Having launched the P30 and P30 Pro smartphones in March this year, Huawei is already gearing up to develop its next-generation Mate-series flagship which we believe will be called the Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro. While it’s already been hinted that the Mate 30 Pro will be powered by a new Huawei chipset, a new piece of information has popped up on the internet revealing more details about the device.
Being a successor to the Mate 20 Pro, the upcoming Mate 30 Pro could feature a larger 6.71-inch OLED display made by BOE. The display, considering Huawei’s previous devices, will be curved on all four sides with a teardrop notch or hole-punch design at the top.
If Huawei decides to not feature a full-fledged notch, we can also expect the company to let go of its 3D face unlock technology and rely wholly on the in-display scanner.
As for performance, the Mate 30 Pro is now almost sure to equip the company’s upcoming Kirin 985 SoC. The 5G-enabled chipset will be manufactured using a FlipChip Package-on-Package process and will hit mass production during the third quarter of the year, right on time before the launch of the Mate 30 Pro. The chipset’s design allows transistors to be vertically stacked over another and that, in addition to the Extreme UltraViolet process, allows a 20 percent increase in transistor density. This helps in boosting the Kirin 985’s energy efficiency and performance.
The Mate 30 Pro is also expected to feature a four-lens camera setup for primary imaging. If that turns out to be true, the Mate 30 Pro could equip a tweaked version of P30 Pro’s camera. However, it remains to be seen how Huawei will incorporate the periscope telephoto lens inside the Mate 20 Pro-like square-shaped camera chamber.
Also to note is that, Huawei will be stressing on its 3D ToF sensor as part of the four-lens setup. That means we can expect the design to feature four lenses on four edges like in a square with the LED flash unit placed either in-between the sensors or outside the camera module.
Another detail revealed in the leak is the battery capacity of the Mate 30 Pro which will amount to 4,200mAh. The phone will also come with a 55W SuperCharge technology which is currently provided with the Mate X foldable phone. The 55W Huawei SuperCharge technology will deliver 85 percent of power in 30 minutes of charge. The Mate 30 Pro will also equip a 10W reverse wireless charging.
