Huawei Mate 30 series handsets become available for purchase in Europe on November 15
Huawei already announced its new handsets, the Huawei Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro in Europe in September. Even so, neither model was released yet. According to the latest rumors, reportedly coming from
“well-informed sources based in China”, the handsets will soon become available for purchase in the old continent. To be more specific, it seems that November 15 will be the first day customers will be able to buy the Mate 30 series handsets. The starting price of the base model will be €799, and the Mate 30 Pro is priced at €1,099. There is also a 5G version of the latter model, which costs €1,199.
The base model comes with a 6.62-inches OLED display, a dual front-facing camera setup consisting of a 24MP sensor and a 3D TOF camera, and a triple rear camera setup which combines a 40MP main camera with an 8MP telephoto camera and a 16MP ultra-wide sensor. Under its hood, the Huawei Mate 30 hides a powerful Kirin 990 SoC, paired with 6GB or 8GB of RAM and 128GB internal storage. The handset runs Android 10- based EMUI 10 out of the box. As for the other features of the device, they include an in-display fingerprint sensor, Face ID, and a 4,200mAh battery, which supports 40W wired fast charging and 27W wireless fast charging. The handset can be used as a power bank, as it supports reversed wireless charging too.
The Huawei Mate 30 Pro surprisingly comes with a slightly smaller display. The 6.53-inches screen is only a tad smaller than the one of the base model, and the screen-to-body ratio is higher in this case, so the Pro version is overall smaller than the base model. The handset carries the same chipset as the regular Mate 30. The Pro includes 8GB of RAM and will become available with 128GB or 256GB internal storage. The cameras also get a boost on the Mate 30 Pro. The main selfie camera features a 32MP lens, and on the back of the device, there are two 40MP sensors, a wide one and an ultra-wide one, combined with an 8MP telephoto camera and a 3D TOF camera sensor. The battery is also a little larger, it is a 4,500mAh one, and it has the same fast charging capabilities as the one on the base model.
Overall, the Huawei Mate 30 series handsets seem to be quite powerful and impressive. According to the source that leaked the release date, the markets that will soon welcome the handsets are the following: Germany, France, Spain, Italy, the UK, and Switzerland. Normally, other European countries should follow soon too.
