This year, Huawei came into limelight when they launched a triple camera system Android-powered smartphone i.e., Huawei P20 Pro. More recently, they were once again applauded when they released Huawei Mate 20 Pro with a rectangular triple camera system and under the display fingerprint scanner. In fact, MKBHD did an excellent review of Huawei Mate 20 Pro which I can’t resist from mentioning.
Huawei today announced Mate 20 X with 7.2-inch waterdrop display and 5000 mAh battery. Do you see any problem? I do. I don’t really understand how that 7.2-inch display is going to help you with your day-to-day activities. I mean, no matter how big your hands are, will you really be able to hold it in your hands and still use it with single hand all the time? Although the display is completely bezel-less and looks quite stunning with that waterdrop notch, I personally feel that I may not hold onto it for more than a few days. I completely agree that everyone has their own personal taste and some of you may still like it. If so, why do you think you’ll like this gigantic display on a phone? Let’s just call it a phablet. Yay! They are coming back.
I specifically liked this quote from AndroidPolice –
It is basically a Nexus 7 with no bezels.
What else does Huawei M20 X bring to the table?
The phone runs on Kirin 980 7nano-meter chip, Mali G76 GPU, 6 GB RAM, and 128 GB internal storage. The primary camera will have 40 megapixels lens, which will be accompanied by 8 MP telephoto lens and 20 MP ultra-wide angle lens. The phone will run on Android 9 Pie with EMUI 9.0 skin. The phone is expected to be available from October 28th in Asia and Europe. The pricing will start from 899 euro which roughly translates to $1040.
