Huawei Mate 30 Pro: Leaks And What We Know So Far
The much-anticipated Huawei Mate 30 release will soon be upon us, but not without its challenges. Here’s what we know so far about the Chinese flagship device.
If there’s any Android phone worth talking about this year, it’s most certainly the Huawei Mate 30 Pro.
The Chinese tech company have been consistently pumping out stellar flagship and budget devices for years now, winning over a loyal global fanbase thanks to their high specs and low price point.
The Huawei Mate 20 Pro blew us away, the P20 Pro was just as adored for its insane camera and overall performance. Now, just as we begin to wonder if Huawei can pull off the magic once again, we find out that it might just be bigger and better than it’s predecessors in every way.
Here’s what we know about the Huawei Mate 30 Pro so far.
Huawei Mate 30 Pro release date
The Mate 30 series will apparently launch at a special event in Munich on 19/9/2019. The timing may seem odd, as just a few days before they’re holding a press conference in which they’re bringing news of the new Kirin 990 processor along with other gadgets.
Huawei Mate 30 Pro Leaks
Bear in mind these leaks aren’t official or confirmed, but they offer some intriguing insights into the possibilities of what’s to come with this flagship device.
It looks like the Huawei Mate 30 Pro will be sporting FIVE rear lenses. Four on the circular panel and a fifth sensor/lens underneath the flash.
We can expect Huawei to pull no punches with the primary lens considering the P30 had 10x optical and a whopping 50x digital zoom.
The front looks to stay loyal to the notch, moving away from the teardrop selfie camera design we’ve seen on recent Androids. This could be due to extra functionality added, such as facial recognition, flood illuminator sensor or an unknown feature we’re yet to learn about.
Upon gazing on another leak to surface on Twitter, it appears that the front facing camera may even sport a triple lens design. Selfie lovers unite.
Additional Huawei Mate30 Pro rumours
Huawei seem to be marketing the device around “going full circle”, which could be a statement directed towards the new camera tech.
Could it mean 360-degree photography? Perhaps it’s a hint towards another feature – we can only speculate.
One thing we do know however, is that the Huawei Mate30 Pro will launch without Google’s native apps. This is a result of Donald Trump placing restrictions on Huawei’s access to U.S tech.
We can only hope things are resolved before the release date in September.
According to Forbes, yet another warning comes Trumps way, this time from the Chief Legal Officer at Microsoft stating that the restrictions on Huawei’s U.S supply chain is unfair and un-American.
One thing is certain, September will be a massive month for Huawei as it enters a new era of handheld devices devoid of U.S tech. We could be looking at a nationwide technology split and potentially threaten the U.S tech giants that are dominating the industry right now.
