Huawei’s Mate 30 Pro has been hailed as one of the most innovative smartphones released last year and Huawei’s continuing the momentum by releasing a true 5G variant in the UAE. Boasting powerful 5G capabilities, the Mate 30 Pro is an absolute 5G powerhouse with a blazing fast processor, an iconic design, superb battery life and the best camera system on any smartphone.
If you’re looking to pick up a 5G-enabled smartphone in 2020, then you should seriously consider the Mate 30 Pro 5G, which along with being an impressive handset, supports both 5G architectures making it not only an ideal 5G phone but the king of 5G phones.
Powerhouse performance with 5G that supports all standards
The Huawei Mate 30 Pro 5G is powered by Huawei’s own top-of-the-line Kirin 990 chipset which brings key performance upgrades across the board and packs an integrated 5G modem. At the moment, telecom operators have adopted two mainstream network architectures for the rollout of 5G - Non-standalone (NSA) and Standalone (SA).
The first wave of 5G will be NSA networks that use 4G cell towers with 5G radios to provide 5G signals. This will eventually be switched to SA networks which is the ultimate 5G solution, providing bigger bandwidths, higher network speeds and lower latency.
As 5G rolls out in multiple phases with changing standards, you don’t want to get stuck with a 5G phone that will not evolve. Current smartphones only support NSA 5G networks, the Mate 30 Pro 5G is the only true 5G smartphone that works on both SA (Standalone) and NSA (Non-Standalone) network architectures. You also get dual-SIM 5G+4G support that lets you stay connected even if one SIM is in use.
The Iconic design with smart gesture control
With a single tap, you can connect your phone to your PC via NFC, stream your phone’s screen on the PC and control both devices at the same time.*
The Huawei Mate 30 Pro 5G elevates its already stunning aesthetic by integrating a striking Halo design around its circular camera array on the back. The 5G version also comes in two new exciting variants featuring a plush vegan leather Orange and Emerald Green.
Over on the front there’s a futuristic curved edge-to-edge display with an overflowing Horizon display that does away with side bezels and the 3D sensor in the notch introduces a new way to interact with your phone.
Through AI gesture controls, you can take screenshots by pinching your fingers in front of the phone or scroll through galleries or websites by flicking your finger up and down. If you’re a Windows user, you can make use of the multi-screen collaboration feature to swiftly transfer data between PC and phone or take advantage of multi-screen operation.*

The best smartphone for videography
There’s also something special for slow-mo fans. Where most phones’ slow-mo capabilities max out at 960fps, the Mate 30 Pro takes things to a whole new level with an Ultra Slow-Motion mode that allows users to shoot at a whopping 7,680fps
The Mate 30 Pro 5G features a revolutionary quad-camera setup that takes videography to the next level. The Leica branded lenses include a one of a kind 40MP Cine Camera, a 40MP SuperSensing lens, making it the first dual 40MP setup, along with an 8MP telephoto lens and a 3D depth sensing camera.
Aside from being able to effortlessly shoot 4K video in 60 fps, the Mate 30 Pro 5G gets incredible results in low-light conditions with Ultra Low-Light Video unlike any other phone thanks to its large 1/1.54-inch sensor with an impressive video ISO of 51,200.
Super battery performance
The Mate 30 Pro 5G packs in a gigantic 4,500mAh battery that’s capable of lasting a long time and keeping up with all your 5G need. It comes with TÜV Rheinland certified wired and wireless Huawei SuperCharge Technology. When using wired charging, users get super quick speeds of 40W that can restore almost 40% battery in just 15 minutes.
And the phone is no slog when it comes to wireless charging either, offering blazing wireless charging speeds of up to 27W which restores 25% of the phone’s battery in 15 minutes when using Huawei’s official wireless charging pad.
Keeps your data private and secure
We’ve all experienced the awkwardness of having personal messages show up on our phone’s screen when someone else is nearby. Huawei has a neat solution to overcome that with AI Private View that scans the user’s face and hides messages if there are unidentified faces around.
There’s also dual-biometric authentication on board with an in-screen fingerprint scanner and 3D face unlock to ensure that your phone is safe from unauthorized access. Even better, you can rest easy knowing that your most sensitive data is stored in the most secure part of the chipset separate from the outside Android environment.
The new Huawei Mate 30 Pro 5G does not pre-install Google Mobile Services, and users will be able to download and enjoy the applications from the Huawei AppGallery pre-installed in the device.

You won’t have to wait long to get your hands on the king of 5G phones as the Huawei Mate 30 Pro 5G is expected to hit the shelves later this month.
