Huawei Mate 20 X takes Pro out a new gaming door

TODO alt text

Huawei Consumer Business Group CEO Richard Yu took aim at the iPhone XS and Samsung's Galaxy Note 9 with the Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro, packing his keynote here with benchmarks pitting the flagship phones in terms of power, performance, artificial intelligence and camera technology.

Another new AI-powered camera feature is HiVision, which allows for real-time object recognition of important landmarks across 15 countries and cities like London and Paris by aiming the camera at the landmark. For example, Huawei has adopted curved edges design for the Mate 20 Pro but not on the standard Mate 20 model. The device actually has a larger display and battery than the Nintendo Switch as well as a higher pixel resolution. The Mate 20 Pro supports 40W fast wired charging (up to 70% charge in 30 minutes) while the Mate 20 supports 22W fast wired charging, and both models support 15W fast wireless charging. It comes with support for the "world's first wireless reverse charging" technology on a smartphone, which means it can wirelessly charge. The smartphone's battery can be used to fuel up other Qi-enabled devices wirelessly. The smartphone flaunts a huge 7.2-inch AMOLED display with support for HDR10 for a more immersive visual experience. The sizable gaming phone will cost €900 for its only 6/128GB version. It's available in midnight blue and phantom silver.

The P20 Pro launched with the Kirin 970 processor that offered very capable performance, but it appears Huawei is determined to take things to the next level. It also has a vapor chamber and graphene film cooling system so that users can play on their phone longer without it heating it up.

The new premium phone line-up from the world's biggest telecom equipment maker includes four models, the Mate 20, Mate 20 Pro, Mate 20 X, with a 7.2 inch display screen, and a Porsche Design limited edition phone.

Huawei is also targeting Samsungs Note flagships with the introduction of the M-Pen.

WinFuture claimed a wireless pair of headphones will launch alongside the Mate 20 Pro that will be called the "Huawei Freebuds 2" that will come in a charging case similar to Apple's AirPods.

Huawei Mate 20 X is priced at Euro 899 and will be available in only one variant with 8GB RAM and 128GB storage from October 26 in select European markets.

The Mate 20 X is priced at €899 (Rs 76,400 approximately) for 6GB RAM with 128GB storage, and it will go on sale starting November 26. There is no word on when the smartphones will launch in India.
