Huawei has announced the Mate 30 Pro, price tag starting at €1099, its new flagship smartphone that boasts four cameras and a bigger sensor.
Announced at a launch event in Germany, the Huawei Mate 30 Pro offers a four-camera setup that includes a 40-megapixel super-wide-angle camera with a new, larger 1/1.7-inch sensor and an f/1.8 aperture.
There’s another 40-megapixel wide-angle camera with an f/1.6 aperture, which also has a 1/1.7-inch sensor, along with an 8-megapixel telephoto f/2.4 camera offering 3x zoom and a time-of-flight camera for gauging depth in a scene. The second 40MP and 8MP cameras are also image-stabilised.
The Huawei Mate 30 Pro also marks the debut of the company’s new Kirin 990 processor, announced a few weeks ago. The Kirin 990 chipset enables faster image processing and helps the Mate 30 Pro deliver 4K video at 60fps. It can also capture 1080p video at 960fps or 720p footage at a staggering 7,680fps.
On the front of the Mate 30 Pro is a selfie camera offering 32-megapixel resolution.
Other features include a new 6.53-inche curved OLED Horizon display, which wraps around the edges of the handset. A new 4,500mAh battery design promises up to two days’ use.
Huawei Mate 30
Sitting below the Mate 30 Pro will be the Huawei Mate 30, a budget-friendlier version of the flagship, priced at €799. The main trade off is you swap the 40-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera for a 16-megapixel camera.
You also lose the time-of-flight camera, and the battery is a little bit smaller (4,200mAh).
