The Huawei Mate 30 series introduction is still months away, but one of the first Huawei Mate 30 concept creations has just surfaced online. This concept design comes from the “Concept Creator” YouTube channel, and it actually looks quite compelling.
The concept video itself is embedded down below, and we’re looking at over two minutes worth of content here. The phone shown in the video is made out of metal and glass, just like the Mate 20 series, and a curved display is a part of the package here, same as on the Mate 20 Pro.
The device that you can see in the video comes with a teardrop display notch, though you will notice that an earpiece is nowhere to be found. There’s a good reason for that, this phone is envisioned to sport the same earpiece-replacement technology as the P30 Pro, a vibrating screen.
This phone is basically bezel-less, aside from the waterdrop notch, there are no bezels here, even the bezel below the display is nowhere to be found. The source actually envisioned the Kirin 985 SoC to fuel this smartphone, even though that chip is not yet announced, and we’re not even sure it will ever become a thing, as Huawei may opt for the Kirin 990 naming instead.
All the physical keys are located on the right-hand side of this phone, and believe it or not, the source even attached a 3.5mm headphone jack to the device. An in-display fingerprint scanner has also been envisioned for this phone, and the same can be said for a Type-C USB port which sits on the bottom of the device.
This Huawei Mate 30 concept actually has a rather odd-looking camera setup on the back. There seem to be four cameras included, along with an LED flash and what seems to be a laser autofocus or perhaps a ToF camera… details were not shared. The sheer placement of those sensors looks odd, though, without order, which is not typical for Huawei.
The source shown several color variants of the Huawei Mate 30 concept smartphone, including black, and three color variants that seem to be gradient. One of them combines blue and white colors, other utilizes purple and red ones, while the third one is a combination between blue and green colors.
That is pretty much everything there is to say about this concept smartphone. The Huawei Mate 20 was announced back in October last year, and its successor, the Huawei Mate 30 is expected to arrive in October or November this year, along with the Mate 30 Pro, and possibly the Mate 30 X.
The Huawei Mate 30 did leak several times thus far, though we’ve seen some conflicting info when it comes to the design, though it’s safe to assume that it will resemble the P30 Pro to some degree.
The phone will probably ship with an upgraded camera setup on the back, and it will be fueled by Huawei’s upcoming flagship processor, though we still do not know will Huawei opt for the Kirin 985 or Kirin 990 naming. That processor is expected to become official before the phone gets announced, but we’ll see.
