As we are nearing the launch of the Huawei Mate 30 Pro, there are more leaks and rumors to cover. Last week, we were greeted with a centered rectangular cut out which suggested a square camera setup on the back. A few days ago, the display of the Huawei Mate 30 Pro was leaked revealing a notch on the top.
This Mate 30 Pro display leak comes courtesy of Weibo and includes a hands-on image of the panel. As it was the case with the Huawei Mate 20 Pro, the Mate 30 Pro has a curved screen. However, this time around, the curve is more prominent.
An earlier rumor suggested that the Mate 30 Pro would come with a punch-hole cutout. However, it seems that Huawei has decided against it and has gone with the more conventional notch on the top, similar to the one found on the Mate 20 Pro. Upon close inspection, we can see that the Mate 30 Pro will have a smaller notch compared to its predecessor while packing in the 3D face unlock technology. However, there is a possibility that the non-pro variant of the Mate 30 will feature a hole-punch and skip the 3D face unlock technology.
The leakster has also published an image of the underside of the Mate 30 Pro display. We can clearly see in the featured image of this article that the phone will include an in-display fingerprint scanner. So, you will have two secure ways of locking the phone; either with 3D face scanner or with an under-display fingerprint scanner.
In regards to panel, the Mate 30 Pro is likely to come with 6.71-inch QHD+ AMOLED display. As it was the case with the OnePlus 7 Pro, the Mate 30 Pro too will have a 90Hz panel which will lead to faster refresh rate compared to other phones like the iPhone XS Max and the Samsung Galaxy S10 trio.
While it isn’t clear on who will manufacture the panel for Huawei, there are rumors that the company is in talks with Samsung and BOE for the production of the AMOLED panel. It will be interesting to see if the Mate 30 Pro will have a display on par with the upcoming Note 10.
The Mate 30 Pro is rumored to come with Kirin 985 SoC, 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. In addition to that, the battery is going to be larger, with rumors pointing towards a 4200mAh cell. Lastly, the phone will come with 55W charging, with Power delivery and support for up to 10W reverse wireless charging.
Huawei is expected to launch the Mate 30 Pro this fall. While the launch date isn’t confirmed, by the look of the recent leaks, the launch shouldn’t be very far. We expect the phone to be launched around the same timeframe when the next generation of iPhones will be unveiled.
