Despite offering fascinating features, the new Matte X is of no use to the European and American market as the phone comes without Google apps.

Although the device has the same outwards-folding display, 4500 mAh battery, and a 5G connectivity option as its predecessor, it has made several key distinctions. For example, the processor has been updated to Huawei’s latest Kirin 990. In addition to this, to protect the screen from inevitable scratches, special polyamide material has been utilized. This makes the screen far more resistant to unfortunate accidents.

Previously the rare camera count was 3, but now it has been upgraded to 4. Hence, take as many selfies as you need with the rear camera! The rear camera comes with a 40-megapixel main sensor and a 16-megapixel wide-angle sensor.

With so many exceptional changes, the price was bound to increase as well. The Huawei Mate Xs costs around $2,700. There’s no confirmation regarding additional versions of this device.

However, the question remains: Will the new Huawei Mate Xs have the same fate as its predecessor?

Tech enthusiasts would predict yes as the lack of Google services is enough to kill the buzz. This, combined with an extremely expensive bill, will definitely reduce the appeal for the majority of the customers.

However, you can’t deny that it is quite a fascinating device. Engadget assures that Mate Xs look handsome. However, the absence of the Google Play App Store is a big miss.

Considering the tensions between China and the USA, it seems almost unlikely that Huawei’s new line will be released in America.
