Huawei Mate Xs 5G sold out in UAE

Huawei Mate Xs 5G is the first 5G Foldable Smartphone

Last updated:

The Huawei Mate Xs 5G pre-orders opened up in the UAE on Sunday and the company today announced that the foldable smartphone has sold out in pre-orders across all of its official channels.

“The UAE is a well-known luxury hub for its demand in collectible products such as automobiles, fashion and leisure. In recent years, the trend has broadened to include premium devices in consumer technology,” Huawei said.

“The high demand for the Huawei Mate Xs in the UAE is a testament to this change in the market where there is an increase in early adopters who are willing to purchase luxury technology.”

Huawei Mate Xs 5G comes with a Kirin 990 5G chipset, 8GB of RAM, 512GB of internal storage, and a 4,500mAh split battery. When folded, you get a 6.6-inch almost bezel-free front display and 6.38-inch rear display.

Huawei Mate Xs 5G retains the same 8-inch display as seen last year, but with some improvements made to the display structure, which is made of two layers of aerospace-grade polymide that’s been fused together with an optically clear adhesive, which Huawei says makes it durable enough while allowing for high image quality.

AI is handled by a three-core Da Vinci NPU architecture based on two big cores and a tiny core. The chip also includes sub-6GHz 5G NSA and SA support, and 5G+4G dual sim dual standby, though it will notably only support the N41 (2.5-2.69GHz) 5G band at launch, adding additional bands in a future over-the-air update.

Huawei has also enhanced the Falcon Wing back-to-back folding design, which feels smoother and more stable than on the previous model.

Running on EMUI10, the Mate Xs 5G has a multi-window function, which allows for two apps to be displayed side-by-side – and interact with each other. In other words, text, images and documents can be transferred simply by dragging and dropping content from one app to another.

It will also allow for up to 30x zoom and instead of just relying on the rear cam for selfies, the Mate Xs lets users take self-portraits using the secondary screen as well.
