Huawei Mate 30 Pro release date, price & specification rumours

Huawei is on something of a roll as far as its Android phones are concerned. It may be facing difficulties in the US and certain other countries, but in Europe and the UK – as well as its home market, China, buyers are flocking to buy its latest handsets. The Mate 20 Pro is the most recent flagship and packs in a whole load of features including the new Kirin 980 processor, three rear cameras, an in-screen fingerprint sensor, 3D face scanner and reverse wireless charging as well as normal wireless charging.

As the company has ‘dual flagships’, the P30 Pro will be the next to launch in a couple of months at MWC, or just after. This will go head-to-head with the Samsung Galaxy S10 and likely use the Kirin 980 but improve on other aspects including cameras and possibly gain wireless charging as well.

So what else can Huawei do to improve upon both the Mate 20 Pro and putative P30 Pro? That’s the question we’ll attempt to answer here based upon the latest rumours, patents, leaks and the stuff we want to see in the new phone.

Mate 30 Pro release date rumours

Expected announcement date: 16 October 2019

Huawei has adopted a regular release schedule.

It launches the new P-series phones early in the year and then updates the Mate series later in the autumn. For the last couple of years, the new Mate phone has launched in the middle of October and there’s no reason to suspect Huawei will change things around in 2019.

Mate 30 Pro price rumours

With flagship phone prices on the rise, it’s possible that the Mate 30 will be the most expensive Huawei phone yet. The Mate 20 Pro costs GBP899, up from the GBP799 that the Mate 10 Pro cost.

Could the Mate 30 Pro cost GBP999? It’s not beyond the realms of possibility, but we suspect it won’t rise that much.

Ultimately, we’ll have to wait until the announcement in October to find out.

Mate 30 Pro feature & spec rumours

If one thing is sure, the Mate 30 will get an upgraded processor. Huawei usually announces the chip at IFA in September before launching the phone in October.

And it’ll probably be called the Kirin 990: it doesn’t take a genuis to see where the naming strategy is headed. Huawei’s CEO, Richard Yu, says that Huawei will continue to focus on AI in 2019. In an open letter he stated, “We believe in the power of AI and are committed to using technology to extend the boundaries of what is humanly possible.

For example, we are working with several organizations to leverage Huawei AI to help deaf children learn to read by translating select children’s books into sign language, and to develop a tool that identifies visual abnormalities.”

Again, this isn’t a surprise. All phone chip makers are investing in AI R&D and predict that within the next decade phones will have proper artificial intelligence rather than the ‘AI’ assistants and apps that we’re seeing today. The Kirin 990, then, will likely take the next step in making this a reality with even better NPU performance.

It’s way too early to know what might change about the screen size or resolution.

The only information so far – via Mobielkopen – is that Huawei has filed a patent for a phone case with a larger-than-before camera cutout.

Huawei Mate 30 Pro release date, price & specification rumours

Instead of the square arrangement on the Mate 20 Pro, the cutout is now rectangular. This could well be to house an extra two cameras, bringing the total to five. It wouldn’t be the only phone with such a high number of lenses: the Nokia 9 PureView is said to have a ‘penta-camera’ on the rear as well.

Whether Huawei would use the extra lenses for even more zoom or something else entirely remains to be seen.

We’ll update this article as and when more details emerge on the Mate 30 Pro.
