The Huawei Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro are amongst the most anticipated smartphones of 2019, and yet they’re both still quite a mystery at this point in time. Despite the fact we do not have much info regarding the two devices yet, a Mate 30 Pro concept design has surfaced online.
This concept design comes from a YouTube channel called “Concept Creator”, and it’s worth noting that it’s just a figment of imagination backed by some early rumors and leaks, not an actual leak of the device or anything of the sort.
That being said, the phone does look really nice. It is made out of metal and glass, and its back side is curved, similar to what the Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro had to offer. The design of the whole rear-facing camera setup is different here, though. It is circular, and you’ll notice a dual LED flash in the middle, while it is surrounded by actual camera units. It is also worth saying that the whole camera setup does not protrude much on the back, just a little bit.
The phone boasts four cameras on the back, and based on the look of one of the units on the back, that crazy zoom that debuted on the P30 and P30 Pro is included on this imaginary phone as well, of course. The device also included an ultrawide angle camera, in addition to the main sensor. It is also worth noting that the designer imagined a rather interesting pattern on the back of this phone, a bunch of vertical lines.
A loudspeaker is bottom-facing here, and next to it lies a USB Type-C port for charging, while on the other side of the phone’s bottom sits a 3.5mm headphone jack. All the physical keys are placed on the right-hand side of this Huawei Mate 30 Pro setup, including the power / lock, volume up, and volume down buttons.
The designer envisioned this phone to have extremely thin bezels, and a waterdrop notch which actually seems to be taller than the ones we’ve been seeing in the market lately. A SIM card slot is accessible from the top of this phone, while the device includes a curved display, and no “chin” below it.
Both the Huawei Mate 30 and 30 Pro will be fueled by Huawei’s upcoming flagship processor which will either be named the Kirin 985 or 990, and that chip will probably become official before the two phones get announced in Q4 2019.
There is some uncertainty behind these two devices, as Huawei has been developing its own operating system called “Hongmeng OS”, due to the US ban. There is still some uncertainty in the whole deal, so it’s still quite possible that Hongmeng OS will come pre-installed on the Mate 30 series, even though it’s possible that the two devices come with regular Android Q pre-installed, and Huawei’s Emotion UI (EMUI) skin on top of it.
The Huawei Mate 30 Pro is expected to be one of the best camera smartphones in the market, if not the best one, while it is also expected to deliver in a number of other ways. You can expect to see a ton of rumors and leaks regarding the device in the coming months, so stay tuned for that.
