Huawei P30 Pro Confirmed to Sport Periscope-style Telephoto Camera
Huawei will be launching its latest P-series flagship smartphones on March 26th in Paris. We have already seen several leaks about the Huawei P30 and Huwaei P30 Pro smartphones. While the Huawei P30 will come with the triple camera setup on the rear, the P30 Pro will be equipped with quad rear cameras. Now, the company’s VP has also confirmed the Pro variant to come with Periscope-style telephoto camera.
At the MWC 2019, OPPO showcased the 10x lossless zoom technology using the same periscope design for the telephoto lens. However, Huawei might beat OPPO to launch the first smartphone with this new camera technology. While the company has confirmed about the 10x zoom, we hope it at least offers what OPPO showcased at the MWC. Huawei will also introduce new low-light camera technology which is mentioned to be better than the software-based technologies like Google’s NightSight.
Talking about the other specifications, both the Huawei P30 devices will be coming with AMOLED displays with waterdrop notch. While the Huawei P30 is expected to sport a 6.1-inch display, the P30 Pro will be coming with a bigger 6.5-inch display. As seen with the Huawei Mate 20 smartphones, the Huawei P30 and P30 Pro will also come powered by 7nm Kirin 980 octa-core processor featuring dual NPU and Mali G76 GPU.
The devices will be running on the latest Android 9.0 Pie out of the box with EMUI skin on top. While the devices will be missing the 3D face unlock, the company might still offer software-based face unlock along with in-display fingerprint scanner. At the MWC 2019, Huawei unveiled the Mate X folding phone with 8GB RAM and 512GB of internal storage for EUR 2,299. It also comes with 5G support and is said to go on sale in the middle of this year.
While there is no confirmation, we also expect the company to launch the 5G variant of the Huawei P30 Pro alongside the regular 4G variant. The complete details of the Huawei P30 and P30 Pro will be unveiled on the launch date. Since the company has launched the Huawei P20 devices in India, the upcoming Huawei P30 devices might also make their way into our country. Stay tuned on PhoneRadar for more details!
