Upcoming Huawei Products Guide: 2019
Huawei is said to be working on a number of new products that are scheduled to hit the shelves by the end of 2019 — the most notable of which are the Huawei Mate X, Huawei Mate 30, Huawei Mate 30 Pro and the Huawei MediaPad M6 Pro.
Huawei Mate X
Announced at MWC 2019, the Huawei Mate X is Huawei’s first foldable smartphone. And, as you can imagine, it won’t come cheap with the handset set to retail for around $2600 when it hits the shelves in September, after a short delay.
Under the hood, there’s a HilSilicon Kirin 980 CPU that’s fused with 8GB of RAM and 512GB of storage to deliver desktop-level performance on the move. There’s also a massive 4500mAh cell, which should see the unit through a fair few hours of use.
Flip the Mate X over and you’re greeted by a quad-camera — made up of a 40MP (f/1.8) wide, a 16MP (f/2.2) ultra-wide, an 8MP (f/2.4) telephoto and an Tine-of-Flight (ToF) sensor, though the specification of the latter remains unknown.
As for the screen itself, it’s an AMOLED panel that measures in at 6.6-inches when folded in its sedentary state and has a resolution of 1148 x 2480. That expands to 8-inches, and the resolution increases to 2200 x 2480, when unfolded all the way.
Huawei Mate 30 and Huawei Mate 30 Pro
The Huawei Mate 30 and Huawei Mate 30 Pro are currently undergoing extensive testing, according to Huawei’s Malaysian Product Manager Bruce Lee and will launch in September or October; although he was unable to provide a specific date.
That’s in line with what we’ve seen from Huawei before — it typically launches a camera-centric P Series flagship in the first half of the year, later superseding it with a more well-rounded Mate Series handset sometime in the second half.
In terms of what to expect, not a whole lot is known about the Huawei Mate 30 and Huawei Mate 30 Pro right now, though the Mate Series usually introduces a larger screen, a more powerful processor and a ever-so-slightly bigger battery.
Huawei Mate 30 5G
Huawei is said to be working on a 5G-enabled model of the Huawei Mate 30 and Huawei Mate 30 Pro, which is scheduled to hit the shelves a short while after the duo debut in either September or October, a brand representative told Huawei Hub.
Huawei MediaPad M6 Pro
The Huawei MediaPad M6 Pro was first uncovered in a batch of code that makes Huawei’s former state-of-the-art Kirin 970 CPU work with the other hardware it needs to function at the start of March, hinting that it’s on track for a 2019 release.
It was originally believed that the Huawei MediaPad M6 Pro would be announced alongside the Huawei P30 and Huawei P30 Pro on March 26, but that wasn’t the case — with the most recent rumours now claiming the launch will occur in April.
That seems feasible seeing as the Huawei MediaPad M5 Pro hit the shelves in April 2018, and Huawei, being a brand of habit, would look to keep the release date of its successor as close to that as possible — though it could always throw a curve ball.
Huawei x Gentle Monster Eyewear
Huawei showcased its first set of so-called Smart Eyewear in the form of a collaboration with Gentle Monster, alongside the Huawei P30 on March 26, with the Huawei x Gentle Monster Collection scheduled to launch in June or July.
It’s unclear what features Huawei’s Smart Eyewear, which is IP67 dust- and water-resistant, will offer aside from the facility to participate in a call and interact with a digital assistant using the unit’s integrated microphone and speaker setup.
Upcoming Huawei Products Guide: 2020
Information surrounding Huawei’s ventures in 2020 is sparse, though a reliable source informed Huawei Hub that a Huawei P40 and Huawei P40 Pro are on the cards. They also added that it’s likely the firm will refresh the Huawei Mate Series.
Huawei P40 and Huawei P40 Pro
Huawei was so impressed with the initial success of the Huawei P30 and Huawei P30 Pro, which outsold the Huawei P20 and Huawei P20 Pro in China in a mere 24-hours, that it’s renewed it for another iteration, a trusted tipster told Huawei Hub.
There’s no word surrounding what new features the successor will bring to the table. All we know is that Huawei is sold on the Huawei P40 and Huawei P40 Pro branding, and that it’s looking to offer 5G as standard on both variants in all major markets.
