Huawei Mate Xs 2

The Huawei Mate Xs 2 is a phone call with all the letters, and not because on paper it is exaggerated in size. Yes, it hides its real dimensions once it is folded; with tablet extension when it shows its full potential.

Having the screen in the air supposes a greater fragility, also a greater attractiveness. With a flexible OLED panel that reaches 7.8 inches unfolded, the Huawei Mate Xs 2 stays at 6.6 inches once it is closed; with a thickness that is not exaggerated for its characteristics: 11.1 mm after closing. And without losing the high refresh rate at 120 Hz.

The processor chosen by Huawei maintains certain doubts when included in a mobile of the highest range: the Snapdragon 888 without 5G powers the device with versions of storage and RAM that reach 512 and 12 GB. What do you need more space? Huawei offers expansion through its proprietary NM Card.

The chosen cameras keep the numbers high: since they are located in the area of ​​the phone where there is a frame, the mobile takes the opportunity to offer 50-megapixel main sensor, a 13-megapixel wide angle and an 8-megapixel 3x telephoto. As a complement, the Huawei Mate Xs 2 anchors a front camera under the folding panel of 10.7 megapixels. Although it is not necessary either due to its physical characteristics.
