According to TechRadar, the Chinese tech giant officially said that the Huawei Mate X will have two versions. One of them will be equipped with the Kirin 990 processor, and the other version will be equipped with the Kirin 980 processor.
Earlier, there was news that the Huawei Mate X will have a 5G version. But the source has not confirmed whether there is a 4G version as well. Although the Kirin 990 can also be used as a 4G chip, Huawei obviously hopes that the Mate X 5G can be equipped with the Kirin 990 processor. If the news is true, the model with the Kirin 980 should be the 4G version of Huawei Mate X. After all, the Mate X showed on the MWC in February this year uses the Kirin 980 processor.
