As with all previous Mate flagships, lenses are provided by Leica, and it looks like the main camera will also feature 5X optical zoom. The high-resolution render also reveals Leica Vario-Summilux-H 1:1.6-3.4/16-125mm ASPH specs and the return of the emerald green color option. No sign of fingerprint sensor on the back, so an in-display implementation looks to be the case.

It looks like Huawei is once again able to buy components from U.S.-based companies, so the Chinese phone maker should be able to launch most of the highly-anticipated models on schedule, except, of course, for the Mate X that has been postponed for September. The Mate 30 is now expected to be released this October with a host of premium features, and, according to a new render leaked on Weibo, the flagship will feature a circular rear quad-cam setup with Leica optics.

Unfortunately, the Mate 30 will not include 10X zoom lenses like the OPPO Reno models, but the 5X optical zoom unveiled by the leaked render is still nothing to scoff at. Additionally, the render shows that the lenses have Leica Vario-Summilux-H 1:1.6-3.4/16-125mm ASPH specs. No fingerprint scanner on the back means that this feature should get an in-display implementation. As far as colors are concerned, the emerald green option from the Mate 20 Pro seems to be back.

Rumor has it that the Mate 30 will also come with a massive 6.71-inch AMOLED display capable of 90 Hz refresh rates, and the flagship is most likely going to be powered by the upcoming Kirin 985 SoC. The Mate 30 should also be 5G-ready and run the new Android Q OS, plus possibly include a 4,200 mAh battery with 55 W fast charging option.

I stepped into the wonderous IT&C world when I was around 7. I was instantly fascinated by computerized graphics, be them from games or 3D applications like 3D Max. I like to keep myself up to date with all the new technologies that get released at an ever increasing rate these days. I'm also an avid SciFi reader, an astrophysics aficionado and, as of late, a crypto geek.
