The 5 keys of the new Huawei Mate 30 3The presentation of the new Huawei Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro has already ended, and we have been able to test them live. If we ignore the fact that the new models of the brand will not have Google applications or Google Play, the truth is that the Chinese firm has launched two round phones. The camera is the main argument, but there are many others such as design, power or charging technology. Of all these aspects, There are five that have caught our attention and of which we have to talk long and hard.

Slow motion video recording at 7,680 FPS and ISO 51,200

Neither 120, nor 240, not even at 960 FPS. Nothing more and nothing less than 7,680 FPS, which makes Huawei's proposal the best exponent of today in slow motion video. The feature is limited, of course, to the Pro model, given the dependence of the latter on SuperSensing Cine Camera, the dual camera technology that integrates the phone.

  

The second novelty related to the camera that has caught our attention has to do with the ISO level in videos: until 51,200. With this, we will achieve a dynamic range never seen on a phone to date. The ISO of Mate 30, meanwhile, reaches the ridiculous figure of 409,600, although in this case it is applicable only in photos. We will have to wait for the tests to see if it is a software forced ISO.

Optical zoom up to 30x

It is not a novelty within Huawei but it is within the Mate range. In this case, P30 Pro is equalized and implemented in the two variants of Mate 30, since both have the same 8 megapixel telephoto sensor.

30 increases in digital, 5 in hybrid and 3 in optical, with a range that reaches up to 45 magnification if we take the ultra wide angle sensor as a reference.

Wireless fast charging up to 27 W

With the introduction of the new charging system of the Huawei Mate 30 and 30 Pro, the Asian giant has set another record. In addition to integrating a 40 W cable load, the Mate 30 and 30 Pro have wireless charging of no less than 27 W, again the most advanced load today.

What Huawei has not confirmed is whether this power is applicable to the reversible wireless charging system that the terminals have, although everything points to yes.

Goodbye volume buttons, hello touch panel?

The third novelty of the duo captained by the Mate 30 Pro has to do with the design, and more specifically with the volume buttons.

With the latest iteration of the Mate series the highest range model discard the volume buttons completely and say hello to a panel with touch functions located on the sides of the phone whose functions are limited to simulating that of the original buttons.

The company has not placed much emphasis on this system, but has assured that it allows the configuration of its functions, so that we can change the classic volume buttons for a camera or zoom button For the pictures. Since it is located on both sides of the phone, its use is feasible in both left and right handed.

Forget about WhatsApp and YouTube (but not from Android)

There could not be a lack of the perhaps loudest absence of the presentation of the terminals in Munich. It was something that was expected and that the user Alex Barredo has confirmed in a recent tweet: WhatsApp will not be compatible with the new models. The reason? Google services. By relying on the Google platform, WhatsApp, YouTube, or any other application whose system falls on Google Services will work, even if we force the installation from an external APK file.

At the moment, the ball is on the roof of Huawei to make services compatible with EMUI 10, either through an application in AppGallery or through a package. The good news is that we have Android, and more specifically with Android 10.
