We have already written more than once that Huawei is working on a new generation of foldable smartphone Mate X, but unfortunately, it is definitely not worth waiting for a new product in the near future.

What is known

According to information Display Supply Chain Consultants founder Ross Young, Huawei was set to reveal the Mate X2 later this year, but the announcement of the device was delayed until 2021. Naturally, the US sanctions are to blame. Because of them, the Chinese manufacturer lost the supply of many components. For example, Samsung AMOLED panels. According to rumors, they were supposed to be used in a new folding device. In addition, since September 15, Huawei will end cooperation with TSMC, which previously was engaged in the creation of all proprietary processors of the company. By the way, due to the sanctions, Huawei has postponed global sales of the flagship line of smartphones Huawei Mate 40, although the announcement of new products will take place on schedule.

Recall, according to leaks, Huawei Mate X2 is codenamed Teton. The device is credited with a plastic screen (CPI) instead of ultra-thin glass (UTG) and looks like the Galaxy Z Fold 2. That is, unlike the Mate X and Mate Xs, the novelty will have two displays: the main one and an additional one on the outside.
