As per reports, Huawei will announce the Mate XS foldable smartphone at the event. Previously, the Mate Xs was scheduled to launch during MWC 2020 but as the event is now canceled.
Huawei Mate Xs was earlier spotted on TENAA with model number TAH-AN00m in the 5G smartphone category. MateXswill be a 5G device and will carry the support for SA and NSA 5G network.
Huawei Mate Xs may be priced lower than Mate X foldable smartphone that was announced last year. The upcoming phone is expected to have better specs and build quality compared to the Mate X. This is because of the improvements in the production process of the screen. It is, however, to be seen if the phone will come with the Google Play services and Google Android operating system or not after it launches.
