Huawei Mate 20 X 5G Hits the UK This Week Because Not Everyone's Afraid to Flog It

By Shabana Arif on at

Huawei's Mate 20 X 5G launched last month but what with all of the furore going on around the company, network operators pulled the handset from their launch lineup, but now their competitors are stepping in.

The 5G smartphone was set to be available on EE and Vodafone, but the pair announced that they would be holding off on offering the Mate 20 X 5G until the Huawei brouhaha settled down, but it has yet to reappear in either of the companies' lists of 5G devices.

But three other networks have swanned in to snap up the phone for their own 5G lineup, so if you had your eye on the handset you'll be able to find it on Three, Sky Mobile and Carphone Warehouse.

"We will always put our consumers first, regardless of the challenges we face and this announcement demonstrates the continued confidence in Huawei from customers and partners," said Anson Zhang, managing director of Huawei consumer business group UK.

"We also have a responsibility to make it clear to consumers that nothing has changed and we are confident about the future, and will always ensure our consumers enjoy the best possible experience on their Huawei devices. We are grateful to our millions of loyal consumers in the UK – and we will soon welcome millions more.”

As per the snazzy little video, the Huawei Mate 20 X 5G will be available in Emerald Green for £999 from today. You can refresh your memory on its specs right here.
