A set of Mate 30 Lite live-photos is doing the rounds, showing a punch-hole display, a capacitive fingerprint scanner and quad rear-facing cameras. The Mate 30 Lite will be sold as the Nova 5i Pro in China.

The first set of live photos of the Mate 30 Lite have appeared online, which Huawei will sell as the Nova 5i Pro in China. The photos, posted on Weibo, corroborate with a recent TENAA listing, with both having a Mate 20 series style rear-facing camera array and a capacitive fingerprint scanner. The device appears to have four rear-facing sensors though, with the LED flash moved to the right of the camera housing.

The leaked photos also show the Mate 30 Lite as having a punch-hole display, which contradicts the notched design we saw from an alleged Mate 30 Lite screen protector. The photographed device apparently has a 6.26-inch display and a 32 MP front-facing camera, which are bordered by what look like reasonably thin bezels.

Huawei is also rumoured to include a 48 MP primary rear-facing camera that it will complement with an 8 MP sensor along with two 2 MP sensors. The device has a textured back glass finish like the Mate 20 Pro but forgoes an in-screen fingerprint scanner as demonstrated by the photos below. The recent TENAA listing also confirmed that the Mate 30 Lite will come with a Kirin 810 SoC, a 3,900 mAh battery and a choice between 6 GB or 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB or 256 GB of storage. There is no word yet on when Huawei will unveil the Mate 30 series but expect it to do so in Fall.
