September 19 is the date of the launch of the new Huawei Mate 30 series of smartphones. And recently, what appears to be official promotional images of the new flagship smartphones by the Chinese tech giant have been circling the net for some time now.
Thanks to reporter and renowned leaker Evan Blass on Twitter, the rest of the Internet can take a gander at what the new Mate 30, Mate 30 Pro and Mate 30 Lite would look like.
The new Mate 30 series will reprise the 4-camera layout in the middle, much like its Mate 20 predecessors. However, the cameras are encapsulated in a circular cutout, as opposed to a square one. Only the Mate 30 Lite seems to sport the square cutout, though it is slightly more rounded.
The Mate 30 Pro also seems to sport a curved screen, much akin to that of the Infinity-O display on the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.
In addition to these base Mate 30 designs, there are also leaked promotional images of the luxury Porsche Design Mate 30 Pro. Much like its Mate 20 counterpart, it seems to also have a red-and-black, leather-and-glass cover.
In terms of specs, nothing concrete has been unveiled on the Mate 30 series yet, but it is highly likely that the new smartphones will house the new Kirin 990 chipset developed by Huawei. Additionally, an interesting Tweet revealed the capabilities of the cameras on the Mate 30, indicating that it might come with two 40MP cameras, an 8MP one, as well as a time-of-flight camera.
But of course, arguably the biggest question mark centering around the Huawei Mate 30 series will be its inherent lack of Google Android support, especially since it is the first flagship smartphone to be announced after Huawei’s recent US ban. It appears that it might be using Huawei’s very own modified version of the Android OS, HarmonyOS.
In any case, the Huawei Mate 30 series will be one to look out for when it’s officially announced on September 19, especially with specs, cameras pricing, as well as availability.
