Huawei’s new Mate series phones are officially here and as the Pro version stole the show with its magnificent camera features, the standard Huawei Mate 30 didn’t get enough screen time. However, the standard version also includes some new features and is also cheaper than the Pro version. Keep reading to learn more about this phone and the Huawei Mate 30 South Africa price.
Just like last year, it’s the standard version that gets the bigger screen and not the Pro version. This year, the standard Mate 30 comes with a big 6.62-inch screen showing 2340 x 1080 pixels resolution and 389ppi of pixel density. However, the screen-to-body ratio is not quite impressive at 87.9%. It’s not as curvy as the bigger Huawei Mate 30 Pro but the notch is also smaller on the top. It looks similar on the back and there are four different colors to look forward to after the Huawei Mate 30 release date South Africa: Cosmic Purple, Black, Emerald Green and Space Silver. It’s the back of the phone that makes it look different than most of the phones available in the market, a ‘Halo Ring’ design that is inspired from professional cameras.
While all the best camera focused features are included in the Pro version, the standard version got some of the features as well. Users get three cameras on the back: a 40-megapixel SuperSensing camera, an 8-megapixel Telephoto camera and a 16-megapixel Ultra-Wide camera. We will have to wait for the Huawei Mate 30 release date South Africa to find out how it competes with the likes of Apple iPhone 11 Pro and Samsung Galaxy Note 10. It’s missing some cool features like super slow-mo videos or higher ISOs for capturing stunning videos in low light. The front camera is also different compared to the Pro version as it’s a 24-megapixel one.
Under the hood, the standard Huawei Mate 30 comes with the same processor as it’s more expensive brother, the new Kirin 990 chip that should make sure the 4200mAh battery lasts longer while also offering silky smooth performance. The phone supports 40W fast battery charging, 27W fast wireless charging and reverse wireless charging as well. Considering the Huawei Mate 30 South Africa price, what will work as a major deal breaker is the absence of some key Google features. Users will have to depend on Huawei’s own app store as it’s not possible to side load those Google apps like Google Maps, YouTube or Playstore according to Huawei. However, other apps can be installed using APKs that are not linked to Google Services. Some of the other noteworthy features are: Nano Memory card slot, IP53 rating, Android 10 OS, 128GB built-in storage, 6/8GB of RAM, UFS 3.0, Bluetooth 5.1, 3.5mm headphone jack, USB 3.1 and fingerprint sensor under display.
The starting price of the Huawei Mate 30 will be R 12200 . As for the Huawei Mate 30 release date South Africa, it’s expected to show up sometimes in October, 2019. There is the OnePlus 7 Pro and Asus ROG Phone 2 if you are interested to check out some more new phones.
