Huawei Mate XS UNBOXING

February 26, 2020 posted by


– What’s up, guys? Saf here on SuperSaf TV and we’ve got a very special
unboxing for you guys today. Here is the Huawei Mate Xs, one of the first, if not the
first unboxing in the world, so a thumbs up for that
would be appreciated. We heard about the Huawei Mate X last year which got a little bit delayed, but Huawei have gone back
and improved the Mate X and we have here the Huawei Mate Xs. Let’s go ahead, get it unboxed, and take a detailed first look. So we’ve got a black box
with the Huawei branding, Huawei Mate Xs, as well as the Leica quad camera logo. Let’s go ahead and open this up and here we have it. Okay, we’re going to put the
phone to the side for a second, see what else we get inside the box. Now everything is presented
really nicely in smaller boxes. We’ve got some USB type C earphones, a USB type C to USB type C cable, SIM card ejector tool with some paperwork, and finally there’s a 55
watt Huawei SuperCharger. Now, this is going to be able
to charge the Huawei Mate Xs from zero to 85% in just 30 minutes, and you’re also going to
be able to use this charger to charge up things like your laptop because of the fact that
it’s got 55 watt charging, absolutely awesome. Now, let’s take a look at the device. And here it is in its full glory. When it is completely folded out, we’ve got a massive
eight inch OLED display and it looks really, really good. Now when you fold it, you actually get two displays, you get the main outer display,
this is around 6.6 inches, but then as well as that, you then get a back display
which is around 6.3 inches. Now Huawei have actually
made a few improvements to this display compared to
what we had on the Mate X. Let me run you through a few of these. So firstly, this is a quad layer display, so we’ve got a few different
layers to make it protected. And also the crease is
no longer as visible as it was on the Mate X. Now Huawei are using an
aerospace-graded polymer, so this is still plastic-based, and we’re going to have to see
in terms of the durability, of course, based on other
foldable devices that we’ve seen, which normally have the
folding element inside, this is more of an outie. So we’ve got the display on the outside when you’re putting it in
and out of your pockets. That’s something that I am
a little bit concerned about but I can’t really tell you as yet, I’m going to have to use
this on a daily basis and see how that fares over time. But the improvements that Huawei have made should make this more durable compared to what we had on the Mate X. Now if you look closely, you can see that there is
a screen protector applied, so you can see the edges of it. This is not to pealed off, warning to everybody out there who’s going to try to peel it off. Do not peel this off. Now one of the biggest
advantages that you get with a display like this, which kind of falls on the outside is that when the device is closed, you’ve got a very usable 6.6 inch display. So you could very comfortably use this as a regular smartphone. But when you do want to experience that full tablet size device, then you can pop it out and you’ve got this full screen experience with no notch, or no punch,
or anything like that. Now the hinge has also been improved, so we’re getting a
pretty much flat display when it is completely out. And then it folds back on
itself a full 180 degrees. Now as well as that, we’ve got these two elements that are at the top and the
bottom of the hinge area and these will prevent any dust and debris getting in to the display. Looks very promising. I honestly cannot wait to kind
of put my SIM card into this and try using this on a daily basis. Now another very interesting
thing about the Mate Xs is that we’ve got this side bar here along the side, obviously, and this actually has a
few different purposes. So firstly, it actually kind
of acts as a bit of a handle. So you can hold the device when
it’s flat out with one hand using this as a bit of a grip. But more importantly, it houses the quad camera set up, a flash, the button, which actually
expands the device out, a volume rocker, as well as a side mounted
fingerprint scanner, which also doubles up as a power button. Now let’s talk a little
bit about these cameras. So these are quite similar to what we’ve got on the P30 Pro. So we’ve got a primary 40 megapixel camera with an f/1.8 aperture. Now this is a super sensing camera. So instead of using red, green and blue, it uses red, yellow and blue and this allows the sensor
to capture a lot more light. Huawei very big on low light photography. We then have a 16 megapixel
ultra-wide camera. This, of course, great if
you want to get a lot more into your shots. We then have an eight
megapixel telephoto camera, this is going to give you up
to three times optical zoom, up to five times hybrid zoom, which uses a combination
of optical and digital zoom and it’s also going to give you
up to 30 times digital zoom. And finally, we have a
time of flight sensor. This is going to help
with depth information. Now personally for me, the most interesting
thing about these cameras is that not only can they be
used as rear facing cameras, but they can also be used
as front facing cameras. Now because the device
falls back on itself, you can use the rear side of the display as a viewfinder for your selfies and this means you’re going to
get much better quality selfies because you are using
those rear facing cameras as front facing cameras, and you’re also getting that flexibility of using multiple lenses so you’re going to be able
to get ultra-wide selfies, you’re also going to be able to
use the time of flight sensor for your portrait selfies. Another interesting use of these cameras is that if you do have the device folded, if you’re taking pictures
of somebody else, then they’re going to be able to see what they look like from this back display while you’re taking that shot. So if you want to hand the
device over to somebody, and you want them to change
the composition a little bit, you’re going to be able to see that. So this is a very, very
cool and interesting setup. If we take a quick look around the device, when the device is folded shut it’s actually not too thick. Here you can see in
comparison to the Mate 30 Pro. And although of course it is thicker, honestly speaking for a foldable device, this is pretty good. At the bottom as part of the sidebar, there is a USB type C input. Then we’ve got a few mics. There’s a bottom firing speaker. Now we do have stereo speakers. So there is one here bottom firing and then there is one in the earpiece. At the top, we’ve got a SIM card tray. Now we do have support for dual SIM cards and then there is an IR blaster. On the right hand side,
there’s the volume rockers as well as that power button
that we looked at earlier that also doubles up as
a fingerprint scanner. Now let’s talk about the internals. This is another area where there’s been some big improvements. We now have the Kirin 990 chipset compared to the 980 that
the Mate X came with. What’s the most interesting
thing about the 990 is that it has integrated 5G capability, so you’re not going to have
to have a separate 5G modem. This is all within one chip, which is going to give
you much more efficiency when it comes to power. You do have eight gigabytes of RAM with 512 gigabytes of storage. Now let’s talk about the software. So we do have EMUI 10.1, and this is built on top
of open source Android 10. Now yes, there is still the
issue of the Google Play Store not being supported. I currently can’t talk too much about that because this device is pre-released. So I’m not sure exactly
what’s going to be happening, are we going to be getting an alternative? I’m hoping that this
issue can be sorted out. But what I can tell you is about some of the multitasking features that have been built into EMUI 10.1 to take advantage of this larger display. So initially, if you do have an app open while the device is folded, when you do unfold it, that app is automatically going to expand and utilize the full display. What you can also do is
drag from the side and hold. This is going to give you
lots of shortcuts to apps. So say for instance I want
to open a web browser, I can do that here. And then if I want to split the screen, and say for instance have
the gallery open as well, I can tap and hold and then drop that on the side. So now I’ve got two apps
open here side by side, I can also change the size. And in addition to that, if
I want to open a third app, then I can have that floating on top of both of the currently open apps. And that’s definitely an interesting use of the real estate that
you have on the Mate Xs. We also have Huawei Share built in. So if you do have another Huawei device, maybe a MateBook X, then you’re going to be able to quickly and easily
transfer images and files from the Mate Xs to the laptop
very quickly and easily. Now let’s talk about the battery. So we do have a 4500 milliamp battery. It’s actually split in two because of the folding
nature of this device. We’ll have to see how
long that’s going to last. As mentioned, you do get
that 55 watts supercharging, which is absolutely insane. Now in terms of pricing and availability, I’ve not been given
that information as yet. As soon as I had that, I’ll be dropping that down
below as a pinned comment as well as in the description. I’d assume it’s going to be coming in similarly to what we had
the Mate X as last year. And there we have it, guys,
that is the Huawei Mate Xs. A very interesting device for me. It’s something that
I’ve wanted to check out for a very long time. It’s a very different approach
to the foldable smartphone. It folds on the outside which
has a lot of advantages, but it also has a lot of question marks. How durable is this going
to be on the day-to-day considering that the screen
is always going to be exposed going in and out of your pocket? How is the software going to be? These are things that we’re
going to have to look at in the full review. What do you guys think
of the Huawei Mate Xs? Definitely drop me a comment below. Let me know your thoughts. If you want to see lots more
coverage with the Mate Xs as well as lots of other devices. Now, be sure to subscribe
and hit that bell icon so you don’t miss any of it. I hope you enjoyed this
video and found it useful. If you did, then do hit that
thumbs up button for me. Thanks for watching. This Saf from SuperSaf TV. I’ll see you next time. (upbeat music)

  72. Vas Me says:

    Garbage design . That wont last long

  73. Vas Me says:

  74. Raj Singhania says:

    I like z flip
    Other than any foldable phone
    Stil dont have good cam
    Or prcessor but good
    Idea is small flip

  75. MrElectrifyer says:

    Nice device, but still can't trust it knowing it's made by Huawei and China's intelligence law, article 11 to be specific, literally makes it obligatory that every Chinese organization spies on foreign individuals and organizations they do business with…

  76. David Lee says:

    The problem with an outside folding phone with an oled screen is the inevitable burn in with half the screen off all the time

  77. John Jeddyson says:

    Hey Saf. Just wanted to say that the mate is a really decent phone folded up. 6.6in screen is plenty.

  78. Zain Uddin says:

    Foldable phones are not my thing

  79. sneeky Gamer772 says:

    whenever I see the Kirin name I think Karen… I don't know why

  80. DatBoyC 88 says:

    It looks super futuristic and better than the Galaxy Fold 1 with that larger outside screen and better selfie camera since it's the same main camera folded. The issues are durability and that HUGE PRICE !

  81. The Rebel says:

    Lambo with no engine

  82. Chanandler Bong says:

    Still that kind of earphone???

  83. skm Jesus says:

    SO far Huawei has done it the best

  84. Rob Wightman says:

    If the x was a belly button it would be an outy

  85. Runako Hayes says:

    now this is a foldable that makes sense. not that garbage samsung made. a phone that unfolds to a tablet…well done hwawei.

  86. Matteo Clementi says:

    Fold got a better concept in my opinion.

  87. Mayank Verma says:

    Samsung crying that their fold phone broke, Huawei out here showing off that they fixed it 🤣

  88. Hafiz Masoud{Gmail}CPA,GroupCFO says:

    Foldable Devices Have Stupid Design and have no future

  89. Cun Xu says:

    Why is there so many people trying to convince others that this is bad

    Everyone realizes the disadvantages of an outward fold but maybe some people just like it as a tech product made to compete

    If yall Samsung fans love the Galaxy Fold so much just go love that and stop shitting at everything else and just let huawei fans or other tech fans enjoy this or that and the other way around

    Also comparing your favorite corporate entities while not even having the product that they made is stupid

  90. bander fd says:

    Like for u not for Huawei

  91. Fox Hound says:

    I like this Mate X more than Samsung Fold

  92. Michael says:

    It's good how this foldable is phone first and foldable 2nd. The Samsung is a foldable first and phone 2nd, the Samsung is pretty shit using when it's folded. That's why the Huawei wins

  93. Alex1989m says:

    Definitely the only foldable device so far that I actually really like

  94. Markovicsable says:

    based on the video tests of foldable glasses it is clear they (huawei, samsung) should use this form factor if they want to use real (not ultra mega thin) glass on the foldable gadgets.

  95. Ivan West says:

    Just………….no

  96. steve Chou says:

    haha. I will buy one.

  97. BlueTwist _ says:

    You can't use any case and the hole phone is covered with screen… What a great design sarcasm
