The Huawei Mate Xs foldable phone was recently spotted on the 3C certification site and now has been spotted on TENAA with the same model number. While the listing is not yet populated with specifications and images, it is reportedly going to be cheaper than the Huawei Mate X and will include adjustments in design as well. The Mate Xs has been spotted on TENAA with model number TAH-AN00m and is listed to come with 5G dual-band support.
Apart from this bit of information, the TENAA listing of the upcoming Huawei device reveals little as of now. The listing currently only suggests that the phone will offer 5G connectivity with support for dual-band (NSA and SA) networks in China. The TENAA listing was first reported by media outlets in China.
Also, according to some past reports, the Huawei Mate Xs is expected to be unveiled at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2020 with an improved hinge design and a stronger display. It is expected to be cheaper than the Huawei Mate X foldable phone, which means it will be priced lesser than CNY 16,999 (approximately Rs. 1,76,000). The Huawei Mate Xs is also rumoured to feature a small overall footprint than the Mate X, but the display size should remain the same.
Not just that, but Huawei Consumer Group CEO Richard Yu has also sort of confirmed that the Mate Xs will be powered by the Kirin 990 SoC, and will launch without access to Google services and apps. The phone’s 3C certification listing mentions the foldable phone to support 65W fast charging as well. The phone appears to have Leica optics, much like the Mate X.
The Huawei Mate X was announced in February last year at MWC 2019, and the phone sports an OLED FullView Display panel on the outer body that helps transform the hardware into an 8-inch tablet. The phone is powered by the Kirin 980 SoC with a separate Balong 5000 modem to allow 5G connectivity.
