Yesterday, Huawei introduced in its native Chinatablet smartphone with a flexible screen Huawei Mate Xs 2. The novelty can and should be considered a successor to the traditions of the 2020 Huawei Mate Xs model. In fact, extensive development. More powerful, but somewhat smaller and lighter.
The screen is one, but, lo and behold, it bends outward. Those.in the “tablet” position with the screen unfolded, you have a normal standard compact tablet with a diagonal of 7.8″ (195 cm²). When the screen is bent, you find yourself holding a smartphone with a screen on both sides (6.5″, 106 cm²). An idea that my mind finds hard to accept. But, on the other hand, there is no need to install a separate external screen. It's cheaper, and the dimensions are smaller.
OLED matrix, high resolution - 2200 × 2480 (425 ppi), plus a refresh rate of up to 120 Hz. A small round hole for the front camera.
The iron filling is powerful ... But not the most powerful.Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 2020, and even cut off support for 5G networks. That is, it is clear that AnTuTu will have about 800 thousand points, and this is still a lot. But for a smartphone for such solid money to have a non-top chipset - this is somehow ... wrong.
Memory.8 or 12 GB operational, 256 or 512 GB permanent. There is support for memory cards. But not traditional Micro-SD, but branded NM-Card. I have already begun to forget about their existence, but no, I'm alive, smoking room! The older version, 12 + 512 GB, is called the “collector's edition” (“典藏版”, “Collector's Edition”) and features a slightly larger battery - 4880 mAh instead of 4600 mAh. Charging is equally fast, 66 watts.
The set of cameras is solid. The front camera has a resolution of 10.7 MP. Plus a trio of main cameras 50 + 13 + 8 MP - main, wide-angle and telephoto with a threefold increase and optical stabilization.
The fingerprint scanner is located on the side. There is an NFC module, a sixth Wi-Fi, a barometer. Declared support for branded styluses.
It is difficult to call the cost humane.Although where have we ever seen cheap flexible smartphones? ¥9999 (₽110000, $1520), ¥11499 (₽126000, $1740) and ¥12999 (₽142000, $1970) for the 8+256, 8+512 and 12+512 GB versions respectively.
