Huawei will launch the Mate 20 X 5G smartphone in the U.K. on July 26. This is important for several reasons. First, it’s Huawei’s debut 5G device to launch in the U.K., and second it shows that the bottleneck that recently stopped the phone from launching on several networks has been broken.
The Mate 20 X
Huawei’s first commercially available
The design is close to the Mate 20 Pro, right down to the square camera lens array on the back of the phone, where the same specification camera lenses from the Mate 20 Pro live. This means a 40-megapixel main lens, a second 20-megapixel wide-angle lens, and an 8-megapixel telephoto lens. It’s capable of 5x hybrid shots, has an effective night mode, and plenty of artificial intelligence too.
A 4,200mAh battery provides the energy, with Huawei’s 40W SuperCharge charging system taking it to 70% capacity in an impressive 30 minutes. Put a 7.2-inch screen on any phone, and the result is going to be a large handset, but the Mate 20 X
