Huawei has officially launched its first 5G commercial smartphone – the HUAWEI Mate 20 X (5G). Equipped with Huawei’s powerful 5G multi-mode terminal chips, the 7nm Balong 5000 and the Kirin 980, the ground-breaking device boasts excellent 5G connectivity while retaining the ability to downshift to 4G, 3G and 2G as well as other network systems such as SA (Standalone, 5G independent network) and NSA (Non Standalone, 5G non-independent networking) making it an unparalleled 5G smartphone.
HUAWEI Mate 20 X (5G) is being positioned as the world’s first 5G smartphone that works on both SA (Standalone) and NSA (Non-Standalone) network architecture. If users purchase a phone that only supports (NSA), once the migration to (SA) takes place, phones that lack this feature will not work with (SA) 5G networks. As an example, if users with 5G smartphones that only support Non-standalone (NSA) travel to countries where there is a Standalone (SA) 5G, their smartphones will not work. China Telecom has announced that it will move to SA by 2020, meaning that only devices with SA support will work in China.
Meanwhile, with HUAWEI Mate 20 X (5G) users can rest assured as the device is able to support both Non-standalone (NSA) and Standalone (SA) 5G networks, meaning that it can work in different countries and at the different stages of the 5G networks development. It will be able to meet the communication capabilities of users and operators at different stages of hardware development. To better adapt to the evolving 5G era, the HUAWEI Mate 20 X (5G)uses an innovative dual-core chipset design, sitting the Balong 5000chip alongside the AI-powered Kirin 980. This dual-core configuration makes the HUAWEI Mate 20 X (5G) both proven and reliable.
The Balong 5000 chip – the world’s first 7nm 5G multi-mode terminal is regarded as the benchmark for 5G, providing users with Ultra-fast Downlink speeds. Enabling a variety of network synths in a single chip, the Balong 5000 not only effectively avoids latency from multi-mode data exchange, but it also improves performance and data transfer efficiency. Not only does the Balong 5000 provide superior 5G connectivity, but it also allows for backward compatibility with a wide range of network protocols, including 4G, 3G, and 2G.
Joining the Balong 5000 is the Kirin 980, Huawei’s fastest chipset yet, is the brand’s 7nm top-of-the-line SoC chip for AI-enabled smartphones. Be it for texting or idly listening to songs, the Kirin 980 chip keeps the phone running at high performance. While other smartphone manufacturers have opted for single SIM card models for their 5G devices, the HUAWEI Mate 20 X (5G) is the World’s first Dual-SIM 5G smartphone that supports Dual-SIM features (5G SIM+4G SIM)*.Thanks to its dual-card design with support for 4G and 5G Dual-SIM card use, the HUAWEI Mate 20 X (5G) makes it easier to stay connected to 5G networks while traveling or accessing roaming services.
Building upon technologies developed over several decades, the HUAWEI Mate 20 X (5G) further optimizes telecommunications algorithms to increase the efficiency of signal transmission between smartphones and communication network devices while improving smartphone energy consumption.
The new GPU Turbo 3.0 feature greatly enhances the GPU efficiency of the HUAWEI Mate 20 X (5G), enabling the phone to have a smoother and higher frame rate, lower power consumption, and longer battery life for playing games for the ultimate gaming experience. Currently, 25 internationally popular games and 60 Chinese mainstream titles are compatible with the HUAWEI Mate 20 X (5G)’s specs.
While EMUI 9.1 optimizes the system performance of the HUAWEI Mate 20 X (5G), allowing the phone to run smoothly and lag-free. Housed in the HUAWEI Mate 20 X (5G) is the 7.2-inch Ultra Large OLED Dewdrop Display. Thanks to its premium design with high screen-to-body ratio and extremely slim bezels, the HUAWEI Mate 20 X (5G) is capable of providing users with a more immersive viewing experience, be it while gaming or watching videos and movies.
The HUAWEI Mate 20 X (5G) is equipped with a powerful Matrix Camera System consisting of a triple Leica camera setup. These three cameras, the 40MP wide-angle camera, 20MP ultra-wide camera, and the 8MP telephoto camera, utilize the high-powered hardware and software on the HUAWEI Mate 20 X (5G) to deliver stunning photos and videos in any scenario, from macro to ultra-wide photography.
5G will introduce high fidelity media, game streaming, and social and productivity app functionalities, and thus a need for more power. Huawei Mate 20 X (5G) delivers exceptional battery life, AI smart power management systems, high-capacity batteries, and super-fast charging and cooling capabilities.
It houses a 4200mAh (typical value) high-density battery that powers the device’s high-performance levels. Additionally, this is supported by the 40W HUAWEI SuperCharge, a fast charging solution certified by TÜV Rheinland, an authoritative and independent international organization that provides product safety assessment and certification services. In addition, HUAWEI SuperCool, a groundbreaking cooling solution that utilizes graphene film and vapor chambers, is integrated into the HUAWEI Mate 20 X (5G), allowing for outstanding cooling performance. The device stays cool and responsive even while running graphically-intensive media and games at high settings, ensuring continuous, stable and fast performance.
HUAWEI Mate 20 X (5G) in Emerald Green will be available for pre-order at a price of AED 3699 starting July 11, 2019.
