Huawei P30 Series global launch; key details


Huawei has just released its most advanced flagship phones yet

In 2018, the Huawei shipped more than two hundred million smartphone units, dominating the one-third of the global smartphone market. One can’t mention Huawei without taking the P series flagship smartphones into consideration. As the high-end Huawei smartphone, the P series not only achieved great sales performance but a reputation for excellent quality.

From the world’s slimmest smartphone HUAWEI P6, to the all-metal flagship HUAWEI P8, to the HUAWEI P10 with 10 colour variations, the HUAWEI P series is a flagship device series targeting young and fashionable consumers.

In terms of photography, from the monochrome cameras of the HUAWEI P9 to the redefined portrait photography of the P10, and from Leica certification to AI empowerment, the HUAWEI P20 established a benchmark in the 2018 smartphone industry with its brilliant design and powerful triple rear camera setup. Meanwhile, the P20 set a barrier for other smartphone manufacturers. After one year, people have greater camera expectations of the P series successor.

Reportedly, the latest P series product is coming to Kenya soon, and it will be the light flagship HUAWEI P30 Lite, designed for the elegant and international, fashionable elites. Enriching and supplementing the Huawei P series after the P20, what surprises will the P30 Lite bring to us?

The Huawei P30 series of phones was announced in Paris on Tuesday March 26, 2019.
The event, which Huawei billed #RewriteTheRules was live streamed on Huawei’s YouTube channel.The new flagship smartphones, which succeed the Huawei P20 and P20 Pro, are the first flagship handsets Huawei has unveiled this year.

At the event, Huawei unveiled the P30 and P30 Pro, talking up the cameras big time, in particular the low light capabilities, the zoom, and how much better they are than Galaxy and iPhone cameras, even putting on a live demo of the three makers’ phones head-to-head to show where the P30 Pro excelled.

The P30 series features a new smaller notch and reduced bezels. Battery sizes in both handsets have also been increased, while there is now an earpiece-less design on the front screen. The unlock speed on the in-screen fingerprint reader is now 30 per cent faster, too.

The P30 has a 6.1-inch screen with a 19.5:9 aspect ratio, while P30 Pro has a 6.47-inch screen with a 19.5:9 aspect ratio. The P3o Pro is IP68 water and dust resistant. The colour finishes on both devices are made from 9 layers of nano optical color finish material. Handset colour options include Breathing Crystal, Amber Sunrise, Pearl White, Aurora and Black.

In terms of photography, the P30 features a SuperSensing 40MP Leica Triple Camera system (40MP main + 16MP wide angle + 8MP telephoto) with AIS and OIS. The P30 Pro features a SuperSensing 40MP Leica made quad camera system, (20MP ultra wide + 40MP wide angle + 8MP 5x telephoto +ToF).

AI HDR+ is embedded in both phone’s camera systems, which deliver machine learning of photo composition and pro colour and adjustment capabilities, such a portrait against strong backlights.
Both the P30 and P30 Pro pack 32MP front facing selfie cameras with AI HDR+.

The P30 comes with a 3,650 mAh battery, and the P30 Pro comes with a 4,200 mAh battery. Both these batteries support Super Fast 40W SuperCharge charging, which allows a 70 per cent charge in only 30 minutes. 15W wireless and reverse wireless charging is also supported on the P30 Pro.
