The Huawei Mate X 2, likely a name to the successor of Huawei Mate X, could haul in the second half of 2020.
Despite ongoing rumors, the hardware aspects of this upcoming device are also unknown. However, DigiTimes asserts that the Taiwan-based part suppliers for Huawei have as of now commenced making small numbers of the display and the hinge for the device. But the parts don’t seem to go for the mass production up till H2 2020.
Also, the US trade ban versus Huawei resulted in several delays for the Mate X to make its appearance. Thus, it’s no surprise that the Mate X 2 might already be in the works.
Richard Yu, CEO of the Huawei Consumer Business Group lately said that a new Mate X version would make its appearance in March 2020. As claimed, the Mate XS, an upgraded version would ship with a Kirin 990 processor, a bettered hinge, and a screen with more resistance.
Again, he added that the device will be shown off in the Mobile World Congress 2020 trade show in February. Moreover, he stated that the Mate X could conceivably hit European markets in the first quarter of 2020. Whereas, it’s improbable that the device will ever make its way to the US market, with the unresolved concerns between Huawei and the US government.
