Huawei’s Foldable Mate Xs Is Available Now
The Huawei Mate Xs builds on its predecessor Mate X with a more powerful SoC and unique mechanical hinge design. Featuring more than 100 interlocking parts working together in perfect harmony, the Falcon Wing Design minimises the crease on the unfolded screen, delivering a seamless viewing experience.
The Mate Xs adopts a Double Aerospace-grade Optical Polyimide Design to create a foldable device that maintains the mesmerising screen performance while offering safe, durable foldable technology. On top of it all is a protective layer made of an aerospace-grade optical polyimide (PI), a material that costs almost three times the price of gold by weight.
One of the advantages of the foldable design is that it packs the smartphone and tablet experiences into one pocketable device. Folded, the Mate Xs is a powerful dual-screen smartphone featuring a 6.6-inch main screen and a 6.38-inch secondary screen. Located on the sidebar is an easy-to-reach button that unclasps the folded display with a simple press. Unfurled, the smartphone becomes a tablet featuring an Immersive 8’’ FullView Display that delivers a viewing experience unrivalled by that of any other smartphone.
Work smarter and play harder with the all-new Multi-Window feature that makes full use of the massive display to provide innovative interactions. The feature enables users to effortlessly drag and drop files and images between them, providing them with the duality of convenience and efficiency.
The Mate Xs comes with a Kirin 990 5G chipset which includes an integrated 5G modem. This is the world’s first chipset to deliver powerful performance and 5G connectivity simultaneously with better efficiency and lower heat output.
Graphics processing is handled by the 16-core Mali-G76 GPU, the most powerful GPU on Huawei handsets which enhances the quality of images, making them sharper and providing users with a more immersive viewing experience.
The Mate Xs houses a SuperSensing Leica Quad Camera in a vertical array along its sidebar. The camera system features a 40MP SuperSensing Wide camera, 16MP Ultra-Wide camera, 8MP Telephoto camera and 3D Depth Sensing camera.
The main camera is a 40MP SuperSensing Wide camera, equipped with a large 1/1.7inch RYYB sensor. The RYYB sensor replaces green pixels in the traditional RGGB Bayer array with yellow pixels, allowing more light into the sensor. This generates more vivid photography, capturing more detailed information and ultimately providing a higher image quality.
For stunning landscapes and detailed macro shots, the 16MP Ultra-Wide camera features a 17mm focal length and 2.5cm micro focus capabilities, lending itself to a wide range of photographic scenarios from scenic landscape shots and group photos, to extreme close-ups of small objects.
The Mate Xs in Interstellar Blue retails at S$3,788 islandwide now.
