The Huawei P30 Pro can bring you more closer to the action than any other phone in the world, all thanks toits 8MP periscope zoom camera which reaches a focal length of 125mm. Other feature like Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) helps keep photos looking sharp and videos smooth. Huawei and Leica also upgraded the two cameras with exclusive features. Read on to see some otherkey features, full specification and price of the Huawei P30 Pro.
Huawei P30 Pro Features
With the cameras of the Huawei P30 Pro, Sony provided a custom 40MP sensor with a RYYB colour filter arrays – Yellow takes the spot of Green for even better low light performance (Huawei was already a leader in this field). The maximum ISO is now double what the Huawei Mate 20 Pro could pull off and is further helped by the brighter f/1.6 aperture and OIS.
The Huawei P30 Pro sports a 20MP ultra-wide angle camera (16mm) with autofocus, as well as a ToF sensor. This is used for multi-layer depth of field effect, making for more realistic bokeh. Hybrid zoom is back and it can go up to 10x (you can push this to 50x with digital zoom).
The front has seen a major redesign as well. The 6.47” AMOLED screen features an in-display fingerprint reader that should perform better than the one in the Mate 20 Pro. The screen resolution is 1080p+.
The screen actually pulls triple duty as it also acts as the earpiece. This is second-gen tech that produces a deeper sound and there’s less sound leakage. The interesting fact is that the whole screen functions as an earpiece, so you can put your ear anywhere. However, this setup means no stereo speakers. To make up for it, Huawei added a larger bottom-firing speaker.
The notch has been reduced to teardrop size. It sports a high-resolution 32MP selfie camera with improved bokeh rendering, however, the 3D face scanning hardware had to be dropped.
The Huawei P30 Pro is powered by the Kirin 980 chipset with heavy duty cooling. The memory configurations are: 6GB/8GB of RAM and up to 512GB storage. This is expandable via the new Nano memory cards. This also means you will have to ditch your second SIM for an external memory card.
The Huawei P30 Pro also comes with Huawei’s best charging technology. This means 40W Super Charge for the 4200mAh battery, and also 15W fast wireless charging and reveres wireless charging. The P30 Pro is built on a metal frame sandwiched between panes of glass. It’s water resistant (IP68) and comes in several attractive gradient colors.
