Last week, Huawei announced Harmony OS (HongMeng OS), its own multi-platform operating system. This operating system may be working towards competing with the popular Android operating system.
According to a leakster on Twitter, Huawei is working on making the Mate 30 Lite the first smartphone to run the new OS. However, the regular Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro will stick with Android 10 with EMUI 10 on top.
There were earlier rumours that the Huawei Mate 30 Lite would arrive in July. However, what we eventually got at the time was the Huawei Nova 5i Pro. This means that there is still a chance that we will get the same device under the Mate 30 Lite name. This time, it will come with a different operating system, the Harmony OS.
The leakster revealed in the tweet that the launch will take place in mid-September. This is when Huawei usually introduces its Mate lineup.
We do not yet have the exact details of the Huawei Mate 30 Lite. However, if it will indeed be based on the Huawei Nova 5i Pro, then we have an idea what to expect. It will come with a 6.26″ LCD with punch hole for the selfie camera. It will come with a quadruple-camera setup on the rear. Powered by the Kirin 810 chipset, the device will come with a 4,000mAh battery with 20W fast charging. Note, however, that these are just based on speculations that the Huawei Mate 30 Lite is based on the Huawei Nova 5i Pro.
We will keep you informed as soon as we have more details.
