New Chinese manufacturer's flagship devices bring with them impressive hardware, but also face unexpected challenges due to the American boycott
Two things are at the center of the launch of the Mate 30 Pro - the new square back camera featuring a pair of megapixel 40 sensors, for the first time in the mobile world, and the US-China trade war that forces Huawei to replace the Play Store and its popular services of Google In alternative services.
Let's start with what's good and interesting: The standard Mate 30 will provide consumers with an 6.62-inch OLED (flat) screen with 2,340 × 1,080 pixels resolution, chip Kirin 990 Updated Octagon with Mali G76MP16 Enlarged Graphic Core Dynamic Memory of 6GB or 8GB, Volume storage Fast internal UFS 3.0 128GB or 256GB standard, earphone slot, speakers Stereo, Fingerprint scanner Built-in under the screen, basic IP53 protection against water and dust and a handsome 4,200mAh battery with fast 40 watts fast wired and 27 watts fast wireless addition.
The Senior Mate 30 Pro will offer users a convex OLED screen on both its 6.53-inch and non-standard 2,400 resolution, 1,176GB LPDDR4X memory, 8GB or 128GB fast storage, IPXNX protection chip Built-in NFC, 802.11ac dual-channel Wi-Fi connectivity, up-to-date 5.1 Bluetooth connectivity and built-in 4,500mAh battery with fast charging at up to 40 watts in wired or up to 27 watts based on charger radio Dedicated.
Although almost identical in design for the Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro, including a black four-hole 'wheel' for the rear center photography sensors - the Mate 30 will only offer a triangular main photo array, with one of those holes remaining essentially three or more The others consist of a large 40 megapixel unit, an 8 megapixel sensor for close-up of 3 with an optical stabilization array, and a wide-angle 16 camera.
The Mate 30 Pro takes things to another level of course, with one main 40 optical-stabilized unit and a second 40 wide-angle camera (with electronic stabilization mechanism) and the ability to shoot Video Ultra slow motion with 7,680 frame rate per second (as opposed to up to 960 frame rate per second on most other sophisticated smartphones, including the standard Mate 30). The third rear sensor is an 8 megapixel close-up sensor and the fourth is a three-dimensional depth sensor - where the front of the model has a defect with two additional cameras: an 32 megapixel selfie unit and another three-dimensional depth sensor used among others advanced.
Both devices will run the latest 10 Android system Google Straight out of the box, with Huawei's own EMUI 10 interface - but the boycott imposed several months ago and significantly limiting its possible technological collaborations with various American companies means that the device does not contain the well-known popular apps from home Google, Such as Gmail, Chrome browser, service Google Maps and YouTube, nor does it contain theGoogle Play Store That will allow their download.
Huawei will replace the missing Play Store with its own application store called Huawei App Gallery, though it's not clear how many of the popular Android services and names are actually there - when it's clear that the specific apps of Google That we mentioned in the previous paragraph will not be there.
Users will still be able to install applications, including the Play Store itself, independently and unofficially from APK files, and Huawei will also allow easy booting of bootloader devices for easy third-party operating system switching that may include Everything we know and love from home Google By default - but it's pretty clear that these are relatively advanced users' actions, with most popular consumers prefer not to mess around in this area and may forego the Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro just for that reason.
Huawei guarantees that they will be able to get the apps back Google And you-Play Store To the Mate 30 via a simple remote update if and when the US limit is removed, but as of now, neither side in the geopolitical equation seems ready to give up and the China-US trade war is not going to end any time soon. This unusual situation for actual Mate models sales - but no surprise if we find out that the big deal has fallen and the major manufacturer's path to full separation from Google and Android later (and beyond the Harmony OS itself developed based on Android infrastructure) is already inevitable.
The Mate 30 will be offered in European countries at the price of 800 Euro (including extra tax) for a model with 8GB of dynamic memory and 128GB for storage, while the Mate 30 Pro will be offered at a price of 1,100 Euro for a model with 8GB of RAM And 256GB of storage, While the Mate 30 Pro 5G model which should also provide increased processing power will cost 1,200 euros for those volumes memory. When the pair land in the country, it seems that prices above NIS 3,200 and NIS 4,300 respectively can be expected.
Both models will be available in a variety of six shades - though two will be exclusively for the5G Which we probably won't accept in Israel
