Huawei Mate 30 cuts Google out

Android is here to stay on Huawei phones, but the manufacturer has replaced one important service, writes BRYAN TURNER.



Huawei says the Mate 30 Series showcases how aesthetic design fuses with technology. Its features what it calls a Horizon Display, which is similar to Samsung’s Edge display technology, which offers an immersive viewing experience with a curved display. For connectivity, the Kirin 990 5G SoC is the first to integrate processing units and a 5G modem on the same chip using the ultra-thin 7nm process.

A quad-camera includes a new SuperSensing Cine Camera, a dual main camera system designed for improved photographic and videographic results. The devices’ interface is the latest version of Huawei’s EMUI10 skin, which it says offers long-lasting battery life for heavy mobile users and an enhanced user experience.

Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei Consumer Business Group, said: “The Huawei 30 Series unleashes the full potential of the smartphone. Designed to stand out, it challenges convention while delivering an unrivalled user experience. The era of 5G is an opportunity to rethink smartphone technology and the Huawei Mate 30 series is the ultimate expression of what’s possible.”

With a narrower notch design and thinner bezels, the Huawei Mate 30 Pro features the Horizon Display, which curves at an angle of 88 degrees to maximise the display area to provide an edge-to-edge viewing experience.

It dropped the physical volume rocker and introduced a side-touch interaction feature to replace the side volume buttons with virtual keys. This feature also allows users to use the volume key position on either side of the device, and customise the keys. 

On the rear, the square camera array has been replaced with a new ring design of the quad-camera system, surrounded by a metallic halo.

For security, it features 3D Face Unlock, similar to Apple’s Face ID, which projects invisible dots to identify a face. It features an In-Screen Fingerprint sensor to provide higher levels of biometric security and convenience. It also features an Acoustic Display Technology to deliver high-quality audio through a sound emitting display.
