Huawei is expected to unveil the successor to its foldable smartphone Mate X — the Mate Xs — at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2020 and now a new report has claimed that the device will be cheaper than the Mate X.

The Mate Xs is said to come with an improved hinge design and a stronger display. The mobile phone manufacturer has made many adjustments in the design of the Xs compared to its predecessor, news portal GSMArena reported on Thursday.


The Mate X, which is only for sale in China, sells for 16,999 yuan or about $2,400, which makes it more expensive than Samsung’s Galaxy Fold

It is also reported that the Mate XS will be smaller than the Mate X in its overall footprint, but the display size is said to remain the same.

The Mate Xs will come with a number of other improvements, according to Huawei Consumer Group CEO Richard Yu.

According to Yu, the Mate Xs will have an improved hinge mechanism along with a more resistant screen.

The device is expected to be powered by the upcoming Kirin 1,000 processor and will most likely be unveiled at IFA 2020.

Doris Lessing who won a Nobel Prize in Literature

London (CNN)- At five o'clock in the morning, the esteemed 86-year-old astrophysicist Jim Peebles was woken suddenly by the telephone ringing.

"In previous experience, the only phone calls at that time of night are bad news," he said. This one was great news. "The opening sentence from the caller was: 'The Nobel committee has voted to award you the Nobel Prize in Physics. Do you accept?'" Peebles recalled. The wording threw him. Who wouldn't accept a Nobel Prize? "You know the Bob Dylan fiasco?" he said during a phone interview with CNN. "That might have put the wind up them."The "fiasco" Peebles mentions refers to the 2016 Nobel Prize in Literature, which was controversially given to an utterly unimpressed Dylan.Aside from being ever-presents on college campuses in the 1960s, little connects Peebles, an expert in theoretical cosmology, with Dylan. But one of the starkest contrasts might lie in their reactions to winning a Nobel -- and the songwriter is far from the only laureate whose crowning turned out to be an awkward affair.

The five committees are notoriously secretive, fiercely shielding their choices from the outside world -- including the laureates themselves, who are told of their victories just minutes before they are announced to the public.

Sindoor is traditionally powdered turmeric and lime, sometimes red saffron, or red sandalwood. It is also called vermilion, or Kumkum.
