New Huawei Cellular Phones For 5G
Released September 19, 2019
Huawei’s newest models released today are the Mate 30 5G and the Mate 30 Pro. Huawei is the world’s third largest producer of cell phones, only surpassed by Samsung and Apple. Huawei’s newest 5G phones were introduced by Richard Yu Chengdong in Munich. This is a laudable feat, given the uneasy atmosphere currently experienced between the United States and China.
Some hindrances this tense international political situation causes are that, at this point, Huawei has to sell these phones with an open-source version of the Android operating system. U.S. restrictions placed on Huawei will not allow the most recent version of Android to be used. Huawei is about to release its own operating system called HarmonyOS, but it was not ready for release at the time these newest Huawei 5G phones were ready for sale.
Other features affected by the sanctions and restrictions are that the phones will not include Google apps such as Google Maps, Playstore, Gmail or YouTube. These will be replaced by Huawei’s Android-based interface, EMUI, which will apparently allow downloads of some apps like Whatsapp, Instagram and Facebook. How this works out remains to be seen.
The dimensions of the phones will be similar. The Mate 30 5G is 6.62 inches long. Its screen resolution is slightly lower than the Mate 30 Pro and it features a camera system, a “dark mode” for subduing backgrounds for easier viewing and reverse wireless charging. It is powered by Huawei’s Kirin 990 processor which gives the phone its 5G capability. Its back cameras are 16 MP, 40 MP and 8 MP. It can also be used as a charging pad for compatible devices. It comes in 4 colors – black, silver, green and purple with an optional vegan leather finish. It has a 4,200 mAh battery.
The Mate 30 Pro 5G is only slightly smaller than the Mate 30, measuring only 6.53 inches but it is the more technologically loaded version. It boasts a curved “Horizon Display” OLED display screen, excellent screen clarity, and its quad camera system has a 40MP ultra-wide cine camera, a 40MP super-sensing wide camera, an 8MP telephoto lens and a 3D depth-sensing camera. The speaker is built into the screen. Volume is controlled by tapping and sliding your finger on the screen. It comes in a variety of colors, finishes and textures. It has a 4,500 mAh battery. In its 5G version, it will also have an internal 5G modem.
Both phones will be available in Asia and Europe as early as October 2019 and possibly in the U.K. at a later date. At the present time, due to the economic conflict between the U.S. and China, don’t look for them to be found in the States any time soon.
