Huawei Mate Xs foldable phone available for pre-order on March 14 for $3,999

Huawei has announced its impressive Mate Xs luxury foldable device – a smartphone that folds out to offer an 8-inch tablet-size screen – will be available for pre-order from March 14 and will be priced at $3999.

This will make the Mate Xs the most expensive smartphone ever offered in Australia.

Tech Guide has taken a hands-on look at the device which has a front 6.6-inch display, a rear 6.38-inch display which then folds out to reveal an 8-inch screen.

The 5G smartphone is powered by Huawei’s very own Kirin 990 processor and features a 40-megapixel Leica quad-camera.

“We’re excited to bring the HUAWEI Mate Xs to Australia. Ideal for tech seekers or anyone who craves performance, design and usability,” says Larking Huang, Managing Director of Huawei Consumer Business Group in Australia.

“Australian consumers will benefit from an unprecedented, immersive experience, all at the touch of their fingertips.

“Offering large dual displays, ultra-slim foldable form and all-day usage – Australians will be able to do business on the go or watch movies.”

The outside of the device is made up of the flexible Aerospace Flex Display which is 80 per cent more durable than a single layer design but without compromising the screen quality and colour saturation.

The Huawei Mate Xs will be available in Interstellar Blue and will be priced at $3,999.
