Huawei's new European trademark could make an apt name for the Mate Xs' successor
Huawei has applied to the EUIPO for the words "Mate V" as a trademark. It is listed as a Category-9 term, suggesting that it is a name that could be applied to a smartphone or smartphone-like device in the near future. Accordingly, it might be best suited to a next-gen foldable.
The OEM's first-gen flexible phablet launched under the Mate umbrella and with a single-letter variant name, whereas its refresh kept this motif going with the Xs moniker. Therefore, it is reasonable to suspect the V may turn out functioning something like those devices.
Huawei has filed its new trademarking application on July 3, 2020, and has done the same with the official IP offices of Canada, Peru, Brazil and Thailand in 2019. Therefore, should the Mate V launch soon, it may be able to expect upgrades such as a increased (perhaps even 120 hertz (Hz)) refresh rate in its folding screen, a new Kirin processor and 66-watt (W) charging.
