Early Huawei Mate 30 Pro leak lists bigger display, extra camera, more
The Huawei Mate 20 Pro
The Huawei P30 and P30 Pro are still pretty new, but today early information about the Huawei Mate 30 Pro which is due to arrive later this year has leaked out. Do, however, take the details with a heavy dose of skepticism as they could be wrong.
Citing industry sources, the report (viaGSMArena) suggests the Huawei Mate 30 Pro will ditch the 6.4-inch display found on last year’s Mate 20 Pro in favor of a larger 6.71-inch OLED panel manufactured by BOE. Once again, this will integrate an in-screen fingerprint scanner, although it’s unclear if it’ll be upgraded from an optical sensor to an ultrasonic one, and will presumably maintain the curved edges.
Accompanying the updated front panel looks set to be a refreshed rear. Like the current-gen Mate 20 flagships, the Mate 30 Pro is expected to feature a large square-shaped camera module, but this time around there should be four individual sensors which match the functionalities of those seen on the Huawei P30 Pro – primary, super-wide-angle, telephoto, and Time-of-Flight. Also, the LED flash is now expected to sit in the middle of the setup.
Regarding the internal aspect of the flagship, the next-gen Kirin 985 paired with a custom 5G modem seems extremely likely at this point. Nevertheless, a cheaper 4G LTE model is rumored to be on the way too. The upgraded chip will apparently be joined by a 4,200mAh battery and support for Huawei’s new 55W SuperCharge technology.
As the summer months near, more concrete information should start surfacing about the Huawei Mate 30 lineup ahead of its expected launch in October. In the meantime, as mentioned above, please do take this information with a big pinch of salt.
