An image of the retail box for the Huawei Mate 20X 5G phablet has been leaked online. The most recent Mate series originally consisted of the Mate 20, Mate 20 Pro, and the Mate 20X. It was announced at MWC19 that the latter device would get a 5G variant, which will apparently come with some important changes.

A photograph of the Huawei Mate 20X 5G phablet’s retail box has been shared online on Chinese social network site Weibo. The box itself doesn’t reveal much about the upcoming device, but at least it looks as fancy as you would expect from a 5G phablet that will be quite pricey.

However, regardless of the final asking price, it appears Huawei actually chose to release a 5G version of the Mate 20X to give customers a chance to enjoy the advantages of connecting to 5G networks without having to splash out on the even more expensive Mate X foldable.

The Mate 20X 5G apparently has some notable differences from the 4G variant of the phablet. The Huawei Mate 20X, which scored very highly in our recent review of it, comes with a 5000 mAh battery and includes a 22.5 W quick charger. According to a report out of China, the 5G phablet will have a smaller 4200 mAh battery but will come with a 40 W fast charger.

It has been claimed that the inclusion of the more-powerful charger will help the Huawei Mate 20X 5G reach up to 70% of its battery capacity with just 30 minutes of charging time. Other specifications are likely to be the same as the original Huawei Mate 20X: fast HiSilicon Kirin 980 chip, 6 GB RAM, and of course that huge 7.2-inch AMOLED screen.
