Huawei will launch its Mate X series of folding smartphones next year, still without Google services

In February, Huawei officially launched the Mate X foldable smartphone at MWC 2019 and is also a counterweight to Samsung's Galaxy Fold. However, this model was delayed for various reasons and until October, it was opened for sale in China and sold out, but soon after the ink flow screen error.

Recently, Huawei CEO Richard Yu said the new Mate X model will launch next year. In addition, some leaks suggest that the company will launch the new Mate X model next year.

In an interview with Frandroid, Huawei CEO Richard Yu said that the company is retesting and reinforcing the Mate X model currently sold in China. The new Mate X model, expected to be called Mate Xs will run Kirin 990 chip.

Moreover, Mate Xs will have a reinforced screen and a redesigned hinge to make the device overall more durable. With these changes, Yu said Huawei will launch Mate Xs at MWC 2020 in the capital Barcelona, ​​Spain.

However, this Mate Xs model appeared on China's CCC agency with model number TAH-AN00m, codenamed Tahiti or TAH and the only obvious improvement revealed was the ability to charge up to 20V / 3.25 A (65W).

Hence, 65W charging capability is expected to appear on the upcoming Huawei P40 series and it will also be one of the purposeful features on the Mate Xs. On the other hand, Mate X model only supports 55W charging.

Yu said in the interview that Huawei Mate X could launch internationally in the first quarter of 2020. It is unclear if Mr. Yu is referring to the launch of the Mate Xs version, or if the older variant is currently running on the chip. Kirin 980.

However, Huawei is currently banned from using Google services, so when Mate X or Mate Xs is launched globally, Huawei must find ways to overcome and convince that its services are good enough for users to implement.

According to Twitter account Teme (特米), the Chinese manufacturer is expected to announce Huawei Mate X2 in the third quarter of 2020. The device is said to have a similar design to the Galaxy Fold, including a large screen. and a smaller external screen for selfies and quick access to notifications.

The Huawei Mate X2 will run on the Kirin 1000 chip on the 5nm process and is expected to debut at IFA 2020 in September. It may be smaller than the Mate X and easily pocketed like the Galaxy Fold.

Citing sources from Taiwan's supply chain, Digitimes said Huawei has begun planning the next-generation Mate X. A number of Chinese hinge and control panel suppliers have begun experimenting with small volumes, and are preparing to expand capacity.

However, more complex parts, including flexible folding panels or hinges will not be delivered to Huawei assembly partners until the second half of 2020 due to complex manufacturing processes and testing. Therefore, the device will not appear until the end of next year.

Earlier, Huawei submitted to the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) an invention describing an upside-down device with a stylus, and this may be the design that Huawei has for Mate X2.

Interestingly, this patent completely reverses the rumor above that Mate X2 will design similarly to the Galaxy Fold. So, even though Huawei has applied for various patent designs, we will never know the actual design will be used for Mate X2 until something specific appears on the internet ( like leaks, photo renders, ....) near the launch date.

Mate X2 will have a powerful configuration with 12GB RAM, 512 GB ROM, camera like on Mate 30 series and large battery capacity, support fast charging and wireless charging. Finally, the device will still not have Google services because it was on the list of entities signed by the administration of US President Donald J. Trump in May this year.
