The Nintendo Switch finally gets its first “competitor”

The Nintendo Switch is a pretty unique gaming device but that doesn’t mean different tech companies aren’t trying to come up with their own answer to the console/handheld hybrid.

Chinese electronic giant Huawei today announced the Huawei Mate20 X, which they think can be a “competitor” to the Nintendo Switch.

During the press conference showing off the device, Huawei showcased the optional gamepad and compared it with a Nintendo Switch, specifically touting features that make the Mate20 X a better device.

The Huawei Mate20 X features a 7.2 inch 2244×1080 OLED display, a Kirin 980 processor, 5,000 mAh battery and vapor chamber cooling. All top of the line specs. The smartphone will also support stylus input similar to the Samsung Galaxy Note series.

The device is priced at €899 or $1450, certainly quite a bit more pricier than the Nintendo Switch which sells for $300.

What do you think of the Mate20 X and Huawei’s claims? Let us know in the comments.
