Huawei Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro in Rumors – Price, Specs and Release Date

Huawei Mate 20 Pro Display Issues

In midst where Samsung has launched its Note 10, Apple and Google are preparing for respective iPhone 11 and Pixel 4 flagships, Huawei’s Mate 30 lineup is also near to be official. Probably the most anticipated of all of them, the Mate 30 is a huge deal for Huawei to succeed among all, considering the US-China trade ban and restrictions on the tech giant Huawei.

Huawei is set to launch its Mate 30 flagship lineup soon before the year-end. Rumour-mill has a lot to suggest – most importantly the software, whether it will run Android OS or company’s on Harmony OS? Only the company would tell about it when it reveals other things about the phone on the launch date.

Right now, Huawei’s very last flagship we have seen is the P30 Pro which is one of the best camera phones. Now here is everything that we have gathered so far about the upcoming Mate 30, Mate 30 Pro and Mate 30 Lite.

Release Date

Considering previous footprints of the company, Mate series usually released in October. Like the Mate 10 lineup was launched on October 16, 2017, Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro were also revealed on the same date in 2018.

With Mate 30 lineup, this may change and the company may announce its flagship earlier. Following the rumors and then the news from Huawei’s developer Conference suggest that the company may reveal the lineup on September 19.

The company is also set to reveal its new chipset Kirin 990 on September 9th during the IFA 2019. Mate 30 Lite may reportedly be revealed even earlier. Another leaked product roadmap hints that the 5G models of Mate 30 flagships would come later in December 2019.

Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro Rumored Features

The premium design of Mate 30 is expected to follow the existing design language but with minor elemental changes. The square camera module on the back is reportedly having a circular design now. Some reports suggested that it would carry five cameras on the back. Quad HD+ display with a under-display fingerprint sensor and larger battery.

The Design

Mate 30 Pro, for sure, will carry Leica-branded camera lenses but in a circular multi-camera module. Mate 20 Pro had a square camera module instead and it was praised well. Not sure how the circular module will impress but according to leaked images, it still looks better than the iPhone 11 leaks.

Mate 30 Pro Circular Camera Module

The phone will be made up with metal and glass and is expected to feature IP68 rating with water and dust resistance.

The Display

The two — Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro will reportedly feature Full HD+ and Quad HD+ displays. Mate 30 Pro is rumored to have 90Hz display refresh rate. The infamous wide-notch is reportedly staying on top of display.

This is again similar pattern that we have seen with last year’s Mate 20 lineup. Reports have suggested that there could be a difference in sizing. Previously Mate 20 Pro had a smaller size than the Mate 20. However the Mate 30 Pro is now reported to have a 6.7-inch display — 0.4″ larger than last years Mate 20 Pro, and 0.1″ larger than the Mate 20.

We don’t know yet if the Mate 30 will have a respective size increment or it will be smaller than the Mate 30 Pro this year.

The fingerprint sensor is also about to follow the predecessors — rear-mounted fingerprint sensor with Mate 30 and an under-display fingerprint sensor on Mate 30 Pro. P30 and P30 Pro, earlier this year, also followed the Mate 20 lineup for the feature.

The Hardware

Huawei has already planned a launch event for its flagship Kirin 990 chipset during IFA 2019. That’s what the company has done previously as well. Likewise, both the Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro are likely to feature the newest Kirin 990 processor.

Base models of both the siblings will carry 128GB of internal storage at least, however the Mate 30 Pro is supposed to have more RAM than mate 30. The latter will reportedly feature 8GB of RAM which is not a match to 12GB RAM in competitors’ flagships.

If talk about batteries, the Mate 30 is rumored to have 4200 mAh battery capacity, while the 30 Pro may feature 4500 mAh battery.

The Camera

The sure thing about Mate 30 and 30 Pro’s cameras are the Leica-branding. No number suggestions have been told with grip so no good megapixels we have known so far. But Mate 30 Pro will sure have an upper hand with better camera hardware and features compared to the standard Mate 30 — just like previously we have seen with Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro or P30 or P30 Pro.

P30 Pro camera features like 5x optical zoom and 50x digital zoom are likely to follow in Mate 30 Pro. The quad-camera setup of P30 Pro is most likely to remain the same with a standard, ultra wide-angle, a telephoto and a 3D ToF camera — sure with enhancement in Mate 30 Pro. Likewise, the Mate 30 may also equip with P30’s camera system.

There have also been reports earlier about a penta-camera system (five cameras instead of four) in Mate 30 Pro. These reports didn’t last longer but they still exist in rumored features.

The Software

Software is the biggest factor among rumors as this is the most important factor which may be affected with recent clash between US-China trade ban. Considering Huawei’s recent statements that the company will keep using Android for its smartphone, it’s most likely that Mate 30 lineup will be using Android OS. Still not sure if it can hold on with Google’s licensed Android OS with Google’s suite of apps or simply the AOSP (open source version of Android) with no Google apps pre-built.

Some reports have also added sugar for your consideration that the company may offer the Mate 30 Lite with its own HarmonyOS — may be for trial or something?
