Recently, Huawei has affirmed that it is going to launch an upgraded version of the Mate X foldable phone, in the first quarter of 2020, called the Huawei Mate Xs.
Now, Huawei Mate Xs has obtained the mandatory 3C certification in China that hints that it will be soon unveiled. The Mate Xs is said to develop upon the Huawei Mate X by providing a refined hinge mechanism, a faster processor, and an overall extra durable and resilient build, but the design of the new phone will remain similar to that of the predecessor.
ITHome reported that a Huawei smartphone, bearing the model number TAH-AN00m may be named as the Huawei Mate Xs is certified by 3C in China. The certification listing of the phone suggests that it will support 65W fast charging, placing it in the same group as Oppo’s proprietary 65W charging technology that was seen recently on the Oppo Reno 3C, and also similar ones on Xiaomi phones next year.
The Mate Xs confirms to carry the in-house Kirin 990 SoC that is available with an integrated 5G modem with dual-mode 5G (SA + NSA) connectivity support.
In addition, the Huawei Mate X equips the Kirin 980 SoC with a separate Balong 5000 modem to facilitate 5G connectivity.
Apart from a faster processor, the Mate Xs is also supposed to bring some changes in the design compared to its predecessor phone, such as a more efficient hinge mechanism. Moreover, it will feature a more durable display technology compared to the Huawei Mate X.
The changes in design will not be significant on the surface, but the Huawei Mate Xs will surely be a substantial faster phone on the inside and will possibly sport the HMS core without any installed Google’s suite of apps on the Mate Xs.
