Huawei unwraps Mate 30 series with 5G, quad cameras

Mr Thomas Husson, vice president and principal analyst at market research company Forrester, said it will "take time" for Huawei to offer a compelling alternative to Google's version of Android - not just in developing its own operating system, but also to "foster a competitive ecosystem of brand and developer partners". It's round, reminiscent of the Lumia 2010, as too are the flat tops and bottoms of the phone.

The Huawei Mate 30 series will be available in a variety of colors, with both models being available in Black, Space Silver, Cosmic Purple and Emerald.

The two most impressive hardware features of the Porsche Design Huawei Mate 30 RS are its Kirin 990 5G chipset and its quad camera.

The Mate 30 has 4 Leica-engineered lenses on the back, houses in a circular module that is created to look like a professional camera. It has a wider-ratio sensor than the others, to match the widescreen format videos are normally watched in.

We've seen Samsung's Edge displays for a few years now, but Huawei's equivalent, the Horizon Display, goes even further off the front of the phone, extending to nearly 90 degree over either side. But Huawei has been bolder than Samsung, giving its new phone more extreme curvature - that's the "Horizon Display" with its 88-degree angle on the edges. A close image of this smartphone shows its general square shape and the rear has a circular camera design (cameras are in a circle).

With 27W wireless charging, the Mate 30 Pro will charge faster than an iPhone 11 Pro Max plugged in to a wall charger, and with a 4500mAh battery, it's a leader when compared to other slender flagships. It uses a 40MP ultra wide-angle + 40MP wide-angle + 8MP telephoto + 3D depth sensor.

On the front, there's a 32-megapixel selfie camera as well as a more sophisticated 3D face recognition system that's smaller than last year's, though it's only on the Mate 30 Pro. Huawei has also introduced a gradient finish that goes from glossy to matte and Huawei claims the bottom of the Mate 30 Pro is anti-slip and fingerprint resistant.

While the Huawei Mate 30 Pro can not include Google's mobile services and apps like Gmail, Maps, or even Chrome, Huawei has not been deterred, releasing a smartphone every bit deserving of the "premium" or "flagship" appellations.

Want more silly numbers? The Mate 30 Pro can capture slow motion video at 7680 fps, which is another example of silly numbers that looked great on Huawei's demo video, with a hummingbird demo looking incredibly well held together. Profoto has also joined the party, with the C1 and C1 Plus creating the world's 1st studio photo kit designed for smartphones.

The Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro will not be available to buy in the USA due to the government's imposed trade ban. The alleged reason is the absence of Google Play services and apps due to the U.S. blacklisting.

The tech press reports that this yawning gap in functionality has left some sellers reluctant to stock the new phones, fearing a wave of rapid-fire returns from dissatisfied customers. There's also another 40-megapixel ultra-wide cine sensor with an aperture of f/1.8.
