Huawei’s China-exclusive handset, Mate 20X, announced last month has now managed to rake in 1 million reservations on Huawei’s own Vmall within a short period. For the uninitiated, Vmall is the Chinese company-owned online store where they exclusively sell products from their brands.
Obviously, we’re talking about the reservations here, and this figure need not reflect the actual potential sales. Speaking of which, the device won’t go on sale until 16th of August and will be available only through Vmall initially. Other stores are expected to start selling the device soon after, though.
It’s good to know that a lot of Chinese consumers are interested in the device, but we’ll have to wait a few weeks following the initial sale to get an idea of how many of them convert to buyers. But, with this sort of a massive fanbase, it’s probably safe to assume that Huawei Mate 20 X is going to be a huge hit in the home country.
Moving on to the specs, the Mate 20 X 5G phone comes with a large (a bit too large, perhaps?) 7.2-inch screen with a display resolution of 1080 x 2244 pixels. It is powered by Kirin 980 octa-core processor, along with 8GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage. There’s a shared microSD card slot as well that you can use to expand storage up to 256 gigs.
The camera department is handled by a 24MP single snapper on the front and triple camera setup on the rear includes 40MP (wide), 8MP (telephoto), and 20MP (ultrawide) sensors. The main highlight of the handset is obviously the addition of 5G connectivity (NSA and SA). As for the software side of things, it runs EMUI 9.1 that is based on Android 9.0 Pie.
