Huawei recently introduced its second foldable smartphone, the Mate Xs, which comes with major improvements when compared to its predecessor. However, it continues to present a price that will certainly not be available to most users, costing € 2,500.

Still, the Huawei Mate Xs has already managed to reach an unbelievable number of reservations in China, where almost half a million reservations were registered. The reservations were all made online, through the brand’s official store, JD.com and Suning.

However, it is important to note that these records are only reservations and not pre-purchases. As such, they do not require the payment of any deposit, making it much easier to reach this type of numbers.

Huawei Mate Xs presents a fantastic design and specifications at the highest level

As we revealed during our first impressions, the Huawie Mate Xs has a fantastic design, which offers a unique user experience. Thanks to its fold-out mechanism, when closed, users can enjoy a 6.6 “inch screen.

This way, you won’t need to “settle” for a mini screen that gives little or nothing to do. When opened, Mate Xs offers a huge 8 “inch screen that will allow you to enjoy medium content and considerably increase the level of productivity in several actions.

In the case of the Chinese market, Huawei Mate Xs will be available for purchase from March 5. It will certainly be interesting to see how many of these reserves will eventually become purchases.

Regarding the UK’s market, as attractive as this foldable smartphone may be, it is difficult to imagine a great demand for a smartphone that costs much more than the average salary in the country.
