We are still a few days away from Huawei's official announcement of its new flagships P30 Pro and P30, but the constant trickle of leaks with respect to phones has quickly become a flood. WinFuture has released full specifications for both devices, along with official public relations images.
The most interesting new addition still seems to be the camera of the P30 Pro, which Huawei is launching with a camera system that promises a 10x zoom. According to WinFuture that figure of 10x is achieved through the hybrid zoom. With a periscope system, the P30 Pro has a focal length equivalent to 135mm for a 7.8x optical zoom, which is combined with software improvements and sensor data from the main camera to reach the 10x figure. In addition, the P30 Pro offers a main lens of 40 megapixels f / 1.6, a lens of wide angle of 20 megapixels f / 2.2 and a small sensor of ToF (time of flight) in the back below the flash to collect data of depth .
There is also a larger OLED screen that measures 6.47 inches, with a smaller tear notch and curved Samsung style sides. The new set of front cameras seems smaller: there is no IR sensor like the P20 Pro used for its 3D facial unlocking feature (although the P30 Pro still supports face unlocking, although in a presumably less secure way) and without a grid of speaker that apparently will be replaced by the vibration of the OLED panel, similar to other phones like the LG G8. The P30 Pro will also offer an on-screen fingerprint sensor for additional biometric security options.
The processor is the latest set of Kirin 980 octa-core chips from Huawei, with 8GB of RAM and storage options of 128GB, 256GB and 512GB (expandable through Huawei's NanoMemory cards), along with a battery of 4.200mAh and an IP68 water resistance. Lack of the P30 Pro is a headphone jack, as well as any 5G support, but that's not too surprising, considering how early we are in the life cycle of next-generation network technology.
Huawei is also updating the standard P30 model: it has a slightly larger 6.1-inch OLED screen (also with a notch in teardrop shape, but without curved sides) and A triple chamber system. (The normal P20 had a dual camera system). Huawei is also increasing specifications: it will have the same Kirin 980 processor as its more elegant brother, 6 GB of RAM, 128 GB of storage and a 3,650 mAh battery. It will lack some of the most interesting parts of the P30 Pro: there is no 10x zoom, no fourth ToF camera, or vibrant OLED screen, although it will still offer features such as a fingerprint sensor on the screen and IP68 water resistance. Unlike the P30 Pro, it seems that the standard P30 will remain in the 3.5mm headphone jack.
Huawei is expected to fully reveal the P30 phone family on March 26. Despite the leaks, there may still be a surprise or two ahead (along with the usual things, like the price and the release date).
