If you’ve been planning on getting a new phone, September is shaping up to be the best time in 2019 to do so — after sending out invites to an event at their California headquarters next Tuesday, Apple pretty much confirmed that they would be announcing the iPhone 11 on the 10th of September.
And if you’re on the Android side of things, it looks like the folks of Huawei have got you covered as well. After months of rumours and speculation, it’s now confirmed that the Mate 30 series will be unveiled on the 19th of September as well.
The news was made official on the Huawei Mobile Twitter account last night, which said that the Chinese tech giant would be “going full circle” in Munich two weeks from now.
The announcement is actually a month earlier than we were expecting, seeing that both the Mate 10 and Mate 20 were released in mid-October in 2017 and 2018 respectively. Not that we’re complaining, though.
Considering that the Huawei’s P30 series remains one of the best smartphone releases of 2019, our hopes are high for Huawei’s second flagship phone. The P30 and its Leica-engineered cameras truly took mobile photography to a whole new level, and the Mate 30 will no doubt continue to improve upon that to widen the gap even further.
Of course, there’s the little issue of the Mate 30 not being able to ship with Google’s Android operating system due to the ongoing US ban. Considering that Huawei already has a backup plan in place, however, it’s highly likely that we’ll see the debut of Harmony OS in smartphone form at the event as well.
We’ll definitely be keeping a close eye on these upcoming releases, so be sure to watch Vulcan Post for coverage on the iPhone 11 and Mate 30. If you’re due for a phone refresh just hold out a week or two longer, because some exciting new options are coming our way very, very soon.
