Huawei has revamped its folding smartphone to bring the Mate Xs with an improved screen, mechanical hinge design and a Quad Camera system that features a 40MP main camera.

The Huawei Mate Xs features a 6.6-inch main screen as well as a 6.38-inch secondary screen then when unfolded, the smartphone becomes an 8-inch tablet. To unfold the device, there's an accessible button on the sidebar which releases the physical clasp that secures the Mate Xs in its smaller size. 

It's powered by a Kirin 990 5G chipset and graphics processing is handled by the 16-core Mali-G76 GPU.

As for the cameras, which tend to be standout features on Huawei handsets, they are arranged in a vertical line along the sidebar and there are 4 to choose from: 40MP main camera (wide-angle, f/1.8), 16MP ultra-wide angle camera (f/2.2), 8MP telephoto camera (f/2.4, OIS) and a 3D Depth Sensing Camera for bokeh-filled portraits.

The camera system supports a combination of OIS and AI Image Stabilisation, up to 30x hybrid zoom and ISO options up to ISO204800. The Leica brand is also featured. For selfies, users just need to reverse the secondary screen and they can use the SuperSensing Leica Quad Camera system for capturing self-portraits.

One thing we won't see on the Mate Xs is Google's range apps or its version of Android because of the on-going issues with the USA and Huawei.  

The Huawei Mate Xs will be available with an MSRP of £2,299 which is quite a bit more expensive than the Samsung Galaxy Fold and Galaxy Z Flip

We did expect to see the Huawei Mate Xs launched at the Mobile World Congress but due to coronavirus fears, the show was cancelled.
