Huawei Mate 30, Mate 30 Pro and more coming to Malaysia on 3 October 2019


The Huawei Malaysia Ecosystem Conference 2019 is coming to Malaysia on 3 October 2019 and with it the Huawei Mate 30 series Malaysia pricing details. This time around there also seems to be an Exclusive Ownership Program for the Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro along with a chance for Malaysian app developers to join in to Huawei’s ecosystem. Previously, it was mentioned that developers could quickly and easily convert their Android apps using the Ark Compiler with various advantages in doing so.

The Huawei Mate 30 series offer the Kirin 990 chipset, 5G connectivity, a new Horizon OLED display with Air-trigger-like side buttons, 40W super charging, 27W wireless supercharge and more. Coming in 8GB RAM + 128GB storage for the Mate 30 and 8GB RAM + 256GB storage for the Mate 30 Pro, prices are expected to start from 3999 Yuan (~RM2351) but nothing has been confirmed just yet so no specific Malaysia pricing details or release dates yet.

Of note are the cameras on the Mate 30 Pro which recently scored 121 on DxOMark, currently the highest score for mobile cameraphones yet. The Mate 30 Pro offers 40MP Ultra Wide Cine F1.8 + 40MP SuperSensing Wide F1.6 + 8MP Telephoto F2.4 ( 3X Optical Zoom, 30X Digital Zoom ) + 3D Depth Sensor quad rear cameras and 32MP F2.0 + 3D Depth Sensor front cameras with an insane 7680 fps slow motion and 4K video recording. The Mate 30 is no slouch either with 16MP Ultra Wide F2.2 + 40MP SuperSensing Wide F1.8 + 8MP Telephoto F2.4 (3X Optical Zoom, 30X Digital Zoom) quad rear cameras and 24MP F2.0 + 3D Depth Sensor front cameras.

We find it interesting that instead of the usual big launch, Huawei have chosen to introduce an Exclusive Ownership Program, indicating that there may be extra services outside the norm for Huawei Mate 30 series buyers. Perhaps there may be services to provide security updates for the EMUI 10 operating system Huawei is using, maybe even after-sale services to maintain Google apps or sanitize your device with a free screen protector like Huawei are currently doing for their Service Day.

The other point of interest for us is Huawei’s mention of the word ecosystem, which indicates that we may see new Huawei devices like a smart home system, VR glasses, maybe even rice cookers or air purifiers, all controlled via Huawei smartphones. What about “Ecosystem for Consumer Privileges”? Does that mean better rewards or after-sales service than what Huawei are offering now?

So, how much do you think these and the Huawei Mate 30 series will cost in Malaysia? We’d expect more affordable prices and value added services if they want to remain competitive, but what do you think? At the very least we expect the Huawei Watch GT 2 to come as well but do let us know in our Facebook page and stay tuned to

Huawei VR Glass going for 2999 yuan (~RM1765), could it be coming to Malaysia in December 2019 too?
