The latest smartphone to get fully tested by DxOMark is the Huawei Mate 20 X. This was the huge variant of the Huawei Mate 20 that came out with a jumbo 7.2-inch display. Though it doesn’t feature the same 3D face unlock hardware that was present on the Huawei Mate 20 Pro, it does have the same triple-camera hardware on the back.
The main camera is a 40MP 1/1.7-inch quad-Bayer sensor with an f/1.8 aperture lens. This sensor outputs images in 10MP. The zoom camera is an 8MP sensor with f/2.4 aperture and OIS. Finally, the ultra-wide is a 20MP camera with f/2,2 aperture. Autofocus is performed with both phase-detection and laser-assist.
The Mate 20 X was consistently accurate in the exposure of all lighting conditions and there was a great dynamic range. Colour rendering was also pleasant with nice saturation. White balance was also mostly accurate. Meanwhile, autofocus was quick and consistent in all lighting conditions. There’s a nice balance between textures and noise which is kept well under control indoors.
In low-light, DxOMark reported great performance at night, but the auto-flash mode was apparently not consistent. The times it did fire off, however, it did a good job of lighting subjects with good detail.
In zoomed shots, colours appeared a bit flat with sometimes inaccurate colours but otherwise shot great details in close and medium-range situations.
