Huawei has plans for releasing two 5G capable smartphones this year which will be the Mate X and Mate 20 X 5G. While we know a lot of details about the first one, the opposite happens to be true for the second. There have been a couple of leaks suggesting a few crucial specs and now, a new Huawei Mate 20 X 5G hands-on video has surfaced online.
The hands-on video has been shared by a YouTube channel named Zing Gadget. The video shows the Mate 20 X 5G from all the angles and also compares its looks to the standard Mate 20 X smartphone. In terms of appearance, there does not seem to be any significant difference except for the 5G branding on the back panel. If it was not for that 5G logo, both phones look exactly identical.
Even the internal specifications will also remain the same for the most part. It means there is the same 7.2-inch OLED display, HiSilicon Kirin 980 processor, and camera setup. The major difference will be 5G connectivity and battery capacity. The 5G variant has a 4,200mAh battery (40W fast charging support) which is relatively smaller than the 4G model's 5,000mAh battery. It will also be featuring the Balong 5000 5G modem for obvious reasons which is available in the Mate X as well.
Other Huawei Mate 20 X 5G details including pricing and availability are still a mystery. We will keep you updated as any further details will become public.
