Huawei has just launched the Mate 30E Pro in China alongside the four Mate 40 series devices.
The new Mate 30 device is pretty much the same as last year’s Mate 30 Pro but instead has a Kirin 990E at the helm. The new chipset is an improved version of the Kirin 990 that debuted alongside the Mate 30 Pro.
The Kirin 990E retains the two Cortex-A76 cores clocked at 2.86GHz but the six other cores get a boost in performance. The additional two A76 cores now go up to 2.36GHz, while the four Cortex-A55s are clocked at 1.95GHz. These were previously at 2.09GHz and 1.86GHz, respectively.
The GPU is still the Mali-G76 but now has two fewer cores with the MP14 from the MP16 of the 990. The Kirin 990E is built on the 7nm+ process.
The Mate 30E Pro will run on EMUI 11 on top of Android 10 which is the same Android version that EMUI 10 ran on.
