Huawei took the launch event of new Huawei Nova 5i Pro to announce the start of sales of Mate 20 X 5G in China. According to the manufacturer, this is the first of many handsets to support the new 5G connection. The handset is also available in the UK starting today via Three, Sky Mobile, and Carphone Warehouse.
The Mate 20 X 5G smartphone comes to market with support for two SIM slots. Now, when it comes to price, Huawei decided to follow the same strategy adopted in other markets and launched the handset in China costing 6,199 Yuan. However, it’s cheaper than the European model, which costs 999 euros.
The Huawei Mate 20 X 5G offers a giant 7.2-inch display, Kirin 980 processor, 6GB of RAM, 128 GB of internal storage and three rear cameras. In addition, the device comes out of the box running Android 9.0 Pie under the EMUI interface.
However, the new Mate 20 X 5G hits the market with a considerable reduction in its battery capacity. Thus, the 5,000 mAh of the original Mate 20 X version is cut to 4,200 mAh. To compensate this, Huawei has made 40W fast charging available for this variant. Currently, the traditional model only supports fast 22.5W charging.
