Huawei Mate Xs was finally formalized by the Chinese company. The folding smartphone – the second launched by Huawei, ed – was presented on Monday, and unlike the Mate X (which never came out of China, ed) will be the first "foldable" to be affected by an international launch.
Huawei Mate Xs will be on sale starting next March, at the price of 2,499 euros. At the moment the Shenzhen giant has not communicated the details regarding the launch of the leaflet in markets outside China, but we will certainly know more in the coming days.
Huawei Mate Xs shows up with a display that wraps around the outside of the phone when closed and opens on an eight-inch screen that allows you to have the size of a "tablet". The company provides a number of improvements, including a redesigned four-layer screen and an updated falcon wing hinge. The foldable smartphone powered by a processor Kirin 990, made by Huawei on its own, and also characterized by the presence of four cameras. In addition, it can be used on a wider range of bands 5G network high speed.
The huge weakness of the Mate Xs obviously the lack of the whole Android operating system Google following the "ban" imposed by the Trump administration on Huawei. Mate Xs then runs a reduced open source version of Android. Users can still download apps but they come from the Huawei app store, not from the Google Play store.
As known, the Mate Xs would have been one of the "protagonist" devices of the Mobile World Congress 2020, scheduled just these days in Barcelona. However, the large Spanish fair was canceled due to the spread of the coronavirus, which is anxious for the whole world. At the moment it is not clear whether the MWC 2020 will be recalendarised or to be considered canceled.
