As a successor to the camera-centric P20 Pro, Huawei has launched its P30 Pro flagship phone. It comes as an incremental upgrade with a new design, latest features, and top-of-the-line internals.
However, what's notable is the novel quad rear camera setup that helps P30 Pro outshine any other smartphone out there to set a new benchmark in smartphone photography.
Here's our review.
The quad camera setup on the P30 Pro comprises a 40MP (f/1.6) primary SuperSpectrum Sensor, a 20MP (f/2.2) ultra-wide-angle secondary sensor, an 8MP (f/3.4) telephoto sensor, and a Time-of-Flight (TOF) camera.
The main camera array also has a color temperature sensor, flicker sensor and offers 5x optical along with 50x digital zoom.
Up front, the phone has a 32MP (f/2.0) selfie snapper.
The 40MP SuperSpectrum sensor uses 4-in-1 pixel binning tech to offer highly detailed 10MP images. This sensor also enables a maximum ISO of 409,600 for low-light photography.
The 20MP wide-angle sensor also allows for good macro or wide shots.
Lastly, the OIS-enabled 8MP telephoto sensor is the highlight feature. It uses a periscope setup to offer stunning optical and digital zoom capabilities.
According to the DxOMark, the Huawei P30 Pro is the best camera smartphone yet. The phone has scored an overall score of 112 (Photo score: 119, Video score: 97) to beat the likes of Huawei Mate 20 Pro and Samsung Galaxy S10+ which scored 109.
The Huawei P30 Pro comes with a 6.47-inch full-HD+ (1080x2340 pixels) OLED screen with 19.5:9 aspect ratio, IP68-rated build quality, and an optical in-display fingerprint sensor.
It also uses an Acoustic Display Technology that allows the screen to act as a speaker.
Lastly, the phone is powered by a Kirin 980 chipset, paired with 8GB of RAM, 128GB/256GB/512GB of internal storage, and 4,200mAh battery.
Huawei P30 Pro costs EUR 999 (Rs. 77,800) for the 8GB/128GB option, EUR 1099 (Rs. 85,600) for the 8GB/256GB variant, and EUR 1,249 (Rs. 97,300) for the 8GB/512GB model. In India, the P30 Pro and the lower-spec P30 are listed as "Coming Soon" on Amazon.
