Huawei Mate Xs vs. Mate X2

The Mate X2 brings a different design this time around. One of the big differences is on the cameras. This one has its own front camera as well as a 50 MP Ultra Vision Camera rear camera. Huawei has also gone with an extra option on the storage department. The new Mate X2 offers a 256GB version. The Mate Xs only offers 512GB.

The price is a big difference as well. The Mate Xs launched with a price similar to the 2019 Mate X. The price of that phone was about $2,400, which is much more than any other foldable phone. The Mate X2 is even more expensive, with a price of about $2,800.
