There is no way to confirm that these two models are indeed Huawei‘s upcoming Mate series. The speculation does point at Mate series being certified in China. The TENAA listing does not giveaway anything beyond the model number of these devices. However, these are official listings and should be updated with specifications and device images soon. The model numbers – LIOAL00 and TAS-AL00 – bear similarity to the model numbers of Huawei Mate 20 series. This suggests that these devices could be the Mate 30 series and debut soon.
According to Huawei Central, the two devices have also stopped by Bluetooth SIG for certification. The TENAA listing confirms that these devices run Android and support dual-SIM dual standby. There is also support for TD-LTE/FDD-LTE/TD-SCDMA/WCDMA/cdma2000/CDMA1X/GSM standard. The leaks so far point at Huawei Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro will use Kirin 990 SoC based on the new 7nm EUV process. They are also tipped to feature a 90Hz display similar to the one seen on OnePlus 7 Pro.
