The Huawei P20 Pro that was announced earlier this year is the first smartphone ever to feature a triple camera unit on its rear. Hence, the rumor mill has been speculating that the Huawei P30 Pro arriving next year would be featuring a quad camera setup. While it may not be the world’s first phone to feature quad camera setup as Samsung has already launched the Galaxy A9 (2018) with four rear-mounted cameras, a recent report had claimed that the P30 Pro could be equipped with an additional rear camera sensor. Olixar has shared fresh images of its cases for Huawei P30 and P30 Pro to claim that these handsets will respectively feature triple and quad cameras on their rear.
The case images of the Huawei P30 Pro shows that the vertical quad camera setup will be coupled with a separate cutout for flash unit. It seems to feature a dual-LED flash and the two dots placed over it could be some additional sensor like laser autofocus. The case image of the P30 shows that there is a single vertical cutout for the triple camera unit and the LED flash.
It speculated that Huawei will settle for waterdrop notch display design for the P30 and P30 Pro and not the in-screen camera hole design available on new phone like Huawei Nova 4 and Honor V20. Benjamin Geskin’s renders of the P30 Pro showed how it appear with waterdrop notch design and quad rear cameras.
The images shared by Olixar seems to show slightly different waterdrop notch design for the P30 and P30 Pro. The images feature OPPO’s styled date arrangement on the top-left corner of the screen. In fact, it seems that the case maker has used the image of the OPPO R17 as the front image for the P30 and P30 Pro handsets. The bottom edge of the P30 and P30 Pro cases have cutouts for USB-C and external. There is a big circular cutout on the top edge of these cases. Could it be for the 3.5mm audio jack or something else? The P20 series lacked the 3.5mm audio jack. It is advisable to wait for some more leaks to confirm whether the Chinese manufacturer will be bringing the feature back on the P30 series.
The Huawei P30 series will be rivaling with Galaxy S10 series that will feature in-screen camera hole design for the Galaxy S10 and S10+ models. The Galaxy S10 series will be announced in February whereas the P30 and P30 Pro likely to go official in March.
