Huawei has just announced a new 5G variant of its recently launched flagship the Huawei Mate 30 Pro. The new variant will not only be available in new colors but will also come with a total of 21 antennas.
Huawei Mate 30 Pro 5G comes with a Kirin 990 5G SoC under the hood like the previously launched variants. The SoC is topped with 8 GB RAM and 128 GB of onboard storage. The SoC comes with a built-in 5G modem, however, the Neural Processing Unit (NPU) has one small and two big cores. These cores are overclocked when compared to the regular Kirin 990.
As far as the smartphone’s connectivity is concerned, it comes with 21 antennas as mentioned. 14 of these are for 5G connectivity which is pretty impressive since most 5G smartphones come with 6 antennas for 5G connectivity. Apart from this, it comes with the usual 5G / 4G / 3G / 2G frequency bands and SA/NSA dual-mode 5G support.
Both the flagship models, Huawei Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro, have been doing pretty well in the local market. Within 5 days of the release, the Chinese Giant had sold over a million units. According to Richard Yu, the sales reached a rate of 100,000 sales per minute within the first three hours of release, despite the fact that these smartphones ship without Google services and applications support.
The new Huawei Mate 30 Pro 5G variant is currently available for sale at a $909 price tag and is being sold in two colors: Vegan Leather Orange and Vegan Leather Forest Green.
