Perfection redefined with the Huawei Mate Xs 2

How Huawei made its foldable flagship even better

Huawei Consumer Business Group recently announced the launch of its new perfect foldable smartphone, HUAWEI Mate Xs 2, which embodies Huawei’s new explorations in the development of foldable phones. Inheriting Huawei’s classic outward folding design, HUAWEI Mate Xs 2 leverages its strengths of being ultra-light and ultra-thin, ultra-flat, and ultra-reliable, to bring consumers the best experience. Here are what makes the phone stand out among the rest.

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, bringing users a more immersive foldable experience. The phone is also equipped with flagship features, including an industry-leading 7.8″ True-Chroma Foldable Display, and a HUAWEI Image 50MP True-Chroma Camera System that supports HUAWEI XD Optics, taking its excellent performance to new heights.

It weighs only 255g, a weight that only a non-foldable phone has previously reached. This was made possible by employing Innovative Light Materials, such as ultra-light glass fibers, aerospace-grade titanium alloys, and ultra-light, high-strength steel. These ultra-light, innovative materials not only reduce the overall weight of the phone but also give the device excellent strength and fracture toughness.

Contemporary design: unique unibody design that goes beyond imagination

HUAWEI Mate Xs 2 adopts a classic outward folding design, exhibiting the beauty of minimalism with its smooth fold. The linear wrapping body reveals the exquisite aesthetics of the phone’s light and dainty look.

Unfolded, HUAWEI Mate Xs 2 has a 7.8″ True-Chroma Foldable Display, with a high resolution of 2480 x 2200. The phone also has an 8:7.1 golden ratio, delivering a more immersive visual experience. Moreover, HUAWEI Mate Xs 2 supports a refresh rate of up to 120Hz, 1440Hz high-frequency PWM dimming, as well as up to 240Hz touch sampling rate, delivering a more stunning screen display effect.

HUAWEI Mate Xs 2 has brought another breakthrough in aesthetic design, with its first innovative 3D Fiberglass Design for more refined textures. This creates a soft touch while reducing smudges from fingerprints. Huawei’s continuous R&D in the innovation and development of ideal foldable phones resulted in the HUAWEI Mate Xs 2 being the ultra-flat, ultra-thin, ultra-light, and super durable foldable smartphone in the market has ever seen. The Mate Xs 2 has reimagined future form factors of smartphones, bringing consumers a revolutionary experience. The phone is available in two classic colorways: Black, with a crosshatch leather texture, and White, with a natural leather texture. The colors and leather patterns are complementary to one another, giving a chic look.

Flagship Technology: standout in the era of innovative technology with excellent performance
HUAWEI Mate Xs 2 is packed with a 4600mAh battery and supports the distributed 66W HUAWEI SuperCharge, improving standby battery life for users. Meanwhile, the Graphene Liquid Cooling System has further enhanced heat dissipation performance, to fully embrace any kind of multi-faceted lifestyle users may have.

Flagship HUAWEI Image™ creates a masterpiece

Huawei continues to invest in innovation and development, using its solid technology to form the exclusive HUAWEI Image™ for its consumers. The True-Chroma Camera System of HUAWEI Mate Xs 2 includes a 50MP True-Chroma Camera for capturing true-to-life colors. The improved HUAWEI XD Optics brings brand-new information recovery technology to further elevate image clarity, helping restore image details in a way that breaks the boundaries of physics. Taking full advantage of the HUAWEI XD Fusion Pro True-Chroma Image Engine, the 10-Channel Multi-Spectrum Sensor and color calibration of more than 2000 colors in P3 full-color gamut, as well as all-round leading software and hardware and debugging capabilities, HUAWEI Mate Xs 2 faithfully reproduces enriched colors, allowing users to accurately capture all the vibrancy in the world.

HUAWEI Mate Xs 2 is also equipped with the new generation of AI Remove, allowing users to simply click on the selected objects for removal to easily edit photos. Meanwhile, thanks to the Telephoto Camera and Ultra-Wide-Angle Camera, distant and wide views can be easily captured in one shot.

Smart Interactions: Immersive large screen brings a new interactive experience with higher efficiency

In terms of software ecology and user experience, HUAWEI Mate Xs 2 continues to innovate and breakthrough, bringing users more valuable experiences. It adopts the brand-new dynamic folding visual effect. When unfolded, the desktop screen will automatically expand and, when folded, the screen remains clear and smooth.
