The Huawei Mate 30 Pro, might be one of the best smartphones to launch in 2019. The Huawei ban has undoubtedly put a roadblock in front of the company as it was on track to becoming the largest smartphone maker in regards to quarterly shipments and market share.

It’s sure to be an uphill battle from here on, because the company’s image has somewhat been tarnished, at least in North America where it has been trying to make inroads.

There might be a little light at the end of that long tunnel for Huawei.

Recently the U.S eased restrictions, somewhat, by allowing U.S manufacturers to conduct business with the Huawei.

Sadly, the tech giant still isn’t allowed to sell its mobile phones in the United States.

For those of you in other parts of the world that’s a non-issue, as Huawei has been dominating the Asian market for some time with its smartphones, which are excellent devices on their own.

But with that all aside, Huawei does make nice phones.

When I purchased the P20 Pro, I was shockingly surprised. I love the gradient colors, which I thought added a touch of character the phone.

That triple camera setup forced other manufacturers to step up their game.

Now it’s becoming the norm to see multiple camera setups on smartphones.

The P30 Pro built upon its successor with a Leica Quad Camera System with its Super Zoom Lens.

Huawei Mate 30 Leak

Now, this image render posted on Weibo, is probably not what the Mate 30 is going to look like, as it is a render from the leaked backing.

This image shows what looks like a quadruple camera setup, with an LED flash incased in a circular housing.

I think Huawei will go with a similar setup, as the P30 Pro already has something similar, so it would only make sense to include it here.

I’m feeling that design flow a lot more, than what’s supposed to be coming out from Apple’s square, rear camera setup.

Ice Universe, who is a credible source, has already obtained some leaked images of the protective film.

Here you can see the notch blurred out, in a design that kind of resembles Samsung’s upcoming Note 10.

The debate of which manufactures copying each other can go on forever.

The takeaway here is that all of them copy something from each other.

What makes me want to buy the Mate 30 is;

#1 Potential Design with gradient colors.

#2 Specs.

  • In-screen fingerprint sensor
  • 6.3-inch+ display
  • Quad HD+ resolution
  • Kirin 985/990 chipset
  • 6GB RAM (base)
  • 128GB base storage
  • Expandable storage
  • 4200mAh+ battery
  • 55W fast charging

# 3 Price.

We already know these phones aren’t cheap. But for just over $1,000, I want my monies worth.

In Canada, the P30 Pro retails for $1,199 CAD. That’s not bad for a flagship smartphone.

If Huawei can keep the pricing somewhat reasonable, I’d be inclined to buy the Mate 30 Pro when it launches sometime in October.

Huawei’s devices are some of the best. Their laptops are as well.

I’m looking for something a bit different this year from Android.

Spec-wise, most flagship Android phones are the same or at least on par with each other.

You aren’t going to find a slow performing high-end device these days, and much less the same for mid-range devices.

Where I think the Mate 30 Pro will standout is in the design department.

Gradient finishes, in a sleek form factor at a reasonable price, are what I’m looking for in my next flagship smartphone, and I think the Huawei Mate 30 Pro might fit the bill.
