The Huawei Mate 30 is expected to include the Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro which will be released later this year. The duo will replace Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro with 3 rear-view cameras launched late last year. The latest information on Twitter reveals that the Mate 30 line will use Kirin 985 chips and run HongMeng OS in China.
According to the source, the Mate 30 line will be released on September 22. In the past two years, Huawei has often launched the Mate line in October. In China, the Mate 30 line will run the HongMeng OS operating system developed by Huawei but it is unclear which operating system will be used by Huawei for flagship models. This is in the international market.
After Google withdrew its Android license, Huawei announced that they have plan B for this situation. The Chinese giant has quickly registered the trademark of HongMeng OS and the Ark OS. It is likely that Huawei's operating system will be called HongMeng OS in China while Ark OS will be the name used in the international market.
Kirin 985 is expected to be the chip used on the Mate 30. This chip is built on the 2nd generation 7nm process, using other advanced ultraviolet EUV technology. The chip is also expected to support 5G thanks to Huawei's Balong 5000 5G modem.
The Kirin 980 chip will be released at IFA 2018 so it is likely that IFA 2019 will witness the launch of Kirin 985 chip. According to speculation, Mate 30 Pro will support 5G connection.
The render image is said to be Huawei Mate 30
Last month, leaked information suggested that the Mate 30 line would have a 6.71 inch OLED screen produced by the BOE. It is not clear what the design of this screen looks like, has rabbit ears or not. However, rumors say that Mate 30 will have a fingerprint sensor on the screen but no face recognition.
The back of the Mate 30 is expected to still have a square camera cluster with LED in the middle and 4 cameras with 4 corners as you see in the above render image. Mate 30 is expected to have 4,200mah battery that supports 55W fast charging.
