Huawei’s first 5G smartphone is getting ready to launch in select markets. The Huawei Mate 20 X 5G is now available in the UAE. Meanwhile, the device is currently available for preorder from Amazon’s Italian website, which will be released on July 22. After that, the phone will go on sale in China on July 26.
When it launches, the device will officially be the first 5G offering by the Chinese manufacturer. Originally, Huawei planned that the foldable Mate X will be its first 5G device. Unfortunately, Huawei encountered last-minute delays with the production of the device. As a result, the device was pushed to a September launch.
The Huawei Mate 20 X 5G looks a lot like the Mate 20 X. It also carries similar specs such as a 7.2-inch AMOLED screen, three rear-facing camera configuration which includes a 40-megapixel main sensor, 8-megapixel secondary camera with telephoto lens, and a 20-megapixel ultra-wide camera sensor; a 24-megapixel is also available in front.
Inside is where things differ from the Mate 20 X. Although both devices run the same 7-nanometer Kirin 980 processor, the Mate 20 X 5G comes with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. It also comes with a Balong 5000 modem and 4,200mAh battery. To set the 5G model apart, Huawei has made this device available in a jade or emerald green color. It also comes with a 5G branding on the back.
The Huawei Mate 20 X 5G is currently available in UAE for $959. In Italy, preoders are priced at $1,238.
