Huawei Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro Officially Released


Today, two of Huawei‘s newest Smartphones, Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro have been released and offer the highest specs for Huawei phones at the moment. What are the specifications and prices? Both phones were released in an event held in Munich, Germany. Both of them carry different specifications, but the main difference is on the screen.

Huawei Mate 30 Pro carries a 6.53-inch screen that has a resolution of 2400×1080 pixels and uses a technology called ‘Horizon Display’ whose screen is curved on the right and left. While the Mate 30 screen is 6.62 inch 2340 x 1080 pixel which is not curved, aka flat and both use OLED panels.

Then, still in the face, Mate 30 Pro is equipped with a motion sensor hand gesture detector, which can be used to control the phone, such as taking screenshots or scrolling. While Mate 30 does not have this kind of feature, which makes it able to have a smaller notch than Mate 30 Pro.

Likewise, with the number of cameras, Mate 30 only has three cameras (main camera, ultra-wide, and telephoto). While Mate 30 Pro has four cameras, namely SuperSensing Camera, Cine Camera, the camera with a telephoto lens, and 3D Depth Sensing camera.

But when viewed in terms of innards, the two phones have relatively no striking difference. Except for the capacity of the Mate 30 Pro battery which is bigger, which is 4500mAh compared to 4200mAh. Both also have the same charging capability, which is 40W when using cable, 27W for wireless, and also supports wireless reverse charging.

System on a Chip (SoC) used in both phones is Kirin 990, with a CPU consisting of 2 Cortex-A76 (2.86GHz), 2 Cortex-A76 (2.09 GHz), and 4 Cortex-A55 (1.86GHz). Then the GPU uses Mali G76. The RAM capacity of both are the same, that is 8GB, but the storage Mate Pro 30 is greater, namely 256GB and 128GB only storage.

Unfortunately, such good specs are not supported by normal OS like other Android phones. Both Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro do use EMUI10, which is based on Android 10, but unfortunately, it doesn’t have a certification from Google that makes it unable to use Google Mobile Services (GMS), aka Google’s main applications, such as Maps, Play Store, and the like.

“We cannot use the Google Mobile Services core, we can only use Huawei Mobile Services. That is because the US government’s blocking makes this phone unable to be accompanied by the GMS core, we are forced to use the HMS core and run the Huawei application gallery in the Mate 30 series. , “concluded Richard Yu in the launch event.

About the price, the Mate 30 with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage costs 799 euros (around $880), the Mate 30 Pro with 8GB/256GB starts at 1099 euros (about $1210), while the no-holds-barred Porsche Design model will set you back €2095 ($2307). In addition, the launch of Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro, in Munich event also saw the launch of Watch GT 2 smartwatch, FreeBuds 3 wireless earphones, and Huawei Vision 4K TV.
