Bringing together a balance of power and efficiency without compromising on design and looks has always been a challenge for smartphone makers. However, if you are on the lookout for a powerful new smartphone that not only looks good and delivers on performance, but at the same time is capable of taking some of the most stunning pictures taken on a smartphone camera, then the HUAWEI P30 Pro is the one. A proud member of Huawei’s P30 series, the HUAWEI P30 Pro is packed with more than just a powerful camera. Let’s take a look.

Innovative features in the camera setup include the SuperSpectrum lens which allows for more light to enter the camera sensors, allowing for crisp and clear photos and videos even in low light conditions, while the SuperZoom lens allows the camera to zoom up to 5x optical zoom, 10x hybrid zoom and 50x digital zoom. Thanks to the Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) and Huawei’s AI Stabilization (AIS), users can enjoy blur-free images and videos, be it at low-light, extreme zooms or even while moving. Additionally, the HUAWEI P30 Pro also comes with Dual-View Video1, a revolutionary new way to record videos using multiple cameras for different perspectives.

Powerful hardware under the hood

Under the hood, the HUAWEI P30 Pro houses some impressive hardware. At its heart lies the Kirin 980, Huawei’s flagship chipset and fastest one yet. The chipset plays a key role in handling complex processes in creating a great shot. This is done thanks to smart scene detection, facial detection and tracking, image stabilization, depth perception, RAW image noise reduction and a full RGB color production, all of which contribute towards that perfect shot.

Inspired by timeless aesthetics and a minimalistic concept, the EMUI 9.1 is built around a design language to provide a soothing, natural experience. Additionally, the system software also uses Huawei’s Extendable Read-Only File System (EROFS) for an improved operating smoothness and efficiency. 

A fingerprint sensor and speakers within the display 

The HUAWEI P30 Pro comes with a stunning 6.47 inch FullView display that is built into its unibody design.

The HUAWEI P30 Pro’s display comes with the HUAWEI Acoustic Display Technology, which takes away the need for having a telephone receiver on the screen, paving the way for even slimmer bezels. This is made possible by generating sound from the vibrations of the screen, which are now less noticeable while still providing similar audio quality. The display also houses an In-Display Fingerprint Sensor where users can just place their finger on the display to unlock it.
