Huawei P30 Series unveiled with up to 50x zoom-in, Multi-View recording and more starting from ~RM3682


Today, it's Huawei's turn to shine with the new P30 series - the Huawei P30 and the P30 Pro as well as a newer Watch GT Active Edition (which is another story). In this article, we will be checking out what the new P30 series has in store for us and they're really getting our attention with their new up to 50x digital zoom feature.

But before we get to that, let's cover the main highlight of the P30 series - the camera. As a camera-centric smartphone, the P30 series builds upon the similar tech specs as the Mate 20 series but takes it much further. The P30 will have 40MP + 16MP + 8MP triple rear cameras that consist of a wide-angle lens, an ultra wide-angle lens and a telephoto lens, whereas the P30 Pro also has  40MP + 20MP + 8MP + ToF (Time of Flight) sensor quad rear cameras. Also, they managed to integrate a periscope lens for up to 50x digital zoom for the first time ever on the P30 Pro.


Wow, will you look at that


10x lossless zoom!

Speaking of cameras, Huawei is also focusing on video recording a lot more, particularly on the P30 Pro. There's a new AIS (AI Stabilizer) and Optical Image Stabilizer combined, AI Video Editing, Low Light Video recording and a brand new Multi-View (a.k.a. Dual-View) recording that allows the user to recording a clip in both primary and ultra wide-angle lens at the same time. It's also crazy to know that its ISO can go up to 409600!

The P30 and P30 Pro will be available in Black, Pearl White, Breathing Crystal, Aurora and a red hot Amber Sunrise colour for all models. Now that's nice.

Huawei P30 Pro in the flesh, it looks normal but it has an Acoustic Display feature. It means that it produces sound from the screen but only for network calling


On the back is where the quad-camera setup are, you can see that there's a box-shaped lens which is the periscope lens that's able to zoom in up to 50x


A closer look showing us no rear fingerprint sensor to be found, so it's located on the screen itself. By the way, the main sensor and periscope lens have OIS integrated


USB Type-C, dual SIM tray (with nano-memory card support) and the speaker grills, no headphone jack for this one


From the side view, you can see the front and back curving in together, making it sleek and slim. On the other hand, the P30 only has the back curving to the body

On the other hand, the P30 has the same look as well but it doesn't have the Acoustic Display feature. The display is also flat instead of curved


The Aurora back design, the triple rear camera setup is just a slightly different
