#LeakPeek: Huawei Mate 30 Pro to get quad-lens zoom camera
In a couple of months, Apple, Google, and Huawei will release their flagship mobiles to fight for the lion's share in the premium smartphone segment. And going by the latest leak, the Chinese tech giant is fitting a quad-lens zoom camera on the back of its Mate 30 Pro to take on the upgraded iPhone 11 and the completely revamped Pixel 4. Here's more.
According to the alleged Mate 30 Pro render, the phone will house a futuristic looking circular camera setup. The image reveals three lenses and a flash at the edges of the circle, along with a rectangular periscope-like fourth lens in the middle. Notably, LEICA branding is also present, and the 5x optical zoom is etched below the middle lens.
Further, according to a recent report, the Mate 30 Pro will feature a bigger 6.71-inch OLED display as against Mate 20 Pro's 6.39-inch screen. The display will reportedly be curved on all four sides to offer better ergonomics and slimmer bezels. However, it's unclear if the phone would feature a punch hole design or a smaller notch than its predecessor.
Interestingly, Mate 30 Pro is likely to debut the Kirin 985 chipset which is built using a 7nm manufacturing process. The new mobile processor comes with a built-in Balong 5000 modem that'll make the Mate 30 series 5G ready. The phone is also tipped to pack a 4,200mAh battery with support for 55W SuperCharge technology that is currently exclusive to the foldable Mate X.
Considering Huawei launched the Mate 20 Pro in October last year, we expect its successor, the Mate 30 Pro, to go official around the same time this year. Meanwhile, the iPhone 11 is slated to launch in late September and Pixel 4 series in mid-October. Lastly, going by the top-tier hardware, we expect to see a $1,000 price tag on the Huawei flagship.
