Despite all the controversy surrounding Huawei’s presence in the US marketplace, you can’t deny the fact that the Mate 20 Pro took the smartphone market by storm. The Mate 20 Pro, quite figuratively, brought a gun to a knife fight, with its cameras and 7nm processor kicking up quite a storm.
Naturally, we here at Techquila, have a lot of expectations for the launch of the Mate 30 Pro in October, even though US legislation is not that favorable to Huawei. Today we’ve put together some leaks and renders we’ve come across to give you a fair idea of what to expect from the phone.
Last week, Ice Universe (a leaker who generally focuses on Samsung phones) shared an image of the Mate 30 Pro’s purported screen-protector film. This reveals a couple of things; the display will have an edge to edge design, similar to what Samsung uses and that Huawei will be opting for a central camera cutout towards the top within the display area. Again, this is quite similar to what we’ve been seeing in the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 leaks and I honestly don’t mind if both phones come out with a similar design. Anything without a notch is an absolute win, to be honest.
On the back, we can now expect a circular camera cutout with a radial arrangement of sensors with a central flash module akin to the yesteryear Nokia Lumia 1020. These features are visualized in a fresh render for the Mate 30 Pro put out by Ben Geskin.
Though it’s saddening to see Huawei abandon their stove like camera layout that used to set their phone apart, we have our fingers crossed hoping that this was a decision based on functionality. A 4th camera perhaps?
For now, we’d suggest that you take these rumors with a pinch of salt as we aren’t close to the launch date just yet.
