Huawei Mate 20 review: One of the best phones the US is missing out on

Huawei's Mate 20 Pro might take the company's ultimate flagship title this generation, but the slightly lower-end Mate 20 is still a phone worth considering with its own strengths.

Unfortunately for most of our readers, it isn't coming to the US.

The Huawei Mate 20 X has a colossal 7.2" display with a waterdrop notch and a 5,000mAh battery

During a live-streamed event in London today, Huawei announced its new flagship series of Mate 20 phones. While we were fully expecting the Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro, the company surprised us somewhat with a "one more thing" type announcement: the Mate 20 X.
