Triple Leica Camera Huawei Mate 30 Pro Revealed to the World at Last


Things aren’t getting any easier for Huawei in the wake of China and the United States’ ongoing trade war, a consequence of which could see smartphone maker cut off from the Google Android ecosystem.

Mate 30 Pro from Huawei.

Yet, even so, the company is still showing off its next-generation wares and the Mate 30 Pro is a nice, adequate distraction from all of those other issues. The fact that it comes with a trio of cameras sporting Leica-branded technology is just one of the many things that makes the Mate 30 Pro a worthy competitor to the recently released iPhone 11.

One unique feature about the Mate 30 that stands out from the competition in an interesting way is that the company has chosen to deploy a circular ring that it calls the “Halo Ring” for its cameras as opposed to the square block others are using. The Halo Ring has three cameras with four sensors total. In the Mate 30, the first is a 40MP f/1.8 aperture, the second a 16MP ultra-wide with an f/2.2 aperture, and a telephoto camera with 8MP and a f/2.4 aperture as well as a laser for focusing. In the Mate 30 Pro, the main camera has f/1.6 aperture, a stabilized 40MP ultra-wide at f/1.8, and a 3D depth sensing Time of Flight sensor instead of a laser. If you ask us, the Mate 30 Pro is a pretty significant upgrade over the regular version.

Other capabilities include a 12-hour long 4K timelapse ability, real-time bokeh in video, 960 frames per second slow motion FullHD 1080 resolution video as well as 4K/60p, too.

As for whether the phone will be allowed into the Android ecosystem, time will tell but our bets are on things clearing up sometime soon.
