Phone leak season really is in full swing.
The latest regards Huawei’s Mate 30 Pro. Sure, it’s future in the West may still have a big question mark next to it thanks to the U.S. but we are still extremely here for any and all scraps of potential info.
We're over four months out from when Google will most likely unveil the Google Pixel 4. The leaks and rumours have already begun, so Google took control of the narrative and released their own image in a baller power move. Here's everything we know so far.Read more
Update July 8:
Two new renders bring the previous rectangle array for the cameras into dispute.
These new renders reveal a circular rear lens setup, which honestly look a whole lot nicer.
While hard specs for the lenses weren’t revealed, ‘5x optical zoom’ can be seen written on the chassis. This implies that the telephoto lens may be the same 8MP one that was introduced in the P30 series earlier this year.

We're taking a short break from the multitude of Samsung Galaxy Note 10 leaks to bring you something from Huawei. It looks like the Mate 30 Pro could be moving away from the square rear camera aesthetic, opting for a more unique look for its quad lens setup.Read more
The latest Mate 30 leaks come in the form of renders that have appeared on Chinese website IT Home.
They reveal a rectangle rear bump for the four rear cameras which will allegedly be capable of 5x optical zoom and 50x digital zoom, just like the P30 Pro. The previous gen Mate 20 Pro had a square home for these as well as only three cameras.
On the front of the device appears to have an almost bezel-free display. In fact, it seems to be taking a leaf out of Samsung’s book with a hole-punch cut out for the dual front-facing cameras.
Black, red and blue colour options also appear to be on the table – though they seem a little less fancy than some of the colour schemes we have seen on recent Huawei flagships.
We don’t know much yet but there have been rumours of a 6.7-inch QHD+ screen WITH A 90hZ refresh rate, a 4,200mAH battery with 55W SuperCharge functionality and Huawei’s own Kirin 990 processor.
The latter will be a step up from the Kirin 980 processor that Huawei debuted at IFA last August.
As we always say when it comes to leaks and rumours – always keep a degree of scepticism about you. We probably won’t know any hard facts until the Mate 30 drops, which based on previous release cycles will probably be in October.
We’ll keep you posted on any other leaks or rumours that surface between now and then.
Last month Huawei laptops disappeared from the Australian and U.S. Microsoft stores without an official explanation. In fact, the company remained completely quiet regarding the removal. What was clear was that it was a reaction to Donald Trump's executive order that banned U.S. companies from supplying equipment to overseas companies that had been declared a national security risk. Well, now they've reappeared. And Microsoft has finally broken its silence.Read more
