Huawei is expected to unveil the successor to its foldable smartphone Mate X — the Mate Xs — at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2020 and now a new report has claimed that the device will be cheaper than the Mate X. The Mate Xs is said to come with an improved hinge design and a stronger display.
The Mate X, which is currently only for sale in China, sells for CNY 16,999 (roughly Rs. 1,76,000) or about $2,400 (roughly Rs. 1,70,600), which makes it more expensive than Samsung’s Galaxy Fold.
It is also reported that the Mate XS will be smaller than the Mate X in its overall footprint, but the display size is said to remain the same.
The Mate Xs will come with a number of other improvements, according to Huawei Consumer Group CEO Richard Yu.
According to Yu, the Mate Xs will have an improved hinge mechanism along with a more resistant screen. Similar to the original Mate X, the Mate Xs will launch without access to Google services and apps with a Kirin 990 5G SoC.
