The Huawei Mate 20 Pro is still a fresh product in the market, but we’ve got some early news on Mate 30. Though the handset is still nine months away from an official announcement, we’ve renders of a case for a smartphone that Huawei has patented. Huawei has issued the patent with the CNIPA (China National Intellectual Property Administration). The published renders first became public on January 1 (first reported by Mobielkopen).
Anyways, Huawei will soon launch the P-series flagship smartphone in H1 of 2019. But, the case doesn’t belong to the P-series. Instead, the symmetry and shape of the back camera make it more compatible with the Mate 30 Pro that will go official in H2. Also, the P-series of smartphones usually gets the rear cameras on the top left corners.
Another reason to consider the case like the one from the Mate 30 Pro is the identical width of the camera window. The only difference is, the window is taller than the one on Mate 20 Pro. We assume that Huawei will use this extra space to house five camera modules along with flash at the sixth position.
Another worth mentioning thing points at the subtle cutout at the forehead of the case. The miniature clip-out is for a slotted in-call speaker. With that said, it makes us believe that Mate 30 Pro will feature a camera hole in the display.
While the Mate 30 Pro is still far away from the official announcement, we will see the P30 earlier. The P30 Pro will feature four cameras. The handset may use a Sony IMX607 sensor as on the cameras on the smartphone.
