The Huawei’s event also had an extra moment, as it unveiled the largest gaming phone in history – the Huawei Mate 20 X. The Mate 20 RS Porsche Design version also took the stage to bring the usual high-priced flair. Let me show you some of the features of the Huawei Mate 20 X and its full specifications.
Huawei Mate 20 X Features
The Huawei Mate 20 X came with a huge 7.2 inch screen, which makes us hesitate to call it a phone. The display is a flat OLED panel with 1080 x 2244 pixel resolution and a teardrop notch. The Mate 20 X is a mixture of Pro and non-Pro features in more ways than one.
Huawei is also trying to follow Samsung’s Note flagships, as t introduces the M-Pen. The screen can sense up to 4,096 levels of pressure with one, but if large-screen note-taking appeals to you, you will have to buy the accessory separately. Worse yet there is no slot for it in the phone.
Back t the gaming features of the Huawei Mate 20 X, the Kirin 980 chipset is the first to use the powerful Mali-G76 GPU, which is 50% faster than a G72. Huawei’s GPU Turbo 2.0 tech promises fast, smooth game play. keeping to the promise, the Mate 20 X features Huawei Supercool – the company’s name for a vapour chamber cooling with a graphene film heat spreader.
If the large screen sounds enticing for multimedia use, the Dolby Atmos stereo speakers seal the deal. The Huawei Mate 20 X has the biggest battery in the Mate 20 family, too, with a 5,000mAh capacity.
Huawei Mate 20 X uses the more advanced triple camera of the Mate 20 Pro instead of the Mate 20’s slightly downgraded setup and it’s €150 cheaper than the Pro. This makes it the cheaper way to get the 40MP quad Bayer sensor, plus the 3x optical zoom of the 8MP telephoto camera and the 20MP ultra-wide angle camera.
