Huawei Mate 30 and Huawei Mate 30 Pro: launch and news

The next phone of the Huawei Mate series will probably be called Huawei Mate 30, and it is more than certain that it will also arrive alongside a Pro model. If we rely on the company's previous releases, these devices can be revealed during the second half of 2019. However, there is no official information in this regard, since Huawei is still in the midst of a strong situation with the US government. But that has not stopped a series of rumors and leaks that give us a better idea about the new devices. This is all we know so far about the next two phones of the Chinese company: the Huawei Mate 30 and Huawei Mate 30 Pro.


When will Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro arrive? After much speculation, Huawei has finally confirmed the launch of the new Mate 30 for September 19 in Munich. The Mate 20 series was launched in October 2018, so many expected the new generation to arrive more or less in that same period in autumn, but in the end Mate 30 has advanced, and the company announced it on its social networks saying that the countdown has already begun.

Taking into account the confrontation between Huawei and the US government and that in China smart phones do not have Google services installed, running modified versions of Android, it is assumed that Huawei may also take advantage of this event to inform about the development of its own mobile operating system, although it is not expected to be available until 2020.


Huawei flagship phones are known for their excellent cameras and we hope the Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro are no different. However, the Mate 30 Pro could wear a type of camera lens never seen before. Lets Go Digital has discovered a registered trademark of Huawei for the names “Cine-Lens” and “Camera Matrix”. The Camera Matrix option could be linked to the Time-of-Flight sensor, indicating additional work in the depth detection technology we saw in the P30 Pro.

But it is the trademark Cine-Lens the most interesting, which we hope will refer to a kinematic lens that specializes in video capture and works particularly well on objects that move at high speed. This type of lens is extremely expensive, so it is more likely that the Mate 30 Pro has a modified version focused on the photo. Yet, with the high standard of Huawei cameras, we are excited to see what to offer.

Otherwise, the camera on the back of the phone may be similar to the one we have seen in the P30 Pro, equipped with a powerful 50x digital zoom and a 5x optical zoom function.


Unusual array of cameras

A series of photos that apparently show the Huawei Mate 30 came to light and the images give us a better view of the unusual array of cameras on the back of the device. Published in Slashleaks, the photos present a phone design similar to other images previously filtered and published by other sources. There are three photos that show the next Huawei flagship phone from the side and the back. Unfortunately, there are no photos of the front.

Looking at the phone from the back, you can see how the Mate 30 is an evolution of the Mate 20 Pro, which had a square camera array containing three lenses. Here, in the filtered phone, an elongated version of this matrix of camera lenses is seen, with rounded corners.

The photos are quite dark and it is not easy to distinguish at first glance how many lenses are in the phone, but when lighting the image, it seems that there are four lenses, a flash unit and an unidentified sensor. The trademarks presented by Huawei in early 2019 suggest that you can use the names Cine-Lens and Camera Matrix for the lenses and functions of the Mate 30 Pro camera.

On the side, the Mate 30 looks thinner than the Mate 20 Pro, but there is a thicker camera bulge to house all those lenses. The power buttons added a red color, which was also used in the Mate 20 Pro. It should be noted that, as with all rumors and unofficial leaks, even if these images are real they may not be the final version of the device, but for now they wake up expectation of what to bring Huawei.

The cameras can annihilate those of the Galaxy Note 10

In August 2019, the usually reliable Ice Universe account shared an image that seemed to confirm that the camera of the Huawei Mate 30 Pro will have two 40-megapixel sensors. This surpasses in a sweeping way the sensor of the Galaxy Note 10, which is only 12 megapixels.

“It seems that there are many people who don't know how big the gap in photographic skills is. The Note 10 has no chance of beating Mate 30 Pro in terms of camera hardware, ”said the publication through its Twitter account.
