Huawei held a launch event, with the theme “Rethink Possibilities,” last October 28, 2019 at The Fifth at Rockwell. The event included the launch of their newest smartphone offerings, the Mate 30 and the Mate 30 Pro, as well as their environmental initiative Project E for E.

Senior Global Product Manager Peter Gauden, TVC director Sid Maderazo, Business Executive GP Reyes, and actor Jericho Rosales all gave their take on the features of the new Mate 30 and the Mate 30 Pro, as follows:

  • The Leica 40 MP Cine Camera, the world’s first dual main camera that supports ultra low-light video up to ISO 51,200, ultra slow-motion video camera shooting at 7,680 fps, and 4K ultra wide angle low-light time-lapse video;
  • Three other cameras, an 8 MP, f/2.4, an 80 mm telephoto, a 40 MP, f/1.8, 18mm ultrawide, and a 3D TOF camera for improved depth-sensing;
  • The OneHop, which enables a seamless experience in the mobile ecosystem from smartphones to PCs and other devices;
  • The Kirin 990 5G, which combines performance, efficiency, and 5G connectivity; and
  • Longer battery life with 4,200 mAh for Mate 30 and 4,500 mAh for the Mate 30 Pro.

They have also announced a pre-order promo wherein one can get the Mate 30 and the Mate 30 Pro with 5,580 PHP worth of freebies. The details are available here.

Another highlight of the event is the Project E for E: Saving Environmental Ecology through Technological Ecosystem. The initiative is a partnership with non-profit organization Save Philippine Seas (SPS) and aims to help with the protection and preservation of natural resources. Huawei has expressed their support towards the SPS project Parrotfishnet, an Internet of Things-powered project that aims to protect the Burias Shoal Marine Sanctuary in Molugan, El Salvador, Misamis Oriental from threats such as poaching, dynamite fishing, and illegal fishing.
