smartphone mode, mistake the gadget for a DVD cover and wide-open it, and behold, the video displays in a pleasantly larger viewable mode.

Huawei Mate X2 is powered by an octa-core Huawei 9000 chip and 24- core Mali-G78 graphics processor. In English, we are talking about computer power enough to drive servers for scientific research of yesterday.

The foldable phone runs EMUI II operating system software, a variant of Android 10.

It has enviable 8GB RAM and you can opt for either 256 GB or 512 GB storage capacity.

Borrowing a leaf from Samsung, Huawei has ‘flooded’ the Mate X2 with four rear cameras; a 50 MP wide angle, 16 MP ultra-wide angle, 12 MP telephoto and an 8 MP superzoom.

The front selfie camera is very impressive. It is a 16 MP wide angle. I have always questioned the design philosophy that places a less-serious camera on the front of a smartphone. That seems to suggest that a selfie is less important than the pictures you take for other people.

One lady told me that such designs are done by male engineers who do not understand t h e psychology of women and hinted that it is actually amounts to ‘violence’ against women.

Huawei Mate X2 is a 5G ready phone. That probably means nothing for Malawi because we do not have 5G network yet. However, if you globetrot, that may be an advantage as you will be able to enjoy the 5G networks that the west have already deployed.

The Phone has enough battery juice, 4500 mAh. The flipside is that it is a fixed battery, you cannot remove it.

There are several foldable phones on the market; Flexpai, Samsung Fold2 and Microsoft Surface Duo. What makes Huawei Mate X2 stand out? Huawei Mate X2’s display is as good as any premium phone’s.

Above everything else, Huawei did not compromise on its chip, RAM and storage. It has more cameras than you will ever need. All I am trying to say is that it is a very powerful foldable phone ever created.
