Presented by Huawei P30 and Huawei P30 Pro


Today in Paris, Huawei held a pompous presentation on the release of the Huawei P30 and P30 Pro. Like its predecessors, both devices offer a general design style, similar technical characteristics, but still differ in terms of positioning. Winning the battle for users is calculated, first of all, at the expense of a perfectly working triple camera, and in the Pro version – a four-chamber system. In addition to the new optics, they bet on the world’s first SuperSpectrumSensor with a RYYB structure (red + yellow + yellow + blue), which is capable of capturing up to 40% more light than a traditional RGB sensor. You can be sure that in the creation of photo news will definitely be among the best in the world. At the presentation, they trumped with an average score of 112 from DxOMark, which was exposed by the Huawei P30 Pro.

At this time, you do not have to poke a finger in the “monobrow”, accusing the manufacturer in rethinking Apple’s ideas. Following the trends, the “bang” narrowed down to the size of a small “drop”. Naturally, the priorities were to radically get rid of the framework and the set goal were almost reached, but still there was a chin, albeit minimal. Huawei P30 Pro boasts a thinner lower indentation, but this led to the “amputation” dynamics. An unusual for the role of sound transmission took the display, and it generates sound with the help of vibrations. The traditional biometric scanner in the flagships of Huawei has gone into oblivion and now it has been consistently integrated into the display, and an increase in its response speed by 30% is announced. The front and back panels are made of glass, the surfaces are curved along the edges and the edging is made of metal. The dimensions of the Huawei P30 are 149.1×71.4×7.6 mm, and the dimensions of the Huawei P30 Pro are 158×73.4×8.4 mm. Traditionally, the bad news for those who choose the Pro-version of the flagship – 3.5 mm headphone jack is not here. In the basic version, it is proposed. And still Pro-variation received water protection on the class IP68. Of the features of this model can be noted IR sensor on the top face. Color solutions are five: black, red, blue, white and “northern lights”.

Samsung’s Huawei P30’s AMOLED-display diagonal was 6.1 inches, and the Huawei P20 Pro had a screen that had the same diagonal before. And now he moved to the basic version and its resolution was 2340×1080 pixels. The Huawei P30 Pro screen with a similar resolution has become even more – 6.47 inches. This unit is naturally heavier and larger. Guilty of this is not only grown in size screen, but also a more capacious battery. So, the Pro version uses a 4200 mAh battery, while the “younger” of the two debutants has a capacity of 3650 mAh. If we take into account the 7-nm effective chip and the OLED matrix, you can count on a decent battery life. Supported proprietary charging capacity of 40 W, but only in the Pro-version, and it can also be charged without wires (15 W) and reversing charging is implemented again. It is declared that 70% of the battery can be charged in half an hour. For the basic flagship they offered 22.5-watt charging and did not deliver wireless.

Inside there is a Kirin 980 and this is not the most powerful chip in the graphic part of smartphones in 2019, which comes around with a lower-quality picture in some resource-intensive games. But smartphones should work smartly and not “choking” in multitasking mode. The manufacturer did not greed and gave them a decent stock of RAM. True, the richness of choice of modifications was not suggested, there is nothing to choose from – one modification with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB constant for a standard flagship. For Huawei P30 Pro, they prepared three versions of 128 GB, 256 GB and 512 GB, and the operational one is everywhere 8 GB. The branded shell is EMUI here, but it has been updated to version 9.1. Among the chips of the new firmware is called Share Onehop technology for recognizing text in pictures, instantly exchanging images and videos between a smartphone and a laptop.

So we came to the main feature of the new products – cameras, in which the company realized its vision of mobile photography and “opens a new chapter in the photo capabilities of the smartphone.” This is what new smartphones were actually created for. The front camera is improved in both smartphones – now it is 32-megapixel with f / 2.0 aperture, instead of 24 megapixel in its predecessors. The Huawei P30 Pro already has 4 cameras on the back. The main module has a 40 megapixel RYYB sensor, and the lens diaphragm is f / 1.6. Three other sensors: a 20 megapixel ultra-wide with f / 2.2 aperture, a 8 megapixel periscope with f / 3.4 aperture for 5x optical zoom (10x hybrid), and a time-of-flight module for analyzing depth and portrait mode. What about optical stabilization? It is at the main sensor and telephoto lens, and the manufacturer himself calls it a double OIS. The Huawei P30 smartphone offers an ISO 204,800 value, and a Pro-variation – 409600. The “junior” flagship scheme consists of three 40 Mp rear sensors (f / 1.8, 80 mm) + 16 Mp (f / 2.2, wide-angle, 17 mm) + 8 Mp (telephoto, f / 2.4, 27 mm, OIS). Each camera has its own focal length, which allows you to get 3x optical zoom.

In Europe, Huawei P30 will be offered for 799 euros, but the acquisition of Huawei P30 Pro will cost more: 8/128 GB – 999 euros, 8/256 GB – 1099 euros and 8/512 GB – 1249 euros. You can buy new items today.
