Comes with Kirin 990 5G SoC and improved hinge design
A year after it introduced the original foldable Mate X, Huawei has now announced the Mate Xs, an updated version that will feature a Kirin 990 5G SoC, and a couple of other improvements, including a new hinge system.
Kirin 990 4G is significantly smaller
The Kirin 990 5G was finally announced by CEO Richard Yu today and it is a 10.3 billion transistor three CPU cluster SoC with an integrated 5G. Future phones, including the Mate 30 Pro 5G will use it. A Huawei executive confirmed to Fudzilla that the 4G version of the chip is not merely the same SoC with 5G bit disabled.
