Despite being a victim of the ongoing US-China trade war, Huawei has released its second flagship series of the year – Mate 30 Pro and Mate 30.
It’s worth noting that even though these phones run on the latest Android 10, it’s the open-source version, which means that Google Play services will not come pre-installed on these phones. However, Huawei Mobile Services take over from here and are claimed to provide all the required functionalities. Huawei has invested $1 billion in this project.
Huawei Mate 30 Pro
- The new Mate 30 Pro brings two 40MP cameras – primary wide-angle sensor with f/1.6 and a new ultra-wide-angle camera with f/1.8. There are two more cameras at the rear. The third camera sensor is an 8MP module with 3x optical zoom and 5x hybrid zoom.
- The slow-mo videos on the Mate 30 Pro can go up to a record-setting 7,680 fps @ 720p! Otherwise, the phone can record up to 4K @ 60 fps and for low light videos, it ISO setting can go up to 52,000.
- The display on the Huawei Mate 30 Pro 6.53-inch OLED unit with crazy-curved edges at 88-degrees. Just like the Vivo Nex 3, the display here is so curved that volume rocker and power buttons are now virtual.
- The display also has a rather large notch for the 3D face unlocking hardware as well as the phone’s 32MP selfie shooter.
- The battery capacity here is 4,500mAh and it comes with 40W fast charging. Also, the wireless charging support now goes up to 27W, which is quite fast indeed.
- Powering the Mate 30 Pro is the new flagship 5G-capable Kirin 990 SoC with 8GB of RAM and 128/ 256GB of internal storage as standard. You can read more about the Kirin 990 here.
Huawei Mate 30
- The standard Mate 30 uses a 6.62-inch flat OLED screen, which has a much smaller notch when compared to the Pro model. The selfie shooter here has 24MP resolution.
- The primary rear and the telephoto cameras on the Mate 30 are carried over from the Pro model, however, the ultra-wide-angle module is an inferior 16MP unit with an aperture of f/2.2.
- Powering this phone is also the new Kirin 990, but here, it’s the 4G version of its chipset, not the 5G one. The RAM remains at 8GB, but the internal storage is only 128GB – the 256GB storage variant isn’t offered here.
Battery capacity on the Mate 30 is 4,200mAh with the exact same wired and wireless charging speeds as the Mate 30 Pro.
- In terms of ruggedness, the standard Mate 30 is IP53-rated, but the Pro model has a more robust IP68-certification.
- The Nokia 7.2 mid-range smartphone has been launched in India at Rs 18,599-19,599, depending on the storage option chosen. It will be available to buy from September 23.

- The Nokia 7.2 features an HDR10-enabled 6.3-inch FHD+ LCD display with a small notch which houses its 20P f/2.0 selfie shooter.
- Powering this phone is a Snapdragon 660 SoC, which seems quite dated when you consider that the competition uses the new Snapdragon 675/710/712 chipsets. There are two variants on offer – 4GB/ 64GB and 6GB/ 64GB.
- The battery capacity on the Nokia 7.2 is 3,500mAh. However, even though this phone charged via a USB-C port, there is no fast charging on offer and the device comes bundled with a 10W charger.
