Huawei teases Mate 20X gaming phone; to launch alongside Mate 20 & Mate 20 Pro
In actual fact, the third smartphone set to be announced alongside the Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro will be called the Mate 20X. This confirmation was attached to yet another teaser video which hinted at a rather large battery, and the presence of a new heatpipe that should help avoid any throttling when playing high-tier games, all of which point towards this offering being a dedicated gaming phone.
Obviously, this move is rather unexpected. So, at this moment in time, there aren’t many details about the upcoming offering. However, after some digging around, information appears to be pointing towards a ginormous 7.21-inch OLED display complete with a resolution of 2240 x 1080p. Internally, the smartphone will presumably come equipped with the Kirin 980. And, going by the storage configurations that were previously associated with the rumored Porsche Design phone, the Mate 20X should launch with either 4GB, 6GB, or 8GB of RAM, and a variety of internal storage options ranging from 128GB to 512GB.
Consumers can expect the Huawei Mate 20X to go official on October 16. Here, Huawei will also take the wraps off of the regular Mate 20 and the slightly more premium Pro model. Similarly, the Huawei Watch GT and the Freebuds 2 Pro are set to go official too.
