A New Huawei Mate X With Kirin 990 May Show Up At MWC 2020
With up to 8 GB of RAM and a Kirin 980 for its brains, it also packs as much processing power as Huawei's flagships did, and it's due for a refresh next year. But while a full, next-generation product arrives, the device will also be receiving a slight refresh called the Mate Xs which features, among other things, a more up-to-date Kirin 990 processor. And this may just be the device that just went through the CCC, a Chinese regulatory agency. The listing shows a device from Huawei with model number TAH-AN00m (for reference, the Mate X's codename is Tahiti or TAH for short), and the only apparent improvement revealed in the listing seems to be improved 20V/3.25A (65W) charging. 65W charging is rumored to be coming with Huawei's upcoming Huawei P40 lineup, and it's also rumored to be one of the Mate Xs's purported features (the Mate X supports 55W charging).

Whether this will scupper a global launch entirely remains to be seen. Regardless, the Mate Xs runs Android 10, showcases beautifully innovative ways to multitask across its tablet UI, with split screen working and floating window support. This means three apps can run on-screen simultaneously. All this adds up to a true 2-in-1 smartphone and tablet, with an interface that makes the best of both, adjusting seamlessly as you open and close it. That's something we haven't seen before from the folding devices that are available to buy outside China.
Huawei Mate X smartphone was announced earlier this year at the MWC 2019 event in Barcelona, Spain. However, the phone is yet to hit the stores as it was delayed a couple of times. The latest reports suggest the handset will go on sale from November. Now, it is claimed the Huawei Mate X final version would launch at the end of this year and will have different specifications than initially showcased. The handset is said to come with Kirin 990 chipset and pack triple rear cameras, a similar setup as the Huawei P30 series. The new optics use RYYB instead of RGB. The TENAA listing suggests the smartphone will now weigh 300 grams instead of 287 grams when it was announced.
In a briefing with journalists, he said that a Mate X in the spec originally shown (using the Kirin 980 and separate 5G modem) would be sold but there would also be a second version that will have the brand-new Kirin 990 processor, a chip which Huawei officially launched at IFA 2019.
Kirin 990 5G is a beast and raises the prospect of faster adoption of 5G in many parts of the world. 2020 is without a doubt the real year of 5G with that technology fully entering the high-end, premium, and perhaps the high-mid-range markets.

In terms of software, the Mate Xs runs Android 10 with EMUI 10.0.1 on top. There are no Google services to be seen here due to last years trade ban. Huawei did show off their alternative to the Google Play Store, the App Gallery. It remains to be seen how Huawei will fare getting developers on board.
