In the past 24 hours, there has been a couple of leaks regarding the upcoming Huawei Mate 20 X 5G version. The standard version of this smartphone was released last year and it is the largest model in the Huawei Mate 20 series. From what we know so far, the 5G version will retain the design of the 4G version but apart from using a 5G modem, its battery will be reduced to 4200 mAh and it will use a 40W SuperCharge as compensation.
