The Huawei Mate X2 will come with an in-ward folding display and it may also feature a cover display to interact while the device is folded. On the other hand, the first-gen Huawei Mate X and Xs come features an outfold display design.
Huawei Mate X2 will also have something called the laptop mode. It may split the screen (main), allowing users to write on the top and use the keyboard on the bottom.
Since the Huawei Mate X2 display is scheduled to go in production by September, the assembling of this new foldable may start by the end of this year, followed by the launch in March 2020 alongside the Huawei P50 series or maybe early.
Currently, Huawei has not announced any official dates of Huawei Mate X2.
