Huawei has unveiled its new Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro smartphones with some special sauce camera technology: it can shoot slow-motion video at a I-had-to-triple-check-this-info 7680FPS.
The new camera will have to drop the resolution down to 1280 x 720 to shoot at 7680FPS... but that is still absolutely insane. The new camera can also shoot 12-hour long 4K timelapses (!!!), 960FPS slow-mo video at 1080p, 4K video at 60FPS, and has the ability to add real-time bokeh effects to video.
Huawei is including a 40MP "SuperSensing" camera, a 40MP Ultra-Wide camera, and an 8MP 3x telephoto camera on the regular Mate 30 smartphone, while the higher-end Huawei Mate 30 Pro handset will have even better camera chops. The Mate 30 Pro adds an additional 40MP "Cine Camera" which supports real-time bokeh adjustment and the super-slow-mo 7680FPS.
The new Huawei Mate 30 has a 6.62-inch display with a native resolution of 2340 x 1080, 19.5:9 aspect ratio, and 26.2mm wide notch. The higher-end Mate 30 Pro rolls out with a smaller 6.53-inch display but higher-res 2400 x 1176 resolution, and 18.4:9 aspect ratio.
Huawei's Mate 30 has a 4200mAh battery, while the higher-end Mate 30 Pro bumps the battery up to a 4500mAh unit.
Inside, Huawei is using the new Kirin 990 processor, as well as the first 16-core Mali G76 GPU. We're also looking at the most advanced antenna setup in a smartphone yet, with Huawei packing 21 antennas into the new Mate 30/Pro with 14 of then dedicated to 5G reception.
The new Mate 30/Pro also packs an in-screen fingerprint sensor, wireless charging (as well as reverse wireless charging) and 27W fast-charging (3x quicker than the P30).
