Huawei’s future on the smartphone market has been in limbo since the trade negotiations between China and the United States, but for now, it looks the timeline is back on track. The company announced the launch date of the Huawei Mate 30 series – it is September 19, and the event will take place in Munich, Germany.

The company is saying it will go “full circle”, vaguely suggesting a circular camera setup on the back. Of course, it could also mean other symbolic stuff that comes with the shape of the circle, but since we already spotted some renders and cases, we are pretty sure the Huawei Mate 30 lineup will have first for its kind camera setup on the back.
Specs-wise we don’t know much about the Huawei Mate 30 and Huawei Mate 30 Pro – we expect Kirin 990 chipset that should be announced at IFA 2019, taking place later this month, 6.7” OLED screen for the Pro version and up to 55W charging. Rumors also suggested two 40 MP shooters on the back of the more powerful phone.
Although the OS is expected to be Android Pie or Android 10, we are up for a surprise, since Huawei already introduced Harmony OS as a back-up variant of Google’s platform if the talks between the US and China don’t yield a productive result.
