Huawei’s next-generation foldable smartphone, Mate Xs 2, will be available in Singapore from this Saturday (June 25) at a price of S$2,598.
The Mate Xs 2 features an outward folding design with Huawei’s new generation double-rotating Falcon Wing Hinge. This allows a flat and seamless fold without any visible crease when the hinge resides. Plus, the hinge uses Huawei’s self-developed ultra-light high-strength steel for durability and longevity.
When folded, the Mate Xs 2 offers a 6.5-inch OLED display that is comparable to major flagship “unfoldable” smartphones in the market. However, it becomes a 7.8-inch phablet when the display is unfolded. Furthermore, this display can exhibit over 1 billion colours and features a high refresh rate of up to 120Hz.
In addition, the foldable smartphone comes with a main triple-camera system comprising a 50-megapixel (MP) wide-angle camera, a 13MP ultra-wide-angle camera and a 8MP telephoto camera with 3x optical zoom. A 10.7MP selfie camera lets you take a quick video call on the go.
Not to mention, the Mate Xs 2 comes with Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 4G flagship chip for optimal performance. It also packs a 4,600mAh battery for long battery life and uses a Graphene Liquid Cooling System for enhanced heat dissipation performance.
The icing on the cake is its relatively light weight of only 255g. By comparison, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 weighs 271g while the vivo X Fold tips the scales at 311g.
However, the Mate Xs 2 runs HarmonyOS 2 and lacks Google Mobile Services due to the continued US trade sanctions. But you should find most apps you need on Huawei AppGallery, its very own app store.
