The first half of 2019 is gone. During this time, we saw some great smartphones hit the market, among them Samsung Galaxy S10, Huawei P30 Pro, OnePlus 7 Pro, and so on. In the second half of 2019, these same OEMs have more devices in store.
Samsung has already confirmed the official launch date of its next flagship phone – the Galaxy Note 10. Now, rumors of its closest competitors, the Huawei Mate 30 and Huawei Mate 30 Pro, are beginning to surface online.
A couple of screen protectors have leaked claiming to belong to the Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro. The protective films, if legit, are an early look into what Huawei’s top of the line flagships for 2019/2020 will be like.
It’s unclear why the top of the films is blurred, but it’s likely intended to hide something. Maybe a notch? Your guess is as good as ours. However, what is clear is how slim the bezels are and yes, the screen curves from edge to edge.
Not long ago, a photo alleged to be the back of the Huawei Mate 30 Pro appeared on China’s Weibo (via Slashleaks) suggesting that the camera module will be round and not square as seen on the Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro. Apparently, the camera lenses will include a 40MP main unit allied to an 8MP telephoto lens, a 20MP ultra-wide lens, and a ToF sensor.
Other rumors have also pointed to a 6.71-inch AMOLED display screen that could match the OnePlus 7 Pro refresh rate of 90Hz, a Kirin 985 processor, a 4000mAh battery, reverse wireless charging, and so on.
Given that Huawei is back in business with Google and other U.S. companies, the Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro should come preinstalled with EMUI 10 based on Android Q.
Huawei Mate 30 5G in the works too
According to a leaked Huawei product roadmap published by Hi-Tech, the Mate 30 series will get 5G variants in December 2019.
The Russian publication doesn’t talk about the standard models, which could suggest the LTE variants may still be unveiled in October, the expected date.
