The hinge plays a crucial role in today's foldable smartphone. The Huawei Mate Xs packs a falcon-wing design for the hinge. Huawei has constructed the hinge using zirconium-based liquid metal that's 30 percent harder than titanium alloy.

As the successor to the Huawei Mate X, the new foldable phone has an upgraded Kirin 990 SoC that packs a Kirin 980 and a Balong 5000. This means that the phone is integrated with a 5G modem rather than having a separate component. Huawei notes that the new chipset increases the CPU performance and power efficiency by 23 percent.

multi-window design

Other features include the multi-window design, where the Mate Xs can show up to three apps simultaneously, where one can be placed on the left side, one on the right, and the third one in a floating window. The multi-window option allows users to open two instances of the same app together.

Price, Availablity

More importantly, Huawei confirmed that the new Mate Xs is running the latest version of the open-source version on Android. It comes with the Huawei Mobile Services instead of the Google services. Of course, the Huawei Mate Xs comes with 5G support.

While the Huawei Mate X launched only in China, Yu said that the Mate Xs would be hitting the global markets. The Huawei Mate Xs with 8GB RAM and 512GB of onboard storage will cost €2499 when it goes on sale next month.
