Huawei’s Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro already have been officially available for just a few months now, though that’s not really going to stop the rumor mill from churning out some of the details of their successor. The obviously named Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro may not be out for some time, though we are already getting a glimpse at the devices and some of it’s features all thanks to these newly leaked 3D renders.
These renders show off the cheaper Mate 30, which gives us a look at the base model of the pair of phones and also everything that Huawei will be building off of. There are also some pretty obvious things here as well, like the trending waterdrop notch, then a triple camera system on the back, then a gradient finish which Huawei’s been popularizing recently.
But what’s also interesting is the lack of fingerprint sensor on the rear of the smartphone, which seems to suggest that Huawei will be utilizing the in-display fingerprint scanner for this set of flagships. So, we might see the phone drop some of the facial recognition technology from the Mate 20, though, it mainly won’t all fit into the smaller notch.
There’s also a Pixel-esque colored powered button on the side, and you will also notice a USB C port at the bottom and a headphone jack as well. Rumors are also suggesting that the main camera in the three camera system will be a 38MP Sony sensor capable of 5x optical zoom, so this could take some killer pictures.
Other rumored details also include an in-house Kirin 980 processor on board, and up to 256GB of storage and 8GB’s of RAM, then Android Pie with EMUI 9.0, which should be a pretty good device from Huawei this year.
