Huawei also claimed that with technologies like SuperSpectrum Sensor and extreme optical SuperZoom lens, the cameras of P30 series smartphones can rival any professional camera.

Huawei's new flagships are proof that good things take time.

Though you may want to view your images and videos elsewhere to witness them in their full glory - there are no 4K screens here - you will have a decent amount of screen to view them on: the P30 Pro features a 6.47in curved OLED screen.

Huawei and Samsung, the world's number two and number one smartphone vendor in terms of sales, respectively, both unveiled handsets with folding displays and 5G capabilities last February, selling new features to a growing number of customers who are holding on to their phones longer than a year or two.

The back of the P30 Pro features a quad-camera setup with a 20MP 16mm f/2.2 ultra-wide camera, a 40MP 27mm f/1.6 OIS main camera, an 8MP 125mm f/3.4 OIS telephoto camera, and a time-of-flight (TOF) camera for depth sensing.

Lionel Messi Completes Magnificent Hat Trick in Win Over Real Betis
In the second half he rounded the keeper but his cross-shot was off target, before being sent through again but firing wide. Messi's three goals helped Barcelona to a 4-1 victory over Real Betis , increasing their huge gap at the top of La Liga.

Artificial intelligence has also always been a key component in Huawei's smartphone design: the P30 phones make use of AIHDR+, whereby the camera surveys a picture for light and can decide where more is necessary rather than brightening the whole image. The 8GB RAM variant with 256GB storage and 512GB storage costs 1099 and 1249 Euro respectively.

The P30's flat OLED display comes in at a slightly smaller 6.1 inches and has an in-screen fingerprint sensor.

We're hoping for strong battery life although there's no 40w fast charge or wireless charging support. Gone is the dedicated monochrome sensor camera as found on the P20 Pro, which some people will be sorry to see go - but it was felt that the wide-angle lens was more popular.

Huawei has earned a bad reputation of using misleading photos in its marketing again and again, but DxOMark tested the smartphone and gave it a best-ever overall score of 112. It also improves portrait mode and bokeh effects by maintaining details in the foreground while naturally blurring details in the background. The secondary lens is an ultra-wide-angle 16MP sensor with f/2.2 aperture. And speaking of which, it's worth noting that the P30 sports a headphone jack while the P30 Pro does not.

On the videography front, the Huawei P30 phones come with a Dual-View Video mode that is created to record wide-angle and closeup view simultaneously. Both phones also have a 2.5cm super macro mode that allows you to capture close up images with incredible details. Huawei P30 is expected to start at Euro 749 (around Rs. 58,500) for 6GB+128GB model and the P30 Pro will carry a premium price tag of Euro 1,024 (roughly Rs. 80,000) for 8GB+128GB configuration. No matter the color, the phone features an IP68 rating for protection against dust and water.
