Screen, body and battery

Please note that the body of the smartphone has a flip-shape form. Yes, we were not mistaken. Huawei Mate Xs is really a flip smartphone on Android. This feature of the body affects many other parameters of this model. Here is a list of the most important:

  • The smartphone has an additional 6.6-inch AMOLED-screen, which you need when the flip body is folded (all smartphones with two screens are also collected in our catalog);
  • Higher battery capacity because there is more physical space for the battery;
  • The weight of the device has become one and a half or even two times more than that of similar models;
  • The main camera can be used as a selfie camera, so you get better quality portrait photos;
