The Huawei Mate Xs: want one?

Huawei rehashed and re-launched its foldable smartphone just yesterday. It’s called the Huawei Mate Xs now and it looks a lot like last year’s Mate X, only it has upgraded internals.

Now with updated cameras and a Kirin 990, which supports 5G connectivity without the need for an add-on modem, the Mate Xs is ready to take on the world. Oh, there’s another update that happened — its price jumped with about €200 (~$ 217). Now priced at €2,500 (~$ 2,700), it seems like the Mate Xs will be somewhat available internationally, though we have a feeling it will only be stocked in limited numbers.

It was kind of cool and otherworldly when we saw it for the first time in 2019. A big smartphone that folds with its screen on the outside, the two halves usable as two separate displays. To many, it definitely looked way cooler than the inwards-folding Samsung Galaxy Fold. But the reality soon set in — that display is plastic and you probably don’t want it rubbing against anything… ever!

Not to mention, Huawei’s phones — sadly — still do not have access to the Google suite, ergo — the Play Store.

But on the other hand… it looks so cool!

Obviously, that price is going to be a huge detractor. So, let’s leave the price out of it. Let’s say you just happen to have $ 2,700 sitting in a drawer that you have no idea what to do with. Is the Mate Xs a phone you would go out and buy?
