Huawei has finally announced the launch of the new Mate 30 Pro 5G on the regional market. Originally announced back in September of 2019, the Huawei Mate 30 saw 7 million units shipped in just 60 days, a staggering 75% increase when compared to the previous Huawei Mate 20 series. This also contributed to the global shipments of both the P and Mate series exceeding 44 million units last year. The flagship smartphone’s 5G variant, Huawei Mate 30 Pro 5G was recently launched with dedicated 5G hardware that puts it in the front line of the 5G race.
A key player in making this happen lies at the heart of the Huawei Mate 30 Pro 5G, the Kirin 990 (5G). The world’s first flagship 5G chipset, the Kirin 990 (5G) SoC comes with a sophisticated design that allows it to have both the processors and 5G baseband in one chip, allowing for a more compact design while also providing exceptional 5G connectivity at lower temperatures and power consumption.
Another feature that makes it stand apart from other 5G devices is its capability to support both 5G Non-Standalone (NSA), which uses existing 4G infrastructure and 5G Standalone (SA) networks, the faster and more stable network. This feature is of key importance to enjoy uninterrupted 5G connectivity since smartphones that only support NSA networks will not work when the eventual transition to SA networks takes place. Thanks to its capability to support both NSA and SA networks, Huawei Mate 30 Pro 5G users don’t have to worry about getting a new device.
Huawei has also incorporated iconic design elements to its flagship 5G king, such as the Halo Ring Design on the back of the phone, complete with an 88-degree Ultra Curve display that gives it an Endless Screen Design. What makes it stand out further is the color variants, giving users the options of a stunning Emerald Green or a Vegan leather Orange variant.
Huawei also works towards developing other user-oriented features that give it an edge when compared to other devices in the market. For example, the AI Gestures features allow users to easily scroll pages by waving their hands instead of physically touching the screen, even pinching to take a screenshot, clearly the next step of smartphone inputs. Users can also enjoy the Intelligent Multi-Screen Collaboration feature, that allows them to wirelessly stream their phone to their laptop and even control it with just a tap. This enhances productivity, especially since users can easily drag and drop between devices.
Apart from its 5G hardware, the Huawei Mate 30 Pro 5G’s super camera hardware also puts it ahead, evident by being scored 123 points in the DxOMark’s review. DxOMark is the photographic ranking system that thoroughly evaluates the image quality of smartphone cameras and being ranked at the top of this system is a testament to the HUAWEI Mate 30 Pro 5G’s camera capabilities.
The Huawei Mate 30 Pro 5G packs a quad-camera system, that houses the world’s first dual 40MP main camera setup including a 40MP SuperSensing and a 40MP Cine Camera. Additionally, the setup is further supported by an 8MP Telephoto lens and a 3D Depth Sensing Camera. The 40MP Cine Camera also supports Ultra Low-light Video of ISO 51,200, the highest sensitivity for mobile videography rivaling professional video cameras, Ultra Slow-motion Video at 7680fps previously only can be captured by professional cameras and 4K Ultra-Wide Angle Low-light Time-lapse Video.
5G connectivity can also heavily task a smartphone’s battery. However, Huawei has taken years of experience as an advantage, creating the perfect solution. Not only does the Huawei Mate 30 Pro 5G come with a 4,500 mAh battery, but it is also designed to charge back up at lightning speeds thanks to the 27W Wireless Huawei Supercharge and 40W Wired HUAWEI Supercharge. Users can also use the improved Huawei Wireless Reverse Charge feature to charge other devices. Huawei has also improved its car chargers, giving users a 40W in-Car Wired charge and 27W In-Car Wireless Charge.
Security-wise, Huawei has built an isolated Trusted Execution Environment (TEE) outside the open Android environment. This allows the storing of personal data such as fingerprints, facial recognition and passwords locally on the most secure part of the chipset itself. An additional innovative feature called AI Private View also blocks out messages when an extra pair of eyes is detected. It is to be noted that the Huawei Mate 30 Pro 5G does not come with Google Mobile Services pre-installed. Users can download and enjoy their favorite apps from the Huawei AppGallery that is pre-installed on the phone.
The Huawei Mate 30 Pro 5G (8GB / 256G) is available in two colours such as Orange and Emerald Green for a price of AED 3899. Preorders start today.
Motorola Launches the Slimmest 5G Smartphone in the UAE
Motorola launched the newest addition to its edge family: the Motorola Edge 30.

Motorola has also given it an eye-catching look, with subtle, jewel-like patterns that shift and change as you tilt the phone from side to side for complexity and depth.
The Motorola edge 30 features a powerful 50MP camera system, an ultra-smooth 144Hz 6.5″ FHD+ OLED display, multidimensional Dolby Atmos sound, and the power-efficient Snapdragon 778G+ 5G Mobile Platform, the new edge device has everything you could want to be packed into a sleek, modern design.

Other camera benefits include being able to capture sharp details in the daytime, and then as night falls, the camera lets in more light by combining every four pixels into one massive ultra pixel. Plus, Optical Image Stabilization (OIS), eliminates unwanted shakes, so you’re set to shoot the best photos in a whole new way. And the brilliance goes beyond photos – you can record HDR10 videos with over a billion shades of colour for more lifelike storytelling than ever before.
Often, camera quality suffers in 3rd party apps like TikTok, WhatsApp, and Instagram, but with the edge 30, Motorola paid special attention to performance in areas like facial rendering, front camera video recording or video chats, and significant noise reduction when capturing still images – making it a content creator’s dream device.
Your favourite shows and games can also come to life thanks to the 6.5″ OLED display with 144Hz refresh rate and HDR10+ that meets DCI-P3 cinematic standards for colour range, brightness, colour accuracy, and contrast level, so you can view everything in over a billion shades of colour. The two large stereo speakers, packed with the multidimensional sound of Dolby Atmos, accompany the screen and will help deliver a more immersive viewing experience.
