Huawei P30 to arrive with triple-camera setup, 5x lossless zoom support, and more
The Huawei Mate 20 Pro's triple-camera setup
This year’s Huawei P20 series paved the way for a new era in smartphone photography in which multiple sensors became the norm. Naturally, the expectations for next year’s Huawei P30 lineup are pretty high. And if the latest tweet by tipster Evan Blass is anything to go by, the new flagship devices will certainly not disappoint.
According to the information, the regular Huawei P30 will arrive with a new triple-camera setup on the rear. Much like the P20 Pro and Mate 20 Pro that were released this year, the main camera will support a maximum resolution of 40-megapixels. This helps improve the overall photo quality by combining four pixels into one, thus creating a superior 10-megapixel image.
Accompanying this main sensor should be a new telephoto camera which, like previous devices, will permit an impressive 5x lossless zoom. Also expected to be present is an updated wide-angle solution rather than the monochrome sensor that Huawei has historically used on its P-series devices.
Up front, a 24-megapixel camera is once again expected to be included. However, this will presumably be a brand-new sensor which means the overall image quality should be superior.
Specific information regarding the Huawei P30 Pro wasn’t provided by Evan Blass. Nevertheless, if recently-leaked details are accurate, the flagship should arrive complete with an unspecified fourth rear camera. Also, the main 40-megapixel camera featured on the regular model could be replaced by a newer 38-megapixel Sony sensor on the Pro variant.
