The saga of the launch of Huawei’s Mate 20 X (5G) on EE in the UK is now complete. The operator initially announced this would be one of the devices it would release upon the start of its 5G service, but then backtracked once the Chinese company was put on the US Government’s Entity List. Then a few days ago, after that whole drama got somewhat clarified, it put the handset up for pre-order.
And today it’s finally available and in stock. You can only get it in Emerald Green, with 256GB of storage. EE is offering the Mate 20 X (5G) with eight different plans, ranging from £54 per month to £74 per month. You’ll need to pay between £10 and £50 for the phone upfront, depending on which plan you pick.
The Huawei Mate 20 X (5G) has a 7.2-inch 1080×2244 18.7:9 OLED touchscreen, the HiSilicon Kirin 980 chipset, 8GB of RAM, a 40 MP (wide) + 8 MP (telephoto) + 20 MP (ultrawide) triple rear camera setup, a 24 MP selfie shooter, and a 4,200 mAh battery. It runs Android 9 Pie underneath Huawei’s EMUI 9.1.
