The Huawei Mate 30 Pro is Huawei’s next major flagship, and by all accounts the device will be rather revolutionary, breaking new ground with both its edge to edge waterfall screen and cameras.
Now we have some more details regarding the camera which suggests the device may have 2 40 megapixel camera sensors with an additional 8-megapixel periscope zoom camera.
I told you a few rumors about Mate 30 pro camera, IMO this is more possible.

The news appears to be corroborated by reliable leaker Ice Universe who posted pictures of the sensors:
There seems to be a lot of people who don't know how big the gap is. I'll draw a picture to tell you that, in fact, Note10 has no chance of beating Mate30 Pro in terms of camera hardware. pic.twitter.com/f8W2kSTLqk

The larger sensors are notable because simply increasing resolution without increasing sensor size tends to lead to poor light sensitivity and therefore poorer pictures. The images suggest Huawei is taking the old Nokia Lumia 1020 approach of having a large high-resolution sensor for best picture quality.
The Huawei Mate 30 is clearly intended to be a specs monster, and when it arrives it is expected to be powered by the HiSilicon Kirin 985 chipset with an integrated 5G modem, 55W fast-charging support and 10W wireless reverse charging.
The device is expected to hit the market sometime this fall. Will the news convince any of our readers to jump ship from Samsung? Let us know below.
