With the US ban a hot topic and everyone wondering how it will manage to give users access to Google apps and services, Huawei is plowing full steam ahead and launching its brand new Mate 30 series of phones on September 19th. Thanks to a series of leaks from perhaps the best-known leaker of them all, Evan Blass, we now have a range of renders showing off the regular Mate 30 as well as the Lite, Pro, and Porsche Design variants.
Mate 30 Lite
Let’s take a look at the Mate 30 Lite first with its square camera housing that takes inspiration from last year’s Mate 20 Pro. It’s surprisingly similar in looks and specifications to the Nova 5i Pro, powered by the mid-range Kirin 810 and featuring a punch-hole display along with a fingerprint reader on the rear panel.
The Mate 30, on the other hand, sports a display with a narrow notch that appears to house fewer face unlock sensors than seen on the Pro model. It’s also possible that the Mate 30 will sport a lower-resolution (FHD+) display. As with most Huawei handsets, the Mate 30 is said to feature dual-SIM functionality.
Mate 30 Pro
The higher-specced Mate 30 Pro boasts a waterfall display with a wider notch that likely includes additional face unlock sensors. Recent leaks point to there being a pair of 40MP cameras, an 8MP sensor, and the Time-oF-Flight sensor that has become so popular in 2019.
Mate 30 RS Porsche Design
Heading up the range is the Mate 30 RS Porsche Design variant that boasts a leather and glass design along with a rear camera housing that is perhaps more like the Mate 20 in terms of its rectangular layout.
With the exception of the Mate 30 Lite, the Mate 30 series will feature Huawei’s brand new Kirin 990 processor under the hood along with 6GB/8GB or even 12GB of RAM and built-in storage ranging from 128GB to 1TB, depending on the model.
With the September 19th launch in Munich only a few days away, do you think Huawei have any surprises in store?
