Flexible phones want to become the trend
from the phone market. Currently the brands that are betting more on
this technology are Samsung, Huawei and Motorola, and for now only Huawei and
Samsung have 2 models in the market, although in the case of the Chinese firm its
The first device of these characteristics remained only in its native country.
But this does not happen with the Huawei Mate Xs, which is basically a vitamin version of Mate X, because at the design level they are very similar, although the new version is slightly more powerful and resistant.
Being very punctual we can say that the main difference between the Huawei Mate X and the Huawei Mate Xs is its processor, since the first version had the Kirin 980, while this model includes the Kirin 990, that is, the same chipset that was mounted on the Huawei Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro.
The firm's new team is also 5G and promises to be more
resistant thanks to a new liquid metal that makes 30% more resistant the
device compared to the previous model that only had alloy
How much does the Mate Xs cost?
What surprised us is that the new Huawei phone
It is more expensive than other flexible equipment, in fact, it has exceeded the price of
Launch of Mate X last year.
The Chinese firm has mentioned that its price will be 2499 euros, that at the exchange rate will be basically 52 thousand pesos.
This does not mean that this is the official price in Mexico, as we must consider several factors, including the Google case.
If you look at the latest releases of the brand we can see that the company's phones are sold at a lower price than the price announced in Europe considering only the exchange rate. On average the price falls between 1,500 and 2,000 pesos, So in case the Huawei Mate Xs is sold in Mexico, then the price may be lower in our country, although this will still be a phone that few can afford.
If we add to this that the Mate Xs will not have the services of Google, then the Chinese firm may bet on a strategy similar to that of the Mate 30 Pro, which means that it may still be priced lower than that of its competitors To make this phone attractive, then, although the HMS (Huawei Mobile Services) continue to improve, they are not yet at the level of Google Mobile Services.
If we consider that the Galaxy Fold costs 48 thousand pesos, and
that the Galaxy Flip sells for 33 thousand pesos, then the Mate Xs could
cost about 45 thousand pesos, so it will be cheaper than the Fold, and
although it will be more expensive than the Z Flip, the Mate Xs will have better
specifications and will be the only flexible phone completely ready for
operate on the 5G network in Mexico (although networks are not yet available).
Huawei has mentioned that this phones reach many
world markets, so we will probably see it in Mexico in some
moment of the year.
