Huawei P30 (Pro)
High-resolution 6.47 inch OLED
Recent leaks suggest that both the Huawei P30 Pro and the P30 will be equipped with an OLED panel. The screen diagonal of the Huawei P30 Pro is remarkable, at 6.47 inches. Curved display edges visibly round off the display, which has a resolution of 2340 x 1080 pixels, and make it appear almost borderless. The standard model, on the other hand, has a more compact 6.1 inch display, also with a resolution of 2340 x 1080 pixels. Both models have a drop notch in common that surrounds the front camera.
What is striking is the invisible front speaker of the P30 Pro, which most likely indicates a “sound-on-display” solution. The sound is generated by a vibrating, piezoelectric component. An in-display fingerprint scanner ensures more security when unlocking the smartphone. In contrast to its predecessor, unlocking via facial recognition is not done by a 3D sensor, but by the 32 megapixel front camera.
Main camera with up to 4 sensors
On the back, the Huawei P30 presents a main camera with extensive sensors. A 40 megapixel main sensor with f / 1.6 aperture and optical image stabilization ensures razor-sharp images. A 20 megapixel sensor with wide angle and f / 2.2 aperture captures a particularly wide image section and is particularly suitable for group shots and panorama shots. The third sensor in the group is an 8 megapixel sensor. This enables loss-free zooming with up to 7.8x optical magnification and a maximum of 10x hybrid zoom. The standard model, in turn, uses a 40 megapixel main sensor with f / 1.8 aperture but without image stabilization, a 16 megapixel wide-angle sensor and an 8 megapixel hybrid zoom sensor with f / 2.4 aperture.
Both devices are equipped with a laser autofocus and two-color LED flash. A so-called time-of-flight sensor, which only the Pro model uses, records depth data. A three-dimensional spatial image is generated in real time from the collected data, which is particularly useful in AR applications. The front camera has a resolution of 32 megapixels.
Fast on the road with the Kirin 980 SoC
Inside is the Kirin 980 System-on-Chip, which also includes the Huawei Mate 20 Series used. The SoC is manufactured in the 7nm process and uses a unique three-stage architecture. This divides the processor into two particularly fast and two highly efficient Cortex-A76 cores, as well as four Cortex-A55 cores. The Mali-G76 GPU provides a graphical increase in performance. The SoC's dual NPU is responsible for the smartphone's AI tasks. Other hardware features include support for Cat21 LTE, Dual-AC WiFi (802.11ac) and Bluetooth 5.0.
8GB (Pro) or 6GB of RAM ensure smooth multitasking. The data storage is optionally 128GB, 256GB or a whopping 512GB. The data memory can be expanded with the NanoMemory memory card system introduced by Hauwei.
4200 mAh battery and fast charging technology
The Huawei P30 Pro has a 4200 mAh battery, which should bring the user safely through the day. A 40 watt quick charge function charges the battery in a very short time. The battery of the standard model is a bit smaller with only 3650 mAh. NFC is available. The operating system is EMUI 9.1, which is based on Android 9 Pie. An IP68 certification suggests water and dust resistance.
Price and availability
The Huawei P30 Series will be on 26. March presented in Paris. For the prices there is no information yet.
