Exclusive: our first hands-on look with the new Huawei Mate X2 foldable phone Huawei Mate X2

Even after losing access to key partners and eventually having to withdraw from some markets, Huawei hasn’t really slowed down with hardware innovations. In case you’re curious to see how far the latest Huawei Mate X2 has come, here are some exclusive images and video of the foldable in action, from the MWC Shanghai show floor.

Unveiled on February 22, the Huawei Mate X2 will be available in China from February 25, with no word on global availability. With a starting price of CNY 17,999 (roughly $2,785 / £2,000 / AU$3,500 /Rs 2 lac) for the 256GB model, it is a supremely premium offering, with the 512GB model raising that price tag to CNY 18,999.
