Huawei Mate Xs specifications
Huawei Mate Xs and Mate X designs are almost similar, both the phones have outward display fold. The screen size of Mate X is 8 inches when unfolded and while folding the display size is 6.6-inch. The phone also has a display on the back in 6.4-inch size which is visible while the phone is folded. It is expected Mate x will carry the same design ratios.
Huawei Mate Xs will be launched with Kirin 990 5G chipset, unlike Huawei Mate X. Mate X has 7-nanometer HiSilicon Kirin 980 chipset. The company did not reveal much information about the specification of the phone Mate Xs. More details of the phone might be released in the coming months before the launch.
However as the Mate Xs is influenced by Mate X design, we might assume that the feature will be similar but in updates versions just like its processor.

Huawei said they were working on the design of these foldable phones for the last three years. It was a difficult task to achieve the perfection of foldable phone without any issue. The company already introduced the Mate X at MWC 2019 in February but the launch was delayed for several unknown reasons.
The Huawei mate X is launching in the company’s home market China for the initial stage. There is no confirmation or announcement when the phone will be available for the rest of the countries. The price of the phone is sourced to cost around $2,600 which is undoubtedly expensive. Whereas, Samsung already launched a foldable phone for $1,980 in the market this year but it has come up with some issues. Now we have to wait for Huawei foldable phone to roll out. Soon the users will know if the price of the phone is worth it.
