Yesterday, Amazon accidentally put up a listing for the Huawei P30 Pro, which it eventually removed from the site. We were able to find put that the phone will be launched on April 5th, most likely alongside the Huawei P30. Both models will be introduced on March 26th. Today, reliable tipster Evan Blass disseminated some new renders of both models on Twitter.
Huawei P30 Pro, which will cost 1028.19 EUR (including VAT, says Amazon), features a 6.5-inch curved OLED panel with a resolution of 1080 x 2340 and an aspect ratio of 19.5:9 for a thinner and taller display. The home-grown Kirin 980 chipset is under the hood, along with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of native storage. The phone will be equipped with a quad-camera setup in back including a 40MP primary sensor, an ultra-wide 20MP sensor, an 8MP telephoto sensor and a Time-of-Flight sensor for 3D scanning, AR, and depth measurements. The handset carries an IP68 rating meaning that it can be submerged in up to 5 feet of water for as long as 30 minutes, and emerge unscathed. A 4200mAh battery keeps the lights on, and Android 9 Pie is pre-installed along with Huawei's EMUI 9.1 interface.The
Huawei P30 has a smaller 6.1-inch flat OLED display, but keeps the same 1080 x 2340 resolution and 19.5:9 aspect ratio. It also is powered by the Kirin 980 SoC, which happens to be the same chip that runs the Huawei Mate 20 Pro. This unit will carry a little less memory than its big brother (6GB of RAM), but offers the same amount (128GB) of storage. It also will have only three cameras on back, with the same 40MP, 20MP and 8MP sensors. The P30 will not include the ToF sensor, but will have Android 9 Pie and Huawei's EMUI 9.1 interface pre-installed.The
Huawei shipped over 200 million phones world-wide last year to place it third behind Samsung and Apple (or second behind Samsung according to some research firms). This year, the company believes that it can top both rivals to become the largest smartphone manufacturer in the world, even without access to the major U.S. carriers. Huawei is company non grata in the states due to fears that its products spy for the communist Chinese government.
