  • Huawei’s Next Flagship Phone Will Feature 10x Hybrid Zoom

Now we have new leaked images of the P30 Pro, but this time it comes with a new version of the Huawei Watch.

Before the phone was even launched, Huawei sparked some controversy by using DSLR photos (again) to advertise the P30's camera capability.

The European Commission is poised to urge EU countries to share more data to tackle cybersecurity risks related to the next generation of mobile technology, or 5G, but will ignore US calls to ban Huawei, people familiar with the matter said last week.

The Huawei P30 is priced at €799 and that gets you 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage.

We have only had a limited time with the P30 Pro so far, but Huawei has kept the same native camera app as we've seen before in the P20 Pro and the Mate 20 Pro.

"We're going to completely rewrite the rules of smartphone photography, and we can do this because we own the complete ecosystem within the smartphone".

Both the P30 and P30 Pro will come running EMUI 9.1 that's built on top of Android Pie. You can elect to leave Artificial Intelligence switched on and let the phone tweak settings or output depending on what it detects in front of it.

The Huawei P30 Pro features a 6.47-inch full-HD+ (1080x2340 pixels) OLED screen with 19.5:9 aspect ratio, whereas the P30 comes with 6.1-inch full-HD+ (1080x2340 pixels) OLED display with 19.5:9 aspect ratio.

Similar camera technology was displayed by one of Huawei's Chinese rivals, OPPO, at MWC. Inside, the device also packs the Kirin 980 processor and 8GB of RAM, but storage now tops out at 256GB.


The device also has a 4,400 mAh battery, in-built fingerprint scanner, a USB-C charging port with 40W supercharging. Alongside the P30 Pro, Huawei will also unveil the P30 which will feature a triple camera setup offering 5x zoom.

Huawei says it has also added a graphene film cooling system to manage the heat on both smartphones.

Huawei P30 Pro will reportedly feature four Leica-branded cameras at the back, a combination of 40MP "SuperSpectrum Sensor" primary camera, an ultra wide-angle sensor, a 10X zoom periscope lens, and a ToF sensor.

If you still needed a reason to spend money on a compact camera, it would have been for zoom reach, as even the best smartphone cameras could not provide usable zoom image quality beyond a 5x factor.

Additionally, the new product also supports faster wireless charging at up to 15W, meaning your phone should power up more rapidly on a compatible bank.

Huawei P30 will feature the same camera setup as the P30 Pro except for the ToF sensor.

When is the Huawei P30 release date? This year also sees the introduction of a "dewdrop" notch - this sits in the middle of the top of the screen and is created to use as little as possible of the screen space. Both phones also have a 2.5cm super macro mode that allows you to capture close up images with incredible details. Huawei is pushing its dual-NPU to its limits by using two of the rear cameras on board to record videos simultaneously. The company claims that while the phone received an overall score of 112, its video performance got 97 scores and photography achieved 119 scores.

Huawei consumer business group CEO Richard Yu posted a photo of the moon on his Weibo account weeks before Tuesday's launch, with the blurred watermark hinting at the P30 series. The earbuds are claimed to deliver four hours of playback with just five minutes of charge and are created to provide 18 hours of continuous playback. It comes with IP68 rating which means that is water and dust proof.
