Huawei is expected to soon announce its upcoming Mate 30 series of flagship phones and if a new report is to be believed, this could happen on September 19. As per the site @hi-tech, the president of Huawei Consumer Business Software, Dr Wang Chenglu, has confirmed this development. The company executive also apparently mentioned that the new phones would be powered by the unannounced Kirin 990 processor, which is touted to be better in terms of power efficiency. The alleged chip being used on the Mate 30 series comes as a surprise since the smartphone maker was rumoured to announce the HiSilicon Kirin 985 SoC. However, it could be a case of simply renaming the same chip for marketing reasons. 

In addition, Chenglu is also said to have revealed that the upcoming Mate 30 lineup might not come pre-installed with Google Play Services. While the handsets will most likely be running on the newly announced EMUI 10, there’s no info on whether the devices will feature the company’s new HongmengOS or Android. While the source of this information is said to be the president of Huawei Consumer Business Software, at the time of writing this article, the company has not officially outed the news. So, we suggest you take the information with a pinch of salt for now. 

As for the Kirin 990 being more power efficient, it is to be expected from a 7nm chip that is being fabricated via TSMC’s EUV process, which is said to enable about 20 percent greater transistor density for the SoC. The chip is also expected to be more powerful than its predecessor and the company might also introduce a new neural computing unit for the SoC. 

Coming to the Huawei Mate 30 lineup, a previous report suggested that the devices will feature a square-shaped camera module on the back, which could house two custom developed 40MP sensors. The Mate 30 Pro is reported of featuring a 40MP sensor with 1/1.5-inch sensor size and f/1.6-f/1.4 aperture lens. The sensors could use the company’s patented RYYB pixel layout and there could be another 40MP sensor with 1/1.7-inch sensor size with a 120-degree ultra-wide lens. Along with that, Mate 30 series might have another 8MP camera with 5X hybrid zoom.
