Huawei had a big day this week, announcing the Huawei Mate 40, Huawei Mate 40 Pro, Mate 40 Pro+, and Porsche Design Mate 40 RS. Seems the four new phones were not enough, the company quietly unveiled the fifth phone in its home market in China – the Huawei Mate 30E Pro.
The phone is up for reservation in China, and it is basically identical to the Mate 30 Pro which was announced last year. The only difference is that the Huawei Mate 30E Pro is powered by a new chipset, the Kirin 990E. the chipset is an improved version of the Kirin 990 that made its debut in the Mate 30 Pro.
The Kirin 990E in the Huawei Mate 30E Pro still has two Cortex-A76 performance cores clocked at up to 2.86GHz, but the other six cores get a boost. The additional pair of A76s now go up to 2.36 GHz (up from 2.09 GHz), while the four Cortex-A55s are clocked at 1.95 GHz (up from 1.86 GHz). On the GPU side, we still get a Mali-G76, but with two fewer cores – it’s an MP14 in the 990E, whereas the 990 had an MP16. The Kirin 990E is fabbed on a 7nm+ process.

The Mate 30E Pro will run on EMUI 11, which is still based on Android 10 like EMUI 10. The Huawei Mate 30E Pro release date in China is slated for November 1, 2020. The phone will be available in leather orange and green color versions on top of the glass-clad black, Space Silver, Cosmic Purple, and Emerald Green.
