A few days ago, Huawei Mate Xs 2 has been launched for the Chinese market. Today, the foldable smartphone arrives in Europe for 1999 euros. When unfolded, its screen measures 7.8 inches diagonally and has a resolution of 2480 x 2200 pixels. When folded, the panel measures 6.5 inches and measures 2480 x 1176 pixels.
With this Amoled screen, the image is repeated at 120 Hz and the touch sampling rate is 240 Hz. The Mate Xs 2 comes with a new hinge called the Falcon-Wing and weighs in at 255 grams, which is pleasantly light for a foldable device. Under the hood is the Snapdragon 888, and as you might expect, you have to give up 5G and Google services. Onboard 8 GB RAM and 512 GB internal storage, the latter expandable up to 256 GB via NM card.
The photo module consists of three lenses:
- 50MP (f/1.8) True-Chroma main lens
- 13 MP ultra-wide-angle lens (f/2.2)
- 8 MP telephoto lens (f/2.2)

We already talked about the Huawei Watch GT 3 Pro when it launched in China, so you probably all know it. This smartwatch comes in two sizes: 46mm titanium and 43mm white ceramic. Each of them has different shoulder straps.
This well-crafted watch has a 1.42-inch or 1.32-inch AMOLED screen, protected by sapphire crystal, with a display resolution of 466 x 466 pixels. The titanium version is said to have up to 14 days of battery life and the ceramic version has up to 7 days of battery life.
Functionally, there are not many new features. The watch is again controlled by the crown in the upper right corner. New on board are ECG analysis and arteriosclerosis risk screening. However, this feature is still blocked during the certification process and will not be available when it launches in France.
Golf and freediving are also joined by a hundred sport modes. The rich golf courses in the Chinese version as maps are not yet available in the local version.
Improved health is also covered, but more on that later. The watches are already available to order, starting at €369.99. Here is an overview of all models:

Finally, let’s take a look at the latest wearable in the Huawei catalog: the Huawei Band 7! We already knew about it since it launched in China in early May. Compared with the Huawei Band 6, there is no special change in function or design. The fitness tracker again relies on a 1.47-inch Amoled screen with a resolution of 194 x 368 pixels.
The connected bracelet weighs only 16 grams and also integrates Huawei’s TruSeen sensor, capable of measuring your heart rate. Everything you know from its predecessor is also available here, so menstrual cycles are also logged, you can monitor your sleep and more. The sleep tracker has been improved to identify different types of sleep disorders.
The device offers 96 sports modes, including swimming (4 ATM) and cycling. According to Huawei, the battery should last for 14 or 10 days when using the always-on display. The Huawei Band 7 is priced at 59.99 euros, and the fitness band can be purchased from June 16th in the following four colors: Wilderness Green, Flame Red, Graphite Black and Nebula Pink!

Finally, let’s briefly talk about health apps. Huawei Health has been revamped and will now improve your health and fitness experience better than ever. We’ve already mentioned over 100 sport modes. But when you play sports, you can also benefit from coaching and analysis. In addition, Health now focuses more on diet with the Stay Fit program, which includes a personalized workout plan and nutritional analysis.
As Huawei envisions, the app integrates with your Huawei device like a personal trainer in your pocket. There are calorie management and different intermittent fasting plans. The list of app features is even longer, but there’s a catch.
Certain services, such as breathing practice tools, are not available in the free version of the app. Huawei did launch Health+, an advanced version of expanded health services. For Health+, a subscription is required and you have to pay €7.99 per month or €59.99 per year.
