Huawei Mate Xs 2 release: SD 888 4G chipset, new-gen Falcon Wing Hinge and more, starting price from ~RM6601


Just last night, Huawei unveiled a bunch of devices but nothing takes the spotlight like the Huawei Mate Xs 2. After two years, the new foldable successor to the Mate Xs is now available in China and here's what you need to know about it.

Weighing at only 255g, Huawei highlighted that the Mate Xs 2 is using ultra-light glass fibres as well as aerospace-grade titanium alloys. To further improve the folding experience, there is now a new-gen double-rotating Falcon Wing Hinge Design that was developed by the company itself. The display also adopts a Composite Screen that absorbs shock and impact. On the other hand, the folded display is 6.5-inches.


When unfolded, the Mate Xs 2 features a 7.8-inch True-Chroma Foldable Display with 2480 x 2200 pixels and an 8:7.1 aspect ratio. As expected, there is also a 120Hz refresh rate and it's also accompanied by a 1440Hz high-frequency PWM dimming and up to 240Hz touch sampling rate. Furthermore, the Mate Xs 2 also features a Snapdragon 888 4G chipset, up to 12GB + 512GB memory capacity, and up to 4880mAh battery with 66W Huawei SuperCharge technology, a Graphene Liquid Cooling System and a new AI Sound Engine.

To the camera corner, you can find the primary 50MP + 13MP (ultrawide) + 8MP (telephoto) triple rear camera utilising the True-Chroma Camera system by Huawei. The company said that the XD Optics is now improved to further elevate image clarity thanks to the assistance of the XD Fusion Pro True-Chroma Image Engine, the 10-Channel Multi-Spectrum Sensor and colour calibration of more than 2000 colours in P3 full-colour gamut.


Alternatively, you may get a Huawei M Pen 2 as a separate accessory for the Mate Xs 2. Available in three colours - purple, white and black, the pricing for this new Huawei foldable device is 9999 Yuan (~RM6601, 8GB + 256GB) and 12,999 Yuan (~RM8582, 12GB + 512GB). We aren't sure if Malaysia will get it or not, so we have to wait and see. Stay tuned for more trending tech news at
