Huawei has realized the potential that smartphones have in the video game market and has not hesitated to join this industry with its latest handset, the Huawei Mate 20 X which, according to the Chinese manufacturer, can compete with Nintendo Switch.
In the presentation Huawei held a few days ago, the company revealed its new smartphone, the Huawei Mate 20 X, the most performant model of the newly launched Huawei Mate 20 series. And, as Huawei officials stated during the conference, they have not been satisfied with comparing their new handset with other major companies in the smartphones industry, such as Samsung or Apple, so the went even further, comparing the new Huawei Mate 20 X with Nintendo Switch.
While Huawei Mate 20 X has some edge over the Nintendo Switch, the latter boasts a more extensive catalog of video games with some exclusive titles.
Huawei Mate 20 X vs. Nintendo Switch – Which is better?
Huawei’s statements are clear! The new Huawei Mate 20 X is a “better handset” than Nintendo Switch. With a 7.2-inch touchscreen display, at 1080p resolution, and a battery of autonomy of about 7 hours the new smartphone seems more performant than Nintendo Switch which boasts a 6.2-inch LCD with a 720p LCD resolution, and an accumulator with the autonomy of 3 hours.
Also, Huawei also presented new images of a “perfectly coupled” peripheral that can be used as a gamepad with Huawei Mate 20 X.
However, despite all the features that Huawei showed in the newly launched images, the company’s representatives forgot to mention the difference between the two devices regarding the prices. The Huawei Mate 20 X will be more expansive than the Nintendo Switch console. Also, let’s not forget that these devices are running on distinct platforms and Nintendo boasts a broader catalog of games with some titles which are exclusive for the Japanese console.
