The Huawei Mate 20X is a behemoth of a smartphone which is oriented towards mobile gamers. the device boasts a bigger 7.21-inch OLED display which comes with an optional stylus.

There's support for expandable storage even if with a twist, as this is the world's first smartphone to support nano-SD cards, if that's the name we'll eventually go with.

But while Huawei have been known for premium smartphones at a mid-tier price, their latest offering can't be considered anything but a premium price as Huawei look to see if consumers will pay and shift their loyalty from traditional powerhouses like Apple and Samsung. This time it is launching its smartphone with the latest Android 9 in partnership with Google. In all honesty, the smartphone is extremely feature-rich and comes with specifications that are super advanced and futuristic. The front camera is listed at 24-megapixel, so I'm assuming selfies are important to this phone. Alongside that are the components that enable the 3D Face Unlock, 3D Live Emoji, and 3D object scanning.

In case you were wondering, the Mate 20 RS does in fact have an in-screen fingerprint sensor, just like the Mate 10 RS. Whether or not you like the notch, this trend is here to stay. The major difference between the Mate 20 and the Mate 20 Pro is the waterdrop notch found on the marginally lower-end model.

Top worldwide tech enthusiasts, as well as celebrities attended the global launch of Mate20 Pro, along with the new face of the Huawei series, Danish singer Christopher Nissen. And the company has upped its game with the Mate 20 series.
