Huawei has announced the Mate 30 Series, including the Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro at an event in Munich.
As the launch is still going on, we’re still waiting to find out whether the phone will be running Android or not – but it seems certain that the phone doesn’t have Google apps. The information we’ve received so far just says that the phones are running Huawei’s EMUI 10 operating system.
The Mate 30 Pro is a 5G handset. There’s an impressive-looking circular camera housing on the back with four lenses and a 6.53-inch edge-to-edge Horizon display – that means curved edges to you and me.
You can change the volume just by touching the edge of the display (it has a power button but no volume buttons). There’s also a vegan leather edition, too.
Again Huawei’s acoustic display tech is used, so there’s no need for a traditional speaker, while the wireless charging has also been sped up to 27W (the reverse charging has also been sped up). And, as you’d expect, it’s IP68 waterproof.
The four colours available are space silver, emerald green, cosmic purple and black.
The Mate 30, which we’re awaiting more details on, comes in both 4G and 5G versions.
There’s also a Porsche Design Mate 30 RS as we suspected which is also a 5G handset and features a waterproof leather back.
This has been “a challenging year” for Huawei, said CEO Richard Yu as he stepped on stage to announce the handsets but no other reference has been made to the company’s recent troubles.
