Foldable smartphones are the trend today, leading a revolution in smartphone design that improves good looks and functionality. However, with the entire industry trying to bring out their own unique takes on a foldable concept, Huawei’s newly launched HUAWEI Mate Xs truly redefines the entire idea.
Ever since its announcement, the HUAWEI Mate Xs has been recognized from global media and users for its smart features and design. Focused on enhancing productivity with improved multitasking features with more screen space, while still ensuring a slim and stylish profile, the HUAWEI Mate Xs continues to explore further into cutting-edge technology, making it a class apart from other foldable phones. Here are three reasons why the HUAWEI Mate Xs stands out from other foldable smartphones.
1.Both stylish and functional unique design
The HUAWEI Mate Xs folds outwards thanks to a unique Falcon Wing Design which features more than 100 interlocking parts for smooth folding and unfolding. The hinge is crafted with a zirconium-based liquid metal, which is more durable and facilitates a seamless 180-degree fold.
This unique folding design allows sers to have a main 6.6 inch front screen and a 6.38 inch screen on the back when the phone is folded. Once unfolded, it opens up into an 8-inch Edge-to-Edge HUAWEI FullView display for a borderless viewing experience. What is more impressive is that the phone retains a slim profile at all times, measuring 11mm when its folded and 5.4mm when its unfolded.
The flexible display uses two layers of aerospace-grade polyimide with an optically clear adhesive in an innovative two-layer polymer structure. Thanks to this material, the display retains the ability to produce high quality images, color saturation and brightness without sacrificing durability.
2.Next level multitasking experience
Multitasking is of key focus with the HUAWEI Mate Xs and users are encouraged to use the extra screen estate for a wide range of tasks, at the same time. One key feature is the App Multiplier, which allows for two instances of the same app to be open side by side simultaneously. Meanwhile, the Smart Multi Window feature further enhances multitasking by having two apps run simultaneously next to each other. Images, text or videos can be shared between apps with a simple drag and drop, for example images from the Huawei Gallery to a messenger to be immediately shared or text from webpages to be added into notes. A third floating window can also be added on top for smaller tasks, such as replying to text messages or a quick use of the calculator app.
The Multi-screen collaboration feature takes this a step further, paving the way for seamless streaming of the smartphone’s display on a compatible HUAWEI MateBook with a simple tap*. With this feature, users can control the smartphone and the laptop at the same time, enjoy smartphone apps, games and videos on the larger screen and seamlessly share files between both devices with a simple drag and drop.
The HUAWEI Mate Xs also comes pre-installed with the HUAWEI AppGallery. One of the top three app marketplaces globally, Huawei’s dedicated platform features a wide range of popular apps that are optimized for better performance on Huawei devices. It also deploys improved security measures to keep user data secure and ensures all apps are properly reviewed before being made available. Users can also enjoy the Quick Apps feature, which means they don’t have to install certain apps to use them, saving space and time.
3.Powerful 5G performance with solid hardware
The HUAWEI Mate Xs comes packed with the Kirin 990 5G chipset at its heart. Apart from delivering powerful and efficient performance, this chipset paves the way for NSA and SA 5G network support. In simple terms, Non-Standalone (NSA) networks are based on existing 4G infrastructure, however, there will be a switch to Standalone (SA) 5G networks which have the advantages of faster speeds and more stable connections. If your smartphone only supports NSA networks, you will have issues once the transition takes place. Thanks to the HUAWEI Mate Xs’ capability to support both NSA and SA networks, you can enjoy 5G connectivity and performance and seamlessly make the transition. The HUAWEI Mate Xs also supports 2G, 3G, 4G and 5G+4G Dual SIM Dual Standby.
Photography lovers can enjoy using the SuperSensing 40MP Leica Quad Camera setup which is built into the vertical array along the sidebar. It features a 40MP main camera, 16MP ultra-wide angle camera, 8MP telephoto camera and 3D Depth Sensing Camera, along with OIS and AI Image stabilization with 30x hybrid zoom. What makes this different is that users simply flip the phone to take a selfie by using the rear screen and main camera setup. Thanks to Mirror Shooting, the subject and the photographer can see the preview in real time, which ensures that all photos come out the way they were intended.
All of this is powered by a massive 4500 mAh battery in a dual-battery design, for enhanced efficiency and battery management. The battery can also be quickly charged back up with the 55W HUAWEI SuperCharge technology. The phone is also kept cool during intensive process with the Flying Fish Cooling Structure, which ensures effective and even surface cooling.
With each of its feature focused on bringing the most value to the customer, the HUAWEI Mate Xs is easily one of the most revolutionary devices in the foldable smartphone trend. Aimed at enhancing user productivity and creating an immersive experience, the HUAWEI Mate Xs is definitely one of the smartphones to look out for.
