Hardware and performance

Moreover, this smartphone also offers an Infrared sensor which you can use to control synced Home Appliances. So, this device can function as a smartphone, a tablet and a universal remote.

On the hardware side, Mate X has an 8 GB RAM and a massive 512 GB of internal memory with a further option of adding a nano memory card. You can store all your favourite movies and tv shows to watch offline!

The camera is nothing less than a treat for all the photographers out there. Leica Optics designed all three lenses; 40 Mega Pixel wide-angled, 16 Megapixel ultra-wide angled lens and the 12 Megapixel telephoto lens that gives quality zoom to pictures.

Apart from that, you’re also getting a Time-of-Flight (TOF) camera that is designed for 3D rendering and modelling.  The focal aperture ranges from 1.8 to 2.4, allowing users to make the most out of daylight as well as night time shooting.  You’re not going to find any selfie cameras on the Mate X, but you’ll be glad to know that you can get a 40 MP selfie using the main cameras.
