Huawei P30 name casually confirmed; let the rumor games begin

Huawei P30 name casually confirmed; let the rumor games begin
Both Samsung’s Galaxy S10 and Apple’s 2019 iPhone generation have been in the news for several months now, possibly inciting the jealousy of Huawei Consumer Business Group CEO Richard Yu, who recently decided to randomly name-drop his company’s next-gen flagship mobile device.
No, not the Mate 20 “series”, which is already oft-leaked, thoroughly detailed, and officially confirmed for a glamorous October 16 announcement in London. Instead, we’re talking about Huawei’s main high-end smartphone after that one.

This will be called... drumroll, please... the Huawei P30, which is obviously unsurprising seeing as how it’s set to follow in the footsteps of the P20 duo unveiled earlier this year. The P20 and P20 Pro came after the P10 and P10 Plus, which in turn followed the P9 and P9 Plus, so we have every reason to expect the new naming convention to stick.

Interestingly, Richard Yu teased the Mate 20 as “even better” than the P20 Pro on the heels of last week’s glitzy Kirin 980 SoC introduction at IFA Berlin, while the P30 is supposed to be “even better” than that next year.

That’s quite an ambitious objective given all the groundbreaking features rumored to come with the Mate 20 Pro next month. Should we expect the Huawei P30 (Pro) to sport five rear-facing cameras? Six? Ten? Or is Yu simply trying to build early buzz by making big, empty promises? 

Either way, we declare open season on Huawei P30 gossip, and we’re curious to see how Mate 20 sales numbers might be impacted by this bold statement regarding a phone to be released just a few months later.

Main smartphone after that one? So which one is there main smartphone? All of these names and leaks of different devices with similar specs that overlap aren't helping things. Then there's still the stigmata of Huawei of having inferior devices with poor components. Nexus 6P anyone? I really want to like what they are bringing out because on paper, those smartphones sound fantastic.

Their main series is the P series and the Mate series is their flagship phablet two flagships a year like many other companies. The P series usually gets further refined features of the Mate series as well as it's own and the the Mate series usually gets Huawei's newest flagship SoC and new features that may or may not come to the P series. Both are excellent.

I think Huawei has moved way past having inferior devices. I have the P9 and Mate 9 and love them both. I'll be in China for early November and hope the Mate 20 Pro is out so that I can get it. The quality of the Huawei phones are much better than my Samsung Galaxy S8+. That phone doesn't want to charge right, and has always had issues with the camera. It's just not as good as my old P9. Really looking forward to getting a new one.
