This device features an 8-inch OLED display that can fold outwards to form a 6.6-inch main display as well as a 6.38-inch rear display. The screen is covered by plastic to protect the panels and is secured with a push-button latch when closed.
It’s powered by a Kirin 980 CPU and has 8GB of RAM, along with with 512 GB of UFS 2.1 internal storage (expandable up to 256GB using Huawei’s proprietary Nano Memory). For a device like this, you’ll need lots of power, and that’s why it has two batteries split between the two halves for a combined 4500 mAh capacity, which can be quick charged at 55W. The smartphone has four cameras, a USB-C port on the bottom, and a four camera setup including a 40 MP main sensor, a 16 MP wide-angle sensor, an 8 MP telephoto sensor as well as a time-of-flight sensor.
