Huawei recently stormed the Chinese smartphone market with its latest foldable phone – the Huawei Mate Xs 2. Now, at the company’s global event, the Huawei Mate Xs 2 has been announced for imminent launch in the global market. The Huawei Mate Xs 2 comes packing a gargantuan 7.8-inch foldable OLED panel with 120 Hz refresh rate support. In its unfolded state, the phone somewhat resembles regular candy bar-style phones. The display, in the folded state, is a manageable 6.5-inches. Huawei also announced several smartwatches and fitness trackers at this event, but, naturally, the foldable wonder – the Huawei Mate Xs 2 – was the star of the show.
