The Huawei Mate 30 Pro apparently spotted in the wild

If the device that has just been spotted live turns out to be the upcoming Mate 30 Pro, some of the rumors that we heard so far were spot-on. The device sighted in the subway seems to feature a waterfall screen and a square or round main camera setup that was covered by the case — apparently custom-made to hide some key features.

Less than two days ago, well-known leakster Ice universe revealed (click here to check out his Instagram post) a protection case for the upcoming Huawei Mate 30 Pro that confirms the round shape of the quad-camera setup on the back. Now, we also have what seems to be a Huawei Mate 30 Pro that was spotted in the wild covered with a custom case that hides this detail.

The two images that were captured in the subway reveal a device with a waterfall screen and a vertical cutout to the left of the hidden main camera setup. This cutout will probably accommodate a few sensors and/or the LED flash and has the same location on both the live unit and the case leaked by Ice universe. The front of the Huawei Mate 30 Pro sports a wide notch that is needed to fit in a dual selfie shooter (and at least an ambient light sensor, most likely).

The aforementioned subway images surfaced on Weibo without any other technical details than the mention of a 40 MP main camera setup, a piece of information that has been in the rumor mill for a while. The Huawei Mate 30 Pro is expected to use the HiSilicon Kirin 990 chipset, 55 W fast charging, and at least one variant with 5G connectivity. The launch date is not public yet, but since the LIO-AL00 model has just been spotted on TENAA, the Mate 30 Pro should arrive in the coming weeks.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
