Huawei Mate Xs: Foldable smartphone presented for 2.500 euros
Huawei also held a press conference today as part of the actual MWC 2020, at which the Huawei Mate Xs was shown. In addition to some other devices, this is the successor to the Huawei Mate X presented.
Last year, the Huawei Mate X was shown at MWC 2019. Back then, that was the first foldable smartphone from Huawei. However, this has never actually been up for sale. A year later it is now time for the successor, which is said to have been revised in some aspects. But what has the manufacturer improved now?
Huawei Mate Xs: specifications
Once again, Huawei decided to fold the display outwards - not inwards. When closed, the displays have a diagonal of 6,6 inches or 6,38 inches - depending on which side you want to work with. When you open the device, the touchscreen measures a total of 8 inches diagonally.
The smartphone is powered by an in-house Kirin 990 (with 5G support). These support eight gigabytes of RAM and 512 gigabytes of memory. There are no Google apps, instead the apps come from Huawei's own AppGallery.
Huawei installed a total of four cameras, one of which is a TOF sensor, the second has a resolution of 40 megapixels (f / 1.8), another has a resolution of eight megapixels (telephoto, f / 2.4, optically stabilized) and the last one with 16 megapixels dissolves and is responsible for ultra-wide-angle photos.
Prices and availability
The new foldable Huawei smartphone should be available in Germany in March. The group wants to call for 2.499 euros from China.
