Huawei has finally unveiled the long-awaited Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro and also decided to add icing on the cake with the launching of the largest gaming phone – the Mate 20 X – and more luxury version – the Mate 20 RS Porsche Design.
Huawei Mate 20 X
Huawei Mate 20 X comes with a 7.2-inches, flat OLED panel with 1,080 x 2,244px resolution and a teardrop notch. The X model is a mix of Pro and the regular features in more ways than one.
Huawei is also aiming at Samsung’s Note flagships with the introduction of the M-Pen. The screen has the ability to sense up to 4,096 levels of pressure with one, however, if you love note-taking on the large-screen, you’ll have to buy the accessory separately. The annoying thing about the Pen and the Phone, is that there’s no slot for it in the phone.
Back to the gaming world. The Kirin 980 chipset is the first to use the powerful Mali-G76 GPU, which is 50% faster than a G72. Huawei’s GPU Turbo 2.0 tech promises fast, smooth game play.
And to keep that promise, the Mate 20 X features Huawei Supercool – the company’s name for a vapor chamber cooling with a graphene film heat spreader.
The X has the biggest battery in the Mate 20 family,too, with a 5,000mAh capacity.
Huawei Mate 20 X uses the more advanced triple camera of the Mate 20 Pro instead of the Mate 20’s slightly downgraded setup and it’s €150 cheaper than the Pro. This makes it the cheaper way to get the 40MP quad Bayer sensor, plus the 3x optical zoom of the 8MP telephoto camera and the 20MP ultra-wide angle camera.
The Huawei Mate 20 X will launch on October 26. The sizable gaming phone will cost €900 for its only 6/128GB version.
