● The HUAWEI Mate Xs 2 will be available in Singapore from 25 June 2022 at a recommended retail price of $2,598
● Weighing just 255 g, HUAWEI Mate Xs 2 is one of the lightest and slimmest foldable phone in the market
● Designed to be highly durable, the HUAWEI Mate Xs 2 adopts a Composite Structure Screen and layered design, making it an excellent shock absorber and buffer
Huawei Consumer Business Group (BG) today announced the launch of its flagship foldable smartphone, the HUAWEI Mate Xs 2, which embodies Huawei’s new explorations in the development of foldable phones. Inheriting Huawei’s classic outward folding design, the HUAWEI Mate Xs 2 is ultra-light and ultra-thin, ultra-flat and ultra-reliable, bringing consumers the ideal foldable smartphone experience.
With the new generation Double-rotating Falcon Wing Hinge, the HUAWEI Mate Xs 2 has an elegant unibody design which boasts a flat and seamless fold. The phone is also equipped with Huawei’s signature flagship features, including an industry-leading 7.8" True-Chroma Foldable Display and a 50 MP True-Chroma Camera System that supports HUAWEI XD Optics, bringing performance to greater heights. Thanks to the new dynamic folding visual effect and the upgraded Smart Multi-Window, the HUAWEI Mate Xs 2 presents an innovative and interactive experience to all users.
Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei Consumer BG, said, “HUAWEI Mate Xs 2 has fully evolved design aesthetics, smart communications, imaging technology and the large-screen interactive experience. This exciting new flagship is set to lead the era of ideal foldable phones.”
Innovative materials: Ultra-light, ultra-flat and ultra-reliable
The HUAWEI Mate Xs 2 weighs only 255 g, a feat previously only achieved by non-foldable smartphones. This was made possible by utilising innovative light materials such as ultra-light glass fibres for the phone’s backplane, as well as aerospace-grade titanium alloys and ultra-light, high-strength steel for its structure. These ultra-light, innovative materials reduce the overall weight of the phone, and give the device its excellent strength and toughness.
The HUAWEI Mate Xs 2 features the Huawei-exclusive new-generation Double-rotating Falcon Wing Hinge Design. When unfolded, the screen becomes as flat and smooth as a mirror, providing users with a more immersive foldable smartphone experience.
The hinge of the HUAWEI Mate Xs 2 is exquisitely built with Huawei’s self-developed ultra-light, high-strength steel, which exhibits a strong load-bearing capacity where users can enjoy a lighter and stronger foldable smartphone.
Not only that, the HUAWEI Mate Xs 2 adopts a Composite Screen, which incorporates a design that is similar to anti-collision systems found in cars, making it an excellent shock absorber and buffer. This shock barrier improves the phone’s flexibility and resistance to impact, resulting in enhanced durability to ensure users’ peace of mind.
Contemporary design: Unique unibody design that goes beyond imagination
The HUAWEI Mate Xs 2 adopts a classic outward folding design, showcasing the beauty of minimalism with its smooth fold. The linear wrapping body reveals the exquisite aesthetics of the phone’s light and stylish look.
Unfolded, the HUAWEI Mate Xs 2 has a 7.8" True-Chroma Foldable Display, with a high-resolution of 2480 × 22001. The phone also has an 8:7.1 golden ratio, delivering a more immersive visual experience. Additionally, the HUAWEI Mate Xs 2 supports a refresh rate of up to 120 Hz, 1,440 Hz high frequency PWM dimming, as well as up to 240 Hz touch sampling rate, delivering a more stunning screen display effect. The anti-reflective Nano Optical Layer of its screen helps to reduce the display’s light reflectivity, providing users with a better reading experience under sunlight. With a 19:9 display ratio when unfolded, the HUAWEI Mate Xs 2 will make users feel as though they are holding a non-foldable phone.
The HUAWEI Mate Xs 2 has brought another breakthrough in aesthetic design with its first innovative 3D Fibreglass Design for more refined textures. This allows a soft surface for users, while also reducing smudges from fingerprints. The phone is available in two classic colourways - Black, which comes in a crosshatch leather texture, and White, in a natural leather texture. The colours and leather patterns are complementary to one another, giving an overall chic look. In addition, the HUAWEI Mate Xs 2 comes with a half-covered matching PU Case that shares the same colours as the phone, providing better protection and acts as a phone stand when required.
Flagship Technology: Standing out in the era of innovative technology with excellent performance
The HUAWEI Mate Xs 2 is packed with a 4,600 mAh2 battery and supports the distributed 66 W3 HUAWEI SuperCharge, improving standby battery life for users. Meanwhile, the Graphene Liquid Cooling System further enhances its heat dissipation performance. To enhance the audio-visual entertainment experience, the HUAWEI Mate Xs 2 is equipped with ultra-thin and large-amplitude stereo sounds, creating a surround sound system and bringing consumers an immersive audio experience alongside the new AI Sound Engine.
The HUAWEI Mate Xs 2 comes with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 flagship series chip, which is manufactured using an advanced process technology to bring both powerful performance and an extraordinary experience to foldable smartphones.
Flagship HUAWEI Image™: The secret to creating a masterpiece
Huawei continues to invest in innovation and development, using its technology to form the exclusive HUAWEI Image™ for its consumers. The True-Chroma Camera System of the HUAWEI Mate Xs 2 includes a 50 MP True-Chroma Camera for capturing true-to-life colours. The improved HUAWEI XD Optics brings a brand-new information recovery technology to further elevate image clarity, helping to restore image details in a ground-breaking new way. Taking full advantage of the HUAWEI XD Fusion Pro True-Chroma Image Engine, the 10-Channel Multi-Spectrum Sensor and colour calibration of more than 2,000 colours in P3 full colour gamut, as well as all-round leading software, hardware and debugging capabilities, the HUAWEI Mate Xs 2 showcases enriched colours, allowing users to accurately capture vibrancy.
The Mirror Shooting function of the HUAWEI Mate Xs 2 allows users to preview shots simultaneously in real time through the digital viewfinder of the camera on both screens. It is also equipped with the new generation of AI Remove, allowing users to edit photos easily - a simple click allows removal of selected objects in the photos. Distant and wide views can be easily captured in one shot with the Telephoto Camera and Ultra-Wide-Angle Camera.
Smart Interactions: Immersive large screen brings a new interactive experience with higher efficiency
In terms of software ecology and user experience, the HUAWEI Mate Xs 2 continues to supply innovative breakthroughs, bringing users more immersive experiences. It adopts the brand-new dynamic folding visual effect that, when unfolded, automatically expands the desktop screen and, when folded, allows the screen to remain clear and smooth. The upgraded Smart Multi-Window function provides seamless interactions and higher efficiency, whereas the Split-screen function supports the parallel use of two applications to allow easy operation and improve productivity.
Moreover, the Swipe Gesture supports quick access and control of the floating windows, activating multi-tasking capabilities simply with one swipe. With its large screen and hands-free functionality, it provides an immersive visual experience during HD video calls.
The HUAWEI Mate Xs 2 continues to redefine industry standards. It reinforces Huawei’s leadership position in delivering innovations that provides users with an extraordinary product experience, making it the ideal flagship foldable smartphone to date.
