Double wedge integrated design, smart and practical

There has been no shortage of new technologies in the field of science and technology, and mobile phone products that are updated and iterated quickly have also been seeking innovation. Today, when the performance of mobile phones is becoming more and more saturated and the experience of each brand’s flagship is difficult to distinguish, more and more brands are focusing on the form of the product. “Folding screen” mobile phones also came into being in this context.

Prior to this, brands such as Huawei, Samsung, Xiaomi, and moto have all launched their own folding full-screen products. They all have their own characteristics, but as the first batch of products to open a new era of folding screens, they all have certain defects. Fortunately, the arrival of Huawei Mate X2 is likely to change this. As early as the warm-up stage, Yu Chengdong threatened to “exhibit” his imagination and bring everyone the flagship folding screen mobile phone that leads the new form of smart phones in the future. This statement immediately attracted the attention of countless people. As a folding full-screen phone, what is unique about Huawei Mate X2? Today we will take you the first time to experience it.

At the product design level, Huawei made a lot of determination. The folding design was changed from the fold-out design of the previous two generations to the same internal fold design as the Samsung Galaxy Fold series. This was known before the press conference. What you don’t know is that this time Huawei Mate X2 jumped out of the frame of other brands inward folding design, adopting a double wedge-shaped one-piece design. After unfolding, the fuselage will present a smooth beveled surface, which gradually becomes thinner from right to left. , The thinnest part is only 4.4mm, and the fuselage will become a tightly fitted rectangle with equal height after folding.

A seemingly simple design, but after such a long period of precipitation, it came out. It is conceivable that the technology required behind it is by no means simple. Except for the flexible screen itself, the core part is naturally the hinge structure.

In official terms, it is to improve the hinge design regardless of cost. After five years of technical research, Mate X2 adopts an exclusive double-rotating drop hinge design. Through a multi-dimensional phase control linkage mechanism, a drop-shaped screen space is formed at the bend, thus not only Solve the problem of the body gap in the folded state, and also ensure the smallest screen creases.

Judging from the actual performance of the product, the flatness of the screen after unfolding the mobile phone is indeed the highest among the folding screen products I have seen so far. The so-called water drop-shaped screen space it uses is similar to the previous moto razr folding screen mobile phone. The solution is very similar. The difference is that Huawei’s handling is more careful and it can be seen that it is more technical. In the half-bend state like razr, the screen and the shaft will not appear hollow, which can also prevent dust from entering the body to a certain extent and causing internal damage.

And another advantage of this double-wedge integrated design is that it can balance the feel, and the center of gravity can be shifted after unfolding, so that you can have a very comfortable grip regardless of whether you hold it with one hand or with both hands. This feeling can be very easy People think of Kindle oasis. Although the Mate X2’s 295g weight is indeed a bit heavier, holding it with one hand after unfolding does give people the illusion of “it is not that heavy”, and the overall experience is still very affinity.

Even if you are a left-handed, you can still turn the screen to normal use. Perhaps the only thing you need to care about is the occlusion of the camera area by your left hand and the impact of sweat on the camera area. In short, you should wipe the lens often. Of course, if you have been accustomed to holding the phone with the unfolded screen with both hands, then you don’t need to think too much.

However, although Huawei Mate X2 is a folding screen product, I believe that when we use a mobile phone, most of the usage scenarios will still rely on the single screen after the mobile phone is folded. Although the thickness control of the mobile phone is very good under the dual-wedge integrated design, when it comes to daily use, the thickness of 14.7mm will give people a feeling of dreaming back to the Nokia era.

Another impression that Huawei Mate X2 brings to me is different from other folding screen products. It is solid enough, especially when the screen is closed, it seems that there is no need to worry about its durability. This is also due to Huawei’s excellent workmanship. On this basis, according to the official introduction, in order to ensure the durability and ease of use of the Mate X2 folding screen, higher requirements have been placed on the relevant body materials.

For example, the magnetron nano-optical film introduced above the screen, the carbon fiber and super steel used in a large area on the mobile phone components, the official even emphasized that the strength of the super steel in the hinge part reached 2100MPa, and the safest car VOLVO B pillar It is only 1400MPa.

Of course, although the Huawei Mate X2 does look very porcelain, I will not really test its strength. After all, the machine sold from 17,999 yuan, even if there is a small scratch, will make people feel painful.

Immersive panoramic dual screen 8:7.1 folding screen golden ratio

As for the screen, as the Mate X2 adopts a new internal folding design, in order to ensure the visual experience, both the external and internal screens are equipped with flexible OLED full screens (screen supplier to be determined), of which the external screen is 6.45 inches (resolution 2700* 1160 pixels), 21:9 display ratio, the screen-to-body ratio reaches 82.74%; the internal screen is an 8-inch immersive full screen (resolution 2480*2200 pixels), 8:7.1 display ratio to achieve the best visual experience, dual screens Both support a high refresh rate of 90Hz, a touch sampling rate of 180Hz for the internal screen, and a touch sampling rate of 240Hz for the external screen.

Regarding the effect of folding and unfolding, we have already mentioned it. The following mainly talks about the performance of the screen. With the blessing of high brush, although it does not reach the highest 120Hz on the market, the experience brought by 90Hz is also very good. When sliding the screen, it can bring a silky smooth effect. Friends who are used to swiping their phones should understand.

As for color display, Huawei has always had its own set of standards for its understanding of colors. The preset colors will be closer to reality. Friends who are accustomed to the gorgeous style screen may not be comfortable at first glance. If you feel that Huawei’s initial style is indeed too weak, you can also choose the bright mode in the settings, which is not a big problem.

In terms of the overall screen experience, the experience brought by Huawei Mate X2 is still very satisfying. The external screen is responsible for daily use, while the internal screen takes into account the extended experience. In particular, the panoramic dual screens of the internal screen bring vision without the influence of creases. The bonus is unmatched by other folding screen products at this stage.

Kirin 9000 blessing performance experience is not a problem

In terms of core hardware, Huawei Mate X2 is not unexpectedly equipped with the Kirin 9000 chip of the Mate 40 series. I will not repeat the function of this chip. It is currently the integrated 5G with the largest number of transistors, the highest integration and the most comprehensive performance. The SoC chip provides strong support for the overall performance of Mate X2.

Regrettably, Huawei Mate X2 comes standard with 8GB of running memory, whether it is 256GB or 512GB. As a flagship product, although this running memory is enough, after seeing products with 12GB or even 16GB running memory, it still feels a bit small. Especially after the screen is unfolded, it should be normal for Huawei Mate X2 to perform multi-tasking operations. It still depends on the running memory. I don’t know if it will be stretched after a period of use. I can only hope that Huawei’s system level optimization Up.

Compared with running scores, I believe that most users are still curious about the gameplay of the mobile phone and the screen adaptation after the unfolded screen, so this time I chose “Glory of the King” and “Peace Elite” which have a wider audience for mobile phones. In order to improve the experience, when folded, the display effect of the game is the same as that of a conventional mobile phone, but due to the longer screen ratio, the screen characters are smaller, but the field of view on the left and right sides of the screen is also enlarged. When the folding screen is unfolded, the picture on the screen can also be immediately adapted to the full screen.

However, it is worth noting that the screen ratio is 8:7.1 after the screen is expanded, which is relatively square, so if you want to adapt the game in full screen, you can only automatically adapt by simply taking screenshots on the left and right sides of the screen. Strangely, compared with “Glory of the King”, the large-screen adaptation experience of “Peace Elite” is better, but the vision on the left and right sides is inevitably missing than the traditional 16:9 mobile phone. It looks like it will be expanded. The screen is not very suitable for gaming.

However, in terms of game effects, the Huawei Mate X2 equipped with the Kirin 9000 processor naturally has no pressure. Whether it is a multiplayer or a single-player battle, the mobile phone has shown sufficient fluency, in the highest picture. , The frame rate is stable, and there will be no lag when playing for a long time. 8GB of running memory is enough to support the stability of multiple processes. Even if the game is switched back to the desktop in the middle of the game to reply to messages and other operations, the network will not be lost when switching back to the game again. Happening.

What’s pleasantly surprised is that after playing games for a period of time, the phone did not experience excessive heat, and it was still slightly higher than the hand temperature. From this point of view, Huawei Mate X2 is as good as the previous generation.

By the way, to talk about the signal, in order to ensure the signal performance of the whole machine, with the help of Huawei’s strength in the field of RF antennas and 5G communications, Mate X2 not only fully supports the network frequency bands of major operators, but also has the best dual card dual standby experience. For example, in the case of a secondary cartoon, the main card can also access the Internet via 5G. In addition, Mate X2 also pioneered a global smart antenna system, which can dynamically sense the changes in the signal and the folding state of the mobile phone, and automatically adjust the optimal signal transceiver antenna.

When it comes to signals, Huawei is always confident, and users who use Huawei mobile phones know that the performance of Huawei mobile phones in terms of signals has always been very satisfactory. Although we currently have no conditions to conduct in-depth tests on this, we believe that Huawei Mate X2 should not disappoint.

As for battery life, Huawei Mate X2 places a 4500mAh high-capacity battery inside the fuselage, supports super fast charging up to 55W, and cooperates with the low-power Kirin 9000 chip. Based on past experience, it is guaranteed to be moderately normal under full power. It is not a big problem to use the whole day.

Good adaptation of third-party applications, large-screen operation can indeed increase productivity

Regarding folding screen phones, in addition to many problems with the product itself, the core reason for users to wait and see is mainly the third-party app adaptation problem. In the press conference, the official stated that up to now, 100% of domestic TOP200 applications have achieved large-screen adaptation, and TOP1000 applications have also achieved 95% large-screen adaptation.

In the actual experience, I found that the apps we use daily, including Weibo, Baidu Maps, JD, Taobao, etc., have indeed been well adapted to the Huawei Mate X2, which can basically be used on the screen, even if not. With actively adapted applications, users can also adapt the App independently at the system level when entering for the first time, and the overall experience can still be guaranteed.

We know that the biggest advantage of the folding screen is that it is close to the large screen view of the Pad after unfolding. How to make good use of this large screen depends on the manufacturer’s UI interaction design capabilities. So in this regard, Huawei has started with Mate X and has made a lot of Kung Fu. Huawei Mate X2 introduces the smart multi-window function this time, adopting a new interactive design of multi-application + multi-tasking split screen + floating window, allowing users to run one program while running another or multiple programs, and also in different applications Realize drag sharing between.

At the same time, the parallel view function of Huawei Mate X2 has also been upgraded simultaneously, which can realize the dual-screen display of an application in the expanded state. Drag the “vertical bar” in the middle of the screen to freely adjust the split screen size. Of course, this requires an app. Adapt itself accordingly.

In order to make the most of this large screen, Huawei has also cooperated deeply with content platforms such as Yuchedi, Anjuke, Youku, and Baidu Maps this time to bring a targeted large-screen content experience. From the actual effect, the overall large-screen experience is still very good, especially the drag operation, which can indeed improve productivity to a certain extent.

As for the system, Huawei Mate X2 is currently equipped with EMUI 11, which is deeply optimized based on the Android 10 system. However, Huawei’s consumer business CEO Yu Chengdong also specifically revealed that from April this year, Huawei’s flagship phones will be upgraded to Hongmeng OS, Mate X2 will be the first batch of adapted and upgraded products, and everyone can look forward to it.
