According to a new report, the Huawei Mate 30 5G will launch in December this year. This information actually comes straight from the company, as Huawei talked a bit about it during its 5G conference in Russia.
As per the provided info, Huawei showed a slide (which is pictured in the gallery down below) in which it clearly mentions that the Mate 30 5G is coming in December, just pay attention to the last image on that slide, and the writing below it.
A 4G variant of the Huawei Mate 30 will almost certainly arrive as well, though it is expected to launch a bit sooner than the 5G model. The Huawei Mate 20 was announced in October 2018, so the Mate 30 may arrive in either October or November.
The Huawei Mate 30 5G will not become the company's first 5G-enabled smartphone, as the company already announced the Huawei Mate X earlier this year, and that phone comes with 5G support. The Huawei Mate X is not available just yet, but it will become available soon, it is slated to go on sale in September.
Not much is known about the Huawei Mate 30 in general, just yet, as we did not see that many leaks or rumors regarding the phone. The device may ship with a circular camera cutout on the back, though, at least according to a new leak that popped up, and showed us that circular cutout on the back of a case.
We cannot confirm that the leaked case is legit, though, so take this information with a grain of salt, as it's usually the case with such leaks. No doubt that we'll see many such leaks before the Mate 30 becomes official.
The device is expected to ship with Huawei's brand new flagship processor, the Kirin 985 or Kirin 990, depending on which name will the company utilize, though the latter one is more probable. That chip will become official before the device goes on sale, quite probably in September during IFA, or perhaps even sooner than that.
The Huawei Mate 30 will probably be made out of metal and glass, just like its predecessors, and chances are that Huawei is looking for a way to remove a display notch from that phone. The Huawei P30 series included a waterdrop display notch, so it would be nice to see that notch completely gone on the Huawei Mate 30. The company may opt for a pop-up camera or something of the sort, we'll see.
Android Q may come pre-installed on the Huawei Mate 30, along with Emotion UI (EMUI) 11, but it all depends on when the phone will become official. The device will also incorporate a large battery on the inside, as it's usually the case with Huawei's Mate flagships. Wireless charging will be a part of the experience, and the same goes for extremely fast wired charging.
The phone itself will hopefully leak in the near future, and give us more info about the design, but it's safe to expect a curved display on the device, very thin bezels, and plenty of curves.
