The Huawei Mate 30 Pro unveiling event is just around the corner but we’re already busy with renders and leaks informing us about what’s about to come our way.
After we’ve seen numerous images of the phone in both official-looking renders and hands-on photos, we finally have some more information about some of the specs (but do take them with a grain of salt, as always).
Chinese news outlet ITHome has posted an image of one of the phone stands that will be used in the exhibition areas to display the new device. The stand sheds some light on some of the feature the smartphone will feature.
To begin with, it tells us that the Huawei Mate 30 Pro will have a rear camera setup made out of two 40MP cameras that stand alongside an 8MP telephoto lens and a 3D depth-sensing camera (this is expected to be a Time-of-Flight sensor but it is quite unclear at this time if that is the case).
Now here’s the most interesting part of this leak: the rear camera will have something called an “Ultra High Definition Night Mode” and 7680fps super slow motion video recording. Just in case that doesn’t make a lot of sense, the Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ has 960fps slow-motion.
This frame rate is usually achieved via interpolation which means that duplicate frames will be inserted in a lower frame-rate video. The result is a 960fps video with a number of duplicate frames so it’s unclear right now how Huawei managed to pull off this mammoth of a frame-rate number. It could be that the company decided to just interpolate 120fps or 240fps to reach it or, alternatively that its camera sensor has DRAM embedded in that allows it to reach 960fps which was then interpolated to 7680fps.
Huawei has not faltered so far, camera-wise, so no one will be all that shocked if, indeed, we’re in for a surprise. Most of its impressive camera features will most likely be present only on the Pro variant however.
Other than that, the Huawei Mate Pro will have a Kirin 900 processor under the hood, coupled up with a 4,500mAh battery and allegedly no Google services.
We’ll find out which one of these leaks are true or not tomorrow, during Huawei’s official Mate 30 event.
