Not to be confused with the foldable Mate X, the Huawei Mate 20 X is the largest variant of the Huawei Mate series that was announced alongside the Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro at a London launch event. With its 7.2-inch display and 5,000 mAh battery, it caters to a niche market of folks who need a huge device.
Not long after finding out about what changes the Mate 20 X 5G could face, an image of the phone's retail packaging surfaced on Twitter and was posted by Slashleaks contributor, @Sudhanshu1414. The image was perhaps reposted from Chinese social media site Weibo and shows a retail box for the Huawei Mate 20 X that also includes a couple of mentions of 5G connectivity.

Another report from Wednesday details a few changes that this variant of the Mate 20 X could face. It would have a smaller battery but support for quicker Super Charging.
Huawei Mate 20 Pro, Mate 20 X, and Mate 20
The foldable Huawei Mate X 5G is set to go on sale sometime in the second half of the year so we might expect the Mate 20 X 5G to come out around the same time, maybe before the Mate X.
What do you think of these changes? Would you swap your current smartphone for a 5G version of it with a smaller battery?
