In a few days, we will enter a new year. This year has been quite an interesting one with so many trends and records set. 2019 is expected to also bring some interesting changes and trends to the mobile industry. One of the anticipated phones in 2019 is Huawei‘s P-series flagships which will include the Huawei P30 and the Huawei P30 Pro. A render has surfaced online said to be of the Huawei P30 Pro and it shows the phone’s design and features, key one being the quad cameras on its back.
The Huawei P20 Pro was the first triple camera phone in the world. Its successor will add an extra sensor when it launches next year but it won’t be the world’s first phone with four rear cameras as that title belongs o the Samsung Galaxy A9/A9s. The non-pro version of the P30 will come with three rear cameras, one more than that of the Huawei P20.
According to XDA Developers, only three of the four cameras on the Huawei P30 Pro can be used for taking pictures. The fourth is a ToF (time of flight) camera that will be used for 3D face scanning and modeling. However, one of the Huawei P30 Pro’s sensors is a telephoto lens with 10x optical zoom. The Huawei P30 will make do with a telephoto lens with 5x optical zoom.
The render shows the four cameras are arranged vertically. Three of the sensors are in a single housing with a LED flash and laser focus module between the first lens and the other lenses. The fourth lens is in a separate housing but on the same vertical line as the others. As Huawei has done in the past, it is also working with Leica as the camera manufacturer’s name can be seen inscribed on the back.
The Huawei P30 Pro ditches the rectangular notch for the water-drop notch which Huawei’s sub-brand, Honor, has termed Dewdrop Notch Display. The switch to a display with a smaller notch means the screen-to-body ratio will be higher. The phone is shown in the render with a gradient finish.
The Huawei P30 and Huawei P30 Pro are expected to launch in March. They will be powered by the Kirin 980 processor and will run EMUI 9.0 based on Android Pie out of the box.
