If you're after a 5G-ready phone, make sure you don't overlook the Huawei Mate 20 X 5G. Based on the original Huawei Mate 20 X, this cutting-edge handset will not only let you make the most of the latest generation of mobile network technology, it'll also ensure you receive a great mobile experience thanks to its immersive 7.2-inch display, powerful dual-stereo speakers and triple-lens camera system.
Huawei Mate 20 X 5G Connectivity
The Huawei Mate 20 X 5G is Huawei's first 5G phone. Supporting 5G network connection, you'll be able to look forward to a more reliable connection, lower latency times (the time taken to open your downloaded files) and, perhaps most importantly, much faster download speeds than those you're used to receiving on 4G.
Whenever you're in an area where 5G is available, you can get connected using the Huawei Mate 20 X 5G. Thanks to the Balong 5000 5G modem and Huawei's advanced HiSilicon Kirin 980 AI chipset, you'll be able to play graphics-heavy games, use AR apps and stream-on-the-go with ease.
Huawei Mate 20 X 5G Design and Display
This handset has a huge 7.2-inch Full HD+ screen, with OLED technology and designed with an 18:7:9 ratio, providing an eimmersive cinematic experience. Thanks to the phone's powerful core, you'll never notice any lagging in the picture on the screen.
Colours appear true-to-life and vibrant, providing pin-sharp images. A great choice if you’re into mobile gaming or streaming TV on the go.
The Mate 20 X 5G has a screen-to-body ratio of 87.6%, making it virtually all screen. There's a small dewdrop-shaped notch located at the top-centre of the screen, which is virtually undetectable and houses the front-facing camera.
The back of the device is all glass, and the phone is protected by strong Corning Gorilla Glass. Between each glass panel is a sleek, refined aluminium frame, and there's a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor for secure access.
Huawei Mate 20 X 5G Camera
Huawei has a reputation for producing world-class smartphone cameras, and the Huawei Mate 20 X 5G is no exception. On this device you'll find a triple-lens camera system on the rear, made up of a 40MP wide-angle RGB camera, 8MP telephoto lens and a 20MP Ultra Wide Angle lens designed in collaboration with photography experts Leica.
The telephoto lens offers a 3x optical zoom so you can take close-up shots with that desirable bokeh effect, and optical image stabilisation to ensure your photos are always in focus. The Ultra Wide Angle lens is ideal for landscape shots too, or group selfies with friends.
There's also a dual-tone LED flash to keep images illuminated naturally in darker conditions and Huawei's AI image stabilisation (AIS) which makes snapping in low light particularly easy. One the front, hidden inside the small notch, is a 24MP selfie camera. Whether you love taking photos for Instagram or prefer to video call, this device has you covered.
Huawei Mate 20 X 5G Power
With such a cutting-edge camera and 5G capabilities, the Huawei Mate 20 X 5G has a powerful core running behind the scenes. Alongside the advanced HiSilicon Kirin 980 chipset we've previously mentioned, there's also a resilient octa-core CPU, 8GB RAM and 256GB internal storage to make the most of.
Android Pie (Android's latest operating system) will be ready and waiting on the handset as soon as you take it out of the box, as well as EMUI 9.1 - Huawei's own customised interface. Created to give you the very best mobile experience on this Huawei phone, EMUI 9.1 adds features such as Huawei Share OneHop, AR Measure and Phone Clone.
Huawei Mate 20 X 5G Battery
Running out of battery during the day won't be an issue. The 4,200 mAh battery will easily see you through the day, and when you do need to plug the device in you can enjoy fast-charging bring you back up to 100% in minutes.
