What you need to know

Headlines this week will be dominated by the Galaxy Note 10 as Samsung unveils its latest flagship, with the phone rumored to retain the same 12MP primary camera as the Galaxy S10 series. That may not be enough for Samsung, however, as a new leak by the ever-reliable ice Universe suggests Huawei is planning on putting two 40 MP sensors on the back of the Mate 30 Pro.
The tweet suggests the phone will feature a 40MP 1/1.7-inch sensor — the same as the main RYYB sensor on the P30 Pro — with a secondary 40MP 1/1.55-inch sensor that doubles up as a wide-angle lens:

The tweet lines up with an earlier leak from the end of last month, which detailed the two 40MP modules joined by an 8MP telephoto lens that delivers 5x optical zoom. Huawei is also said to be rolling out a Cine Lens feature for videos, with both 40MP modules featuring the mode.

With the P30 Pro, Huawei has shown that it is able to pull ahead of Samsung when it comes to mobile photography, and it looks like that trend will continue with the Mate 30 Pro. The device is slated to make its debut sometime in October, so we'll undoubtedly hear a lot more about the hardware and features on offer in the coming weeks and months.

The Galaxy Note 20 is the best and worst phone Samsung has ever made
The Galaxy Note 20 is a frustrating device, offering specs that don't line-up with its $1000 price. Depending on how you look at it, it's both one of the best and worst phones we've seen from Samsung in a long time.
