The Huawei Mate 20x 5G, Huawei’s debut 5g phone is set to launch to select market this July. Although the phone is currently available for preorder on Amazon in Italy, and will be available in the UAE and China on July 12th and July 26th respectively. This development comes dispite the uncertainty around Huawei manufacturing of Andriod devices in the future.
The Huawei Mate 20 X 5G is vsimilar to the existing Mate 20 X externally, with the same 7.2-inch screen, and trio of rear cameras. However, internally its components have been upgraded slightly. The battery has been increased from 4,200mAh to 5,000mAh, the RAM increased from 6GB to 8GB, and storage has been boosted from 128GB to 256GB. This is to handle the demanding 5G Balong 5000 modem.
Huawei is still on USA’s Entity List, resulting in the suspension of its andriod license by Google and the uncertainty of releasing 5g smartphones in the UK and other countries. Huawei was dropped from 5G launches of EE and Vodaphone
For now, US officials have said that Huawei will remain on the Entity List, but that it will issue licenses and allow US companies to trade with Huawei “where there is no threat to US national security.”
