Huawei is expected to launch the Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro on 19th September in Munich, Germany. The company has been in a lot of trouble lately but that hasn’t stopped it from working on new devices.

The device will be Huawei’s new flagship and will be powered by the latest Kirin 990 SoC. Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro, however, won’t come with Google Services as Google is not allowed to have business with Huawei. The device will come with Android as it’s an open-source OS. The latest leak from veteran smartphone insider Evleaks has revealed that Mate 30 Pro will have a notch on the front. Huawei will also be putting a massive camera module on the back which will house four lenses. The leak also confirms the waterfall design and a red coloured button which looks like the power button. Another image also confirms the absence of the 3.5mm headphone jack.

Evleaks has also shared another tweet which shows the Mate 30 Pro Porsche Design edition. Huawei did launch the Porsche Design Mate 20 RS last year and plans to continue the same this year as well. The device will come with the same specs as the Mate 30 Pro but will have better design and aesthetics.

Even with the best in class camera, Huawei still has an uphill battle in front of them. The company has been facing issues since the start of the year, and recently Google confirmed that Huawei Mate 30 won’t have access to Google’s services. While Huawei and other Chinese brands have sold phones in China with Google’s services, it’s hard to imagine a global smartphone without Google’s services. The good thing is, Huawei still has access to Android since it’s open-source and is free.

That said, it will be interesting to see how Huawei markets the Mate 30 on a global stage without Google’s services including the absence of Play Store.
