Huawei are forging ahead despite their ongoing ban from the Android operating system.
In Munich, Germany the mega tech Chinese based company launched the annual upgrade to their Mate series – the Mate 30.
With glitz, glamour and fanfare the phablet device (largest version being 6.8 inch) was revealed to not be built with Google Apps.
Instead Huawei will be using their own App store, with Huawei based Apps.
The Mate 30 comes in two versions: standard at 6.6 inch and the ‘Pro model weighing in at 6.5 inch.
As we have seen with previous iterations of Huawei smartphones, it’s all about the camera’s.
Using Leica lens technology, the Mate 30 has a 40-megapixel camera with a f/1.8 aperture, an ultra wide-angle 16-megapixel f/2.2 camera, an 8-megapixel f/2.4 telephoto camera, and a “laser focus” sensor. Phew – that’s a lot.
Both models have the standard 8GB RAM and 256 GB storage and are powered by Huawei’s own super chipset, the Kirin 990.
On top of this there’s a third option.
Porsche Design and Huawei and have partnered again to launch the new PORSCHE DESIGN HUAWEI Mate 30 RS Series.
The fifth handset to join the exclusive line-up, the PORSCHE DESIGN HUAWEI Mate 30 RS continues to set the standard for performance and high-end smartphone engineering and functional design. The new device combines cutting edge technology with the ultimate in smartphone aesthetics.
Powered by the newest Huawei Kirin 990 5G, the world’s first flagship 5G SoC, the PORSCHE DESIGN HUAWEI Mate 30 RS supports both 5G Non-Standalone(NSA) and Standalone(SA) modes, adds to its performance credentials with wireless Huawei SuperCharge and a sleek aerodynamic design enhanced by two luxurious color versions.
While the color black represents simplicity and strength, red is passionate, glamorous and adventurous. The PORSCHE DESIGN HUAWEI Mate 30 RS takes the lead in upgrading to the all-new EMUI10 operating system. Designed based on human factor, EMUI10 delivers comfortable user experience.
EMUI10 operating system features a contemporary magazine inspired layout and dark mode to ensure comfort and readability when night falls.
Black and Red is a theme prominent in many of Porsche’s iconic sports cars and the PORSCHE DESIGN HUAWEI Mate 30 RS uses these colors to perfectly express the key dual attributes of power and speed. Handmade premium leather enframes the vertical glass stripe on the back and ensures together with the aerodynamic curves of the body a firm, ergonomic grip and premium touch that gives the feeling of complete control.
The handcrafted semi-aniline top grain leather is soft yet highly durable, able to withstand the wear and tear of everyday use. Each phone undergoes extensive resistance and durability testing to guarantee longevity and a consistent user experience.
The Huawei Kirin 990 5G SoC represents the pinnacle of mobile chip technology, paired with the PORSCHE DESIGN HUAWEI Mate 30 RS and it’s a potent combination of power and performance.
