A cheaper option for the full-fat Leica lens triple-camera than the Mate 20 Pro is the Mate 20 X, but not in the UK it seems
It’s just been confirmed to us by Huawei UK that they have no plans to bring the Huawei Mate 20 X to the UK. The Mate 20 X, with its 7.2 inch IPS LCD screen is being pitched as a phone/tablet (phablet), like a super-sized Galaxy Note, but with an optional pressure-sensitive pen/stylus rather than a standard one.
It also has the same triple-camera module as the range-topping Mate 20 Pro, complete with the 20 megapixel ultra-wide camera and the 40 megapixel main camera. Instead, the entry-level Mate 20 has only 16 and 12 megapixel resolution sensors, respectively. Another attraction of the X is its 5000 mAh battery, 25% larger in capacity than the Mate 20 and 19% greater than the Mate 20 Pro.
Huawei was also promoting the Mate 20 X as a gaming phone, complete with grip/controller accessories.
At last week’s global launch a price, in Euros, was quoted for the Mate 20 X, of €899 compared to €1049 for the Mate 20 Pro and €849 for a Mate 20 with the same RAM and flash storage (6GB/128GB). We have been unable to confirm if the Mate 20 X will be available elsewhere in Europe.
