Huawei Mate 30 Pro iFixit teardown shows independent component replacement and hard to replace glasses



Famous teardown specialist iFixit has disassembled the Huawei Mate 30 Pro to give us a complete look at what this flagship’s inside architecture and components.


The Horizon display of Mate 30 Pro is curved at 88-degree on the edges with zero margins between the display and the frame.

The display is heavily glued from all sides and needs heat and some efforts from an opener. Under the hood, the display hooked up to the motherboard with a single connector.


The motherboard is L-shaped to make use of the space inside the architecture coupled with ICs, wireless receivers, Dot projector, microphone, SoC, storage, RAM, Wi-Fi module, NFC controller and more.

Beneath the motherboard, there is a copper plate running down the left of the frame. This is similar to the Mate 20 X 5G’s liquid cooling system.


Huawei Mate 30 Pro packs with a 4500mAh battery that is tagged with orange rip-and-pull tabs with instruction of replacement.


Huawei Mate 30 Pro comes with its revolutionary quad-camera setup and all of these cameras are placed in a single camera module.

On the front side, it has a dual-camera module including a 32MP selfie cam + 2.4MP gesture camera and a separate camera module for the 3D depth sensor.


Huawei Mate 30 Pro uses display vibration to create sound – replacing the traditional earpiece speaker. It looks like the tiny circular LRA vibration motor from Mates past has been upgraded to a rectangular taptic engine-style buzzer.

Ifixit mentioned that Almost every component of Huawei Mate 30 Pro is modular and can be replaced independently.

However, the phone is glued-down front and back glass that extends a bigger risk of breakage while making all repairs more difficult and lengthy.

iFixit’s final score for Huawei Mate 30 Pro is 5 out of 10 points, The higher the score, the easier it is to repair. Please visit to check the complete teardown report.
