Huawei Consumer Business Group announced the debut of its flagship foldable smartphone, HUAWEI Mate Xs 2, which symbolizes Huawei’s latest foldable phone discoveries. The HUAWEI Mate Xs 2 inherits Huawei’s classic outward folding design and uses its characteristics of being ultra-light and ultra-thin, ultra-flat, and ultra-reliable to provide the best experience to consumers.
Huawei gave the HUAWEI Mate Xs 2 a beautiful unibody design with a flat and seamless fold thanks to the new generation Double-rotating Falcon Wing Hinge. The phone also has flagship features such as an industry-leading 7.8″ True-Chroma Foldable Display and a 50MP True-Chroma Camera System with HUAWEI XD Optics, elevating its already exceptional performance to new heights. HUAWEI Mate Xs 2 offers an unprecedented interactive experience with to the new dynamic folding visual effect and the updated Smart Multi-Window.
The Perfect Foldable Phone: Ultralight, ultra flat, and extremely durable The HUAWEI Mate Xs 2 are available in two timeless colors: black with a crosshatch leather texture and white with a natural leather texture. On July 27th, the flagship foldable phone will be available for pre-order through Huawei’s online platforms in the UAE. The phone’s price will be revealed at a later date during the HUAWEI FLAGSHIP PRODUCTS SUMMER LAUNCH EVENT, which will take place on July 27th, 2022.
Innovative materials: Ultra-light, ultra-flat, and super durable
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 hinge of the HUAWEI Mate Xs 2 is exquisitely built with Huawei’s self-developed ultra-light, high-strength steel, which exhibits a strong load-bearing capacity. In such a way, HUAWEI Mate Xs 2 enjoys both lighter weight and higher strength.
The HUAWEI Mate Xs 2 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 for the phone’s backplane, as well as aerospace-grade titanium alloys and ultra-light, high-strength steel for its structure. These ultra-light, innovative materials not only reduce the overall weight of the phone but also give the device excellent strength and fracture toughness.
Finally, HUAWEI Mate Xs 2 adopts a Composite Screen, which shares a similar design to anti-collision systems in cars, making it an excellent shock absorber and buffer. This shock barrier improves the phone’s flexibility and resistance to impact, giving consumers peace of mind.
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 colour calibration of more than 2000 colors in P3 full colour 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.
The unique Mirror Shooting smart function of HUAWEI Mate Xs 2 allows users to preview shots in real-time through the digital viewfinder of the camera on both screens simultaneously. 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 break through, 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. The upgraded Smart Multi-Window function brings easier interactions and higher efficiency, whereas the Split-screen function supports using two applications in parallel to improve efficiency and free operation. Moreover, Swipe Gesture supports easy access and control of the floating windows, allowing multi-tasking with one quick swipe. With its large screen and coupled hands-free function, it brings an immersive communication experience during HD video calls.
HUAWEI Mate Xs 2 continues to redefine and reform industry standards. It underpins Huawei’s leadership position in delivering innovations that grant users an extraordinary product experience, making it the ideal flagship foldable smartphone.
Contemporary design: unique unibody design that goes beyond imagination

The linear wrapping body reveals the exquisite aesthetics of the phone’s light and dainty look. Unfolded, the 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; whereas the anti-reflective Nano Optical Layer of the screen helps to reduce the display’s light reflectivity, bringing users a better reading experience under sunlight. With a 19:9 display ratio when unfolded, HUAWEI Mate Xs 2 delivers a holding experience that is comparable to non-foldable phones.
In addition, HUAWEI Mate Xs 2 comes with a half-covered matching PU Case that shares the same color as the phone, not only providing better protection but also functioning as a phone stand when required.

This creates a soft touch while reducing smudges from fingerprints.
