If the first round of the leaflets did not fully satisfy users and probably not even the manufacturers for Huawei, the time comes for the second version and the "virtual" keynote entitled "TOGETHER, Connecting Possibilities " held in Barcelona in what was to be one of the MWC 2020 events, it was an opportunity to present it together with many other innovations in all the electronics fields in which the Chinese company ventures: from tablets to routers at home, from the store of apps to notebooks.
Mate Xs collects all the suggestions and indications of these months without distorting the terminal but maintains a factor that will limit access to those who can afford an expense of 2,599 Euros to ensure a cutting-edge and powerful but still "young" product.
HUAWEI Mate Xs for surethe natural evolution of the HUAWEI Mate X folding. Made even more powerful by the presence of the Kirin 990 5G processor, an improved Falcon Wing design in addition to the well-known experience of seamless use, in smartphone and tablet modes.
Richard Yu, Huawei Consumer Business Group CEO, said: "HUAWEI Mate X was our first folding and established a standard for the sector. HUAWEI Mate Xs further raises the bar by offering even more powerful connectivity and an integrated user experience. the fastest 5G smartphone in its class. "
HUAWEI Mate Xs still offers a real FullView experience with an 8-inch display that can be folded outwards, thanks to the new mechanical hinge design. The Falcon Wing design features more than 100 interlocking components that work to reinforce the display: the new hinge made with a liquid metal based on zirconium, much more resistant and makes the 180 opening simple and linear.
HUAWEI Mate Xs equipped with a flexible display with a new two-layer polymer structure. The folding display made with a Huawei pioneering technique: two layers of aerospace polyimide joined by a transparent adhesive. This unique material allows the display to reproduce excellent image quality, saturation and brightness, while maintaining a high degree of durability.
Bent over, HUAWEI Mate Xs a dual-screen smartphone, with a 6.6-inch main display and a 6.38-inch secondary one. Opened, the smartphone turns into an 8-inch tablet, offering a viewing and gaming experience never experienced before on any other smartphone.
HUAWEI Mate Xs equipped with the Flying Fish Fin cooling system, custom designed for the folding. This system uses flexible graphene with microscopic slits that allow to fold together with the device and to cover the entire surface for uniform and effective cooling. Specially designed for the compact dimensions of HUAWEI Mate Xs, the 5G antenna, the result of a long research and development process, to guarantee stable and high speed connectivity.
Top performance and 5G connectivity
Powered by the Kirin 990 5G, HUAWEI Mate Xs benefits from Huawei's most advanced chipset. The SoC includes an octa-core CPU that includes two super-sized Cortex-A76 custom cores, two large Cortex-A76 custom cores and four small Cortex-A55 cores, which run at a base clock of 2.86GHz. The graphics processing managed by the 16-core Mali-G76 GPU, the most powerful Huawei GPU, while the NPU built on Huawei's Da Vinci architecture allows AI performance.
The Kirin 990 5G SoC has an integrated 5G modem, which allows you to simultaneously provide powerful performance and 5G connectivity with better efficiency and lower heat output. It supports different connection modes: 2G, 3G, 4G, as well as 5G NSA (not stand alone) and SA (stand alone). The SoC supports the entire 5G and 5G + 4G Dual SIM Dual Standby spectrum.
HUAWEI Mate Xs continues the tradition of high level photographic systems, thanks to the SuperSensing Quad Camera system created in collaboration with Leica. The photographic system positioned on the sidebar and consisting of a 40MP main camera (wide angle, f / 1.8), an ultra wide angle 16MP camera (f / 2.2), an 8MP telephoto lens (f / 2.4, OIS) and a 3D Depth Sensing Camera. The combination of OIS and Image Stabilization with AI promises super stable shots and hybrid zoom up to 30X. The system supports up to ISO 204800 for capturing incredible photos even in poorly lit environments.
HUAWEI Mate Xs particularly convenient in shooting dyselfia, allowing the user to make the most of the system with four cameras, looking at the secondary screen while taking the selfie. In portrait mode, both the photographer and the subject can work together to obtain even more interactive shots and portraits by looking at the result of the pose on both screens.
HUAWEI Mate Xs natively supports a Multi-Window mode, which allows you to view and interact with two apps side by side. Text, images and documents can be transferred with the same ease with which you drag content from one application to another.
A dock located at the bottom of the screen offers users a space for quick connection to applications. When two apps are open simultaneously, users can launch a third one using the Floating Window function. This feature is very convenient for dealing with small activities such as answering text messages without abandoning the other apps in use.
HUAWEI Mate Xs works with EMUI10.0.1, an operating system based on Android Open Source. Not only does it combine improved performance with enhanced security, it also supports the Multi-screen Collaboration feature, developed with Huawei technology. This feature breaks the boundaries between Windows and Android devices: users can easily transfer files between the HUAWEI Mate Xs and a HUAWEI MateBook, as well as control two systems from a single display.
Launched with HUAWEI AppGallery
HUAWEI Mate Xs will be one of the first Huawei devices to be launched with the renewed version of HUAWEI AppGallery, the official Huawei application store we are talking about in a dedicated article
HUAWEI AppGallery opens the door to a world of quality global apps that take advantage of the unique capabilities of Huawei devices – such as HiAI, connectivity, system and security.
Price and availability in Italy
HUAWEI Mate Xs will be available at the recommended price of 2,599. The official date will be announced in the coming days.
