This week, Chinese tech firm Huawei announced a new smartphone with a massive 7.2-inch edge-to-edge AMOLED display, gigantic 5000mAh battery, in-screen fingerprint scanner and one of the fastest (if not the fastest) chipsets to grace any portable device. The is the company's flagship handset for 2018 and, short of a major announcement from one of its many rivals operating in the same space, could end up being the most impressive phone of the year – in purely technical terms, at least.

"The best portable mobile gaming machine".
The Nintendo Switch is a gaming console that currently sits within its own little corner of the gaming market, with other major platforms such as Sony's PlayStation 4 and Microsoft's Xbox One offering a different - and more traditional - approach to hardware design which appeal to customers in different ways. As such, the Switch doesn't really have a direct competitor, but Chinese tech giant Huawei is hoping to change all of that.
Introducing the Huawei Mate20 X, a brand new gaming phone that was officially unveiled to the world just yesterday. The device will feature a 7.2-inch screen with a 1080p OLED display (compared to the Switch's 6.2-inch display with a native 720p resolution), and will come with a Kirin 980 processor. This processor is said to give the phone the extra space it needs to throw in a 5,000mAh battery, which Huawei says will give the phone a battery life that doubles that of the Switch.
