At a presentation in Munich, HUAWEI introduced the flagship smartphone Mate 30 Pro. The key feature of the smartphone is the advanced main camera with two 40 megapixel sensors and high-aperture optics. The device also received a curved "screen-waterfall", a capacious battery and a top-end Kirin 990 processor.
The smartphone is equipped with a 6.53-inch Flex OLED display with a resolution of 2400x1176 pixels, bent at the sides at an angle of 88 degrees. This design eliminated the appearance of physical volume buttons on the side of the case - their role is played by touch zones on the surface of the screen itself. A relatively wide cutout for the selfie module and auxiliary sensors are provided in the upper part of the matrix.
There is no speaker on the front panel: the manufacturer used Screen Sound technology, which transmits sound directly through the display surface.
The Always-on Display function is supported for displaying notifications and hours in standby mode. The optical sub-screen fingerprint scanner and face recognition function is responsible for unlocking the device.
The smartphone is based on the latest 7-nm Kirin 990 processor, the Mali-G76 video accelerator is responsible for the graphics capabilities of the device. Additionally, a dedicated unit of neural computing (NPU) is provided, which is responsible for the operation of AI algorithms in various tasks and applications. To remove heat from the chipset, the manufacturer used a proprietary multilayer heat pipe cooling system.
The amount of RAM of the smartphone, depending on the configuration, is 8 or 12 GB, the internal drive - 128, 256 or 512 GB. You can expand the amount of internal storage using proprietary nanoSD memory cards.
One of the key features of the flagship news is the main camera module with four sensors and Leica optics. The main one, with a linear size of 1/1.54 ", a resolution of 40 megapixels, an equivalent focal length of 18 mm and an ultra-wide-angle lens, can record video in 4K resolution with a sensitivity of ISO 51,200 even in low light conditions. Among its additional functions is the shooting of super slow-motion video at a speed of 7680 frames per second, as well as a Time-Lapse mode with adjustable shutter speed, which will allow you to get a clear image when shooting a starry sky at night.
The second sensor with the same resolution, size 1/1, 7" and optical stabilization, is equipped with wide-angle aperture (f/1.6) optics with ISO 409 600 sensitivity. The third, at 8 MP, is equipped with a telephoto lens with optical stabilization and three-fold optical zoom. In hybrid mode, the smartphone provides a five-fold increase, and in digital mode, a thirty-fold increase. The depth sensor completes the combination to create the background blur effect. The front camera module is equipped with a similar sensor, which allows you to "separate" the subject from the background to create various effects when shooting a selfie.
For the autonomy of the smartphone meets the built-in battery with a capacity of 4500 mAh. It supports HUAWEI SuperCharge (40W) fast charging technology and HUAWEI SuperCharge Wireless 27-Watt charging technology. There is also a function for reversing wireless charging Reverse Wireless SuperCharge, with which you can “refuel” other smartphones and accessories by attaching them to the back of the Mate 30 Pro.
The device has IP68 protection. As an operating system, the smartphone received the latest version of Android 10 with the EMUI 10 shell. A key feature of the assembly was the support of the Ark compiler, which accelerates the operation of the OS and applications. HiCall function allows you to synchronize your smartphone with smart TVs for making video calls. Declared and the ability to connect the device to the on-board systems of vehicles compatible with the HUAWEI ecosystem.
Interestingly, the smartphone has a pre-installed proprietary app store from HUAWEI.
The company also introduced a special version - the Porsche Design HUAWEI Mate 30 RS. It will differ from the usual model in design and memory: 12 GB of RAM + 512 GB of ROM.
