Huawei isn’t backing down the brand keeps proving that there is more in its Arsenal with the consistency it has been providing with its Mate series.
The device arrives just months after the release of other Mate devices and it has proven to be worth the wait.
As against its earlier closure in the Middle Eastern Asian market, the Mate 20 X has now launched in a few European markets and while the chances are that the P30 is already around the corner, the Mate 20 X has niche of its own.
This looks like Huawei took a wide leap with this particular device here are its specs:
- Body: dual-glass with metal frame; IP53-rated for dust and splash resistance

While the device looks a lot attractive on the surface a downside for me is the fact that the device isn’t waterproof.
