Huawei’s Mate series is the next big flagship that will dominate headlines in the next few weeks to come. And while there’s still no official launch date, a couple of models listed on TENAA are allegedly being named the Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro. The model numbers are LIO-AL00 and TAS-AL00. Now, there’s currently no way to justify that these devices are indeed Huawei’s upcoming Mate duo, although a majority of speculation is of this opinion. The TENAA listings are fresh and still half-baked meaning that there’s not much data to chew on.
The good news is that these are official listings and since the entries are now live, we can expect them to get populated soon with images and specifications that will very much clear the dust regarding its identity. That said, the model numbers do bear some similarity with last year’s Mate 20 series yet we await more details before making any certain conclusions.
Now, there’s no dearth of information regarding the Mate 30 series, if we shift our attention to leaks. A report last weeks hinted that Huawei will, as usual, endow the new series with a flagship new Kirin 990 CPU (or Kirin 985). Moreover, the rear cameras are believed to be undergoing a massive upgrade with two main 40MP Sony IMX600 sensors. According to a tip by IceUniverse, one of them has a larger 1/1.55-inch sensor, while the second is an ultra-wide-angle camera with a 1/1.7-inch sensor. These two sensors will be accompanied by a third telephoto lens which is expected to be of 8MP, similar to the P30 Pro and a periscope zoom lens if these leaks end up true. This is strictly speaking only about the Mate 30 Pro. Other big features that are tipped for the Pro model include a 90Hz display, 55W fast charging, and 3D face recognition.
