Huawei’s next flagship device – Mate 30 – is expected to launch in the second half of the year. Till now, many had doubts if Huawei would be able to launch the smartphone at all considering the ongoing trade ban from the US. But recently at G20, US President announced a concession for the company in the trade ban. While the exact terms for the concession are not clear as yet, reports suggest that the Chinese smartphone brand is working to introduce its Huawei Mate 30 5G in December this year.
According to a slide that the company officials shared at a conference in Russia, Huawei Mate 30 would also be launched in a 5G variant. This will be the third 5G smartphone by Huawei after Mate X and Mate 20 X 5G.
A report in technology website GSMArena says, “Take that timeline to apply primarily to the Russian market, but it could also be a good indicator of when we can expect the entire Mate 30 family to show up in stores worldwide.”
The renders of the upcoming handset have also surfaced online a few days back. According to the leaks, the front panel of the Huawei Mate 30 Pro would sport thin bezels and come with a hole-punch design. The display of the smartphone will have a dual-lens front facing snapper embedded in it.
Reports also suggest that the smartphone would be available in Red, Black and Blue colours.
According to Chinese website IThome, the upcoming Mate 30 Pro will be powered by a Kirin 985 SoC, a HiSilicon Balong 5000 5G modem and its display will have a refresh rate of 90Hz.
The report also says that the handset will come with 5x optical zoom and 50x digital zoom support, just like Huawei’s current flagship – P30 Pro. The device is said to house a 4,200mAh battery that will have support for a 55W Super Charge fast charging feature.
Huawei Mate 30 Pro will also reportedly feature a 6.71-inch curved OLED display and it is expected to come with a QHD+ resolution.
A few months back, the company also launched its Huawei P30 Pro smartphone that comes with a quad-camera setup. The device made headlines because it comes with up to 50x digital zoom – a capability that is not present in any other smartphone till now.
It would be interesting to see how the company makes its upcoming Huawei Mate 30 Pro different from its current flagship device.
