Along with the Mate 30 Pro model, HUAWEI introduced a “lightweight” version of the flagship smartphone called the Mate 30. The more affordable new product received the same Kirin 990 processor - the main differences between the devices lie in the camera module and some design features.
Unlike the older model, the Mate 30 received a “flat” 6.62-inch OLED display with side frames. The screen resolution with a small “fringe” for the front camera and an integrated fingerprint scanner is 2340x1080 pixels. The glass case of the device is protected from water and dust according to the IP53 standard. One of the features of the gadget was the support of the contactless control function.
The smartphone is built on the basis of the flagship 7-nm mobile platform Kirin 990 with a maximum clock frequency of 2.86 GHz, a neural computing module (NPU) and a Mali-G76 graphics accelerator. The amount of RAM is 8 GB, the internal drive - 128 GB. Another difference from the Pro modification was the modem - the smartphone supports 4G networks, despite the support of the fifth-generation networks by the platform itself.
The main camera module of the device is represented by three sensors. The main, 40-megapixel with wide-angle optics, equivalent focal length (EGF) of 27 mm and aperture of f/1.8, is supplemented by an auxiliary 8 megapixel (f/2.4) with a telephoto lens, EGF of 17 mm and optical stabilization. Macro shooting from a distance of 2.5 cm and night mode are supported.
The gadget's camera with an ISO 204 800 photosensitivity supports three-time optical, five-time hybrid, and 30x digital zoom. The combination is completed by a 16-megapixel sensor with an ultra-wide-angle lens (f/2.2) and a laser autofocus sensor. The resolution of the sensors of the dual front camera is 24 megapixels (f/2.0).
The battery capacity of the model is 4200 mAh, supports fast wired (40 W) and fast wireless (27 W) charging. Like the Pro version, the Mate 30 runs Android 10 with the proprietary EMUI 10 add-in and the built-in App Gallery app store.
