Huawei P30 renders showcase triple-camera setup and headphone jack's return


Steve Hemmerstoffer is on a roll lately. Since November he has leaked the designs of the Nokia 9 PureView, the Sony Xperia XZ4 and XZ4 Compact, the Galaxy S10+, and even a few mid-range devices. And today, in partnership with 91Mobiles, he is back with yet another flagship: the Huawei P30.

Lining up with previous expectations, the Huawei P30 brings a number of subtle design changes that make all the difference. Up front, the huge chin which used to be home to a fingerprint scanner has been replaced with a significantly smaller bezel. Likewise, the wide notch featured on the current-generation Huawei P20 has been swapped out for a subtler alternative. These two factors have allowed Huawei to stretch the panel to 6-inches.

Taking a look at the smartphone’s rear, Huawei has maintained the vertical camera setup that it introduced last year. This time around, though, it has been extended slightly downwards in order to incorporate a third 20-megapixel wide-angle camera. Speaking of which, this is set to accompany a main 40-megapixel sensor and a second 5-megapixel telephoto one.

Other subtle changes come in the form of a new dual-LED flash which is no longer circular, and an accented power button like the one seen on the Huawei Mate 20 Pro. In addition to this, the Huawei P30 will also see the return of the popular 3.5mm headphone jack, which was absent from last year’s lineup, and the introduction of an in-display fingerprint scanner.

The Huawei P30 is currently expected to make its debut alongside the Huawei P30 Pro and Huawei P30 Lite in late March or early April. Alternatively, Huawei could bring forward the lineup’s announcement to MWC 2019 in February.
