CHINESE PHONE MAKER Huawei is bringing that it's bringing a duo of 5G smartphones to Blighty. Other than the reduced battery capacity of 4200mAh, the Mate 20 X 5G comes with specs similar to that of the Mate 20 X non-5G variant.

The Huawei Mate 20 X 5G will be available in the United Kingdom in June for €999 (~Rs 78,337) in an Emerald Green colour.

As the name implies, the Mate 20 X (5G) supports 5G connectivity, It will be available on networks from EE, O2, Three, and Vodafone. If you're looking for a two-handed mega-sized phone, then the Mate 20 X is a genuinely fantastic media powerhouse.

"Powered by Kirin 980 and the world's first 7nm 5G multi-mode chipset Balong 5000, the latest Huawei smartphone introduces consumers to 5G with a premium experience comprising high-speed connectivity, flagship performance, large display, reliable battery life and more", reads the press release. In the United Kingdom, the phone will start at £999 ($1278), which is way more than its price tag of CHF 997 ($987) in Switzerland. But the phone has a smaller battery (4,200 mAh vs. 5,000 mAh) and lacks the 3.5mm headphone jack the 4G version has. With the Kirin 980 powering the device, the phone can handle everything thrown at it easily. The Mate 20 X is positioned as a gaming smartphone. The 5G model also retains the original's triple camera setup consisting of a 40MP f/1.8 main sensor, 20MP ultra-wide lens and an 8MP telephoto camera.

This flagship phone includes some mighty features such as a 6.39-inch screen, huge 4,200mAh battery and a brilliant triple rear camera that can zoom, take wide-angle shots and produce clear images in nearly total darkness without a flash.
