Huawei Mate 30, Mate 30 Pro, Mate 30 RS with Kirin 990 SoC, 5G Support Launched: Price, Specifications


After tons of rumors and leaks, Huawei has launched its one of the most awaited smartphones in China – Huawei Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro. These are the latest smartphone from the Mate series featuring unmatchable hardware combinations and features. Huawei Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro are the most advanced smartphone that comes with 5G support. 

Key features of Huawei Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro includes a circular quad-rear camera, 6.53-inch OLED Super high-resolution display, ultra-fast 5G support, and many more. Additionally, the company has launched one more version of this device called the Huawei Mate 30 RS that features a Porshe design. Let’s take a closer look at these smartphones.

Huawei Mate 30 Pro

The all-new Huawei Mate 30 Pro features a 6.53-inch OLED display with a resolution of 2400 x 1176. It has an aspect ratio of 18.4:9. Huawei is calling this display as “Horizon Display” as the screen is curved around the phone at 88-degrees – highest ever curve on any smartphone. 

The display comes with an anti-blue light feature that eliminates up to 25 percent of harmful blue light. Also, the display on Huawei Mate 30 and 30 Pro are powered by a Cinematic Vision color rendering engine that produces sharp and vivid color to the display.

The notch on the Huawei Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro is smaller than the predecessor (i.e., Huawei Mate 20). it’s now down to 26.6mm compared to the almost 33mm on last year’s phone. Inside the notch, there are a couple of sensors included such as ambient light and proximity sensor, gesture sensor. Additionally, it also comprises the standard and a 3D depth camera.

As we have expected, the Huawei Mate 30 Pro doesn’t have any volume or power button. You can control everything right from the screen – ofcourse the curved screen. Still, it isn’t cleared how this mechanism actually works. The Huawei Mate 30 Pro comes with IP68 water and dust resistant, so you don’t have to worry much about this phone if you drop it accidently on water.

Under the hood, the Huawei Mate 30 Pro is powered by the company’s latest Kirin 990 SoC that comes with the most advanced 5G modem in the industry. The chipset is further coupled with the Mali-G76 MP16 GPU with an upgraded GPU Turbo. There is also a graphene film that carries the heat away from the chipset to keep it cool. Apart from this, the Huawei Mate 30 Pro comes with 8GB of RAM and a choice between 128GB and 256GB storage. The NM card slot can help you expand that by 256GB.

Huawei claims it has the “most advanced 5G antenna design” with 21 antennas in total and 14 of them are dedicated to 5G. This device supports up to eight of the 5G global bands which is quite impressive. Also, it offers the fastest 5G speed with 50% more 5G speed than the Galaxy Note 10+.

There’s a dedicated sensor to recognize hand gestures, which works in conjunction with Huawei’s in-house Da Vinci NPU. The NPU is also used for the AI Auto-Rotate, which tracks your head to decide how to orient the UI instead of making guesses based on the accelerometer.

In the camera department, the Huawei Mate 30 Pro sports a quad-rear camera module that includes a 40MP Ultra-Wide Cine camera with f/1.8 aperture, another 40MP SuperSensing Wide camera with f/1.6, an 8MP telephoto lens with an f/2.4 aperture, and at last a 3D depth-sensing camera. That impressive zoom technology we saw debut on the Huawei P30 Pro is also returning as well and it comes with 45x zoom support. 

The camera further supports OIS + AIS image stabilization technology. It comes with the industry’s largest RYYB camera sensor which Huawei claims is approx 137% larger than other competing smartphones. The 32MP selfie camera is nestled next to the new 3D scanning hardware. 

Video recording is equally impressive. It supports 4K 60fps video capture (a first for Huawei). Frame rates go even higher in slow-motion mode, the phone can do a mind-boggling 7,680fps at 720p. Another fun thing to try is 4K time-lapse with HDR+ colors. For shooting in low light, the video camera can go up to ISO 52,000.

Apart from this, the Huawei Mate 30 Pro runs on the latest EMUI 10 with Android 10 at the top. However, Google Play Services’ situation still isn’t clear. Besides, the Huawei Mate 30 Pro is fuelled by a 4,500mAh battery that comes with up to 27W wireless charging technology, and 40W wired charging.

Huawei Mate 30


The Huawei Mate 30 is the base version of the Huawei Mate 30. Most of the features and specifications of this device are similar to that of Mate 30 Pro. It features a 6.62-inch OLED display with a resolution of 2340 x 1080. It has an aspect ratio of 18.4:9.

The screen is flat and with a smaller notch (the 3D sensor is different). Note that both Mates have in-display fingerprint readers.

The rear camera keeps the massive 1/1.7″ 40MP sensor with RYYB color filter and f/1.8 aperture. The 8MP telephoto camera with 3x optical and 5x hybrid zoom is also on board, both cameras have OIS. However, the ultrawide camera drops down to a 16MP sensor (f/2.2) and the selfie cam has a 24MP sensor.

The Kirin 990 remains in charge, however, the 8GB RAM capacity is an option – the base configuration has 6GB of RAM and 128GB storage (+ the NM slot, of course).

The battery gets both the 27W wireless and 40W wired charging support, unlike last year’s model which was majorly downgraded compared to the Pro. It doesn’t come with any wireless charging tech. The battery capacity is 4,200mAh.

Huawei Mate 30 RS

The Huawei Mate 30 RS is the most premium device among three that comes with a design inspired by Porshe supercars. It comes with a square camera module instead of a circular that we have seen in the Huawei Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro. 

But it features a leather back panel which is of course not the same vegan leather. Huawei claims that the Mate 30 RS comes with premium leather. All of the specs of the device remain as same as that of Huawei Mate 30 Pro. It only comes in a single variant with 12GB of RAM with 512GB of storage.
