Kirin 9000S, 16 GB RAM, and Powerful Battery: Introducing Huawei Mate X5
The Huawei Mate X5, the direct successor of the Huawei Mate X3, comes with several significant improvements under the hood while maintaining its almost unchanged premium bendable phone design.
The Mate X5 features the same bendable 7.85-inch LTPO OLED main screen with 2,496×2,224 pixels and a smaller, narrower 6.4-inch external LTPO OLED screen with 2,504×1,080 pixels and Kunlun glass as a protective layer. The Huawei Mate X5 is available in five colors, including the four colors from the Mate X3 and the new phantom purple, which is exclusive to this model.
Huawei has kept the same camera system, which consists of a 50 MP main camera with f/1.8 aperture, a 13 MP wide-angle camera with f/2.2 aperture, and a 12 MP periscope telephoto camera with 5x optical zoom and f/3.4 aperture.
The key change is the use of the Huawei Kirin 9000S chipset, which was previously seen in the Mate 60 series. This chipset is manufactured using SMIC’s 7 nm process and offers 16 GB of RAM and up to 1 TB of storage space.
