Little by little, the Huawei Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro are starting to spread outside of China - first Malaysia, now Romania. The good news for Europeans is that there's no Exclusive Ownership Campaign nonsense this time around, you can buy a Mate 30 even if you haven't owned any Huawei phones previously.
As expected, today Huawei followed up its previous global launch event for the Huawei Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro with an unveiling of the models for the Chinese market. The official prices in the company's home country are lower than what was announced internationally, but that's not surprising, because it's usually how things go in the mobile world.
Huawei has received the highest rating from DxOMark for the Huawei Mate 30 Pro’s industry-leading camera system.
Huawei launched its Mate 30 Pro premium smartphone last month, and we got our hands on the new device to test it out.
The Huawei Mate 30 Pro climbed to the top of the DxOMark camera ranking, beating the Galaxy Note10+ by 4 points in the overall score. The still photo score of 131 is the highest yet and is what helped push the phone to the top.
Huawei continues to test the international waters and the Mate 30 Pro will soon land in another country - Singapore. Note that only a few units will be available and then only in a very exclusive fashion. If you want one, you'll have to sign up at the official site and you'll even have to take a quiz about the capabilities of the new flagship.
Huawei CBG South Africa general manager Likun Zhao confirmed that the roll-out of the Mate 30 Pro in South Africa has been postponed.
The Galaxy Note10 led the way with its late-August announcement, Apple put out the iPhone 11s in mid-September, and Huawei followed a week later with the Mate 30 series. We had all three fall season big guns at the office at the same time, and we figured we'd do a quick shootout.
