Huawei Mate Xs 2 latest foldable: Everything you need to know
Huawei Mate Xs 2

Chinese smartphone maker Huawei has just unveiled its latest foldable device, the Mate Xs 2. The new bendy handset follows in the footsteps of 2020's Mate Xs (and, prior to that, Mate X, which unfortunately did not see a UK launch).
While I was attending Huawei's House of Huawei event in Milan, I was able to get my hands on the Huawei Mate Xs 2. In spite of a few reservations, I was very impressed with Huawei's newest high-end foldable phone.
There is a possibility that the Mate Xs 2 will cost less when it launches in June

Huawei Mate Xs 2 latest foldable: Everything you need to know

Release date: June 2022 (Europe)What are the specifications and features of Huawei's Mate Xs 2?

In terms of outward appearance, the Huawei Mate Xs 2 does not have anything new to offer. The Mate Xs has an 8-inch screen (when unfolded) and a 6-inch fold-down screen (when folded), with a 7.8-inch 2,480 x 2,200 display. It does have a little new design feature, however, which is its coarse leather-effect back, which does not have the smooth matte back design of the Xs.
The "Falcon Wing" hinge technology is part of Huawei's folding design on the Xs 2 and, fortunately for me, I had plenty of time to fully appreciate this feature during the brand's demo event. With its smooth glide and quiet operation, it truly carries its name, gliding silently from the folded to the unfolded position. Its beautiful display, as well as its split-screen functionality, make multitasking easy.

Huawei's Mate Xs 2 Camera

Because the building was dimly lit and the camera was in night mode, it was difficult to judge the camera's quality beyond its night mode. It may have lost the Leica partnership of its predecessor, but you still have four cameras to choose from: a 50 MP main camera and a 13 MP ultrawide lens, a telephoto lens of 8 MP, and a selfie camera of 10.7 MP. Among the camera's neat features is its "Mirror Shooting" mode, which is also present on the Xs. It is very helpful for your subject to see how their portrait will look when it is being taken.

Huawei's Mate Xs 2 Battery And charging

There is an odd variation in the battery. On the whole, the phone has a bigger battery than Huawei's previous foldable phone, which had a 4600mAh battery. However, the top-spec 12+512GB model has a bigger 4880mAh battery - so either way, you're getting a bit more juice. With 66W wired charging on every model, the charging process is also faster.

Huawei's Mate Xs 2 original Xs

The Xs 2 doesn't support 5G like the Xs (with its Kirin 990 CPU). It's powered by the Snapdragon 888. While it will still be one of the most expensive smartphones on the market, the Xs don't cost as much as the original Xs. Starting at $1,999, the Huawei Mate Xs 2 will be available in the second half of this year.

Huawei Mate Xs 2 review: Early results

We will have to wait until its release in the UK to find out how much the Xs 2 will cost. If it turns out to be cheaper than its predecessor, it has a better chance of being recommended.
Huawei's handhelds suffer from frustratingly restricted software, which is the biggest downside. While the hardware might be top-notch, if the user experience falls short like recent Huawei releases, then it may be best avoided. The Huawei App Gallery is steadily improving, but it will need to do a lot more to win over prospective customers when the Mate Xs 2 goes on sale in June.
