In an era of leaks and constant rumours about new devices, Huawei managed to do something not many other manufacturers have managed – it released a product no-one anticipated. The Huawei Mate 20 X is the Chinese smartphone maker’s latest phablet – a 7.2-inch portable computing powerhouse that gives those looking for a single device to breach the gap between their smartphone and their tablet a new option. Here’s everything you need to know.
Local Availability And Pricing
There’s no official word on local pricing and availability yet. The Huawei Mate 20 X will launch in Europe at the end of November for €899. After currency conversion, GST and a bit of “Australia tax” we can expect it retail here for around $1800. Which makes it significantly cheaper than an iPhone XS Max.
