HUAWEI Mate Xs 2, Huawei's brand-new flagship foldable smartphone, has taken a great design to even more heights. This Ideal Foldable phone is now ultra-flat, ultra-thin, ultra-light and super durable, thanks to the combination of innovative hardware with the ultimate smartphone experience. The new Falcon Wing Design design of the phone is a unique but functional approach as it brings with it a slew of advantages in terms of aesthetics and usability. Adding to it is the phenomenal True-Chroma Camera System and all-new Smart Multi-Window feature. But there's more.
HUAWEI Mate Xs 2
Innovative materials and the new Falcon Wing Design
HUAWEI Mate Xs 2 brings you the industry's first Double-rotating Falcon Wing Hinge design to achieve an ultra-flat foldable screen. When the phone is opened, the screen becomes as flat and smooth as a mirror. The new design ensures that the hinge and the screen are precisely synchronised at different angles while reducing the screen-stretching caused by the folding of the hinge. The hinge uses ultra-light, high-strength steel, which has a substantial load-bearing capacity. As a result, HUAWEI Mate Xs 2 is both lighter and durable.
HUAWEI Mate Xs 2 also employs numerous other innovative materials. For instance, its backplane uses ultra-light glass fibres commonly used for aerospace industries, while the screen structure uses aerospace-grade titanium alloys. These materials reduce the phone's overall weight while giving it excellent strength and fracture toughness. Consequently, it only weighs about 255g, with a thickness of merely 5.4mm when unfolded. Furthermore, the Composite Screen on the phone comprises four layers: a protective layer, a buffer layer, a barrier layer, and a display layer, which shares a similar design with the anti-collision system in cars. This shock barrier is there to improve the phone's resistance to drops and impacts, enhancing the device's durability.
True flagship camera experience
The True-Chroma Camera System on the HUAWEI Mate Xs 2 consists of a 50MP True-Chroma Camera, a 13MP Ultra-Wide-Angle Camera, and an 8MP Telephoto Camera. The improved HUAWEI XD Optics, with its brand-new information recovery technology, elevates image clarity by 10%. Taking full advantage of the HUAWEI XD Fusion Pro True-Chroma Image Engine, coupled with the 10-Channel Multi-Spectrum Sensor and colour calibration with more than 2000 colours in P3 full colour gamut, HUAWEI Mate Xs 2 allows users to capture all the vibrancy in the world accurately.
The Mirror Shooting feature on the phone allows both the user and the subject to preview the real-time shot through the digital viewfinder of the camera on both screens at the same time. HUAWEI Mate Xs 2 has the new generation of AI Remove. After simply selecting “the Remove” function with one click, it can intelligently identify selected objects for removal when editing photos. The AI image processing technology can automatically identify the background and merge the colours and outlines to simplify the editing process.
Immersive Experience with Smart Multi-Window
The phone incorporates a brand-new dynamic folding visual effect and some pre-installed dynamic wallpapers to go with it. When users unfold the phone, the desktop screen will automatically expand. Users can avail of the Split-screen function enabling collaboration and interaction between different applications for better continuity while multitasking. The phone even supports using two applications in parallel. For example, you can chat while editing emails, shop online while watching videos or take notes while reading. This helps users increase efficiency and speed. Swipe Gesture supports easy access and control of the floating windows, allowing buttery-smooth operations with one quick swipe. Users can swipe diagonally to the top left corner to split-screen; swipe diagonally to the top right corner for a new window pop-up; swipe sideways to minimise the window; swipe up for full-screen display, and swipe down to close the window instantly.
Brilliant 7.8' True-Chroma Foldable Display
Unfolded, HUAWEI Mate Xs 2 has a 7.8-inch True-Chroma Foldable Display, with a 8:7.1 display ratio. Folded, the screen measures 6.5-inch with a 19:9 display ratio, comparable with a typical non-foldable smartphone. Having a resolution of 2480x2200 and a pixel density of 424ppi means that it has one of the highest resolutions and pixel densities among foldable phones. The Ultra HD True-Chroma Foldable Display brings clearer text and more refined images, delivering the ultimate visual experience.
HUAWEI Mate Xs 2 supports a refresh rate of up to 120Hz and a touch sampling rate of up to 240Hz, giving the device a faster screen response speed and a smoother display. The 1440Hz high-frequency PWM dimming minimises screen flicker, which helps to reduce eye strain and allows for a more eye-friendly experience, especially under dim light. It is also an HDR screen that faithfully reproduces 1.07 billion colours and supports the P3 wide colour gamut.
Long battery life and fast charging
HUAWEI Mate Xs 2 delivers great standby battery life with a high capacity 4600mAh battery in its compact body. It supports 66W HUAWEI SuperCharge, which allows the phone to be charged to 90% in just 30 minutes. It uses an innovative parallel charging technique that increases the charging speed by 15%, allowing users to charge safely and quickly.
Industry's first 3D Fibreglass Design for a perfect blend of texture and colour
HUAWEI Mate Xs 2 features the industry's first 3D Fibreglass Design for a more refined texture, giving a delicate, soft touch while reducing fingerprint smudges. The metal frame and leather-like pattern also bring a modern look and feel. The phone comes in two colourways, each with a different leather pattern, which is complementary to one another: the Black colourway with crosshatch leather texture and the White colourway with natural leather texture. Each colourway is unique and layered with exquisite details.
Dual stereo speakers for a stunning sound field
To create a surround sound field, the phone uses ultra-thin and large-amplitude stereo sounds with a double-closed large sound cavity. There is also the new AI Sound Engine to enhance this effect. All of these together deliver a better stereo balance, taking the audio-visual experience to new heights. The device also supports a hands-free function to pick up sounds from up to three metres away, ensuring a clear and stable sound when making calls and video calls with HUAWEI MeeTime.
Graphene Liquid Cooling System for rapid heat dissipation
HUAWEI Mate Xs 2 adopts innovative Graphene Heat Dissipation technology with good thermal conductivity performance. Thanks to the Vapor Chamber (VC) structure, which increases the heat dissipation efficiency and performance, keeping the device cool at all times.
