The Chinese smartphone giant Huawei is currently going through tough times. It got caught in the crossfire of the United States and China trade war as it is currently facing a ban. While the future of Huawei smartphones is currently unsure, it is undoubtedly working on new phones. A new leak has emerged revealing details of the Huawei Mate 30 series smartphones.
The leak has been shared by Twitter user @Rodent950 who claims that Huawei will be launching the Mate 30 series by September 22nd. It means there are still three months to go and considering the usual trend, the event has been reported to be one month earlier.
Huawei will be releasing the HiSilicon Kirin 985 processor with the smartphones. It will be next-gen flagship chipset and a direct successor to last year's Kirin 980 offering. Most details about the chipset are currently unknown but it is expected to be based on the 7nm manufacturing process. It should also be 5G compatible which is next big push in mobile network connectivity.
Lastly, the Huawei Mate 30 series is claimed to run HongMeng OS in China. It is reported to be Huawei's own operating system as an Android alternative. The existence of such an OS has officially been confirmed by the company itself as it said that the OS was being developed to face a situation where they might be banned from using Android altogether. The tipster claims that he has no information on what OS global variants will be running.
But as Huawei is said to launch the devices in September and US has already offered a 90-day reprieve, there is a possibility that the whole situation might resolve in the meantime. Either way, we will keep you updated on all the developments and reports.
