Confirms September launch

This week, Huawei finally unveiled the P30 series. The sequel to last year’s successful flagship series has launched the world’s first Leica quad camera. Like last year, Huawei promises another hype-filled year.

Without catching their breath, Huawei has started the hype train for the upcoming Mate 30 series. In a press event in Malaysia, a Huawei official has teased the premium series. According to the official, the company is already testing the Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro internally.

Likewise, the official revealed the series’ eventual launch — sometime in September or October. Last year, the Mate 20 launched in October. An October launch for the P30 series makes sense.

As for hardware, Huawei has not revealed any substantial information about the series. However, some rumors have speculated on an improved Kirin 985 chipset. Similarly, Huawei will likely install a 5G modem into the series.

Besides the Mate 30 series, Huawei has also unveiled the foldable Mate X. The company has introduced a lot of amazing features for the year. Based on existing rumors, Huawei will keep the hype going until the end of the year.

The phone features a glass back design and will come in three colors: Midsummer Purple, Crush Blue and Black.

In terms of its display, the phone has a 6.26 inch FHD LCD display with a punch hole at the top left of the display. The punch hole houses the 32MP front-facing camera. Meanwhile, there are quad cameras on the back — consisting of a 48MP main camera with an f/1.8 aperture wide-angle lens, a 16MP ultra-wide angle camera, a 2MP macro camera and a 2MP depth sensor.

It has a 3,750 mAh battery that can be topped up with a 22.5W SuperCharge fast charging technology.
