The Huawei Mate Xs 2 will be released next week as the Chinese company’s latest foldable phone. Huawei’s official teaser posters have already confirmed the April 28 launch date.
The teaser reveals little about the foldable’s design, but thanks to leaked press images, we now have a much better look.
We now have even more information, thanks to renowned display supply chain analyst Ross Young. The CEO of Display Supply Chain Consultants (DSCC) has revealed not only display specifications for the Mate Xs 2, but also a possible price.
According to the analyst, the upcoming foldable will have an upgraded 120Hz display, but it will be an LTPS panel rather than an LTPO panel. This means that for battery efficiency, the refresh rate will not be reduced all the way to 10Hz or 1Hz. We may still see variable refresh rates as low as 60Hz, but that remains to be seen.
Furthermore, despite using last year’s hardware (Kirin 9000/Snapdragon 888), the Mate Xs 2 could be one of the most expensive foldable on the market at around $2500. This places it above Samsung’s most costly foldable, the Galaxy Z Fold 3, which debuted at $1800.
However, there has been no confirmation of any of this information, so take it with a grain of salt.
