Huawei could drop another foldable at its MWC 2020 virtual conference on February 24

Huawei is going to host a virtual press conference on February 24 from Barcelona, Spain after GSMA decided to cancel MWC 2020 as many companies dropped out of the event due to the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus) in may countries across the world.

Huawei will be streaming a pre-recorded launch session where it is expected to unveil multiple products across PC, laptop, wearables, audio and TV categories. However, according to a recent report by Gizmochina, Huawei is also expected to announce its next foldable phone during the event. This is a new foldable product by the company and we are not sure about the name of this upcoming phone, if it's really being unveiled on the said date.

Now, we think this foldable phone could be the Huawei Mate Xs that was announced back in October 2019. A significant update in the Mate Xs is said to be the presence of the Kirin 990 5G chipset, an improved hinge design and a more durable screen. 

The Mate Xs is confirmed to feature a similar design as the Mate X with the same set of Leica-branded camera array. It's worth noting though, that while the Huawei Mate X debuted in 2019, it's availability is still limited to China.

With a ban on Huawei currently in effect, it's unlikely that any phone they launch would have access to Google's suite of applications or even Play Store. As for the other products, we believe some of them could be powered by HarmonyOS.

Previously, the Mate Xs was scheduled to launch during MWC 2020 but as the event was scrapped, Huawei seems to be going ahead with the virtual launch anyway. We'll know more about the upcoming phone as we near the date of the conference on February 24.

It’s not too late to grab a fantastic Xbox One deal this weekend as prices drop once more

We've been surprised by some fantastic Xbox One deals this week, and those Xbox One S and Xbox One X bundles are sticking around for the weekend as well. We've been used to seeing these prices over Black Friday and during the seasonal sales, but a sudden price drop back to $ 149 on the All Digital Edition and $ 349 on the Xbox One X are very welcome indeed. 

That's right, those looking to take advantage of the current Game Pass roster or who simply want the cheapest Xbox One deal possible can pick up an All Digital Edition on sale for just $ 149. That low price is courtesy of the fact that this console does not have a disc drive. If you're looking to save on pre-owned physical games or to build up a case collection you'll want to check out the full Xbox One S bundle for $ 63.99 more.  

The $ 212 Xbox One S bundle comes with Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order included. Looking for the 4K upgrade? You can also bag an Xbox One X deal with the latest Star Wars title for just $ 349 as sales return to Black Friday level discounts this week. 

These Xbox One deals have been sorely missed over the last few weeks as prices have been rising back to their usual retail positions for the New Year. It's never too late to save on a brand new console, however, so these sales could have come at just the right time for a January mood booster.
