Huawei launched their flagship Mate 30 series phones that consist of the Huawei Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro in Munich, Germany last month. They’ve fast tracked the release of their next-generation phone and they’re launching both of their flagship phones in Malaysia today at the inaugural Huawei Malaysia Ecosystem Conference in Malaysia.
To sweeten the pot, they’re also announcing a Huawei Exclusive Ownership Campaign for the Mate 30 Pro that allows loyalist Mate series owners to get the phone first along with free gifts worth RM1,155. Here’s a recap on what the Mate 30 series has to offer, how much they cost and more details on the Huawei Exclusive Ownership Campaign to purchase the Mate 30 Pro.

The most immediately recognisable feature of the new phones is their iconic ring-shaped design around the rear camera array and both the Huawei Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro are powered by the Kirin 990 processor as well as the their latest, most powerful camera arrays.
The Huawei Mate 30 Pro hosts a 6.53-inch Full HD+ Horizon Flex display that has a sharp 88-degree curve and virtual side keys that ditch the hitherto traditional side volume rocker side buttons while the 6.63-inch FHD+ Rigid OLED display though it still retains the usual volume rocker side buttons.
The Mate 30 comes with a SuperSensing Triple Camera array which consists of a 40-MP SuperSending Camera, a 16-MP Ultra Wide-angle camera and an 8-MP telephoto camera. The Mate 30 Pro comes with a more powerful quad camera array that consists of a primary 40-MP Cine Camera, a secondary 40-MP SuperSending Camera, an 8-MP Telephoto camera and a fourth 3D depth sensing camera.
