Huawei launched its first foldable smartphone, Huawei Mate X, late last year, and this device has performed well locally as the company sold its available units faster than expected. Now, Huawei offered the new Huawei Mate Xs for sale for the first time in China.
Just as it happened with the original Huawei Mate X phone, the new Huawei Mate Xs ran out very quickly, and Huawei plans to sell the second batch of this phone on the eighth day of this month.
Huawei has not revealed to us the number of units it sold, but according to previous figures, the company has been able to sell about 100,000 units of the Huawei Mate X phone per month in China. We are quite sure that the current Huawei Mate Xs phone numbers will be the same, especially since Huawei kept the same price of $ 2,400 despite the fact that it supplied the Huawei Mate Xs phone with the latest HiSilicon Kirin 990 5G processor from the company and with a better joint with an improved cooling mechanism.
As a reminder, the new Huawei Mate Xs comes with the latest HiSilicon Kirin 990 5G processor from Huawei, an improved joint, and an improved cooling system, while the screen, cameras and overall design remained almost the same.
The new Huawei Mate Xs features a two-layer structure which gives additional power to the flexible OLED screen which still maintains an 8-inch size and 2480 x 2200 pixels. And when the phone is folded, you get a basic screen of 6.6 inches, while the back of the device has a long screen that you can use as a viewfinder for the front camera.
With regard to cameras, the Huawei Mate XS has been equipped with three cameras that feature the primary camera with a accuracy of 40 megapixels, while the wide-angle camera has a accuracy of 16 megapixels and the telephoto camera with an accuracy of 8 megapixels, note that the latter supports the image stabilization technology OIS. Moreover, an additional camera is a Time Of Flight camera to sense depth information.
Inside, the new Huawei Mate Xs phone was supplied with a new Falcon Wing joint, Huawei says it should be more powerful. It looks a little better, but it still displays crease on the screen. Aside from the hinge, this phone also comes with a 4500mAh battery that supports 55W fast charging.
As everyone expects, the new Huawei Mate Xs comes pre-installed with Android 10 and with the EMUI 10 interface, but this system is free of Google applications and services. Instead, Huawei decided in the new phone to rely on its package of applications and services.
