Huawei Mate 30 leaked case shows rectangular rear camera, contradicts earlier renders

“The Huawei Mate 30 leaked case’s design is in line with a Huawei patent for a smartphone case that was filed earlier this year”

While Huawei Mate 30 Pro, the successor to the Mate 20 Pro (review), will be released later this year, leaks regarding the smartphone have already started to emerge. This time around, we’re treated to back cases of the Mate 30 and these paint quite a contradictory picture. Last week, we saw a couple of renders that hinted at a circular cut-out for the rear cameras, which were preceded by other images that showed rectangular cutouts. The latest cases seem to be cementing the fact that the device might feature rectangular rear camera module. 


Interestingly, the design in these cases lines up very well with a Huawei patent of a smartphone case that was granted in January this year. Other than that, we can hardly predict the number of cameras that will be on the upcoming Mate series. The earliest renders hinted at a quad-camera setup while the Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro both had triple cameras. This seems to be a point most leaks agree upon for now. There are also contradictory reports surrounding the fascia of the phone. Some renders have hinted at a pill-shaped punch-hole such as in the Galaxy S10+ (review) while others have shown a more conservative notch design. 

As far as specifications are concerned, the Mate 30 Pro is said to come with a 6.7-inch AMOLED display made by BOE and a 7nm Kirin 985 SoC. There’s also likely going to be a 5G version of the handset. The battery could be rated at 4,200mAh with 55W wired charging and 10W reverse wireless charging as well. The Mate 30 Pro series is expected to launch in October, so there’s no doubt that more leaks will paint a clearer picture as to what to expect from the forthcoming flagship.
