Huawei recently announced the launch of its stunning flagship foldable smartphone, the HUAWEI Mate Xs 2. The phone features an outwards folding design and is incredibly thin and light with an ultra-flat display and a durable build. This new phone is undoubtedly going to bring a whole new level of the smartphone experience.
Behind the wafer-thin design of HUAWEI Mate Xs 2 is the new generation Double-rotating Falcon Wing Hinge that produces a display that is as flat as a mirror when unfolded. The 50MP True-Chroma Camera System supports HUAWEI XD Optics and takes the camera performance to a whole new level. The experience of using the phone is made even better by the new dynamic folding visual effect and the upgraded Smart Multi-Window.
HUAWEI Mate Xs 2
The thinnest, lightest, flattest
A great folding phone needs a flawless folding mechanism. That's why Huawei developed the new-generation Double-rotating Falcon Wing Hinge to perfect the design of HUAWEI Mate Xs 2. It is this new hinge technology that helps the phone to have an ultra-flat screen in an ultra-thin and light body. Even though the body is thin, the high-strength steel used is strong enough to make the phone durable. The surprising thing about HUAWEI Mate Xs 2 is that even with its huge screen and folding form factor, it only weighs 255g, similar to a typical non-foldable smartphone. This was made possible by employing innovative light materials, such as ultra-light glass fibres for the phone's backplane, as well as aerospace-grade titanium alloy and ultra-light, high-strength steel for its structure. These ultra-light, innovative materials not only reduce the overall weight of the phone but also give the device excellent strength and fracture toughness.
The composite screen on the phone shares a similar design to anti-collision systems in cars. Having an excellent shock absorber and buffer layer provides the phone with a degree of flexibility to withstand impacts.
Capture beautiful moments with HUAWEI ImageTM
With the 50MP True-Chroma Camera System of HUAWEI Mate Xs 2, you can capture life-like pictures with accurate colours. The improved HUAWEI XD Optics enables camera performance beyond its physical limitations allowing you to take pictures rich in details. The phone can effectively remove colour casts and tolerances, preserving full details and colour accuracy and further elevating image clarity by 10%. The Mirror Shooting on the phone allows both you and your subject to preview the real-time shot through the digital viewfinder of the camera on both screens at the same time. Another feature that you will love is the AI Remove. After simply selecting the "Remove" feature with one click, the phone can intelligently identify selected objects for removal when editing photos. Furthermore, the AI image processing technology can automatically identify the background and merge the colours and outlines to easily edit images.
A seamless multi-window experience to go with it
What completes the immersive experience of the phone is its smooth software experience. It adopts the brand-new dynamic folding visual effect. When unfolded, the desktop screen will automatically expand, and when folded, the screen remains clear and smooth. To let you make the most out of the huge screen, there is the upgraded Smart Multi-Window function that makes it easier to interact with the phone. The Split-screen function allows you to use two applications in parallel to improve efficiency and speed. Moreover, Swipe Gesture supports easy access and control of the floating windows, allowing multi-tasking with one quick swipe. With its large screen and coupled hands-free function, it brings an immersive communication experience during HD video calls.
Unfolded, the HUAWEI Mate Xs 2 has a 7.8" True-Chroma Foldable Display, with a resolution of 2480x2200 and support for up to 120Hz refresh rate. The phone also packs a 4600mAh battery and features the distributed 66W HUAWEI SuperCharge for a quick battery top-up.
