Last week, Huawei took the wrap off their first-ever 5G smartphone – Huawei Mate 20 X 5G. The device is currently available for pre-registrations across major online retailers including Vmall and JD.com, and will go on sale starting August 16th.
Although the device comes with a staggering price tag of 6,199 Yuan (US$900) for its 8GB+256GB model, but it has already collectively garnered more than 300,000 registrations so far. This number is expected to soar even higher as we get closer to its debut sale in the middle of the month.
Although specs-wise, the Mate 20 X 5G differ only in terms of its RAM and internal storage space, but its 5G capability alone is enough to greatly improve the user experience with the smartphone. Not only are you able to download files or other online media faster, you also get to enjoy improved frame rates when gaming as well. This makes it an all rounded smartphone for both entertainment and productivity.
