Although most of the Android world is turning to those flexible phones that bend inwards (such as the Galaxy Fold), Huawei is not giving up on its design, so the Huawei Mate Xs 2 remains true to its predecessor’s design, with major changes hidden under the hood.
The device has a 7.8-inch OLED screen (when the device is disassembled) with a resolution of 2480 x 2200px and a refresh rate of 120Hz. The folded screen is 6.5 inches in size with a resolution of 2480 x 1176 px. It also has a 10MP selfie camera located in the upper right corner.
Despite its rather large dimensions, Huawei managed to reduce its weight, so the Mate Xs 2 weighs only 255 grams, while its predecessor weighed over 300.
One of the things that Huawei mentioned during the presentation is the hinge mechanism, namely, it is a double rotor mechanism that has been improved in terms of improving long-term durability and not leaving visible creases on the screen. Only time will tell how true this is.
Huawei also boasts improved durability of the polymer-coated screen (translated as some type of plastic) thanks to the new four-layer structure. The Mate Xs 2 supports the Huawei M-Pen 2s pen so you can take notes or draw drawings on your tablet-sized phone.
Like the Mate X and Mate Xs, Huawei on the Mate Xs 2 uses a triple camera module. There’s a 50 MP main camera, a 13 MP ultra-wide camera, and an 8 MP telephoto module with 3x optical and 30x digital zoom and OIS.
The foldable device runs the Snapdragon 888 4G chipset with 8/12 GB of RAM and up to 512 GB of built-in memory. The Mate Xs 2 has a 4,880 mAh battery with a fast charge of 66 W and runs Huawei’s HarmonyOS 2.
Huawei Mate Xs 2 comes in white, black, and purple. It starts at 9,999 CNY for the 8/256 GB version and goes up to 12,999 CNY for the 12/512 GB version.
