July 7th, 2019 – Dubai, UAE: The 5G era has finally reached consumers, as Huawei has officially launchedits first 5Gcommercial smartphone – the HUAWEI Mate 20 X (5G). Equipped with Huawei’s powerful 5G multi-mode terminal chips, the 7nm Balong 5000 and the Kirin 980,the ground-breaking device boasts excellent 5G connectivity while retaining the ability todownshift to 4G, 3G and 2G as well as other network systems such as SA (Standalone, 5G independent network) and NSA (Non Standalone, 5G non-independent networking) making it an unparalleled 5G smartphone.
World’s first 5G smartphone to support Non-standalone (NSA) and Standalone (SA) 5G networks*:
Currently,theglobal5Gindustryisrapidlyexpanding intothecommercialphase.Telecomoperators invariouscountries and regions have adopted twomainstreamnetworkingmethods, Non-standalone (NSA) and Standalone (SA), to buildlocal5Gnetworks according to the developmentoflocal5G.
The first wave of networks of 5G networks will be classed as Non-Standalone (NSA), which is to say the 5G networks will be supported by existing 4G infrastructure.However moving forward there will be a switch to the 5G Standalone (SA) network which is the ultimate true 5G solution. The advantage of Standalone (SA) is simplification and improved efficiency, the eventual migration from 5G NSA to SA by operators should be invisible to the user.
HUAWEI Mate20X (5G) is the world’s first 5G smartphone* that works on both SA (Standalone) and NSA (Non-Standalone) network architecture. If users purchase a phone that only supports(NSA), once the migration to (SA) takes place,phones that lack this feature will not work with (SA) 5G networks. As an example if users with 5G smartphones that only support Non-standalone (NSA) travel to countries where there is a Standalone (SA) 5G, their smartphones will not work.China Telecom has announced that it will move to SA by 2020, meaning that only devices with SA support will work in China.
Meanwhile withHUAWEIMate20X(5G) users can rest assured as the device is able to support both Non-standalone (NSA) and Standalone (SA) 5G networks, meaning that it can work in different countries and at the different stages of the 5G networks development.It is be able tomeet the communicationcapabilities of usersandoperators atdifferentstages ofhardwaredevelopment.

World’s first Dual-SIM 5G smartphone (5G SIM+4G SIM)*:
While other smartphone manufacturers have opted for single SIMcard models for their 5G devices, the HUAWEI Mate 20 X (5G) is the World’s first Dual-SIM 5G smartphone that supports Dual-SIM features (5G SIM+4G SIM)*.Thanks to its dual-card design with support for 4G and 5G Dual-SIM card use, the HUAWEI Mate 20 X (5G) makes it easier to stay connected to 5G networks while traveling or accessing roaming services.
Bigger, faster, safer
Building upon technologies developed over several decades, the HUAWEI Mate 20 X (5G) further optimizes telecommunications algorithms to increase the efficiency of signal transmission between smartphones and communication network devices while improving smartphone energy consumption.
The new GPU Turbo 3.0 feature greatly enhances the GPU efficiency of the HUAWEI Mate 20 X (5G), enabling the phone to have a smoother and higher frame rate, lower power consumption, and a longer battery life for playing games for the ultimate gaming experience. Currently, 25 internationally popular games and 60 Chinese mainstream titles are compatible with the HUAWEI Mate 20 X (5G)’s specs.
While EMUI 9.1 optimizes the system performance of the HUAWEI Mate 20 X (5G), allowing the phone to run smoothly and lag-free.
Ultra-Large Screen Display for Stellar Viewing Experience
Housed in the HUAWEI Mate 20 X (5G) is the 7.2-inch Ultra Large OLED Dewdrop Display. Thanks to its premium design with high screen-to-body ratio and extremely slim bezels, the HUAWEI Mate 20 X (5G) is capable of providing users with a more immersive viewing experience, be it while gaming or watching videos and movies.
The Future of photography housed in the Matrix Camera System
The HUAWEI Mate 20 X (5G) is equipped with a powerful Matrix Camera System consisting of a triple Leica camerasetup. These three cameras, the 40MP wide angle camera, 20MP ultra-wide camera and the 8MP telephoto camera, utilizes the high-powered hardware and software on the HUAWEI Mate 20 X (5G) to deliver stunning photos and videos in any scenario, from macro to ultra-wide photography.
New energy consumption systems for a new era
5G will introduce high fidelity media,game streaming, and social and productivity app functionalities, and thus a need for more power.HuaweiMate20X(5G)delivers exceptional battery life,AIsmartpowermanagement systems,high-capacitybatteries, and super-fastcharging andcooling capabilities.It houses a 4200mAh (typical value) high-density battery that powers the device’s high performance levels. Additionally, this is supported by the 40W HUAWEISuperCharge, a fast charging solution certified by TÜV Rheinland, an authoritative and independent international organization that provides product safety assessment and certification services.In addition, HUAWEI SuperCool, a groundbreaking cooling solution that utilizes graphene film and vapor chambers, is integrated into the HUAWEI Mate 20 X (5G), allowing for an outstanding cooling performance. The device stays cool and responsive even while running graphically-intensive media and games at high settings, ensuring continuous, stable and fast performance.
