But what software will it run?
As such, much attention will be concentrated at this launch on how Huawei manages to operate in its software around the Google-shaped hole. The firm has already developed its own alternative Play Store and is reportedly working on a third-party developer mapping service API. Also lately, Huawei has disclosed its own operating system, HarmonyOS, but has downplayed its potential as an Android smartphone substitute; the Mate 30 series is still probable to be based on Android open source.
Harmony OS is supposedly an operating system based on the microkernel that is comparable to Google’s Fuchsia OS. Harmony OS will be optimized and gradually adopted over the next three years across a wider spectrum of smart devices, including wearables, Huawei Vision, and vehicle head units.
At the same time, Huawei also made it clear that Harmony OS was not intended to substitute Android on smartphones but is intended to operate with a focus on safety across different systems.
Hardware and features
Aside from software, Huawei’s latest flagship devices all had impressive hardware, and it is probable that the Mate 30 Pro will follow that tradition. The Kirin 990 processor, which Huawei is scheduled to announce at the IFA trade show in Berlin this week, should be used. Unverified leaks show a big circular quad-camera module and a “waterfall” screen with extreme curved edges will be featured in the Mate 30 Pro.
A 6.7-inch AMOLED display with a refresh rate of 90 Hz is anticipated for the Mate 30 Pro. It is said to be carrying triple cameras with 40 MP sensors on the back, providing up to 5x optical zoom and 50x digital zoom. The setup is speculated to be powered by a battery of 4,200 mAh and will come with a 55 W quick-charging adapter.
