Huawei has launched its latest flagship foldable phone, the Mate Xs 2 and it certainly doesn’t look disappointing. It inherits Huawei’s classic fold-out design and features the company’s next-generation Falcon Wing dual-rotation hinge that allows the foldable 7.8-inch True-Chroma display to open more than the other foldable phones on the market. The Mate Xs 2 features a flat, seamless crease and is made of ultra-light fiberglass and uses aerospace-grade titanium alloys and ultra-light high-strength steel for its structure. Yes, it is definitely the flagship grade…
Besides being incredibly thin, light and flat, the Huawei Mate Xs 2 boasts flagship specs, which include a 7.8-inch foldable True-Chroma display and a 50MP True-Chroma camera system that supports Huawei XD optics.
Huawei Mate Xs 2: Design
Weighing 255g, the Huawei Mate Xs 2 is certainly the lightest foldable phone on the market – made possible by materials such as ultra-light fiberglass for the phone’s backplane, as well as titanium alloys from aerospace quality and ultra-lightweight high-strength steel. for its structure.
The hinge of a foldable phone is always interesting, and the Mate Xs 2 was built with the ultra-lightweight, high-strength steel developed by Huawei, which the company claims has strong load-bearing capacity. Apart from being lightweight, these materials obviously give the user a solid phone, so it’s a win all round.
Speaking of toughness, the Mate Xs 2 has a composite screen that creates a shock barrier that improves the flexibility and resistance of the phone to shocks. Huawei describes it as being a design similar to collision avoidance systems in cars – no small feat indeed.
As mentioned earlier, the Huawei Mate Xs 2 features the new generation of Huawei-exclusive dual-rotation Falcon hinge. It certainly promises an immersive folding experience, as unfolded the screen becomes completely flat and smooth.
It’s the first Huawei phone to feature the company’s innovative 3D fiberglass design, which is supposed to create a soft feel while reducing fingerprint smudges.
7.8-inch True Chroma foldable display
Unfolded, the Huawei Mate Xs 2 features a foldable 7.8-inch True-Chroma display, with a resolution of 2480 x 2200 and an aspect ratio of 8:7.1 when folded / aspect ratio of 19:9 when unfolded. Impressively, it supports up to 120Hz refresh rate, 1440Hz high frequency PWM dimming, up to 240Hz touch sampling rate and has an anti-glare layer to reduce the reflectivity of the screen light for better experience under sunlight.
Huawei Mate Xs 2: Specifications
Powered by the excellent flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 series chip, the rest of the Mate Xs 2’s specs are certainly impressive too. There is a graphene liquid cooling system, a new AI sound engine and ultra-thin and large amplitude stereo sounds and the 4600mAh battery and supports the distributed 66W Huawei SuperCharge.
The flagship foldable camera system features a 50MP True-Chroma camera to capture true-to-life color, which is joined by a 13MP ultrawide snapper and 8MP telephoto module with 3x optical zoom.
Taking full advantage of the Huawei XD Fusion Pro True-Chroma image engine, 10-channel multi-spectrum sensor and color calibration of over 2000 colors in the P3 full color gamut, the company promises that the Mate Xs 2 will faithfully reproduce enriched colors – we can’t wait to test it.
Perhaps the most exciting camera feature is the Unique Mirror Shot, which allows users to preview shots in real time through the camera’s digital viewfinder on both screens simultaneously.

Huawei has confirmed that the phone will go on sale in Europe in June for €1,999 (around $2,100/£1,700). The foldable phone went on sale in China last month. We suspect the phone won’t be available in the US.
