Huawei Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro is now official. At an event held in Munich, Germany, the Chinese smartphone maker introduced its newest flagship to the global market. The Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro builds on the success of P30 Pro and Mate 20 series. While the devices can be described as big-ticket launch from the world’s second-largest smartphone maker, it comes under difficult circumstances. The launch today is being overshadowed by the ban imposed by the US that has restricted it from working with technology companies like Google, Qualcomm, and Microsoft.

Huawei Mate 30 Pro, just like its predecessor, is a spec behemoth in the smartphone market. The Chinese networking giant has managed to pack the best of everything to make it really premium device.

It will be available in green, lavender, black and breathing crystal colors. Also Read - Huawei Mate 30 Pro teaser hints at waterfall style screen

The Mate 30 Pro features a 6.53-inch Flex OLED display with 2K+ (2,400×1,176 pixels) resolution. It also features a waterfall screen with 18.4:9 aspect ratio, 88-degree curved design similar to Vivo NEX 3 5G and in-display fingerprint scanner. Powered by Kirin 990, it comes with 8GB RAM and 256GB. It runs EMUI 10-based on Android 10 but lacks access to Google applications. On the software end, Huawei has also added multi-screen collaboration on the smartphone but it is likely limited to Huawei-branded laptops. There is 3D face unlock, IP68 water and dust resistance, 4,500mAh battery with Huawei SuperCharge 40W wired and Wireless Huawei SuperCharge 27W charging. It also comes with a new reverse charging technology allowing 15W charging.

The company has also added a “Gesture Sensor” in the front camera notch for a number of AI-powered features along with IR sensor. These features include “AI private View”, “AI Gesture control”, and “AI Auto-Rotate”. The company has also added a new “Slide-Touch interaction” including an invisible virtual key on the side. It also provides support for voice and volume controls on both sides of the device. It also retains the 3.5mm headphone jack, which was missing from its predecessor. Users will also get the usual connectivity options including Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth v5.1, and USB Type-C port.

The camera specifications

The Huawei Mate 30 Pro has four rear cameras with 40-megapixel optically stabilized “Cine” primary sensor with an ultra-wide-angle lens and f/1.6 aperture. The second camera features a 40-megapixel RYYB sensor with f/1.6 aperture and up to 4,09,600 ISO. Moving to the next camera we have an 8-megapixel sensor with a telephoto lens and support for 3x optical zoom, 5x hybrid zoom, and 30x digital zoom. The last one is used for 3D depth sensing. The company also showcased Huawei CameraKit for deep integration with DJI Osmo Mobile 3 and Profoto C1 and C1 Plus portable lights.

Other features include ultra low-light video, ultra slow-motion video at 7680 fps, real-time cinematic bokeh, Huawei AIS for ultra-stable recording and 4K HDR+ time-lapse. The 7680 fps video is 8 times slower than 960fps. At the front, there is a 32-megapixel selfie camera with f/2.0 aperture. The Mate 30 Pro is priced at 1,099 for the 8GB RAM and 256GB model. Buyers will have the option to get the device in two different finishes and multiple colors. Talking about the regular glass finish, buyers can choose from Space Silver, Emerald Green, Cosmic Purple, and Black.

In addition to the usual 4G version, Huawei has also announced a 5G version of the Huawei Mate 30 Pro. The Huawei Mate 30 Pro 5G is similar to the regular 4G Mate 30 Pro with two key differences. First is the inclusion of Kirin 990 5G SoC with support of Dual SIM 5G support. The second one is two additional color options including Orange and Forest Green in a new leather-like textured finish. The company has priced the 5G variant with 8GB RAM and 256GB storage for 1,199.
