It's now possible to unlock the bootloader of the Mate 20 X, even the international version.

Prerequisites:
1. FunkyHuawei credit or pass.
2. Windows PC
3. Bootloader code from unlockhuawei.com

Steps:
1. Use the 'new HiSuite method' to install from the Misc section, version EVR-L29 9.0.0.172
(These instructions: https://pastebin.com/raw/Db5ZSyqu )
2. Now you can enable "OEM Unlock" from the developer options. (It wasn't possible without step 1)
3. Reboot to fastboot mode, use fastboot command:
fastboot oem unlock CODE
(replace CODE with your code)

Now the bootloader is unlocked! Time for development!

If you have credits you can use those for unlock code?

No, unlock code is separate from credits.

No. It's device/imei specific.

I don't think a C432 EVR-L29 exists. If it does, yes, it should work.
