Huawei P30 Pro debuted during the firm’s scheduled hardware event on March 26 and represents a substantial improvement over the P20 Pro.
The new flagship has a bigger display, larger battery, better camera system and a faster processor than its predecessor.
P30 Pro’s new photography array is by far its most substantial improvement; the handset comes with four sensors on its rear that each have a specific function.
Huawei’s latest flagship has a new 40-megapixel main module the firm is calling its “super sensing” camera.
Moreover, the P30 Pro also has a 20-megapixel wide-angle system and a time-of-flight (TOF) lens on its rear.
The former allows more subjects to fit into a single frame while the latter is expected to improve the accuracy of portrait mode shots and can be used for the likes of augmented reality (AR) and 3D scanning.
P30 Pro’s telephoto camera is by far the most innovative and ambitious of the four though.
The 8-megapixel sensor with optical image stabilisation (OIS) harnesses a periscope-style system that allows it to deliver a 5-times optical zoom.
Moreover, the camera also helps the P30 Pro achieve a 10-times hybrid zoom and a whopping 50-times digital zoom.
Huawei P30 Pro will release on April 5 and is priced from £899.
Although customers are not able to get their hands on the handset yet, Huawei is already making it better thanks to a new upgrade.
Express.co.uk has been testing the P30 Pro since its debut and recently received an update that featured a number of improvements.
Chief of these was a feature that allows third-party app notifications to be displayed on the product’s always-on display.
While this feature is already present in other Android handsets such as the Galaxy S10 and Pixel 3, the functionality is a welcome edition to the P30 Pro.
