Over the last few months, HUAWEI Mate 20 X (5G) passed the entire suite of tests for 2G, 3G, 4G and 5G communication products required by the GCF, proving its advanced functionality and performance.

GCF is one of the most authoritative mobile device industry certification organizations in the world. Composed of leading mobile network operators, mobile device manufacturers, chipset suppliers, testing organizations and test equipment suppliers, it has the most comprehensive and stringent mobile device certification system in the industry. Most mobile network operators in the world require mobile devices to pass GCF certification as part of their device acceptance process.

The HUAWEI Mate 20 X (5G) smartphone has excellent 5G connectivity, through the use of a dual chipset configuration with Huawei's latest generation 5G multimode terminal chips, the 7 nm Balong 5000 and Kirin 980, which support both the SA (Standalone) and NSA (Non-Standalone) 5G networks for the world's first 5G dual-mode smartphone.

The HUAWEI Mate 20 X (5G) is also one of the world’s first 5G/4G Dual SIM Dual Standby (DSDS) smartphones, meeting the needs of dual-SIM users in the 5G era while maintaining compatibility with other various network standards such as 4G, 3G and 2G.

The HUAWEI Mate 20 X (5G) is a powerful smartphone uniquely fitted for the 5G era1 . The phone runs on Huawei's newly upgraded EMUI 9.1 operating system, and comes with a 7.2-inch2 full-screen display equipped with the Leica matrix multi-focal imaging system to delight users.

In addition, the HUAWEI Mate 20 X (5G) also has an excellent power management system. It is equipped with a 40 W SuperCharge, 4200 mAh (typical value) high-density large-capacity battery and an innovative graphene + liquid cooling system. The Huawei R&D team optimized various aspects of the phone’s power management system such as a low-power chip, low-power communication and AI smart power management to deliver improved power output results.

Prior to the official launch, Huawei worked with mobile network operators around the world for substantial testing on product performance and network integration to ensure that the HUAWEI Mate 20 X (5G) delivers the best 5G smartphone user experience.

In May, the HUAWEI Mate 20 X (5G) debuted in Switzerland and won the recognition of mobile network operators for its support of both SA and NSA 5G modes.

So far, the HUAWEI Mate 20 X (5G) has launched in several countries, with more mobile network operators in Europe, Southeast Asia, and the Middle East adding the product in their roll-out plan. With Huawei's leadership in 5G technologies and consistent and reliable product quality, the HUAWEI Mate 20 X (5G) will bring global consumers into the exciting 5G era with a new and improved smartphone experience.
