Huawei Mate X successor is expected to be called Mate Xs.

The new model will feature a better hinge mechanism and more durable screen.

Huawei Mate Xs will be powered by the Kirin 990 SoC.

Huawei forayed into the foldable phones segment by unveiling the Huawei Mate X back in February 2019. The Huawei Mate X is also the company’s first 5G enabled phone. The company is already planning a successor to its foldable phone. The Huawei Mate Xs was even briefly showcased back in October. The company has already confirmed that the Mate Xs will be powered by the Kirin 990 5G chipset and is scheduled to arrive in China around March 2020.

The latest development comes from an interview session of Huawei Consumer Business CEO Ricard Yu with members of the press in Shenzhen. The company official said that the new Mate X will offer a Kirin 990 chipset, better hinge mechanism and more durable screen. Furthermore, he added that the new Mate X will be announced at MWC 2020 in Barcelona. For reference, MWC 2020 is scheduled for February 24-27. However, it is unclear if this new Mate X is the previously teased Mate Xs or a different device. 

Talking about the Mate X, the front display, when folded, is a 6.6-inch OLED panel with a resolution of 2480 x 1148 pixels and when unfolded, the phone turns into an 8-inch display with a resolution of 2480 X 2200pixels. The Mate X combines the rear panel and the front into a uniform display, unlike the Samsung Galaxy Fold.

On the optics front, the Huawei Mate X sports a 40MP wide-angle lens along with a 16MP ultra-wide lens and an 8MP telephoto lens. It has a body that is under 11mm thick when folded, and only 5.5mm thick when unfolded. The phone also packs a 4500mAh battery, which supports Huawei’s new Super Charge with speeds up to 55W.
