With a Leica quad-lens camera, an OLED Dewdrop display and huge 4,200 mAh battery to name just a few features the Huawei P30 Pro New Edition is, without a doubt, a cutting-edge smartphone.
We discover what this impressive handset has in store below.
Huawei P30 Pro New Edition Design and Display
Thanks to a streamlined design, there's no denying the Huawei P30 Pro New Edition is one good-looking smartphone. Home to a sleek curved body that's protected by anti-fingerprint coating, and an edge-to-edge OLED Dewdrop display measuring 6.47 inches, the look and feel of this handset is certainly impressive.
Users also benefit from a cinematic viewing experience with the display offering an impressive 88.6% screen-to-body ratio, a Full HD+ resolution and over 16.7 million colours. Whilst the handset looks great, it’s durable too, due to its IP68 water and dust resistance rating. This means you can be confident it'll be able to withstand those day-to-day bumps, scratches and any accidental exposure to water.
Huawei P30 Pro New Edition Camera
Created in collaboration with camera experts Leica, you'll find an impressive quad-lens rear camera system loaded onto the Huawei P30 Pro New Edition. Thanks to the combination of high-spec hardware and Huawei's very own advanced photography features, this handset is set to be a fantastic companion for any enthusiastic smartphone photographer.
The quad-lens rear camera consists of a main 40MP wide angle lens, which delivers more than enough megapixels for outstandingly detailed shots. There's a 20MP ultra-wide-angle lens, 8MP telephoto lens and a time of flight (TOF) sensor, so you can really let your creativity flow. The ultra-wide-angle camera helps you to expand your horizons, and it's an invaluable addition for anyone who frequently takes large groups shots, or for those who love to capture beautiful landscape scenes day or night. The 8MP telephoto lens and specialised TOF sensor, meanwhile, are a must to achieve a professional bokeh effect and close-up snaps, and you can take macro shots from just 2.5cm away. There's even a built-in SuperZoom lens on this device, which is capable of delivering up to 50x zoom.
In addition, the Huawei P30 Pro New Edition offers a Super Night Mode on both the rear and front 32MP camera, which calls upon Huawei's SuperSpectrum sensor to produced defined photos even in the lowest light. AI HDR+ solves the opposite problem - enable this feature to fix overexposed images and bring brightness levels down so you can see every detail clearly.
The handset can also shoot in 4K, where AIS and OIS work in harmony to keep things nice and steady. Dual-View Video even enables you to film with the rear and front camera simultaneously, so you can view the same moment over and over from two different perspectives.
Huawei P30 Pro New Edition Power
You'll find a powerful Kirin 980 chipset and octa-core CPU working away behind the scenes, alongside internal memory that's expandable with a microSD card. Helping to ensure the device runs smoothly with no lag, and supporting the phone's most advanced features like its Leica camera system, you can be confident that this handset's core is capable of delivering a fast and efficient performance - no matter how many apps you're running.
Huawei's own operating system EMUI 10.1 (which is based on Android 10), will also be available straight out of the box. Alongside an easy-to-navigate interface, EMUI 10.1 arrives with features like Multi-Window to make using the P30 Pro New Edition as easy as possible. Multi-Window enables you to run two apps side-by-side, while Huawei's Wireless Sharing software means you can send photos, videos and other files to another Huawei phone at lightning speed, with no Wi-Fi or mobile data needed.
MeeTime is great fun too, allowing you to make video calls with friends and family even in low light, with Screen Sharing mode that means you can seamlessly flick through photo albums or old videos together without having to pause or end the call.
Perhaps one of the most exciting new additions is Celia, Huawei's very own smart assistant. The P30 Pro New Edition is one of the first Huawei phones to come with Celia already installed, and Huawei's voice assistant is fully capable of carrying out useful everyday tasks for you, like setting reminders and making calls. Celia can do so much more than the basics though - it can translate in real-time to help you communicate in a different language, and thanks to object-recognition software, it can even identify how many calories are sitting on your plate.
Huawei P30 Pro New Edition Battery
When it comes to battery life, the Huawei P30 Pro New Edition has it covered. Combined with Huawei's intelligent, built-in battery saving technology, the 4,200mAh cell has been designed to last. This battery has been created to keep up with day-to-day demands, so you can game, stream and scroll at your leisure, whilst the battery has the capability to keep up throughout the day.
Even better, the handset offers reverse wireless charging, meaning you can share all that power with friends. As long the other handset is capable of Qi wireless charging, you're good to go. Simply place the other smartphone onto the rear of the phone, and make sure it's positioned centrally. The other device should start charging automatically.
When it comes to charging the phone, you have two options. The device supports 15W Wireless Quick Charge, which will ensure high-speed charging when used with a compatible wireless charger, as well as Huawei's ultra-fast 40W SuperCharge. With the SuperCharge charger (sold separately), you'll be able to reach 70% in as little as 30 minutes.
