Huawei Mate 30 front panel hints at a bigger notch

Ro, 10 September 2019

A Weibo post just surfaced, showing the front panel and a screen protector for the upcoming Huawei Mate 30. Leaks so far have mostly focused on the Pro version, which will retain its large notch, but now we get to learn a bit about the more affordable flagship.

According to the post and the two images, the notch on the top of the display is considerably smaller than the one on the Mate 30 Pro, yet a lot bigger than on the regular Mate 20 from last year.

This means that all the components required for the advanced facial recognition feature probably won't fit there, so why the extra size? Perhaps Huawei plans to equip the Mate 30 with a dual front camera, or it's got another surprise up its sleeve.

The Huawei Mate 30 duo is going official on September 19 so we'll know what it's about soon enough.
