An image has surfaced online showcasing the glass that will be on the rear of the Huawei Mate 30 Pro, corroborating recent rumors claiming the handset would ship with a penta-lens camera, with the sensors arranged in a circular configuration — as opposed to the periscope layout the firm introduced with the Huawei P30 Pro.
It’s worth noting that while we are unable to verify the authenticity of the leak, it comes courtesy of an esteemed Slashleaks user who has a reliable track record when it comes to this sort of thing, having shared a total of 339 leaks, of which 77% of them (that translates to 260) have been accurate, so it’s somewhat credible.
The design doesn’t seem that far-fetched, either. Mounting five sensors in a vertical configuration would take up a substantial amount of room, with protrusion creating an imbalance in how the device sits on a flat surface; thus the most logical way to arrange five sensors is in a circular setup — like Nokia did with the Nokia 9.
Camera aside, the Huawei Mate 30 Pro is expected to feature Huawei’s upcoming Kirin 985 CPU, which is said to offer a higher clock speed than that of the current flagship Kirin 980; at least 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage; and an almost-all-screen AMOLED display, similar to the one found on the Huawei P30 Pro.
