The latest trend in smartphones is targeting the mobile gaming market. Huawei has jumped into the fray with the Mate 20 X which features a 7.2-inch OLED display, 5000mAh battery, and a new Graphene Film and Vapor Chamber Cooling System.
While the Mate 20 Pro was officially revealed after recent leaks, the Mate 20 X came as a bit of a surprise to most.

In addition to the large display and vapor chamber cooling system, the new device includes a 40MP triple-lens rear camera, the new Huawei M-Pen, is powered by the Kirin 980 SoC, and is IP53 water and dust-resistant. The 7.2-inch display has an 18.7:9 aspect ratio, sports a 2244×1080 resolution, DCD-P3 HDR, and a small notch for an 87.83% screen to body ratio. Alongside the Kirin 980 SoC, the Mate X touts 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage.
An optional gaming accessory adds a thumbstick and D-pad for more gaming control. Huawei even claims that while the Nintendo Switch gets just over 3 hours on a single charge, the Mate 20 X gets over 6 1/2 hours while gaming.
The smartphone will come in two colours: Midnight Blue and Phantom Silver. The device is expected to go on sale on October 26th with a retail price of €900.
