Huawei Mate 20X Is Here: Meet The 7.2-Inch Monster Gaming Phone

TODO alt text

The Huawei Mate 20X is set for October 26 in Europe and will cost around $1040 United States dollars for the 6GB RAM variant coupled with 128GB storage.

Huawei Consumer Business Group CEO Richard Yu took aim at the iPhone XS and Samsung's Galaxy Note 9 with the Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro, packing his keynote here with benchmarks pitting the flagship phones in terms of power, performance, artificial intelligence and camera technology.

Huawei Mate 20 X is priced at Euro 899 and will be available in only one variant with 8GB RAM and 128GB storage from October 26 in select European markets. The Mate 20 comes with a rear mounted fingerprint scanner, whereas the Mate 20 Pro comes with an in-display fingerprint scanner. Its 86.90% screen-to-body ratio is smaller than the Mate 20's.

A rescue crew aboard a helicopter then spotted eight bodies as it circled the area from above, police said. The previous year, 16 Sherpas were killed on Everest when an avalanche swept through the Khumbu Icefall.

While the new phones have three cameras from famed German camera maker Leica on their rear - a regular lens, a telephoto lens and a wide-angle lens - there are slight differences between the Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro. There's a 40MP Ultra-wide-angle Lecia Triple Camera in the same configuration as the Pro, complete with a big fat LED flash, too.

Also interesting is the fact that Huawei's phones are the first in the world that can be used to charge wirelessly accessories like headphones and other smartphones. So the hybrid SIM card tray can accommodate either a nanoSIM card or a Nano Memory Card apart from the primary NanoSIM. But the talking point is the support for SuperCharge 40W fast charging technology. It features a 7.2-inch OLED display with 1080 x 2,244 resolution and waterdrop notch. To add salt to the wound, Huawei specifically mentioned that it can charge an iPhone as well. It also comes with the usual sports mode, which calculates the number of calories you've burned.

The Huawei Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro will both launch with Android 9.0 Pie on board, although you'll find Huawei's EMUI 9.0 on top of it.

The James Webb Space Telescope , Hubble's powerful successor (at least, in the infrared regime), is now set to launch in 2021. The remaining three are technically enhanced and therefore expected to have significantly longer operational lives.

The Mate 20 X is essentially the Mate 20 on steroids, aimed at gamers. Inside is Huawei's new Graphene Film and Vapor Chamber Cooling System, and the whole unit is IP53 rated water and dust resistant. The Mate 20 X is priced at 899 euros (about Rs 76,500).

Earlier reports said that Huawei is expected to launch the Mate 20, Mate 20 Pro, Mate 20X, Mate 20 Porsche edition and a new smartwatch. The differences include larger internal storage variants of 256GB and 512GB and leather wrapped exterior.
