The Chinese telecom operator Unicorn leaked the Mate 20 X 5G official render and retail packaging. Fortunately, Huawei also confirmed that the company is indeed working on the Mate 20 X 5G variant but the exact release date is still in the dark.
Last year in Q4 Huawei launched four variants of Mate 20 lineup including Mate 20, Mate 20 Lite, Mate 20 Pro and Mate 20 X. As the name suggests the Mate 20 X was the special amongst all with a gigantic display of 7.2-inches and 5,000mAh battery.
The leaked renders suggest the Mate 20 X 5G variant will retain the design language like the standard model, the only difference will be support for 5G connectivity. The Mate 20 X 5G is rumored to have a 7.2-inches OLED display with a dewdrop notch at the top of the display. Under the hood, the Kirin 980 chipset will be powering the phone. The rear side will have triple Leica certified cameras. For 5G connectivity, the device will feature the company's own Balong 5000 modem.
The only difference in the hardware specs will be smaller 4,200mAh battery cell instead of 5,000mAh. It will be interesting how the 5G connectivity and giant display will have an effect the battery life. There are fair chances the company could ship the Mate 20 X 5G with 40W SuperCharge. We can expect more details regarding the Mate 20 X 5G in the coming days. Stay tuned, we will keep you updated.
