Huawei Mate 20 X officially announced
Huawei took a surprise announcement at its London event where it has unveiled a new variant of the Mate 20 series called the Mate 20 X.
This one features bigger and beefier hardware — a larger display, a larger battery capacity, stereophonic speakers for more spatial sound, and a new Huawei M-Pen for writing notes and memos on the go. This is shaping up to be Huawei’s answer to Samsung’s Note series of smartphones by offering a stylus accompaniment to the Mate 20 X, though the M-Pen has to be bought separately to fully utilize the note-taking features.
There’s also one for the gamers — the Mate 20 X is also geared for gaming with a separately-sold gaming accessory with D-buttons and is likened to that of the Nintendo Switch. Huawei also infused the phone with its SuperCool technology – the company’s moniker for a vapor chamber cooling with a graphene film heat spreading — to keep the phone cool while used intensively for games or intense tasks.
