Beijing, Dec 19 (IANS) Chinese smartphone giant Huawei will unveil the successor to its foldable Mate X — the Mate Xs — at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2020.
The Mate Xs will come with a number of improvements, according to Huawei Consumer Group CEO Richard Yu.
This new version of the Huawei Mate X foldable display-toting smartphone was first revealed in February of 2019.
That'd make a 1-year birthday party seem obvious — though the exact timing of the event at which we'll see this new Huawei Mate Xs was not pinpointed. We're expecting we'll see Huawei Mate Xs at a Huawei presentation at Mobile World Congress 2020, Slash Gear reported on Wednesday.
According to Yu, the Mate Xs will have an improved hinge mechanism along with a more resistant screen.
Similar to the original Mate X, the Mate Xs will launch without access to Google services and apps.
Yu mentioned a possible European release of the device (the original Mate X has yet to receive a release outside of China), however, he did not elaborate further. The Mate Xs is expected to launch in the company's homeland in March 2020, according to Tech Radar.
