With its foldable smartphone all set for an unveiling during the MWC 2019 event on February 24, Huawei has now confirmed when it’ll be launching its latest flagship – the Huawei P30.
As per a video teaser on Weibo, Huawei has confirmed that the Huawei P30 series including the P30, P30 Lite and P30 Pro will be unveiled at an event in Paris on March 26. What this means is that we wouldn’t get to see the flagship Huawei phone during the MWC 2019 event which is set to happen by the end of February.
As per previous renders, it looks like the Huawei P30 will come with a waterdrop notch, which Huawei calls Dewdrop Notch Display. The device features a high screen-to-body ratio design with minimal bottom chins and almost non-existent side bezels. The right of the device will feature volume controls and LED flash.
A case render leaked in December revealed that the most expensive of the three, the P30 Pro will incorporate a four-camera setup at the back. If this is believed to be true then it will be a significant upgrade from its predecessor Huawei P20 Pro that is loaded with a triple-camera setup. The cameras are aligned vertically and one can also see some sensors and LED flash just adjacent to it.
The device will feature an FHD+ screen with a resolution of 2340 x 1080 pixels and will run Google’s latest Android 9 Pie interface with Huawei’s own EMUI on top. At least two of the smartphones in the series will be powered by the Kirin 980 chipset with fast charging of up to 40 watts.
Multiple reports suggest that Huawei P30 Pro will come loaded with a 10x optical zoom. One of the rear cameras might come loaded with a 40-megapixel sensor and it is reported that out of four cameras, one will feature Time of Flight (ToF). This will allow the smartphone to perform 3D scanning and modelling. The phone is also reported to sport curved OLED display panel, which will be manufactured by China’s BOE and there are chances that the panel could be bought from LG Display.
