7.2-Inch Phablet Huawei Mate 20 X Unveiled

Huawei have really stretched out their largest smartphone phablet yet, as we saw when they unveiled the 7.2-inch Huawei Mate 20 X today. In a statement, Huawei said that the 6GB RAM + 128GB storage version of Huawei Mate 20 X will be sold for €899 starting October 26.

With a price like that, it's in the category of higher priced smartphones, but if we look at the specs, you get a lot more than just a 7.2-inch screen.

Huawei Mate 20 X has a OLED display with 2244 x 1080 resolution, is powered by Huawei's Kirin 980 processor, runs Android 9.0 with EMUI 9.0, features some very impressive triple rear camera with 40MP normal angle, 20MP wide angle, and 8MP zoom angle with a 24MP front camera, optional 4096 pressure level sensitive pen, a5000 mAh battery capacity, has GPS, AGPS, Glonass, and BeiDou, a USB Type-C port, and it's IP68 water and dust resistant.

But above all it's a 7.2-inch smartphone, which is pretty huge. So that makes the Huawei Mate 20 X 8.15mm thick, while weighing 232 gram.

Not bad for a tablet, but on the heavier side for a phablet of course, though it will still fit in most jacket pockets.

Huawei also unveiled 3 others smaller smartphones today, all hitting the market soon.
