After Huawei P30, company now working on Mate 30

No Comments

Now that the Huawei P30 Pro and P30 are official, it seems the company is wasting no time on its next flagship duo for the year. This is expected to be called the Huawei Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro. At a press briefing in Malaysia, a Huawei official confirmed that the Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro (Review) successors are in testing and the phones could launch in September or October.

The Huawei official did not share any further details on the Huawei Mate 20 Pro and Mate 20, but some early rumours suggest that the duo could launch with the upcoming Kirin 985 SoC. This SoC will be a minor bump in clock speeds for improved performance over the current flagship Kirin 980 chip. It is expected to be manufactured on TSMC’s 7nm EUV process.

Huawei CEO Richard Yu has revealed in an interview with Digital Trends that the Mate 30 will likely come with 5G support. “We are considering to put 5G on the next Mate series,” the CEO said upon being asked about the Huawei P30 phones not coming with 5G.

The design of the upcoming Mate 20 series is still a mystery. Some early renders based on a patent suggest that Huawei will more or less retain the square-shaped matrix camera setup from the Mate 20 Pro. But the size of the camera module could be longer to accomodate more cameras. So it is possible that the Mate 30 Pro will offer a quad camera system like the P30 Pro with a possible inclusion of a Periscope zoom camera for 5x or even 10x optical zoom. Some rumours also say that Huawei may add five cameras on the back of the Mate 20 Pro, which seems unlikely but then again we do have the Nokia 9 PureView now.

Now that the Mate 30 Pro and Mate 30 are officially in the works, you can expect to see more reports on their design and hardware to crop up over the next few months. The successors to the Mate 20 Pro and Mate 20 could launch by October, and it will be interesting to see how Huawei plans to top the cameras of the P30 Pro and P30.

An intelligent 360-degree eye for your home

Security is a major concern for all of us. While most residential societies have been forced to implement a CCTV network, the cameras can only spot incidents and cover areas that are on the outside. In a fast-paced world today, and with almost every household having working parents or partners, keeping an eye on the nanny or house help back at home is almost impossible. Installing CCTV cameras at home is one solution, but setting up the CCTV network at home is not as simple.

To make home security cameras simpler, IP cameras were first launched years ago, but implementing them too needed an engineer to setup a complete network at home, connecting it to the internet and giving out remote access to the owner, which was painstaking and expensive. With internet-based cameras today, things are even better and easier. Moreover, these cameras can be installed by almost anyone without the need of tech knowledge.


Infosys saw maximum rejections of H-1B extensions

Indian IT companies were the worst affected in 2018 due to Trump administration’s revised rules for H-1B visa extension.

According to a report in the Economic Times, TCS, Infosys and Cognizant saw the maximum rejection of H-1B extension applications as revised rules favoured American technology firms.

According to the ET report, Bengaluru-based Infosys saw 2,042 rejections, followed by TCS at 1,744. US-headquartered Cognizant, which has a majority of its workforce in India, saw 3,548 rejections during 2018, highest for any company. These numbers were released by Centre for Immigration Studies, a US think tank, after an analysis of the H-1B data, the business daily said.

Six Indian companies — TCS, Infosys, Wipro, Cognizant, and the US arms of Tech Mahindra and HCL Technologies — accounted for nearly two-thirds of the rejections among the top 30 companies, the publication mentioned citing the think tank, which analysed data put out by US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).

The above six firms got just 16%, or 2,145, H-1B work permits, less than the 2,399 visas that only Amazon bagged in 2018. Cognizant, TCS, Infosys and Wipro together saw 7,933 H-1B rejections while top 30 tech firms, including Indian IT companies, saw 13,177 rejections, the business daily mentioned.

It may be noted that H-1B visas, which are used mainly by technology companies to send their employees to work in US, are initially given for three years with the option of an extension for a similar term.

US-based tech firms, such as Microsoft, Amazon and Apple, increased their H-1B workforce during the year, while net reductions were imposed on the big Indian firms, such as Cognizant, Tata and Infosys, the Centre for Immigration Studies said in its study that was put out on March 6.
