Alleged Huawei P30, P30 Pro, and P30 Lite official prices leak

Alleged Huawei P30, P30 Pro, and P30 Lite official prices leak
Leaked Huawei P30 Pro renders

With just over a week to go until the Huawei P30, Huawei P30 Pro, and Huawei P30 Lite are unveiled at an event in Paris, the guys over at WinFuture have (once again) provided us with some fresh information. In this particular case, the European pricing for each model.

The Huawei P30 Pro will cost less than the Mate 20 Pro

As indicated by its name, the Huawei P30 Pro will be the range-topping smartphone. At a retail price of €999 ($1133) in most European markets, the standard version will offer an impressive 8GB of RAM paired with 128GB of internal storage. But if this isn't enough, a version of the device with 256GB is reportedly on the way at a cost of €1099 ($1246).

In both cases, the Huawei P30 Pro will offer expandable memory. However, the phone's set to support Huawei’s own nanoSD card standard rather than the universal microSD card.

As visible in the renders, the Huawei P30 Pro will also feature a large 6.47-inch OLED display paired with a small notch and curved edges and some pretty impressive cameras. On the rear, the device will reportedly include a primary 40-megapixel camera that boasts an f/1.6 aperture and optical image stabilization (OIS). According to leaked information, this will be coupled with a 20-megapixel wide-angle camera and an 8-megapixel sensor that boasts a periscope-like lens. The latter should allow for up to 10x lossless zoom.

Completing the Huawei P30 Pro’s camera setup will apparently be a dedicated Time-of-Flight sensor on the rear that'll gather real-time depth information – this could improve bokeh imagery drastically – and a 32-megapixel selfie snapper.

In terms of how this device compares to the Huawei Mate 20 Pro, at a starting price of €999 the new P30 Pro will actually be €50 ($56) cheaper than Huawei’s previous flagship, despite the multiple improvements – the new device includes an extra 2GB of RAM, a slightly larger display, and drastically improved cameras. In fact, the only downside to Huawei’s next-gen device is the lack of 3D facial recognition, although it does still feature an in-display fingerprint scanner.

The Huawei P30 will be much cheaper than the Galaxy S10

Sitting below the Huawei P30 Pro will be the regular Huawei P30. Like its premium sibling, this smartphone also includes a considerable 128GB of expandable storage. Paired with it will be 6GB of RAM rather than 8GB, but this drop is reflected in the smartphone’s price – according to today’s report it’ll cost just €749 ($849) in most European markets.

The Huawei P30, for those of you that might not know, is set to feature a flat 6.1-inch OLED display paired with the same rear cameras found on the Huawei Mate 20 Pro. This means that a 40-megapixel camera is to be expected alongside a 20-megapixel wide-angle alternative and an 8-megapixel sensor that boasts a telephoto lens capable of 5x lossless zoom.

As for how the Huawei P30 compares to the Huawei Mate 20, at launch the former will also be €50 ($56) cheaper than the latter. In this case, the newer smartphone also includes significantly better cameras, an improved display, and 2GB of extra RAM. A quick look at the spec sheet shows that the only major downside is the smaller battery – the Huawei Mate 20 features a 4,000mAh cell while the Huawei P30 is rumored to include a 3,600mAh alternative.

The upcoming smartphone will also be much cheaper than the Samsung Galaxy S10, which retails at €909 in most markets.

No price increases for the Huawei P30 Lite despite improvements

Completing the Huawei P30 series will be the Lite model. Apparently, this device will carry over the 4GB of RAM found inside last year’s Huawei P20 Lite and maintain the same price of €369 ($418) across Europe. However, a number of improvements have been made.

The internal storage, on the one hand, has reportedly been doubled to 128GB. In addition to this, a third sensor has been added to the rear. As a result, the smartphone features a 24-megapixel main camera paired with separate 8-megapixel and 2-megapixel sensors. Unfortunately, the functionalities of the latter two are a mystery at the moment. 

Internally, the Huawei P30 Lite will adopt the newer Kirin 710 which offers performance on par with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 660.

This phone looks so ugly from the front. Small rounded notch combined with a relative big chin. The design looks so unbalanced and so not premium. Even though the device is premium and surely great but it looks just horrible. It looks like the designers at Huawei don’t understand the concept of harmonic design.

But I thought that when u hide the notch, the top and chin will be symmetrical like in my P20 Galaxy s10 with hole-punch and chin, have more horrible ways to hide it

What do you expect, it's Huawei. P20 Pro was even worse, like they really try hard to put everything and doesn't care about the design. It's a shame , the back looks really good.

With the S10 out and having a greatly improved UI, Huawei has a huge handicap: the really crappy Android customization. I would accept that only for a very good price, and it doesn't look to have a good price.

It's time to say goodbye to cheap and good Huawei and welcome to the new expensive Apple chinese copy. Nowadays smartphone companies are getting too greedy which I hope will result in low sales. Shame!!

What's wrong with their UI? I see a lot of people complain about it, but I use both Samsung and Huawei and think they both have their strengths. I prefer Huawei better since it has baked in screen recording and call recording. I don't understand all of the hate on it.

That MUST be in. I see it on every article. I've been using Emui since the P9 came out, and have always liked the customization it offers. But on every article someone hates on it. Random note, anyone remember HTC's old UI? It was so good! Around the time of the EVO 3D, and originally HTC One. That and Cyanagen were my favorites. But now I carry both Samsung and Huawei and appreciate them both. I love the qslide concept that LG has. To me, there is no one perfect skin, but they're all better now than 10 years ago.

It looks bad, inconsistent design reminds me of the old ICS UI.
