Launched in Paris on March 26, the P30 Pro has earned rave reviews and has instantly become the standard by which all other smartphone cameras will be measured. The HUAWEI P30 Pro has also garnered global accolades with the Technical Image Press Association (TIPA) awarding it "Best Photo Smartphone" award at their general assembly.
What makes Huawei's latest their greatest?
Huawei has worked to optimize the P30 series camera for Snapchat, bringing more camera innovation to users, aiming for Snapchatters to soon be able to enjoy more experiences using the Huawei P30 camera. Before you get too excited, we should highlight these are explicitly listed as variants designed for use in Latin America. The P30 Pro is dubbed a "quad camera" with numerous imaging options. The flagship's Leica Quad Camera System, sporting a versatile 40MP Huawei SuperSpectrum Sensor and 20MP ultra-wide camera, alongside a stabilized SuperZoom Lens leveraging proprietary optics design, provides clarity and zoom never before seen on a mobile phone. All of the bits, from the sensor, lens arrangement, image signal processor (ISP) and neural processing unit (NPU) work together for shots that really have to be seen to be properly believed.
The 1/1.7-inch HUAWEI SuperSpectrum Sensor looks at light in a fundamentally new way.
The HUAWEI P30 Series elevates premium design to new heights. This allows more green and red light to reach the sensor, increasing light-gathering by up to 40%. We would like to thank TIPA once again for honoring our latest flagship P30 Pro. Best of all, it has a high-fidelity magnification feature, with 5X optical zoom, 10X hybrid zoom and 50X digital zoom. The company's gone and chucked an actual prism inside the phone, to further increase its range.
"These devices feature the innovative Huawei SuperSpectrum sensor, an optical SuperZoom lens, a new Huawei time-of-flight camera, and enhanced optical and artificial intelligence, image-stabilization technology", Li said. On the front, the phone has a 32MP selfie camera of f/2.0 aperture.
Huawei's constantly been improving its smartphone design skills, arriving by leaps and bounds at its choices for the P30 and P30 Pro. Something that feels good in the hand, you know?
There are three colours available for both the P30 and the P30 Pro in South Africa: Breathing Crystal, Aurora and Black.
Sales of the Huawei P30 show a 44 percent increase on the number of Huawei P20 smartphones sold during its first week of sales, according to the company. Both devices run EMUI 9.1 and both have an Extendable Read-Only File System (EROFS) created to speed up... well, everything.
