Huawei’s best foldable hardware ever

The best and most interesting part of the Huawei Mate Xs 2 is its OLED display, which offers up to 7.8-inches of screen real estate when expanded and 6.5-inches when folded. The resolution of both the screens is 2480 x 2200 pixels and 2480 x 1176 pixels respectively. Both screens offer refresh rates of up to 120Hz and touch sampling rates of up to 240Hz for a smooth scrolling experience.

As for size, the entire package comes in at 156.5mm in length, with a width of 139.3mm when expanded, and a little more than half that at 75.5mm when folded. In terms of thickness, the Huawei Mate Xs 2 measures 5.4mm when unfolded and 11.1mm when folded. It also closes completely, when folded there is no gap between the display and the body of the phone.

In the camera department, the Huawei Mate Xs 2 offers a variety of different cameras, with the primary wide shooter coming in at 50MP at f/1.8. Additional cameras include a 13MP ultra-wide at f/2.2 aperture and an 8MP telephoto camera with optical image stabilization (OIS) and both an f/2.4 aperture.

However, the biggest difference from its predecessor is the addition of a front-facing camera located in the display with a resolution of 10.7MP and an f/2.2 aperture. It supports the company’s M-Pen 2S for drawing, and lastly, the phone will be powered by HarmonyOS 2.
