Huawei Mate X2

Huawei has launched its foldable Mate X2. The device features a new design language that is vastly different from its predecessor. It comes with an inward-folding design rather than featuring the outward-folding design found on the Mate X and Mate Xs. It features flagship specifications, and there is no camera on the inner display, which makes it a full-screen display. There is no notch or hindering substance on the inside when compared to the punch-hole cutout on the front.
