Processor & Memory

You will get a fast & power processor CPU HUAWEI Kirin 990 5G with 8 cores (Octa-core) 2 x Cortex-A76 Based 2.86 GHz + 2 x Cortex-A76 Based 2.36 GHz + 4 x Cortex-A55 1.95 GHz. GPU speed is 16-Core Mali-G76 and NPU is
Dual Big Core + Tiny Core NPUs (Neural-network Processing Unit). This phone powers by Android 10.0 Operating System.

Let’s talk about phone memory which is 8 GB RAM + 512 GB ROM that handles multiple tasks without any roadblock. The available internal storage may be smaller as part of the internal storage is occupied by software. Actual memory space may change due to app updates, user operations, and other related factors. You can get enough extra space with external Memory Support up to 256 GB NM SD Card which customers need to buy separately.


Next big talk about the camera, hold your breath because this is a tuff part. Huawei Mate Xs Rear Camera is Leica Quad Camera with 40 MP Wide Angle Lens and f/1.8 aperture plus 16 MP Ultra Wide Angle Lens, f/2.2 aperture + 8 MP telephoto, f/2.4 aperture, OIS. This is amazing!!!

I still have my doubts about picture quality and I have yet to really see how the camera behaves between different color contrast and dim light. Another big challenge is software and apps behavior between folds that are going to be a bigger deal for Huawei fold. HUAWEI supports autofocus and contrast focus on Time-of-Flight (TOF) Camera. Huawei is loaded with Artificial Intelligence support image stabilization (AIS) so in different photo modes, the number of pixels may be slightly different, it depends on a real scenario. Shooting mode determines the photo pixels and may vary depending on the setting.

The front or selfie camera doubles as the front camera after the phone is folded. The photo pixels may differ based on the shooting mode and camera settings.


Nowadays it’s all about power and speed. In the age of battery-powered cars like Tesla, smartphone Battery makes a whole lot of difference.

One reason you should consider any smartphone apart from the screen and camera is the big battery to last forever. This phone is powered by a 4,500mAh battery, capacity is the nominal battery capacity and battery capacity for each variant may be slightly below the nominal battery capacity. The battery is non-removable and removing the battery may cause damage to the phone.

I did not test the battery for talk time or media time and can not tell the worst-case scenario. Battery life depends on moderate to heavy use and screen refresh rate which sucks. Screen time and video time vary on regular streaming and gaming. Smart battery use will give you better and long-lasting results.
