Huawei Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro: everything we know

There are still a few days to the presentation of Huawei's top-of-the-line phablet, but of the Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro we know everything by now

Waiting for Huawei to officially present, on September 19 in Munich, the new range of flagship smartphones Mate 30, we just have to rely on the usual leaks to understand how the future Huawei Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro will be. Anticipations that, as usual, are not lacking and that, in this case, do not concern the Lite and Porsche Design variants.

The latest rumors come from the well-known and reliable Evan Blass of EvLeaks, who showed on Twitter what would seem to be the final renderings of the two smartphones, to be used in advertising material. These are not certainties, but what is shown by Evan Blass largely confirms what has already been leaked in recent weeks. Based on these renderings we can say that the difference between the Mate 30 and the Mate 30 Pro will certainly not be just the name. On the contrary: the screen of the two devices will be completely different, as well as the front camera department and the sensors included in the notch, which is also different in the two models.

Huawei Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro: the design

The front of the Mate 30 Pro shown in the rendering lets you see a curved screen in Samsung style (but should be produced by LG) with an obvious rectangular notch, quite large. The bezels are very thin, as we could expect from a top of the range device. At the back, however, dominates the huge photo department: four sensors enclosed in a large circular central element, which looks a lot like the porthole of a washing machine. The flash is external to this element, to its left. For the rest, the body is completely smooth.

The design of the normal Mate 30, however, is very different and obviously more "cheap": no curved screen, much smaller notch (a symptom of fewer integrated sensors) and with inside two lenses of different type and size. The render doesn't show the rear, but from other leaks we know that the Mate 30's cameras will be only 3 and not 4. As for the colors, however, still Evan Blass says that they will be 4: Space Silver, Cosmic Purple, Black, Emerald Green.

Huawei Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro: technical specifications

From what has been leaked so far we can say with fair certainty that the smartphone Huawei Mate 30 Pro will mount a SoC Kirin 990, with 7 nm manufacturing process. It will have a capacious 4,500 mAh battery, four rear cameras (two 40 Mpixel, an 8 MP telephoto and a depth sensor) and will be able to be charged up to 40 Watts of power (27 Watts wirelessly). The operating system will be Android 10, with EMUI 10 user interface. The regular Mate 30 is expected to have one less camera sensor (one of the two 40 MP ones, most likely) and a slightly smaller battery: 4,200 mAh.
