At the end of the event in which Huawei presented the new Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro, the company has carried out a kind of “One more thing …” and has taken another mobile sleeve: the Mate 20 X, a huge smartphone that is aimed at gamers. Huawei has opted to do something different with all the terminals of the Mate 20 series, and they have changed completely compared to their predecessors. In this case, the Huawei Mate 20 X has a tiny notch in the shape of a drop that just takes space off the screen, and that helps it take advantage of 82% of the front.
The Huawei Mate 20 X grows in size compared to its brothers to 7.2 inches
The Huawei Mate 20 X differs from its brothers by being aimed at a gamer audience, which has led the Chinese company to decide to manufacture it in a larger body, and with a screen that promises to make us enjoy an outstanding multimedia experience.
The first thing you should know is that the terminal panel is 7.2 inches, AMOLED technology and QHD + resolution (1440 x 3120 pixels), on the other hand, it is compatible with HDR10, which improves the image quality by adding more dynamic range of light and color when we see content in this format on platforms such as Netflix or YouTube.
Technical specifications: refrigeration with graphene and steam chamber
Like its brothers, this Huawei Mate 20 X has a processor with the new Kirin 980, manufactured in 7nm and, according to the company, offers 20% more performance level than its predecessor, as well as energy efficiency 40% higher than the same.
Its graphics processing unit, on the other hand, is the Mali-G76, whose performance is 46% higher than that of its predecessor and its energy efficiency is superior by 178%. In addition, Huawei has decided to use a solution with Artificial Intelligence in order to increase the performance of this GPU, which promises to give us a tremendous experience with absolutely any game we test. In addition, its 6GB of RAM will ensure that you can continue to enjoy great performance, although there is some open game.
On the other hand, the Huawei Mate 20 X stands out for having a cooling system that includes graphene and a steam chamber so that the terminal does not get too hot when subjected to long periods of activity. And this, in addition to being important at the comfort level, is also important when we refer to the longevity of the terminal, since the cooling performance affects the battery’s useful life, contributing to less wear over time.
To make matters worse, this terminal is compatible with a new stylus of the company, dubbed Huawei M-Pen, and with which you can take advantage of the 4096 points of pressure with which the Huawei Mate 20 X has.
Unfortunately, this does not come integrated into the body of the terminal, nor in the box itself, since it is an accessory that the company sells separately, and, therefore, you will have to assess if you can really take advantage of this Huawei M-Pen on the 7.2-inch screen of the Huawei Mate 20 X.
Camera section: the same camera as his brothers for a spectacular performance
The photo section of the Huawei Mate 20 X is practically the same as that of the Mate 20 Pro, and that means that we are going to find a new design, with a square shape and that the company compares with a car’s headlight, and it houses three sensors. 40MP, 20MP, and 8MP. While, on the other hand, the front camera remains at a resolution of 8MP.
Here, Huawei has also given an opportunity to Artificial Intelligence, and we can find certain functions such as AI Composition, predictive approach AI 4D, HDR AI, and a new mode called AI Cinema that will use this technology from the Chinese company to help us perform better pictures and videos.
We will have to test it thoroughly, but the truth is that Huawei is doing a very good job in terms of the photographic section of its range caps, and these new Huawei Mate 20 seems to follow this dynamic.
Battery: Huawei is betting everything on autonomy
The Huawei Mate 20 has traditionally been the highest-end smartphones with the highest battery capacity on the market, and while its competitors hovered around 3300mAh, the flagship of Huawei was betting on 4000mAh. With this terminal, the firm has followed this same philosophy but has taken a step forward, introducing a huge battery of 5000mAh to compensate for the increase of the screen to 7.2 inches, with which, of course, we will be able to arrive at the end of the day.
In addition, Huawei SuperCharge – the firm’s fast charging technology – will allow Huawei Mate 20 X to be charged 75% in half an hour, or 25% in just 10 minutes of charging. Of course, you will not have to worry about the autonomy of the terminal.
The new Huawei Mate 20 X will be available for purchase from next October 26, and its prices, as you can see, are quite conservative, and the base version of the terminal does not exceed $1150, unlike the new Huawei Mate 20 Pro.
