Huawei has just announced the Huawei P30 and the P30 Pro in Paris, with more improved cameras, larger batteries in both the P30 and the P30 Pro and a range of other improvements.

This year on the P30 series of phone, cameras play in the Huawei P30 and its bigger brother Huawei P30 Pro once again starred, where Huawei has felt ever more increases. Instead of two main cameras there when the P30 now equal to three, while the P30 Pro not only by a Mega-zoom should stand out, but also a kind brings fourth camera sensor, to capture the depth information even more effective and extensive.

Huawei P30 Pro

The P30 Pro is the new top model and brings a new OLED display as such, that is in terms of the size of even the Huawei Mate 20 Pro in the shade. Was a quite large with 6.39 inches screen in use, the latter device the diagonal grows well even at 6.47 inches. The resolution on the Huawei P30 Pro is 2340 x 1080 pixels works.

The display edges here, other than in its predecessor, are rounded back, and sits at the top of the screen only a teardrop-shaped “notch” is the P30 Pro, striking. The resolution at least 32-megapixel front-facing camera with F/2.0 aperture32-megapixel with facial recognition. You can use the fingerprint reader installed here directly under the surface of the screen, for both the P30 Pro and the P30, I’ve tested it and its fast.

Also, the Huawei P30 Pro, has the earpiece is missing, so Huawei on the P30 Pro and turns the display itself to vibrate and therefore make it into the speaker.

The cameras of the Huawei P30 Pro are certainly back a highlight. We used equally to three sensors on the back, where the main camera offers a resolution of 40 megapixels again and probably has an optical image stabilizer. The maximum size of the aperture is here F/1.6, extra light can be captured. A new 20-megapixel sensor with F/2.2 aperture, which has a wide-angle lens.

The major feature is the P30 Pro is the massive Zoom camera. The manufacturer uses an art Periscope system. Because the camera sensor by using a Prism significantly further away can sit by the optics, a focal length equivalent is here now reached 125 mm. Huawei realizes hybrid-zoom one 10 x together with advanced software and the data measured by the main sensor. The Zoom camera resolution is specified with eight megapixels, with up to 50 times digital zoom.

The Huawei P30 Pro also that under the dual-LED Flash and the laser auto-focus technology, in addition, a so-called time-of-flight sensor is attached, which three-dimensional captures the space in front of the camera and gathers accurate depth data, as appropriate Effects to enable. The whole thing is similar to Microsoft’s Kinect sensor and can be used basically for purposes such as controlling movement in games.

With the Huawei P30 per the current high-end SoC of Huawei’s in-house CPU forge HiSilicon does its service – the Kirin made with seven nm structure width 980 Octacore with two up to 2.6 GHz faster ARM Cortex-A75-cores, two maximum 1.92 GHz fast further A75 cores and four ARM Cortex-A55 cores, which can reach up to 1.8 GHz. The chip also has a dual NPU calculation and an ARM Mali-G76-GPU.

P30 Pro

The high-end processor is a P30 Pro basically with eight gigabytes of memory coupled, while the internal flash memory is 128, 256 or same 512 gigabytes in size depending on the model. The memory can be expanded if necessary by means of a NanoMemory card, the memory card format itself introduced by Huawei back at the MAte 20 Pro launch in October 2018.

P30 Pro Cases

The P30 Pro has a 4200mAh battery, which is the same battery as the Mate 20 Pro using a 40-Watt power supply within are fully charged by a very short time. Transmitted is ac Wi-Fi in the dual-band operation and via Bluetooth 5.0 as well as NFC, as usual using Gigabit-LTE.

As the operating system is running, of course, Android 9.0 “Pie”, but Huawei adds it’s his customized interface EMUI here coming in version 9.1 to use. With an IP68 certification is given with four colours to choose between “Midnight Black” (Black), “Breathing Crystal” (White), “Aurora” (Green) and “Amber Sunrise” (Orange), using gradients partially restored and reflection effects.

The Huawei P30 Pro is 8.41 millimetres thick and measures beyond 158,0 mm in length and 73.4 mm in width.

Huawei P30

The display of the Huawei P30 has a slightly larger than the previous model (P20) with 6.1-inch. The resolution is 2340 x 1080 pixels on the same relatively high level, but the pixel density is higher something due to the smaller dimensions than the pro model. Also, the manufacturer waives the curved edges, so that here no disturbing reflections occur. Here too there is again an individual “dew drops” notch above the but a normal earpiece is attached.

Huawei P30

The front camera offers at the Huawei P30 also extremely high 32-megapixel resolution and an F/2.0 aperture, so the US figures. The camera unit on the back is again extremely efficiently. The main sensor also uses a resolution of 40 megapixels, but has no image stabilization, and has a slightly smaller with f/1.8 aperture. The angle sensor of the P30 resolves still quite high with 16 megapixels, while also an 8-megapixel camera with f/2.4 aperture is installed. Together the cameras enable zoom a 5 x hybrid, as it has been offered in the last year’s P20 pro model.

The P30 does have a headphone jack, so all there 3.5mm headphone users will be pleased.

Also, the larger battery, which capacity will be ordinary 3650mAh is new at the Huawei P30 in the standard version. For a 6.1-inch Smartphone, this is a decent value, especially since here a quick charge function exists.

P30 Cases

The Huawei P30 is 165 grams in terms of weight the thickness is about 7.57 mm while the unit in addition 149.1 mm long and broad 71.36 millimetres. It turns out so of course something more compact than its larger sister model. Like the P30 Pro, both have a USB type-C 3.1 Gen1 port.

Also, the P30 Pro has a max ISO of an amazing 409,600 first on a smartphone. Also, the 40 MP Super Spectrum camera with new quad bayer RYYB pixel Layout ( red, yellow, yellow, blue) which means ridiculous low light photography with natural colours, a wide angle lens is now 120 degrees.

Unboxing and review will be coming very soon.

Pricing will be £899 for the 8GB/128GB and £1099 8GB/512GB only available in Amber Sunset, with the Huawei P30 will be £699.
