HIGHLIGHTS

Huawei Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro are confirmed to launch on September 19.

The launch event will be held in Munich.

It is still unclear if the Huawei Mate 30 series will run Android.

Confirming previous rumours, Huawei has announced the launch date of its upcoming Mate 30 series. The Huawei Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro are set to launch on September 19 in Munich. Recently, Huawei’s 90-day extension period to conduct business with US firms ended, and Google has officially said that Huawei won’t be allowed to use the company's Android OS, services and popular apps like Google Maps on the upcoming Huawei Mate 30 series. 

Huawei took to Twitter to announce the launch date of the Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro. The company is urging consumers to “rethink possibilities” - hinting at an Android substitute on the Mate 30 series. The teaser suggests a circular rear camera setup, which was also seen on alleged leaked promo image of the Huawei Mate 30 Pro.

Huawei Mate 30 Pro is expected to sport the same quad rear camera setup that is used on the P30 Pro. The P30 Pro features a 40MP primary sensor that has an f/1.6 aperture lens. In contrast, a previous report suggests that the Huawei Mate 30 Pro could feature two custom-made 40MP cameras on the back, instead of just one. The handset is most likely to use the company’s patented RYYB pixel layout. 

The Mate 30 series is tipped to be powered by the unannounced Kirin 990 processor, which is touted to be better in terms of power efficiency. Additionally, Huawei Consumer Business Software, Dr Wang Chenglu, has reportedly said that the upcoming Mate 30 lineup might not come pre-installed with Google Play Services. The company might use its home-grown HarmonyOS, which can apparently be used on a wide range of devices including TVs, smartphones, wearables, and more. 

Additionally, the Mate 30 series is said to ship with 25W wireless charging support, which is even higher than the 15W wireless fast charging that is currently available on Samsung’s latest Note flagship.
