Deepfake: Are these the first official Mate 30 Pro adverts?
The Huawei Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro hype train is well under way, with new alleged renders and leaks popping up online seemingly on a daily basis. All point to the next Mate series having a rounded rear-facing camera housing that contains four sensors and an LED flash.
We are sceptical whether these new images are the real deal considering that they have not been posted by any official Huawei social media account. They do look legit though, complete with Huawei branding and a more symmetrical camera layout. Again, these could just be a more elaborate fan-made render based off the supposed back glass piece that recently circulated online.
Either way, we expect to see a Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro sometime this autumn, with a likely release being September or October considering that Huawei unveiled the Mate 20 series in October last year. The two flagships should feature a Kirin 985 SoC, the latest version of EMUI and potentially comparable camera technology to what we saw in the P30 Pro with a few minor tweaks. Huawei is not scuppered yet, folks.
