A massive display needs a massive battery!

Huawei Mate 20 X Huawei Mate 20 X

After announcing two variants in the Mate 20 series, Huawei surprised the attendees with a third Mate — the Mate 20 X. It is the company’s biggest phablet device with a massive 7.2-inch display.

The Mate 20 X upscales the base Mate 20 but doesn’t push it to the Pro standard. The handset’s major key feature in the Mate 20 series is its 7.2-inch OLED display at a 2,244 x 1,080 resolution, powered by a massive 5,000mAh battery. That’s what keeps the X distinct from the Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro. The notch on the Mate 20 X is an inherit from the base model, while the camera at the back is same as the Pro’s.

Huawei is really pushing this up in real estate for the screen, as the Mate 20 X is likely the only bezel-less smartphone with such a massive display in the market now. That said, it does give a competition to Samsung’s existing Note 9 (and perhaps the upcoming Note 10 or X). It will definitely be worth a watch to see how the massive Mate 20 X performs in sales upon launch later this month.

Huawei’s offering Kirin 980 processor (7nm), 6GB of RAM, up to 128GB of onboard storage, rear fingerprint scanner, and no 3D face scanner, alongside the AI capabilities that power the Mate 20 line-up.

The Mate 20 X will run EMUI 9.0 atop Android 9.0 Pie. It will go on sale starting October 26 for €899, with pre-orders open now.

OnePlus 6T Thunder Purple

OnePlus recently announced that it will be launching the OnePlus 6T in Nepal on November 11. The company launched the handset just last month in New York.

Yes, OnePlus is sticking to its ridiculous six-month update cycle that outdates the only flagship every six months.

The OnePlus 6T features a 6.41-inch AMOLED display with a teardrop notch, and a chin, of course, on the front. It packs a 10nm Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chipset coupled with either 6GB or 8GB of RAM, depending upon your preference.

OnePlus has added an in-display fingerprint scanner to the handset, and removed the traditional 3.5mm headphone jack. The battery included in slightly larger in capacity than what we’ve seen on the OnePlus 6. Rest follows what’s on the OnePlus 6.

You can pre-order the OnePlus 6T in Nepal beginning November 11, and get the handset delivered in the next few days if not weeks. OnePlus Nepal is offering the handset at a discounted price of 69,999 NPR for the 6GB RAM and 128GB storage variant, in partnership with Alibaba’s Daraz to celebrate its Double 11 sales day.

That said, the regular OnePlus 6T pricing will likely be a little over what Daraz is offering.

We’ve reached out to OnePlus for more information, and will update this article as the story progresses.

Update: OnePlus will be selling the OnePlus 6T for 75,999 NPR in Nepal after the Daraz Double 11 sale is over. Grab the discounted price while you can.

Apple Pay in Germany

Apple is about to launch Apple Pay in Germany. Local banks have started emailing customers about Apple Pay’s launch in the country, but none have mentioned an exact launch date yet. Plus, Apple’s Germany website also states “coming soon” for the mobile payments service, leaving us without an exact date.

Apple earlier this year promised that it will launch Apple Pay in Germany before the end of this year; we can now see where it’s headed. Apple Pay made its debut in Europe when it launched in the United Kingdom in 2015, and now covers most parts of the continent. The contactless payments service could go live in Germany anytime soon.

At launch, Apple Pay will support American Express, Maestro, MasterCard, Visa, Boon, Bunq, ComDirect, Square, Edenred, Fidor Bank, Hanseatic Bank, HypoVereinsbank, N26, O2 Banking, and Vim Pay customers in Germany.

Stay tuned for more information as the story progresses.
