Huawei Mate X2 announced with in-folding design, periscope camera

Huawei unveiled its latest foldable flagship, the Mate X2, and (as expected) it features an inward folding design. Interestingly, the phone is wedge shaped – it’s thickest near the camera module and it gradually slims down to just 4.4 mm on the other end. The camera end is the thickest part and for good reason – this is the first foldable phone with a periscope lens.

Let’s talk screens first. The inner display measures 8” in diagonal and has a squarish aspect ratio of 8:7.1 and a resolution of 2480 x 2200. The external screen is 6.45” in diagonal and has a 21:9 aspect ratio.
