Alongside the Galaxy Note 10, iPhone 11 and Pixel 4, Huawei’s Mate 30 is one of the most anticipated smartphones for 2019.
While Huawei is definitely the defensive right now with its difficulties with the U.S., the Mate series has established a reputation for delivering innovative features and powerful core functionality.
With the likely release date due in a matter of months, there’s already been some Mate 30 leaks and rumors circulating, with more likely to come as the reveal event draws nearer. Read on to find out the latest news and a feature-by-feature breakdown of what we expect to find in the new Huawei phone.
Huawei Mate 30 release date and price
Based on the launches of the Mate 10 and Mate 20, the two previous phones in the series, it’s expected that Huawei will officially reveal the Mate 30 in October 2019. In terms of price, the Mate 20’s list price is £699 for the standard and £899 for the Pro version, so expect a price that is at least equal to that if not a little more.
You can buy the international version of these phones in the U.S. for similar amounts in USD via Amazon, but it’s unlikely you’ll ever be able to purchase these handsets through a U.S. carrier.
Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro
As was the case with the Mate 20, we’re expecting both a standard Mate 30 and a Mate 30 Pro to be available. The Pro will be the more expensive model with all the kit that Huawei can throw at it, while the standard will be substantially the same phone, but with some of the advanced features missing in return for a price cut.
