The Huawei Mate Xs was previously announced as awaiting a March 2020 release. It looks like the sequel to the company’s first foldable phone will be making another appearance MWC next year.
Frandroid reports that Huawei CEO Richard Yu confirmed the device’s appearance at MWC 2020. He also mentioned an improved hinge mechanism and a more resistant display on the foldable phone. This is in addition to the Kirin 990, the inclusion of which was announced previously.
Yu also mentioned a possible release in Europe, but did not specify an exact date. It is likely the Huawei Mate Xs will enter the Chinese market in March 2020 as initially announced, but its status elsewhere remains unknown. According to Frandroid, Yu said he would like to see a release in Q1 of 2020. Incidentally, the original Mate X has not reached other markets beyond China.
Further into the future, though, Yu has confirmed that Huawei is willing to make more foldable phones. He also said that we wants future devices to be lighter than the ones that are currently in the market. That said, the only other foldable phone that’s in the market right now is the Samsung Galaxy Fold.
