Huawei teases Mate 20X as a gaming smartphone with a cooling system

Huawei Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro prices revealed ahead of launch

The Huawei Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro, which are guaranteed to see daylight in London next week, have been leaked multiple times in a number of paint jobs already, but for the most part, we've dealt with press-friendly renders.

Huawei Mate 20 Pro has been spotted online a week ahead of its launch. There are snippets of some mobile games and the words "cooler" and "longer gaming".

It is certainly going to be an exciting launch day on October 16 and we will be providing you timely updates during the announcement. The fact that the person is holding a block of ice means the device has some sort of cooling system, as well as having a big battery with the "longer gaming" term mentioned there. We believe that just like the remaining two handsets getting unveiled, this one will be armed with a Kirin 980 SoC.

From the teaser, it is plain to see that the Mate 20X is targeted at gamers. We are not so sure.

And Huawei Mate 20 Pro sports a glass back that is also curved at the edges.

Also, if you're not a fan of such gargantuan phones with distractingly large screen cutouts, the non-Pro Huawei Mate 20 should feature a slightly smaller 6.5-inch display with a significantly narrower "waterdrop" notch. The Antutu result posted on Weibo confirms the Huawei Mate 20 comfortably crossing the 300,000 mark for overall performance (the CPU, GPU, and memory scores are also provided in the image below). Behind Huawei P20 Pro!

It's also rumored the Mate 20X will wield a massive 7.21-inch OLED display with a 2240x1080 resolution. Under the hood, the device is powered by the new Huawei Kirin 980 Octa-core SoC clocked.

The regular Mate 20 will feature a water-drop notch while the Pro version will come with the regular notch.
