Huawei has already made a surprising and abrupt return to a first-gen design in its technically fifth-gen foldable phablet, the upcoming Mate Xs 2. Now, a display-industry leaker purports to spill its pricing ahead of its launch, which frankly seems counter-intuitive given the specs also just allegedly spilled with respect to the new phablet.

According to some renders now linked to the Huawei Mate Xs 2, the upcoming device will launch with a build very similar to its predecessor, a 'grip' to one end that also integrates rear cameras included. However, the newer model is also depicted as upgrading to a punch-hole selfie camera, positioned in such a way that the device could become most like a conventional smartphone, just one with a wrap-around display, when in its unfolded mode.

Then again, the post including these images has been subsequently rescinded by the leaker WHYLAB, thus casting doubt on the prospect of the new device making its debut with this design. However, another tipster's claims as to some specs associated with the Mate Xs 2's specs remains up on Twitter.

Ross Young of the Display Supply Chain Consultant (DSCC) group thus persists in new assertions that the Mate Xs 2 will upgrade to a 120Hz refresh rate in 2022. Then again, its singular flexible display apparently has LTPS technology, rather than the LTPO that is all the rage at present.

Despite this, Huawei is now tipped to ask no less than US$2,500 for its upcoming foldable device - much more than even Vivo charges for its new and supercharged X Fold. Regardless of these new leaks, the Mate Xs 2 is indeed officially slated to launch with the same basic form-factor as its 2020 forebear later in April 2022.
