After a delay to the release of Huawei’s first 5G handset, the long-awaited Mate 20 X 5G is now available to purchase from Three, Sky Mobile and Carphone Warehouse.
Based on the Mate 20 series platform launched at the end of 2018, the Mate 20 X 5G comes with a mammoth 7.2-inch display, the same triple-camera setup as the Mate 20 Pro, pen-input, the current flagship Kirin 980 chipset, and Huawei’s own Balong 5000 5G modem.
The Huawei Mate 20 X 5G will retail at £999 and be available in Emerald Green (as pictured above).
I’ve asked Huawei to confirm if this handset will work on all UK 5G networks without having to alter configuration files or flash custom ROMs (as is required on other 5G handsets currently on sale). Once I get an answer, I will update this page.
