13 Sep Huawei Mate 30 Box in New Photo Leak
Waiting for a new phone to launch is both exciting and frustrating. Thankfully the internet has found a great way to keep us all entertaining and that, of course, is in the form of rumours and leaks. Quite where these come from nobody knows but historically they have proven to be pretty accurate and generally we have a good idea of what to expect when the new phone is unveiled.
On September 19th Huawei will launch their new flagship range, the Huawei Mate 30 series and there seems to be quite a lot of leaks out there, including the most recent publication showing pictures of the box that the phone will come in.
One Box, Not Three
Now, in the photo, we are only shown one box, and it is printed with the words Mate 30, so we assume that this is one of three that will be launched and of course there won’t be many differences in the box specs. It is likely we are going to see a Mate 30 Pro and Mate 30 Lite to complete the lineup. The photos show the box looking pretty like those we have seen before, a black finish with Huawei branding.
In the second image the bottom label is shown, now bear in mind this is the Chinese market box so we can’t read everything, but what we have been told is that it confirms the memory size of the middle handset the Huawei Mate 30 as being 128GB with 6BG of RAM. Pretty much what we would expect and of course it is likely there will be a microSD card slot as well for further expansion.
What We Know So Far
To be fair, it is not the most exciting leak and doesn’t give away too much more information, but there has been a lot of chatter surrounding this handset. We have seen render leaks, an alleged meeting of a report and Huawei CEO at the airport where the handset was being tested and a lot of speculation over the actual look, feel and specs of the phone.
What Will It Look Like?
Well if the render images are accurate, then we can expect the Huawei Mate 30 Pro, the largest offering, to be 6.6 inches which puts it on a par with the other flagships from Apple and Samsung. The screen has been branded a waterfall display, and from the image, this is because the sides of the screen continue round almost to the back panel. The bottom has a bezel, and the top has the camera notch which unusually for Huawei seems to be an older style long thin rectangle rather than a water drop or pinhole housing.
The back also seems quite innovative, and this is perhaps because other manufacturers have copied the square camera housing. There are four lenses on the render, but these are encapsulated in a circular housing that is really interesting and different from what we have seen before. Also visible is the charging port, the SIM tray, lots of speakers but no headphone jack.
