Huawei's new Mate 30 Pro is here Without Google Play!

New pretty boy
Looks like we haven't heard the last of Huawei after all!

I mean, it's kind of a "duh" moment for most of us.

The Multi-Billion Dollar tech giant who happens to be the leader in 5G Tech as of now has no reason to bow down and surrender simply because certain people sitting in certain positions decided to ban google services on them.

The new Mate 30 Pro still sees to sell in millions despite lacking Google Services.

But it still runs Android 10, so let’s take a look!

There have been a few noticeable changes in the general design.

The notch is now back and is slightly bigger than what their P-series phones had.

There are no volume buttons to be seen anywhere; more on that later.

There is now a pretty big quad-camera array on the back, yelling for attention.

All these changes and improvements only suggest that Huawei is devoted to their smartphone brand and is confident that they can still win back their place in the smartphone marketplace.

Why else would they be bold enough to target the European market primarily?

The New Cameras:

Like most other smartphones released this year, the primary focus here seems to be the rear cameras.

There’s a 40-megapixel Wide, another 40-megapixel ‘Cine-Camera’ sensor, a 16-megapixel ultra-wide, and an 8-megapixel telephoto sensor.

There’s also an additional 3D TOF Sensor to capture depth information both on the back and front of the phone.

The front also houses the 32-megapixel selfie camera along with a bunch of other motion tracking sensors.

There’s a pretty crazy video night mode on the cameras, which is frankly madness at this point. 

The thing can practically shoot high resolution videos in the dark now!

The Mate 30 Pro can also record Slo-mo at an insane 7680 FPS!

Nope, that’s not a typo!

Everyday activities practically look like they’re still images at that rate.

The New Hardware:

All this insanity is possible because of the new and improved Kirin 990 Chipset alongside 8 gigs of RAM.

There’s also a new 16-core Mali G76 Turbo GPU, so that should help out a fair bit as well!

Huawei’s reputation for making long lasting, big battery phones will be further beefed up, as the Mate 30 Pro houses a bigger 4500 mAh unit with the same 40W fast charging.

They also introduced their new fast wireless chargers for the Mate 30 Pro which can work at 27W

That’s’ Faster than my Galaxy Note’s Wired charging speeds!

That’s Huawei for you; embarrassing the competitors since 2016.

The New Display:

There’s a new buzzword around, or at least there will be for the next few weeks; Horizon display!

With an incredible 88 Degree curvature, this new FHD+ panel stands to impress, if it wasn’t for that darn notch up top.

This new edge is also where the volume controls are now placed. 

You can double tap on the edge to bring up the volume slider and control the volume level by sliding your finger across the edge. 

Cool, when it works..

The New Notch:

The notch is hiding some newer sensors for improved Face ID and also a weird ‘feature’ which nobody ever asked for.

"Shoo..Shoo..Go away notch!"
They are trying something similar to what LG had going on their G8, with the palm gestures and what not.

You can do some hand movements and can control things like the notification shade. I don’t even know want to make of this. We can safely deposit this into the gimmicks bank for now.

Final Thoughts:

Well, those were the key highlights of the new Huawei Mate 30 Pro.

Again, it does not have Google services, but the company has reportedly spent about a Billion Dollars incentivising developers to come onto its own app store to counter out Google in countries where they have prominence, like Europe or even India.

We don’t yet know how well the world will receive the Mate 30 Pro. Here’s hoping we get our beloved overkill camera king back!

Let me know what you think of the company or the Phone in the comments.
