Huawei target Note niche with Mate 20 X

Rounding out their existing Pro and Prosche variants of the new Mate 20, Huawei have also announced the bumper-sized Mate 20 X.

The Mate 20 X runs on the same software, RAM, camera, storage and processor found in the regular Mate 20 but features a 7.2-inch OLED display,  a 5000mAh battery and a M-Pen stylus.

One thing this version of the Mate 20 won't have, however, is the in-display or 3D face unlock found in the Mate 20 Pro. Instead, it uses a traditional rear-mounted fingerprint sensor.

Huawei also played up the SuperCool technology built into the device. They claim that the new smartphone features the world's first vapor chamber and graphene film cooling to enable better thermal management when doing things like gaming.

In Europe, the device will retail for €899. No word on whether the device will come to Australia yet or how much it might cost if it does.

Disclosure - PC World Australia traveled to the UK as a guest of Huawei.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

This smart laptop was enjoyable to use and great to work on – creating content was super simple.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries


As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
