It’s been quite a while since we heard rumors about the Huawei Mate 30 Pro. The latest comes from a Chinese website — revealing early renders of Huawei’s upcoming flagship phone. However, a leakster with a recently good track record says otherwise.
Huawei Mate 30 Pro Early Renders
According to the Chinese website, the Mate 30 Pro would retain the curved display except for the notch. Instead, there’s a dual-punch-hole selfie camera, à la Samsung Galaxy S10+. On the back reveals quite a weird setup — there’s a quad-camera setup plus an LED flash to make for a V-shaped design. There’s also a huge shadow dominating almost the entire back of the Mate 30 Pro, the video cited it as semi-frosted rear design. To top it off, the renders show the device in several colors — black, red, blue, black, and white.
Almost completely wrong. https://t.co/ZkKkaIMvx7

According to @UniverseIce (via Twitter), the renders are “almost completely wrong”. While he didn’t elaborate, it’s easier to take his side here due to his accurate predictions and leaks regarding several phones, like the Galaxy Note 10 and a new color of the Galaxy S10+. He even said in one of his tweets that “the most creative Samsung smartphone in the second half of 2019 is not the [Galaxy] Fold or Note 10″. In conjunction with that is the recent Samsung patent for rollable displays. Of course, do take note that we are just trying to connect the dots here.
Believe me, the most creative Samsung smartphone in the second half of 2019 is not Fold or Note10, you just have to wait, don’t ask me more.

Going back to the Mate 30 Pro, it’s safe to say that these renders aren’t final. But what we do know is that it will come with the Kirin 985 chipset and 4200mAh battery. The same camera optics found on the P30 Pro will at least arrive on the Mate 30 Pro, too. As for the 90Hz screen refresh rate, that’s unlikely. We all know that Huawei is about innovation and advancement, but we also know that it’s not the type to take a step back (in this case, the battery life) for a faster screen.
