Huawei's upgraded Mate XS comes out at a weird time for foldables
The Daily Charge
All right, mobile Congress might be canceled but that doesn't mean the phone news is all dried up while we unveiled an update to its football mate x called the mate x s, which is a faster processor and will finally be sold outside China.
And we don't have a price tag on this thing but our own anti oil please.
It'll clock in around $2,850 a lie.
Do you think there's still excitement foldables or there's just too much controversy going around.
I think there was excitement.
I don't know if there's nearly $3,000 worth of excitement
Definitely is excitement that we've been both been using the galaxy flip
Samsung's new razor like
We've been juggling the razor the Z flip a little bit here in the office
And I'm excited to see what while he's doing because it actually looks really cool.
I was reading Andy's story.
And the idea that there's less of a crease because of the way it folds and folds on itself as opposed to folding down.
Yes,>> or completely closing like the fold.
The old radius is a lot.
It's a lot more forgiving, right?
You saw the meat.
Is it the meat ax meat?
10 What do they call it?
The meat AX.
I did see the matrix A couple of times.
It looks cool.
It folds out like you said Feels, I mean, decently starting, I don't think it's as sturdy as say the Z flip or the razor just I think partially because of the way it's designed.
That's an incredible statement given the fact that both of those phones are known for their durability.
Well, I mean, I think because it's a clamshell and the outer the outer part of it, it just felt more secure like this is a The foldable part is on the outside, which just psychologically makes you feel like it's more exposed and it is plastic which is prone to scratching.
So my other question is, is this thing you're paying $3,000 for this phone?
you're gonna put it into your pocket, which generally has other thing but his
If you can afford $3,000 He has to hold that phone for you with white gloves.
I guess so.
And when you need it, you summon it.
You don't like a pleb, you put it in your pocket with keys?
For what, do you own it?
You have someone carry those keys for you too.
Right, you're not driving.
