Last month, the Mate 20 X 5G went through the review of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology and obtained the network access license. This is the first smartphone in China to obtain the 5G terminal telecom network access license. According to relevant sources, the products will be released to the market as early as August.

It is reported the Mate 20 X 5G is nearly identical to the Mate 20 X in terms of appearance, except for a “5G” logo on the back, and the new color option Emerald Jade. The Huawei Mate X Standard Edition only comes in Gem Blue and Phantom Silver shades.

In terms of configuration, the Huawei Mate X 5G Edition adopts a 7.2-inch display with a resolution of 2244×1080. It has a Kirin 980 processor, with battery capacity of 4200mAh (standard version is 5000mAh) and supports 40W fast charging.

Li Xiaolong, vice president of Huawei’s smartphone product line, pointed out that only Huawei can provide SA/NSA 5G dual-mode smartphones. This is also the only 5G mobile phone that supports dual sim cards (one supporting 5G, the other supporting 4G).

In addition, Huawei’s official Weibo account announced today that Huawei’s 5G CPE Pro has obtained China’s first 5G wireless data terminal telecommunications equipment network access license, which is the first intelligent router supporting a full 5G network in China.

According to the official introduction, Huawei’s 5G CPE Pro is powered by Huawei’s first self-developed 7nm multimode 5G chip, the Baron 5000. Its peak download rate is up to 2.3Gbps. Users can cache an ultra-clear movie in 3 seconds and enjoy the 5G wireless broadband experience, using a 5G SIM card.
