Huawei Announces Mate 30 And Mate 30 Pro SmartphonesPA

Huawei has announced its next-generation of smartphones, just four months after President Trump banned their devices in the US with a national security order.

The 6.5-inch Mate 30 Pro has a screen that curves around the edges, with the surprisingly bigger 6.6-inch regular Mate 30 has a standard flat display. Because of these changes, Huawei has ditched the physical volume buttons on the side of the device and will use a touch-sensitive solution.

The biggest difference for these phones compared to the Mate 20 series released last year is the circular camera cutout on the back with four sensors on the back. Standard Mate 30 devices come with a main 40-megapixel camera, an ultra wide-angle 16-megapixel camera, an 8-megapixel telephoto camera and a “laser focus” sensor. Whats different about the Pro is the addition of a 3D depth sensor replacing the “laser sensor” as well as the ultra-wide angle being upgraded to 40-megapixels.

As well as being able to capture seriously impressive pictures, its also great at capturing video. It supports 4K at 60fps capture and they impressively displayed on stage the Mate 30 Pros ability to record ultra slow motion at 7680 fps. A video showed a hummingbird mid-flight with its wings visible despite the fast speed that they were moving. Theres also the addition of 4k time-lapses, low-light capture and real-time Bokeh video.

Battery sizes are different in the two phones, with the Mate 30 Pro having a larger 4,500mAh battery, in comparison to the 4,200mAh battery in the Mate 30. Huawei has doubled the speed of its reverse wireless charging, with both models supporting fast 40W wired charging and 27W wireless charging.

Both models have got the companys all-new Kirin 990 chip, which Huawei says offers a speed increase and has a built-in 5G modem. The new chip offers better CPU and GPU performance compared to the previous model.
