Huawei has presented yesterday its new range of mobiles during an event in Munich, Germany, its first phones after the veto of Donald Trump. The new Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro come with a minimalist design, high quality cameras and a breakthrough in communication.
The screen is Horizon OLED, 6.62 inches for the Mate 30 and 6.52 inches for the 30 Pro, and has curved edges to give an ‘infinite screen’ feel. Although the physical buttons disappear, the virtual ones will be available, in addition to the Mate 30 Pro’s facial unlocking and fingerprint reader systems.
They feature a Kirin 990, the most sophisticated smartphone chip available today, and slots for two SIM cards. The RAM is 6 Gb or 8 Gb (Mate 30) and 8 Gb (Mate 30 Pro). The battery has a long life: 4,200 mAh for the Mate 30 and 4,500 mAh for the Mate 30 Pro. In addition, they have fast charge, wireless and inverse, to be able to exchange energy with other devices.
The cameras are the highlight of these devices, as they are comparable to professional recording equipment. The Mate 30 is equipped with a triple SuperSensing camera, comprising a 40 Mpx lens, a 16 Mpx ultra wide-angle camera and an 8 Mpx telephoto lens. The Mate 30 Pro, on the other hand, has a revolutionary quad camera system with a 40 Mpx Cine lens, a 40 Mpx SuperSensing camera, a 16 Mpx ultra wide angle camera and an 8 Mpx telephoto lens. Therefore, all these sensors make the Huawei Mate 30 series the most capable phone for photography and video of smartphones available to consumers to date.
In addition, Huawei bets on connectivity with its Mate 30 Pro 5G, becoming the first second-generation phone to have such an advanced connection. Finally, they have also announced the Mate 30 RS Porsche Edition, which has 5G connectivity, 12 Gb of RAM and 256 Gb of storages. Obviously, the most remarkable aspect, in addition to its powerful features, is the design of Porsche in red or black leather with a back strap that serves both to grab the phone and to support it.
The issue that most concerned users was its operating system, because, after the U.S. veto, it seems that Huawei would have to stop using Android and Google applications. However, the company has announced that this range of phones has EMUI 10 with Android 10, a kind of open source operating system. In this way, users can download any app by searching for it on the Internet, as it does not have Google Play. Although it seems complicated, it is “more secure than it seems” and Huawei will provide users with a kind of guide so that the user can easily access the applications. “We are going to make it very easy for the installation of any application they want to work properly,” confirms the company.
Even if you don’t have pre-installed applications like Gmail or Google Maps, consumers will be able to install them manually. They have also created AppGallery, Huawei’s own shop with more than 11,000 applications that are intended to make up for the lack of these other tools. Even so, the company is currently negotiating to include social networks such as WhatsApp, Facebook or Instagram.
