Alleged Mate 30 spotted at 3C, launch may be delayed

Huawei Mate 30

Two new Huawei models allegedly attributed to the upcoming Huawei Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro have been spotted at China’s China Compulsory Certificate (3C) today. Those model numbers are TAS-AL00 and LIO-AL00 and the same models have previously been listed on TENAA as well, but the listings are incomplete as of now.

From the 3C certification, we can deduce that these are, in the very least, premium Huawei phones since they have a 40W charge rating and the manufacturer is BYD Precision Manufacture Co Ltd and Hong Fu Jin Precision. Huawei has its patented SuperCharge technology that goes upto 44W and this is probably what we’re looking at in today’s listing. It is found on mostly flagship Huawei devices. Rumour has it that the Mate 30 will house a 4200mAh battery and the Mate 30 Pro will have a 4500mAh battery respectively.

Gizchina News of the week

There have been a lot of ups and downs for the Chinese giant after the US trade ban debacle. The company has suffered another setback as South China Morning Post reports that Huawei might have to delay the global release of the handset. That’s because the Mate 30 series will not be able to run Google Services, as confirmed by Google. This is a big issue for the company as Google apps and services are vital for Huawei’s international audience.

Even HarmonyOS, which is in a very new OS from Huawei, may not be able to fill in the gaps and this is very likely the cause of the delay. For now, the launch is expected on September 19th. But that could change soon if Huawei does not get a plan b ready. That said, Huawei has not yet declared an official launch date.
