We can all agree 2019 was the year of foldable phones and they are not going away in 2020. Actually, next year we will see more and more foldable phones from various phone makers, such as Samsung, Motorola and Xiaomi.
Nearly two months ago, Huawei has announced at an event in Shenzhen that they will release a Mate Xs in March 2020 for those that want to have the Kirin 990 version of the Mate X.
As we were waiting for a few more details on the upcoming foldable smartphone, we have spotted Huawei received a certification from the Chinese 3C regulator.
You can check out the certification below in the photo, which also reveals a few more details about the features Mate Xs will bring.
Huawei Mate Xs: Faster Processor, Better Hinge Mechanism, Better Build, 65W Fast Charging Support
It is said the Mate Xs will be an improvement over Mate X, considering it brings a better processor – Kirin 990 SoC that has an integrated 5G modem and dual-mode 5G (SA + NSA) connectivity support.
The model number TAH-AN00m (where the codename for Mate X is Tahiti, thus TAH for short), seems to be the Mate Xs, according to ITHome’s report, and we also see that it supports 65W fast charging – 20V/3.25A.
Aside from the faster processor and the specs we mentioned above, Huawei Mate Xs will also have a more efficient hinge mechanism and an more durable display tech than what the Mate X has. Although users will not be able to see these changes on the surface, they should see that it is a lot faster than its predecessor.
We should see the Mate Xs at MWC 2020 in Barcelona, when Huawei will likely announce it. According to XDA Developers, the Mate Xs should be available for purchase in the second half of the year.
