Huawei announces the Mate 20 X with 7.2-inch display and M Pen stylus

After months of leaks (most of which turned out accurate), Huawei unveiled on Tuesday four Huawei Mate 20 smartphones: the Mate 20, Mate 20 Pro, Mate 20 RS with Porsche Design and, the big surprise, the Mate 20 X.

It has a triple camera setup at its rear comprising of 40MP, 20MP and 8MP sensors.

Now the main highlight of the event, Huawei Mate 20 Pro. However, we are yet to know the exact launch date and pricing only after an official confirmation from the company. In confirmation of one of the rumors, Huawei has introduced the world's first nano memory card, said to be 45 percent smaller than the microSD card. Also, the Mate 20 is expected to bear a starting price tag of Euro 750 (roughly Rs. 63,700), while the Mate 20 Pro might start at Euro 850 (about Rs. 72,200).

Huawei Mate 20 Pro features 6.39-inch curved OLED display that supports 1440 x 3120 pixels of resolution and offers 19.5:9 aspect ratio. It comes with pre installed Android 9.0 Pie operating system along with EMUI 9.0 running on top. It is powered by Huawei's latest chipset, the 7nm HiSilicon Kirin 980 SoC, with dual AI processor. The cameras also include LED flashlights and Super HDR mode.

The previously reported rumors of the Mate 20's notch have been revealed to be true. On the rear of the device sits a fingerprint sensor. Not only can the Mate 20 Pro be topped off using a wireless charger, but it can also serve as a wireless charger for other devices. It has an IP53 rating. This display has a high color saturation. Huawei said that it's finally solved its previous gripes with Qi, which is that it's so slow, so you'll get 15W wireless charging from the Mate 20 Pro. It's also rated to IP68 water and dust resistant. Here's hoping it can match the might of its sibling, the Huawei P20 Pro.

The "standard" Mate 20 has the following three lower-spec Leica cameras in the back array: 12 MP (Wide Angle Lens, f/1.8 aperture) + 16 MP (Ultra Wide Angle Lens, f/2.2 aperture) + 8 MP (Telephoto, f/2.4 aperture), supports autofocus, supports AIS.

However, while riding on Melbourne's famous tram system, 12-year-old Charlie Wolf asked them about baby names, reports CNN . Meghan's mother, Doria Ragland, is also thrilled and "looks forward to welcoming her first grandchild", the palace added.

The Mate20 phones also feature 3D facial recognition so a user can unlock their phone with their face, similar to Face ID on the iPhone XS and XS Max.

One of the cool evolution in Huawei's Master AI 2.0 image processing with the Mate 20 Pro is the ability to segment a photo into sections and treat each one differently.

The Huawei Mate 20 X is a phablet that was launched with the Mate 20 series.

The latter features a Dewdrop Display that's 6.53-inch in diagonal. You'll need it: Huawei designed a sophisticated cooling system that uses graphene film and a vapor chamber to keep the device from stuttering during lengthy gaming sessions. This smartphone comes in two variants - 6GB RAM + 128GB ROM and 8GB RAM + 256GB ROM.

The giant 7.2-inch screen of the Mate 20 X (128GB of storage, 6GB RAM) will cost you 899 euros when it arrives on 26 October.
