Huawei’s new foldable phone Mate Xs comes with improved Hinge, more durable build
Huawei was set to announce a foldable phone at MWC but the event got canceled. So, the company did an online event to announced a few devices it wanted to announce at MWC. The first and most exciting device is Huawei Mate Xs. Huawei Mate Xs is the successor to Mate X that was announced last year. This new foldable phone comes with a more durable display and a faster processor.
Huawei Mate Xs features a 6.6-inch (2480 x 1148 pixels) display at the front and a 6.38-inch (2480 x 892 pixels) OLED display on the back. When the phone is unfolded, both the display combines to offer an 8-inch (2480 x 2200 pixels) OLED 8:7.1 display. See the photo below to have an idea of how this folding phone looks.
Huawei has used the quad-layer construction for the display to make it more robust. Above the flexible OLED display, there are two layers of a polyamide film. The phone has an all-plastic construction. The improved hinge should feel smoother and more durable as compared to predecessor Huawei Mate X.
The phone packs Kirin 990 5G processor with ARM Mali-G76MP16 GPU. It also has Dual Big Core + Tiny Core NPU. Mate Xs packs 8GB RAM and 512GB storage with an option to expand storage up to 256GB. The phone runs on Android 10 with EMUI 10.0.1.
