The new Huawei Mate 30 Pro has officially replaced Huawei Mate 20 Pro as Huawei’s flagship phablet. Both handsets bring cutting edge technologies, impressive battery life, new camera capabilities, and better performance. However, the latest Mate 30 Pro offers more features and new capabilities than its predecessor.

The Mate 30 Pro offers an iterative upgrade to the previous version rather than a hardware improvement. The Mate 30 brings a much larger 6.53-inch display that produces a pixel density of over 409ppi, which is pretty much lower compared to Mate 20’s pixel density of 538ppi. Then, there’s the Mate 30’s waterfall display that makes the device feel heftier in the hand. The device’s lightweight also adds to the effect. Overall, the Huawei Mate Pro 30 makes a much better job of providing a slim and light phablet form factor.

In addition to that, the Huawei Mate 30 Pro also excels in the camera setup and image enhancements. The new device brings a new SuperSpectrum RYYB sensor for superior low light capture along with 40-megapixel wide-angle lens, a dedicated TOF sensor for better processing, and a higher-resolution selfie camera.
