Huawei launches Mate 30, Mate 30 Pro: Price, features and more

Trade war update: Huawei Mate 30 won’t ship to Europe Huawei Mate 30 series launch LIVE: Mate 30 Pro with the new "halo ring" design announced

Despite the United States government issuing two temporary 90-day reprieves for Huawei, they only cover existing products, not new ones. And yes, Huawei and Leica are still partners with the cameras' engineering.

Huawei directly challenged Apple's new iPhone 11 with its new Mate 30 smartphone range on Thursday, highlighting its own apps brand while sidestepping the critical issue of access to Google services.

Inside, the Huawei Mate 30 Pro features the company's recently announced Kirin 990 processor which promises real-world performance well in excess of anything else on the market for the foreseeable future. "But we have a huge advantage with the phone itself".

During the event, Huawei focused on how compact their newest devices are, while showcasing a larger screen. The Huawei Mate 30 packs an 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, and will start at 799 Euros (Rs 62,900).

The sides of the 6.53-inch OLED panel curves to the edges, giving the illusion of a near borderless display. With a newly introduced Cinematic Color system and DCI-P3 HDR, it's a display to be reckoned with, on paper at least.

The phone has a 4,500mAh battery which supports 27W wireless fast charging and 40W wired fast charging. At 198g vs the iPhone 11 Pro Max's 226g, it's also a manageable weight too. Huawei and Porsche Design are obviously adamant that very few people will buy this luxury product and have priced it at 2095 Euro.

Furthermore that ultra-wide ought to negate some of the more extreme corner/edge softness associated with such lenses by being not quite as super-wide - plus in the Mate it's a "Cine Camera" sensor with some special benefits, which we'll detail in a moment.

There's also gesture controls like automatic rotating, or "private view" which hides your notifications when others peek over your shoulder, via the new front gesture sensor. It also has a smaller 4200mAh battery, versus the 4500mAh cell found on the Mate 30 Pro; and is certified IP53 for water-resistance, while the Pro is rated IP68 for dust and water.

"Huawei has Apple soundly beaten when it comes to form factor design but even these beautiful-looking devices are going to struggle to see any volume without the Google ecosystem", analyst Richard Windsor said in a note before the launch.

Want more silly numbers? And we already know how well Huawei devices can handle night scenes and low-light conditions, thanks to the P30 Pro.

Aside from their newest mobile phone, Huawei has also launched a new smartwatch called the Huawei Watch GT 2.

The elephant in the room?

The back of the Mate 30 Pro has a circular camera array. So you won't be able to access Gmail, YouTube or even the Google Play Store easily on this phone - and Huawei apparently believes this will limit the appeal of its device in certain markets.

Huawei did load the phone up with plenty of smart features that could be compensating for the glaring omission.

It's now unclear if the leather version will cost more than other variants of the Mate 30 Pro.
