Huawei Consumer Business CEO, Yu Chengdong, said in an interview with French media Frandroid that Huawei will release an upgraded version of Huawei Mate X at the MWC2020 conference next year. This will be Huawei’s second foldable smartphone. In addition, this foldable phone will come with a better handling, hinge design, flexible display, and processor. The name of this upcoming foldable phone is Huawei Mate Xs.
We expect to see this device in February next year. Relative to the Mate X, the Mate Xs will focus on the ruggedness of its hinges, display, and processor. No doubt, this smartphone should come with the Kirin 990 5G SoC. Huawei is focusing on the strength of this phone given that foldable phones are considered to be “very fragile”.
At the same time, Yu Chengdong also said that Huawei’s foldable phone will sell in Europe. However, he did not say if it will be the Mate X or Mate Xs. Recall that all Huawei’s new phones can not use Google Mobile Services. This means that it is a big deal to sell these devices outside China. Nevertheless, Huawei has been more than impressive despite the US ban. It is even set to overtake Samsung as the largest phone manufacturer in the world.
Earlier, Huawei executive, He Gang, has revealed that Huawei is developing the Mate Xs and will be equipped with the Kirin 990 5G processor. It is worth mentioning that Yu Chengdong also stated that he “wants to have a thinner and lighter model than the current market.” From this point of view, Huawei’s folding screen mobile phone will take a thinner route.
