Huawei has been famous for its duo flagship models strategy for a long time. In 2019, Huawei published its P30 and P30 Pro series, which were the flagship models of Huawei currently. However, in Huawei’s strategy, the P series is focusing on photography technology, but the Mate series is the real comprehensive flagship models. On May 2, 2019, Huawei began to sell the Mate 20 X in Swiss, which is Huawei’s first time to officially sell its 5G smartphone model. Sunrise, a Swiss telecom carrier, offers the 5G network service for Swiss customers. The Huawei Mate 20 X is equipped with a 7.2-inch screen and 3 Leica-certified cameras. Meanwhile, the Huawei Mate 20 X offers two kinds of colors for the back part, blue and silver.
In terms of hardware performance, Huawei Mate 20 X is equipped with Haisi Qilin 980, which is the flagship processor of Huawei. With the internal duo NPU, Qilin 980’s AI computing ability is strengthened to a large degree. Meanwhile, the brand-new updating of the GPU Turbo 2.0 could better deal with the photography and lower the energy consumption. The Super Cool heat dissipation technology could make it more stable for the processor to operate. In addition, the Huawei Mate 20 X has different kinds of memory combos, and its largest memory is up to 8GB + 256GB. In conclusion, the Huawei Mate 20 X is a model with a high price-performance ratio of Huawei Mate series.
Though Huawei’s P series is mainly focused on photography, the Mate 20 X also has a strong photography ability. There’s a 24-megapixel Ai camera lens in the front screen of Mate 20 X. On the back of the Mate 20 X, there are 3 Leica-certified cameras: the main camera is a 40-megapixel camera, and another two are 20-megapixel and 8-megapixel cameras. The combination of the 3 cameras provides a strong photography managing function and guarantees the high-quality of the pictures. What’s more, the Huawei Mate 20 X is equipped with a 4200mAh high-capacity battery and supports the Huawei 40W super-fast charging solutions, which guarantee a long-time endurance of the smartphone. The M-pen hand-writing pen is specifically designed for office employees, which makes it convenient for them to use the Mate 20 X to work.
During the Mate 20 X’s 5G network testing in Swiss, its peak speed reached 1.5Gbps, which means that a full-HD film with 1080P resolution ratio could be downloaded with several seconds. In terms of 5G, the Huawei Mate 20 X uses Balong 5000 5G chip, which is solely designed by Huawei and is the world’s first 5G chip. In Feb 2019, Huawei published Mate X, which is a foldable screen phone with 5G chips and is regarded as the Huawei’s first 5G smartphone. However, it is reported that the retail price of Mate X would be more than EUR 2000. On the other hand, the Mate 20 X may have a lower price.
