Those looking for a brand new cellphone in the next couple of months can look forward to Huawei Mate Xs, the successor of foldable Mate X. The cellphone will come with a number of enhancements and will be officially announced during the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2020.
Thanks to a superior hinge mechanism, closing and opening the phone’s lid will be easy and intuitive. In addition, the Mate Xs is expected to sport a resistant screen that is sturdier than Mate X. It will first be available in China in 2020 but it is not clear when the device will be available elsewhere in the world. Huawei usually launches its products soon after they are available in China.
How the Huawei Mate Xs is expected to fare against its predecessor
The cellphone is expected to run on the Kirin 990 processor. Huawei confirmed this fact during a press interaction. Huawei has not revealed other features and specifications but one can expect better camera, more intuitive user interface, and sturdier build. One can also expect the phone to possess a better battery. Many had complained about Mate X not having a very good battery life.
Huawei certainly seems to be banking on this model for future growth, as sales have been dismal ever since Mate X was launched a while ago. In fact, people did not receive Mate X very well due to its perceived defects and lack of features. Mate Xs may come with better features over its predecessor, and help change the tide against Huawei in its favor. It wouldn’t be an exaggeration to say that Mate Xs may make or break Huawei’s profits in 2020.
Huawei’s predicament in low cost markets
Huawei is increasingly in demand in low cost markets due to its affordability and excellent customer service. However, some have complained about difficulties in finding service centers and assistance in their countries. As the company seeks to grow internationally, one can expect more service centers to open up in the near future. Currently, the company is investing heavily in countries across Middle East, Africa and India. In addition, more stores are expected to spring up across the US as well.
