Huawei's Mate 30 Pro Can Charge Faster Using USB Power Delivery 3.0 But Still Keeps to 40W SuperCharge Charging

The Huawei Mate30 Pro is one of the few 5G capable phones sold today which include competing phones like the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G and Xiaomi Mi 9 Pro 5G. The Huawei Mate30 Pro is also one of the first Huawei phones to support USB Power Delivery 3.0 (PD3) fast charging over USB Type-C. The increase of battery capacity to 4500 mAh allows the Huawei Mate30 Pro to be able to reach higher max power charging rates in the 22.5-27W range.

Like the 2018 Huawei Mate20 Pro, the Huawei Mate30 Pro also claims to achieve charging up to 40W using its own proprietary SuperCharge charging scheme. Similarly the Huawei Mate30 Pro also supports reverse wireless charging allowing the phone to wirelessly charge its own Huawei series or other Qi enabled phones such as the Apple iPhone 11 Pro Max and Google Pixel 4 XL as well as being able to be wirelessly charged itself. Unlike 15W Qi wireless charging on the Huawei Mate20 Pro, the Huawei Mate30 Pro can offer faster wireless charging of up to 27W. 

The Huawei Mate30 Pro uses a newer and faster HiSilicon Kirin 990 chipset, Mali-G76 MP16 GPU and Android 10.0 OS as well as up to 512GB RAM memory. Let's see how the Huawei Mate30 Pro looks like after we purchased the phone from a Huawei store recently.

The Huawei Mate30 Pro advertises on the front of its box the Leica brand of SuperSensing Cine cameras used by the phone.

The Huawei Mate30 Pro like many of its Mate Pro series makes use of Huawei's SuperCharge technology that has been certified by Germany based TUV Rheinland for safe charging compliance.

The side of the box highlights the official 5G logo indicating 5G LTE network compliance by the phone. 

The accessories includes a AC power charger, USB Type-A to Type-C cable, Type-C earbuds, plastic phone cover and SIM eject tool.

The The Huawei SuperCharge 40W AC Charger supports 10 watts (5 volts @ 2 amps), 18 watts (9 volts @ 2 amps) and 40 watts (10 volts @ 4 amps) power profiles which are also similar to the Huawei SuperCharge charger shipped with the Mate20 Pro. Note the charger and phone should be connected using the supplied USB Type-A to Type-C cable for fastest charging.

By comparison the Huawei Mate30 Pro has four rear cameras versus three on the Mate20 Pro. The quadruple rear camera setup consists of 40MP (wide), 40MP (ultrawide), 8MP (telephoto) and a new 3D TOF cameras. These Leica SUMMARIT-H branded cameras also came with 4K video capture capability.

The Huawei Mate30 Pro also boasts an additional 3D TOF camera on the front of the phone on top of a 32MP front camera. 

The USB Type-C connector supports USB 3.1 Gen 1 speeds and DisplayPort Alternate Mode along with Huawei's SuperCharge scheme and USB Power Delivery 3.0 technology for rapid charging.

In a similar move to adopting larger smartphone displays as seen on latest phones like the Xiaomi Mi 9 Pro 5G and Samsung Galaxy Note10+, the Huawei Mate30 Pro has also increased its screen size to 6.5 in which comes with Corning Gorilla Glass 6 protection.

Using the USB Power Delivery Compliance C2 Tester from Granite River Labs to run just a subset of the full USB Power Delivery compliance test suite, we can see that the Huawei Mate30 Pro supports 5 watts (5 volts @ 1 amps), 10 watts (5 volts @ 2 amps) and 18 watts (9 volts @ 2 amps) power profiles for charging. Some compliance failures were also observed for this phone.
