Huawei P30 Pro Cameras

The Leica branded cameras on the phone includes an 8MP periscope zoom camera that is the most interesting one. It has got a focal length of whopping 125mm along with Optical Image Stabilization (OIS). The result is photos that look sharp with videos that are smoother than ever.

That’s not all about the camera’s as the main sensor on the phone is custom made by Sony. The 40MP sensor carries RYYB color filter arrays where the color Yellow takes the spot of Green color for better low light performance. What’s more, the maximum ISO on the Huawei P30 Pro doubles the range on the Mate 20 Pro which makes the cameras on the phone even more amazing.

The third camera sensor on the P30 Pro is a 20MP ultra-wide angle camera (16mm) with autofocus. Along with it is a fourth camera that is a ToF sensor. The main purpose of this sensor is to detect the multi-layer depth of field for creating realistic bokeh effects. The Hybrid zoom on the cameras is back as well and lets you zoom up to 10x with 50x digital zoom.

Huawei P30 Pro Specifications

Rest, the phone has got a major design overhaul as well. There is a curved 6.47” AMOLED screen up on the front. It is a 1080p+ panel and offers an optical fingerprint reader, as well. An interesting change to the front is the absence of earpiece on the front. The screen acts as an earpiece itself with the second-generation technology for screen sound. Well, it produces a deeper sound with less leakage. Even more, the entire screen acts as an earpiece and you can place your ear at any part of the screen to hear the sound. With this new technology, the phone lacks in stereo speakers. To compensate, the company has put a larger bottom-firing speaker.

Another noticeable change on the front is the teardrop notch with a 32MP selfie camera inside. The bokeh rendering gets an improvement, but the 3D face scanning hardware is not present.

The Huawei P30 Pro has got a 7nm Kirin 980 SoC inside. One may choose either 6/8GB of RAM variants with up to 512GB storage and new NM memory cards. The battery on the phone is a whopping 4,200mAh cell with 15W fast wireless charging. Also, the 15W fast reverse wireless charging technology is available.
