HUAWEI opened a new chapter in foldable innovation with its latest HUAWEI Mate Xs 2. The premium foldable smartphone built with the craftsmanship and flagship innovation that empower users with the flexibility and versatility needed for today’s fast-paced world.
Having a massive panel like this in your pocket unlocks plenty possibilities, such as tablet-like multi-tasking and a far better gaming and productivity experience. HUAWEI is looking to capitalise on this with a fully evolved design that packs improved internals, upgraded materials and a new, fashionable aesthetic
Here’s a sneak peek at what’s new about the latest Mate Xs 2:
Combination of Innovative ultra-light materials and minimalist design
One thing that sets the HUAWEI Mate Xs 2 apart from most other folding phones is that it folds seamlessly without any gap. It also has a thin and light build making the phone easy to carry around. The result is a phone with all the benefits of a normal phone but in a small package that is easy to fit in a mini bag or in your pocket.
It is also an epoch-making large foldable phone that addresses the major criticisms of increased weight and thickness and poor durability, by using a number of cutting-edge technologies. Innovative ultra-light materials and minimalist design are combined to ensure that the HUAWEI Mate Xs 2 is as light and thin as a regular slate phone, allowing it fit in your palm and slip into any pocket with unprecedented ease.
Weighing only 255g with a thickness of 5.4mm when unfolded, the smartphone gives users the ultimate experience in handheld usability. When unfolded, it adopts a clean and exquisite outward folding design that gives an elegant unibody look. What’s more, the ultra-light glass fibres reduce the overall weight, while providing excellent strength and durability.
Lightweight yet powerful
HUAWEI strives to strike a balance between weight, reliability and product competitiveness throughout the product development process from initial architecture design to functional module selection and movement mechanism evaluation. The HUAWEI Mate Xs 2 uses a superior architecture solution for its frame, hinge, and screen support components to reduce its weight.
Based on its previous experience in designing foldable phones, the brand managed to apply appropriate structures to the right places to achieve optimal mechanical and electromagnetic performance. The optimal minimalist design is achieved through a streamlined hinge mechanism and cellular-shape screen support.
Streamlined hinge mechanism: Weight was reduced by replacing high-density hinge material with lower density material, as commonly done for other non-movable components. Furthermore, hinges contain a wide range of parts, and it is necessary to simplify the folding mechanism and minimize the number of components in a hinge. The next-generation metal injection molding (MIM) ultra-light high strength steel is used for key parts of the hinge of the HUAWEI Mate Xs 2. At the same time, the density of the material is made as low as possible. The number of key parts on the hinge is reduced by 35% compared with the previous generation, making an extremely minimalist design possible.
Cellular-shape screen support: The HUAWEI Mate Xs 2 uses a cellular-shape screen support structure to reduce weight without sacrificing reliability.
3D Fiberglass process: HUAWEI innovatively applies the 3D Fiberglass process to the battery cover, producing textures with a thickness of less than 0.5 mm by means of hot pressing.
As light as a slate phone, the foldable phone fulfills more user needs. The aspect ratios of the phone when folded and unfolded are 8:7.1 and 19:9, respectively. With more contact area between your hands and the phone, you can enjoy a better grip experience. Being that light, the phone can slip into your pocket with unprecedented ease.

AppGallery offers a comprehensive range of premium apps such as AirAsia, Agoda, MAE by Maybank2u, Touch ‘n Go eWallet, Newswav, The Star and more for users to get the most out of their smartphone.
Combined with an elegant and lightweight design, the phone offers a wonderful and natural grip experience. The HUAWEI Mate Xs 2 marks another milestone in foldable phone development. Thanks to the efforts made to further reduce the weight of its foldable flagship, Huawei manages to once again bring the industry to a new height, providing consumers with a brand-new foldable phone experience.
