Folding phones have become quite mainstream in the past couple of years with more sophisticated folding mechanisms and deeper integration between hardware and software. What this means for you is that this is the right time to get yourself a foldable phone if you want something that is more functional and future-proof.
HUAWEI Mate Xs 2 has raised the bar for folding phones with its unique new-generation Double-rotating Falcon Wing Hinge Design. The key benefit of this is that the screen stays flat and smooth as a mirror when opened, bringing you an immersive experience without any crease to take your attention away.
The phone is incredibly light at just 255g, making it one of the most lightweight foldable phones out there. This was made possible thanks to Innovative Light Materials, such as ultra-light glass fibres for the phone’s backplane, aerospace-grade titanium alloys and ultra-light, high-strength steel for its structure, which also give the device excellent strength and durability. The use of a Composite Screen helps absorb shocks and improves the phone’s resistance to impact, crushing or drops.
From a flagship of this calibre, one would naturally expect flagship-level cameras. Well, the True-Chroma Camera System of HUAWEI Mate Xs 2 is arguably one of the best set of cameras you can find in a foldable phone. It comes with a 50MP True-Chroma Camera for capturing true-to-life colours. The improved HUAWEI XD Optics brings brand-new information recovery technology to elevate image clarity further, helping restore image details in a way that breaks the boundaries of physics.
Equipped with the HUAWEI XD Fusion Pro True-Chroma Image Engine, HUAWEI Mate Xs 2 can faithfully reproduce colours, which means you can capture all the vibrancy in the world as you see it. The unique Mirror Shooting smart function of the phone also allows you to preview shots in real-time through the digital viewfinder of the camera on both screens simultaneously.
Besides all the improvements in physical design, HUAWEI Mate Xs 2 also brings a more refined user experience. It adopts the brand-new dynamic folding visual effect. While unfolding, the desktop screen will automatically expand, and the screen remains clear and smooth.
The upgraded Smart Multi-Window function brings easier interactions and higher efficiency, whereas the Split-screen function supports using two applications in parallel to improve efficiency and free operation. Moreover, Swipe Gesture supports easy access and control of the floating windows, allowing multi-tasking with one quick swipe.
You get an expansive 7.8-inch True-Chroma Foldable Display with an aspect ratio of 8:7.1 HUAWEI Mate Xs 2 when unfolded. When folded, HUAWEI Mate Xs 2 looks and feels like a regular phone and is easier to grip with a much more modes display area of 6.5-inch with a 19:9 display ratio, which is a familiar size and form factor.
The phone also strikes the perfect balance between form and function when it comes to battery life. It fits an impressive 4600mAh battery into a compact folding body for an interruption-free user experience. It supports the distributed 66W HUAWEI SuperCharge, making it easier to fill it back up.
Huawei’s foldable flagship comes pre-installed with HMS (Huawei Mobile Services), which includes Petal One and a variety of useful and premium services such as Petal Search, Petal Maps, HUAWEI Video, HUAWEI Browser, GameCenter, and more. It also comes pre-installed with AppGallery – the third largest app marketplace in the world, where you can download a wide selection of global and local apps.
If you are looking for a flagship foldable phone, then HUAWEI Mate Xs 2 and it offers some solid advantages in terms of design, durability and how it has implemented the folding design. The HUAWEI Mate Xs 2 is set to launch on the 27th July, with pre orders starting on the same day in the UAE.
