Huawei officially launched its new Mate 30 smartphones yesterday but the launch was made without most of the apps usually pre-installed on Android phones due to the problem you currently have with the United States.
With this the new Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro are the first Huawei phones to be launched without Google appsBut they are powered by EMUI 10, which is based on Android 10. However, Huawei said that users will be able to install Google applications themselves if they wish.
The launch of Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro It is the first major launch of the Chinese company since it was blacklisted in the United States, which prohibits you from doing business with US companies and marketing their products.
Therefore, Huawei is prohibited from using the Android version provided by Google and the services it provides by default. The Huawei Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro will not use Google services and applications (Google Play Services), but an alternative that the company has called "Huawei Mobile Services (HMS)."
This alternative allowed Huawei to preload new alternative applications, in addition to allowing users to download applications such as WhatsApp, Facebook or Instagram from the Huawei application store.
As for the characteristics of the Mate 30 Pro, we can find which has a standard design with a large notch and a curved screen on the sides like some recent phones.
This is a new type of screen called «waterfall», This is an even more curved screen than currently proposed, with a curvature going to the back of the case for a reinforced fine effect.
The Mate 30 Pro is available in six total colors, including two green and orange leather options.
Other colors include silver, green, purple, and black. The standard model in the series, the Mate 30, is equipped with the same “super-sensing” camera, as well as a 16-megapixel wide-angle version and an 8-megapixel telephoto lens for portraits.
The displays on both devices are slightly different. The Mate 30 Pro has a 6.53-inch screen that avoids the edges of the device, while the standard Mate 30 has a more traditional flat panel and is slightly larger (6.62 inches).
The phone's notch is wide and contains sensors for facial recognition with an infrared array and a "depth-sensing" 3D camera, in addition to the 32MB selfie camera.
There is a third "gesture sensor" camera in the slot, allowing you to scroll to take a screenshot. Google is also preparing to offer such a feature for the Pixel 4, using a radar instead of a camera. The Mate 30 Pro's "AI Auto Rotate" mode uses the front camera to track your face, ensuring that the screen rotates correctly relative to your face, rather than the ground.
On the back, the phone has four cameras.
- a 40 megapixel (MP) 'super sensing' camera with a larger sensor than normal for a phone. This allows you to capture more light and therefore shoot in low light;
- an 8MP camera with 3x optical zoom, which means that the user can get close to the object they want to photograph without compromising the resolution.
- A 40 MP film camera, dedicated to video. Huawei said it has a wider ratio sensor than the others. The sensor also offers better low-light video sensitivity and slower slow motion, delivering up to 7,680 frames per second;
- a "depth sensing" 3D camera, providing data that can be used to apply a more realistic blur effect to photo and video backgrounds.
While the battery also varies from phone to phone. The Mate 30 Pro has a larger 4.500 mAh battery versus 4.200 mAh for the Mate 30. Both phones can quickly charge up to 40 W with a cable or 27 W in wireless mode.
The Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro are available in 4G and 5G versions of the Kirin chip. The chip is Huawei's first to include a built-in 5G modem. Huawei explained that for the 5G modem, the phone includes 21 antennas in total.
The Huawei Mate 30 It will be available with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage.
