Huawei still has their hat in the smartphone ring and announced their latest foldable flagship phone, the Huawei Mate X2 which has an inwards folding hinge design and both a foldable display and an outwards facing touchscreen, a design somewhat akin to the Samsung Galaxy Fold unlike the outwards folding Mate Xs and Mate X that was glimpsed awhile back.

The Huawei Mate X2 is constructed of steel and carbon fiber composite to create a durable and light chassis with what they call a ‘Falcon Wing’ design with a combined thickness that’s about 4.4mm thin at its thinnest point.
