88% screen to body ratio which is like so much to look at. The phone comes with DCI-P3 and HDR10 features. While the entire front panel is occupied by the display of the smartphone, the back panel sports all the aesthetic differences.

The Mate 20 X is basically an even more powerful version of the Mate 20 Pro.

The CPU configuration includes two Cortex A76 cores clocked at 2.6GHz, two Cortex A76 cores clocked at 1.92GHz, and four Cortex A55 cores clocked at 1.8GHz. Both models support 256GB expandable storage.

The Kirin 980 is at the helm of the Mate 20 Porsche Design. The phone is powered by the latest Kirin 980 chipset, which is based on the 7nm process along with Mali-G76 MP10 GPU. The NPU, meanwhile, is said to be 226 percent more powerful than its predecessor.

No Mate series device has, however, made it to India before and the company has not made it clear yet if the new line-up will be launched in India.

The phone runs on Google's latest Android 9.0 Pie operating system out of the box along with EMUI 9.0 UI running on top. It also helps memory optimization for smooth performance.

According to a report, during the presentation of Huawei's Mate 20 X smartphone, the company's representatives included a comparison with Nintendo Switch, ensuring that their product is better for playing.

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. For the front, there is a 24-megapixel shooter for selfies and video calling. The handset will also feature an in-display fingerprint sensor and support wireless charging. But there's also a Mate 20x which will come with an incredibly huge 7.2 inch display.

It is IP68 rated, so you can dip it in water if that's a concern for you. The phone is the first phone from the company that comes with new SuperCharge tech. This is similar to methods found on the Note 9 for cooling when the phone is being used for extended periods of gaming. Yes, there's also a Mate 20 Lite and a P20 Lite for the mid-ranger aficionados among you, in case you were wondering.

Up until now, we have heard about the fast and wireless charging concept, but reverse charging is something absolutely new. In all honesty, the smartphone is extremely feature-rich and comes with specifications that are super advanced and futuristic. In terms of connectivity, the phone supports dual 4G VoLTE and dual band Global Positioning System.

Huawei is hoping that major performance improvements to the Mate series - including on-screen fingerprint recognition, a triple-lens camera system with artificial-intelligence software, and phone-to-phone charging - will cement its position ahead of Apple. The Mate 20 features a 6.5-inch LCD display with a resolution of 2244 x 1080 pixels and has an 18:7:9 aspect ratio. A glass sandwich design with aluminum sides. Both the variants have 128 GB internal storage.

Other features include a triple-lens camera system, which features an ultra-wide lens and the ability to take detailed macro shots. The phone comes with AI features too.
