The phone comes in blue, black, green and purple. The design at the back is dominated by the big circular camera module, phone’s best attribute.
The phone measures 158.1x73.1x8.8 mm and weighs 198 grams. The basic version comes with 8GB RAM and 128GB storage and there is also an 8GB/256GB version. The screen measures at 6.53-inch and packs an FHD 2400x1776 pixel DCI-P3 display. The speakers pack sound screen technology.
The battery size is impressive 4500 mAh and as previously leaked it supports 40W wired and 27W wireless charging. The phone is IP68 water resistant and it is powered by Huawei's own Kirin 980 SoC.
The new Kirin is the company’s second-generation A76 based SoC with slightly higher clocks and with a beefed up GPU and AI performance for both big and little tasks.
The camera on the Mate 30 is its biggest selling point.
