Huawei’s best foldable device so far
The best and most interesting part of the Huawei Mate Xs 2 is its OLED display, which offers 7.8 inches of screen real estate when expanded and 6.5 inches when folded. Both displays have a resolution of 2480 x 2200 pixels and 2480 x 1176 pixels respectively, and offer a 120Hz refresh rate for a smooth scrolling experience and a touch sampling rate of up to 240Hz.
As for size, the full package comes in at 156.5mm long, 139.3mm wide when expanded, and just over half that at 75.5mm when folded. In terms of thickness, the Huawei Mate Xs 2 measures 5.4mm when opened and 11.1mm when folded. It also folds and it closes completely, with no visible gaps between the screen and the body of the phone when folded.
However, one of the biggest differences from its predecessor is the addition of an in-display front camera with 10.7 MP resolution and f / 2.2 lens slot. It supports the company’s M-Pen 2S for drawing, and finally, the phone will be powered by HarmonyOS 2.
If you want to get hold of this device, it is now officially available for purchase in China from select retailers at a starting price of ¥9999 – or approximately $1510. It is currently unknown if Huawei plans to release this device outside of China.
