huawei mate 20 x 5g -  - Huawei Mate 20 X 5G now available from Vodafone UKBack in May, both EE and Vodafone pulled Huawei’s phones from their 5G network launch. Both companies had planned to offer the Huawei Mate 20 X 5G as part of their 5G launch, but decided to “pause” this because of “uncertainty” regarding Google having the ability to provide future versions of its Android system to Huawei.

A knee-jerk reaction, and the 5G device soon became available on O2 and Sky Mobile networks, who have yet to launch their 5G networks.

EE quietly opened pre-orders for the Huawei Mate 20 X 5G Thursday, and Vodafone, with little fanfare, has now followed suit.

The 5G phone is available to order on 5G plans ranging from £68 per month with £29 upfront to £81 per month with £29 upfront cost.  Vodafone’s 5G plans have no limits, while you have a a choice of data limits on 5g ready plans.

The Huawei Mate 20 X 5G is essentially a 5G-enabled version of the Mate 20 X that the Chinese company launched in October.

Aside from its whopping 7.2-inch display, it’s packing Huawei’s Kirin 980 processor, a huge 4,200mAh battery and a triple camera array on the back, consisting of standard zoom, telephoto zoom and super wide angle.

Powered by the same 7nm Kirin 980 chip as its current flagships, Mate 20 X 5G uses the Balong 5000 chipset to enable the next-generation mobile connectivity. It also supports previous-gen networks – everything from 2G up to 5G – and Huawei claims switching between these networks is possible with lower latency and reduced power consumption.

It has a lower-capacity 4,200mAh battery than the 5,000mAh pack inside the regular Mate 20 X, but supports 40W SuperCharge for faster charging and has an AI-powered optimisation mode for regulating power consumption in the background.

The 5G Mate 20 X also features an advanced cooling solution with a vapour chamber and graphene heat pipes, known as SuperCool. This will help keep things cool when streaming 4K video and intensive games.

Other specifications are largely similar to that of the standard Mate 20 X, which is a larger version of the Mate 20 with a 7.2in FullView (2244×1080) IPS display and the addition of a headphone jack, but the loss of wireless charging and waterproofing. It has the same core hardware and triple-lens (40Mp + 20Mp + 8Mp) rear camera.
