This past week, we attended the Huawei Developer Conference (HDC2019) in Shenzhen and Dongguan, China. During our time there, we witnessed the official introduction of Huaweis HarmonyOS and the EMUI 10-Update for Huawei‘s current line of Smartphones. But subject of talks on the campus besides the official announcements were rumors surrounding the unveiling of Huawei’s next flagship phone, the Mate 30 and the Mate 30 Pro being imminent – on September 19th.
And while we’re all anxiously awaiting the results of the impending US-embargo on China on the 19th of August, Huawei itself could be gearing up to fight back. A possible answer would be to announce its independence from US suppliers such as Google by introducing their first flagship smartphones with a new Operating System – HarmonyOS or «Hongmeng», as it’s called in China. Of course it’s a long shot, and we don’t know if and how a flagship Huawei Mate 30 Pro would be running on HarmonyOS – besides it optically resembling EMUI 10, as Huawei itself has already confirmed.
Is this how the new Huawei Mate 30 Pro will look like?
And while so far no official Pictures of the Huawei Mate 30 Pro have leaked yet, «Techgarage» took to the drawing board in order to imagine a possible design of device based on the info we have so far. As always, our trusted graphic designer Ben Geskin produced some high-quality renders in order to give us all an idea on what might await us, based on what rumors we’ve heard on-site at Huawei HQ.
Purported Tech Specs of the Huawei Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro
More current rumors surrounding the upcoming Huawei Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro are as follows:
- Either the Mate 30 Pro or both models will support 5G
- The main chipset (SoC) will be a Kirin 990 – to be unveiled at IFA Berlin
- Quad-Cam Setup with large Image Sensors (see Tweet embedded below)
- Large notch housing 3 different Sensors
- Launch in China will apparently be on September, 26th
There seems to be a lot of people who don't know how big the gap is. I'll draw a picture to tell you that, in fact, Note10 has no chance of beating Mate30 Pro in terms of camera hardware. pic.twitter.com/f8W2kSTLqk
