Huawei Mate 20 X 5G launching in UK in JuneHuawei has unveiled its new 5G-ready smartphone in London, the Mate 20 X 5G. The phone is essentially a 5G-enabled version of the Mate 20 X that the Chinese company launched in October.

Aside from its whopping 7.2-inch display, it’s packing Huawei’s Kirin 980 processor, a huge 4,200mAh battery and a triple camera array on the back, consisting of standard zoom, telephoto zoom and super wide angle.

Powered by the same 7nm Kirin 980 chip as its current flagships, Mate 20 X 5G uses the Balong 5000 chipset to enable the next-generation mobile connectivity. It also supports previous-gen networks – everything from 2G up to 5G – and Huawei claims switching between these networks is possible with lower latency and reduced power consumption.

It has a lower-capacity 4,200mAh battery than the 5,000mAh pack inside the regular Mate 20 X, but supports 40W SuperCharge for faster charging and has an AI-powered optimisation mode for regulating power consumption in the background.

The 5G Mate 20 X also features an advanced cooling solution with a vapour chamber and graphene heat pipes, known as SuperCool. This will help keep things cool when streaming 4K video and intensive games.

It has the same core hardware and triple-lens (40Mp + 20Mp + 8Mp) rear camera.

The Huawei Mate 20 X 5G is priced at £999 ($1,278) and comes initially in Emerald Green only.

Huawei also used their event to confirm that their first foldable smartphone, the Mate X, will be released in the UK in the third quarter of this year – sometime between July and September.
