When Richard Yu claimed that the folding screen of Huawei Mate Xs was more valuable than gold, it was not a mere marketing phrase. According to the Chinese website MyDrivers, the Mate Xs screen has a very high cost, and can be up to four times more expensive than gold.
The publication gave the example of a gram of gold worth $ 64 (€ 57.87), depending on the carat of the gram. In any case, the comparison continued with the Mate Xs screen, whose materials cost $ 257 (€ 232.40) per gram.
Although the isolated weight of the Huawei Mate Xs screen is unknown, this information makes the foldable one of the most expensive devices currently on the market. This was the sequel to the original Huawei Mate X, with an updated processor and improved build quality.
Huawei claims to use metal and titanium on the hinges of the Huawei Mate Xs
At the Mate Xs presentation, Richard Yu stressed the impressive build quality of the Mate Xs. To achieve durability and strength at the hinge, the CEO said that Huawei used metal and titanium in the most structurally important parts of the folding, in order to guarantee build quality.
Regarding the screen, the company claims to use a double polymer structure, developed by Huawei itself. This structure is glued with a special adhesive, in order to unify the entire screen and keep it with good visual quality, for the user. Whether it’s true or just hyperbole for marketing, Huawei seems to have done a good job with the Huawei Mate Xs.
