Huawei has just unveiled its highly anticipated flagship, The Huawei Mate 30 series. The launch event also covered Huawei Vision TV, Watch GT 2, FreeBuds 3 and EMUI 10.
Here’s a breakdown of the highlights in the launch:
The Notch Stays
This Leica inspired smartphone consists of a halo ring surrounding the quad camera setup on both Mate 30 and Pro, the design stays similar on both with changes to the display, Mate 30 Pro being one of the first waterfall display after Vivo Nex 3.
The display is 6.62 inches FHD+ (2340×1080) for Mate 30 and 6.53 inches FHD+ (2400×1176) for Mate 30 Pro, both are AMOLED and powered by the new Kirin 990 under the hood, along with a 5G option for both variants.
There will be 6 color options Vegan Leather Forest Green, Vegan Leather Orange, Space Silver, Emerald Green, Cosmic Purple, Black. Battery on Mate 30 is 4200mah and the Pro crams in a 4500mah.

The slow-mo had turned a lot of heads, in the leaks and even more after the release, 7680fps on a mere smartphone is an unexpected surprise, in a time where even 960fps is rare to see, Huawei was able to break barriers with 7680 fps slow-mo.
This might be one of the best Camera Smartphones, edging even on the newly launched iPhone 11 Pro.
Mate 30 is priced at 799 Euros; Mate 30 Pro/5G is priced at 1099/1199 Euros and Mate 30 Pro Porsche Edition is priced at 2095 Euros

The Smartwatch which can last
The biggest dilemma with modern smartwatches is their terrible battery life, but Huawei has tried to get rid of this with their Huawei Watch GT 2.
With HUAWEI’s self-developed wearable chip Kirin A1, the dual-chip design and intelligent power saving technology, it serves you day and night for up to 2 weeks
The Watch is equipped with GPS, 15 workout modes, 50 Meter water resistant and supports underwater heart rate monitoring. It is an ideal fitness oriented smartwatch with super long battery and most smart features one could ask for.
The TV has a lot to offer and brings competition to Xiaomi, OnePlus and the even the big players like Samsung, LG and Sony.
Huawei will offer 65-inch and 75-inch models to start, with 55-inch and 85-inch models coming later. The Huawei TV features Quantum Dot Display, thin metal bezels, and a pop-up camera for video conferencing that lowers into the television when not in use. On TVs, Harmony OS is able to serve as a hub for smart home devices that support the HiLink platform. Huawei has stressed a lot on usage of AI and the IOT integration.
The speaker setup has 8 normal speakers, 1 subwoofer and 1 refractor resulting in a 5.1 Surround Experience.
Huawei is also touting the TV’s AI capabilities, likening it to a “smart speaker with a big screen.” The TV supports voice commands and includes facial recognition and tracking capabilities. Apparently, there’s some AI mode that helps protect the eyes of young viewers — presumably by filtering blue light. The Vision also allows “one-hop projection” from a Huawei smartphone. The TV’s remote has a touchpad and charges over USB-C.
