Battery capacities leaked for the Huawei Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro

Battery capacities leaked for the Huawei Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro
The Huawei Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro could be unveiled by Huawei on September 19th. Recently a heavily disguised Mate 30 Pro was photographed riding the subway with its circular camera module hidden by a plastic door. The 6.7-inch notched AMOLED screen features a 'waterfall display' with the edges dropping down at an 88-degree angle making it appear as though there are no side bezels when viewing the screen straight-on. The phone will be powered by the homegrown Kirin 990 SoC, a 7nm chipset designed by Huawei's HiSilicon unit and manufactured by foundry TSMC.

While it isn't clear whether Huawei will install Android or its own HarmonyOS on the Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro, we might have an idea about the capacities of the batteries that will be used on both models. Photographs posted on Weibo allegedly show the 4500mAh battery that will power the Mate 30 Pro and the 4200mAh battery expected to keep the lights shining on the non-Pro Mate 30 model. Last year's Mate 20 Pro and the company's current premium handset, the P30 Pro, both carry a 4200mAh battery inside.

Huawei Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro could support 25W wireless charging and 55 W wired charging


The 7% bump for the Mate 30 Pro battery and the 5% hike for the one in the Mate 30 are certainly needed these days thanks to the reverse wireless charging feature. This allows the back of a phone to be used as a wireless charging pad and charge up earbuds and even compatible phones like the Apple iPhone 8 and up. The host battery "shares" some of its power with the device lying on its back which is why having this additional battery capacity will surely be welcome by owners of the Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro. Samsung offers this feature, calling it Wireless PowerShare, with the handsets that make up the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy Note 10 series. Speaking of wireless charging, there is speculation that the Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro will support 25W wireless charging, which would be the fastest such speed found on a smartphone. And both models are said to support 55W wired charging.


Had Huawei not found itself on the U.S. Commerce Department's Entity List in May, the company most likely would have been riding the successful launch of the Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro to top Samsung and become the world's largest smartphone manufacturer. Huawei delivered 206 million handsets last year placing it third behind Samsung and Apple. During the first quarter, its global shipments increased 50.3% to 59 million units moving it past Apple into second place. For the second quarter, Huawei shipped another 59 million phones giving it a total of 118 million delivered during the first half of this year. While many firms would be thrilled with this, Huawei traditionally reports a sequential gain in shipments from the first quarter to the second quarter; the fact that phone deliveries were flat over this period indicates that the U.S. supply chain ban is having a detrimental effect on Huawei's smartphone business.

Originally, Huawei planned to release the Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro after the September launch of the foldable Mate X. But with the latter delayed to as long as November, it seems more likely that the foldable won't hit the market until after the Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro have already done so. And of course, don't expect to find any of these Huawei phones offered for sale in the states. Earlier this year, New York's B&H Photo sold the Latin American variants of the P30 and P30 Pro equipped with the electronic retailer's own warranty. The phones were compatible with GSM networks like AT&T and T-Mobile. But once Huawei was placed on the Entity List, B&H quickly took down the listings and stopped selling the phones.

Clearly he meant Note 10+. Nitpicking much?

Perhaps he meant even a Note 9 though that one didn't come in a plus version. The more important matters are... does it have a 3.5mm jack? IR-blaster, micro/nano/pico/whatever-SD-card slot, buttons? And above all who'll get it. I suspect the US and maybe the UK won't, as the leading morons there are even worse than the leading morons everywhere else. Oh well, I'll play Doom VFR some more, I guess. []-)

If you don't care about stylus, then yes, mate series are better. Otherwise, note series are the best if stylus is needed.

@Youngquenga41 Comparing note 9 to mate 20 pro: Better battery life, cameras, facial recognition, faster charging, faster updates, better performance. Mate 30 pro will be better than note 10+.

Huawei is nowhere near the experience of Note series.

Compare these battery's to upcoming Pixel 4, google needs to learn bigger battery no matter what power saving software you have.

In the mean time, Google will release a 2800 mAh "flagship" :)
