Chinese smartphone giant Huawei’s next flagship — the Mate 30 Pro — is likely to come with display with a refresh rate of 90Hz, like that of OnePlus 7 Pro, according to early renders of the smartphone.
The next iteration in the Mate series is also expected to sport dual punch hole selfie cameras.
Meanwhile, alleged renders of the Mate 30 Pro have surfaced, revealing a phone with a curved edges of its display and with a punch hole in the upper-left corner to accommodate two cameras, the GSMArena reported on Saturday.
At the rear, the smartphone is expected to have a quad camera setup placed in the center with an LED flash in “V” formation.
This camera system is said to offer 5x optical zoom and 50x digital zoom.
Huawei’s Mate 20 Pro was launched in India in November 2018. It supported 3D Face Unlock and in-display fingerprint sensor.
As US President Donald Trump decided to “looked at” exempting Apple from China tariff, the US Department of Justice exempted US companies, including Microsoft, from exporting and transfer of items to Huawei and its non-US affiliates for 90 days.
The US Department of Commerce in May put Huawei on its Entity List over the so-called “national security concerns.”
In a fresh statement, the US Department of Commerce has said that “The Temporary General License extension will allow carriers to continue to service customers in some of the most remote areas of the United States who would otherwise be left in the dark.
“The Department will continue to rigorously monitor sensitive technology exports to ensure that our innovations are not harnessed by those who would threaten our national security,” said Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross.
A Microsoft spokesperson confirmed this to Fortune.
“On November 20th, the US Department of Commerce granted Microsoft’s request for a license to export mass-market software to Huawei. We appreciate the department’s action in response to our request”, the spokesperson was quoted as saying.
Huawei was added to the Entity List after the Department of Justice concluded that the company is engaged in activities that are contrary to US national security or foreign policy interests, including “alleged violations of the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (IEEPA), conspiracy to violate IEEPA by providing prohibited financial services to Iran, and obstruction of justice in connection with the investigation of those alleged violations of US sanctions, among other illicit activities”.
