Specs of the new Huawei Mate 30 Pro
Since last year we heard a lot of rumors about the new smartphone Huawei is planning to launch, the Huawei Mate 30 Pro, and today we can say it’s a fact. Like its name says it will compete with the flagships iPhone 11 Pro and Galaxy Note 10 Plus, the upgrade versions. This new device will incorporated an outstanding display, improved camera setup which will put a new benchmark for filming and various internal software upgrades. The new Huawei Mate 30 Pro has a good reference since the big success of its predecessor, the Mate 20 Pro, so it has us all with high expectations.
1. Horizon Display
Huawei has taken its previous curved edge display to a whole new dimension. This time the company has incorporated a ‘Horizon display’ into the new phone, it’s a screen with 6.5 inches and edges curved at 88 degree which leaves little space for physical buttons, this is the reason why the smartphone has add a digital functioning which activates by double taping in any of the sides and running your finger along with it.
The display it’s an OLED panel, can handle 60 hertz of refresh rate and sound-on-display tech that can remove the necessity of an in-ear speaker but you won’t have a stereo speaker set-up. An interesting point is the decreasing in resolution, the panel will go from 3120 x 1440 pixel to 2400 x 1176 pixel but this could mean more battery life.
2. Powerful battery and 5G connection
The Mate 30 Pro includes a big battery of 4500 mAh and supports 40W SuperCharge tech and the new 27W SuperWirelessCharge. Just like its predecessors, the new smartphone includes support for wireless charging 3x faster, meaning you can charge the FreeBuds 3 by only puting them on the back. The new phone has 256 gigabytes of storage, 8 gigabytes of RAM and you can expanded with a nano-SD card.
Now, one of the newest features it’s the 5G support Huawei promised for this flagship, it’s powered by Kirin 990 5G which can handle eight 5G bands, this means 5 more different supported bands than the Galaxy Note Plus.
3. Android 10
The company has pre-installed the new Android 10 as well as the EMUI 10 custom interface on the Mate 30 Pro, this means the phone won’t have Google Play services and its different apps. Huawei wants a workaround with this implementation, but still hasn’t reveal much information.
4. Fingerprint unlock system and other sensors
A big amount of users prefers using the fingerprint scanner to unlock their phones over other systems, Huawei can take advantage on this feature given that Apple and Google hasn’t include it into their latest smartphones. The Mate 30 Pro houses an optical in-display fingerprint scanner faster than any of its predecessors.
On the front there is a selfie camera of 32 megapixel that supports FHD and 2288 x 1080 pixel for filming, includes various photography options like panoramic mode, portrait mode, time lapses, smart filters and voice activated self-photos.
Huawei has added another cool sensor in the Mate 30 Pro and calls it Smart Rotate, it’s a gesture sensor that can identify air gestures like grab to screenshot and swipe to scroll.
5. 3D facial recognition system
Last year, the Mate 29 Pro surprised us all with its 3D face unlock system and received great reviews by the critic and the users for the accuracy and speed. Now, Huawei has an improved version within a wide notch on the screen of the Mate 30 Pro and it’s much faster than its predecessor.
6. Rear cameras
Differentiating from other flagships, the Mate 30 Pro houses a circular camera module within a highlighted ring, it owns a primary camera of 40 megapixel with f/1.6 which can handle optical image stabilization and works with a time-of-flight sensor and a telephoto shooter of 8 megapixel and f/2.4 which it’s up to 30 digital zoom and can supports 5x hybrid zoom and 3x optical zoom. There is also a super wide angle of 40 megapixel and a super sensing cine camera with an aperture of 1.8, meaning the capacity to capture wider areas.
You can record at 4K quality with 60 frames per second and have the option for super slow motion at 960 frames per second with a resolution of 1080 pixel. You can also record a ultra-slow motion video at 7680 frames per second but it’s limited to 720 pixel resolution. Finally, the company added a super night scene mode which it’s an upgrade version of the night mode already existing.
