Software, Chipset & Memory
It runs on Android 10 with EMUI 11 but it doesn’t include Google Play Services. It is powered by a powerful Kirin 9000 5G which has an octa-core CPU with a Mali-G78 MP24 GPU. The phone has an amazing 12 GB of RAM + 512 GB of internal storage which is pretty much more than enough for any office or fun activity such as gaming. On top of that, it also supports memory cards of up to 256 GB which pushes your storage capacity close to 1 TB.
The Huawei Mate X2 sports an extra camera compared to the Mate XS. The Mate X2 has a quad-camera setup at the rear with a 50 MP main camera, an 8 MP telephoto lens, a 16 MP ultrawide camera, and another 12 MP camera. Next to the cameras, there is a dual-LED dual-tone flash for shooting photos in low light areas. The camera can shoot 4K videos at 60 fps which is really great.
At the front, the flagship foldable phone has a single 16 MP selfie camera with no LED flash but can shoot 1080P videos at 30fps.
The battery on the Mate X2 is quite sizeable at 4400 mAh. It includes 66W fast charging support and a USB Type-C 3.1. The battery is non-removable which means it’s not user-replaceable. However, you might not need to replace it at all as Huawei Mate series batteries tend to have a long life.
