Tech Giant Huawei Unveils P30 Pro Smartphone Series

Huawei launched its new P30 smartphone alongside a new set of wireless headphones on Tuesday, marking the Chinese tech giant’s latest challenge to Xiaomi and Apple.

The company touted the phone’s high-end camera features, with a more advanced model — the P30 Pro — with a quad-camera setup made in partnership with German firm Leica.

The quad camera consists of a primary 40-megapixel lens, a wide-angle lens, a telephoto lens capable of 50x digital zoom, and an additional so-called “time-of-flight” camera to capture a blurred effect in parts of pictures.

Huawei boasted the phone’s ability to take pictures in darkly-light environments. A new light sensor registers yellow pixels instead of green to absorb more light.

It’s a step from the previous P20 Pro with a triple-camera system.

Another feature the company introduces with the new phone is dual-view video, which lets users put two cameras to work simultaneously when recording clips.

The new device is the latest in Huawei’s P series, typically costing less than its flagship Mate range.

Huawei P30 Pro Price

Huawei said the P30 will have a starting price of about 799 euros, or $900, while the P30 Pro will cost 999 euros. For reference, its most recently announced premium-tier phone, the foldable Mate X, is set to come with an eye-watering 2,299 euro price tag.

The P30 Pro has a 6.47-inch display, while its less pricey counterpart has a smaller 6.1-inch screen. The phones also come with the in-screen fingerprint sensor in Huawei’s Mate 20 and Samsung’s Galaxy S10.

The phone also comes equipped with Huawei’s Kirin 980 artificial intelligence chipset and the reverse wireless charging feature introduced last year with the Mate 20 Pro, which lets users charge their phone wirelessly from another phone.

The P30 launch comes at a time of slowing growth for the smartphone industry as a whole and as Huawei faces heightened political pressure from the United States.

Suggested: Huawei Honor 7S Specs and Price.
