Huawei unveils P30 series early on their website

Announced in March last year, the Huawei P20 and P20 Pro quickly became some of the most successful smartphones coming out of China. Huawei is about to launch their 2019 successors. A newly web page for the P30 event answers many of our questions about the new flagships.

The by now infamous incontinence of smartphone manufacturers goes on, and the latest leak, originally spotted by well-known mobile maven Evan Blass from Huawei is a big one.

Thus the P30 Pro is confirmed to have a quad camera setup with 40MP main sensor and 10X hybrid zoom and improved low light capacity.

We also now know that you'll be able to view with two of the four cameras simultaneously in a split screen dual-view video mode, showing both a close-up and wide-angle view at the same time.

The leaked event page also unveiled the Huawei Watch GT Active, which will be offered for free with a P30 Pro at Huawei's Singapore event. Is there anything left for Huawei to surprise us with? We'll see at the event on Tuesday, March 26 in Paris.

P30 and P30 Pro in renders and photos

Renders over the past few days has revealed almost everything about the new Huawei smartphones. However, this time you can take a real look at the front panel thanks to these new photos available on the net, taken by a Galaxy S10. From these you can also see an interesting detail: the new flagships of the Chinese manufacturer will have a curved display.

The source is our old acquaintance - leaker Roland Quandt, who has published new renders of the Huawei P30 range coming later this month on WinFuture. We can finally know a lot about the final look of the flagships, but also, again thanks to our colleague, we can take a first look at the complete specs.

Huawei P30

The standard version of the P30 closely follows the form factor of the previous generation. The smartphone has a metal structure enclosed in two glass panels. In this case the display is flat (not curved at the sides) and has a very small notch, Essential PH-1 style. On the back there are 3 cameras, a double LED flash and laser autofocus. There is no fingerprint reader in sight, so it has probably been integrated into the OLED display.

Huawei P30: leaked specifications

  Technical specifications
Display 6,1 inches
Processor Kirin 980
Internal storage 128GB/256GB
Rear cameras

3 rear cameras
(normal, 3x telephoto, wide angle)
Opening f/1.8 - f/2.4

Front camera 24 MP
Battery 4000mAh, 40W recharge
Other Optical fingerprint reader under the display, 3.5mm jack

Huawei P30 Pro

The Pro version of the new Huawei top range will be slightly different. There is a dewdrop notch on the front and an in-display fingerprint reader. Three cameras are visible on the back, flanked by a ToF sensor located under the LED flash. Of these three cameras, the third, located at the bottom of the module, is striking because of its square shape. It would be a telephoto lens with 10x optical zoom similar to that presented by OPPO and exclusive to the P30 Pro. The focal lengths could vary from 16mm (wide angle) to 125mm (telephoto).

Therefore, it seems that the model glimpsed during MWC is not the P30 or P30 Pro after all...

Official launch date

Huawei has announced the official launch date of the Huawei P30, P30 Pro and P30 Lite. On March 26th, the Chinese manufacturer will hold a dedicated event in the French capital. For the occasion, Huawei promises to "rewrite the rules". The video accompanying today's tweet provides some clues: you can imagine the presence of a particularly powerful optical zoom, just like the one OPPO presented at the Mobile World Congress.

What do you think of Huawei's new P-series?

    That indisplay fingerprint reader is slow and inconsistent. Somewhere in my mind there is a little voice that perhaps I should buy P30 Pro. But I know there are issues with Huawei smartphones like diecy EMUI, inconsistent cameras unlike Pixel, poor video recording, poor selfi cameras, lack of headphone jack, just acceptable audio via USB C port and speakers, more fragile due to weaker glass compared to its competitors, no micro SD support, and Kirin 980 overall is like last gen Snapdragon 845 considering weak Mali GPU.
    I think I will go for OnePlus 7, that would be better in case I decide not to buy Sansung Galaxy S10 Plus, which I might not because Exynos variant, the one available to me, is not good compared to Snapdragon variant and is even worst than Kirin 980.
