Huawei P30
Written by Nanuduke
Huawei P30 is Huawei’s bold statement in the flagship market this year. The smartphone is the company’s sequel to the successful Huawei P20 released around the same time last year. P series is the hallmark of the Huawei brand that showcases their expertise in photography; no wonder the lineup is titled the first letter of photography.

Huawei P30 wows with Leica triple rear cameras packed with incredible features to make you drool. The innards are also remarkable ranging from the 7nm chipset to the under display fingerprint sensor to the software details and more.

Design and Display of Huawei P30

Huawei withholds no funding in the development of the Huawei P30 appearance. You know someone once said, the way you are dressed is the way you’ll be addressed.

The smartphone looks dashing from its outlook. The rounded edges and gradient designs express the sleekness of the smartphone.

Then, its front and rear covered by the Corning Gorilla Glass also add more finesse to it. The phone gets the IP53 rating, making it protected from dust and splash.

Although absent in the Huawei P20, the 3.5mm audio jack makes a comeback to the Huawei P line through this P30 device. And it’s placed at the bottom alongside the USB-C port.

Not forgetting the teardrop notch that takes a portion off the edge-to-edge 6.1-inch OLED panel. A dazzling amount of brightness and contrast is portrayed by the 1080 x 2340 pixels of the screen.

The OLED panel opens the pathway for Huawei to place a fingerprint sensor under the smartphone’s display. That adds to the Face ID security the notch camera delivers.

Battery and Camera Size of Huawei P30

You can stream music and videos, browse on the web and play games for several hours on the Huawei P30 without needing to recharge.

Huawei P30 wows with Leica triple rear cameras packed with incredible features to make you drool. The innards are also remarkable ranging from the 7nm chipset to the under display fingerprint sensor to the software details and more.

The phone’s 3,650 mAh is optimized to serve the above functions for a whole day, yet leaving sufficient to make calls and texts later on. Off the box, the phone is accompanied by Fast Battery Charging 22.5W.

Now, to the camera department. The top seed of the triple camera system is the super 40MP wide-angle Leica camera with f/1.8 aperture. It uses Huawei’s Spectrum technology to produce pictures that are more natural-looking and colourful than regular RGB cameras.

Supporting this camera are the 16MP ultra-wide and 8MP telephoto sensors. Another crisp perk of this setup is the 30x optical zoom that showed more details that wouldn’t have been seen in lesser zoom.

For video recording, several frame rates such as 30fps and 60fps were available to dish out 720p, 1080p, and 4K Ultra HD videos. At the front-facing segment, the 32MP camera takes selfies that are easy on the eye.

Hardware and Software

Huawei’ Emotion UI gets on board, and this time it’s the version 9.1. It is based on the Android 9.0 Pie software, hence, presenting Adaptive brightness and Gesture navigations to mention a few.

Huawei P30 performs seamlessly with the HiSilicon Kirin 980 (7nm) chipset and 6GB RAM in its standard model. Its other models presented nothing less than the 8GB RAM. Also, there are different variations regarding the internal storage which are 64GB, 128GB and 256GB.
