The next flagship— Mate 30 Series—  from Huawei is almost here, making itself public on September 19, at a special event in Munich, Germany. There are rumors that the Mate 30 series will include the Mate 30, the Mate 30 Pro, and Mate 30 RS Porsche variants. But recently, a new leak (from @evleaks) surfaced suggesting there might be another new toned-down variant Mate 30 Lite, possibly a global rebranded version of Nova 5i Pro.

And since the phone is basically the same phone under a different name, we can expect the Mate 30 Lite to sport identical specs as Nova 5i Pro.
