Huawei Mate Xs : Unlike other vendors, recently Huawei has not released too many new smartphones to the market. Maybe this is the impact of Google services.
Yes, as we all know that a number of the latest Huawei cellphones no longer have Google service support due to sanctions imposed by the US government.
But despite this, Huawei still continues to struggle by presenting a variety of phones ranging from low-end to superior models.
The latest news says that the Chinese company is preparing to launch its new foldable cellphone, dubbed Huawei Mate Xs 2.
Through a post on Weibo, Huawei announced that it would release the Huawei Mate Xs 2 on April 28, 2022.
As the name implies, this is a folding cellphone that is the successor of the Huawei Mate Xs which was announced in 2020. But unfortunately, not so many leaks regarding the specifications of this device.
Reporting from GSM Arena, the Mate Xs 2 is said to be carrying the model number PAL-AL00 which will be powered by the Kirin 9000 chipset and run the latest version of the HarmonyOS operating system.
For your information, the Kirin 9000 is Huawei’s own SoC which was introduced in 2020. This SoC is said to be able to surpass the performance of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 865+ and also Apple’s A13 Bionic.
Even though it’s now the era of Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 and Apple A15 Bionic, the Kirin 9000 is still quite capable for a flagship phone in the Huawei Mate Xs 2 class.
On the other hand, Huawei is also scheduled to release the Nova Y70 Plus mid-range phone in South Africa early next month.
The successor of the Nova Y60 is confirmed to have a 6.75-inch LCD screen with waterdrop-shaped bangs that accommodates an 8 MP camera sensor for selfies and video calls.
The type of chipset used is not mentioned, but the Huawei South African website reveals that the Nova Y70 Plus will have 128 GB of internal memory and is supported by a 6,000 mAh battery with 22.5W fast charging capability.
