Huawei Mate 30 Pro may sport two 40MP cameras and have a "Pro" video mode

Huawei Mate 30 Pro may sport two 40MP cameras and have a
Huawei has been very invested in delivering advanced, high-tech camera experiences on its flagship phones, and the upcoming Huawei Mate 30 Pro is likely to continue this trend by featuring two 40MP main cameras and a "Pro" video mode.

According to a new leak, Huawei Mate 30 Pro's main camera will feature the same 40MP 1/1.55-inch sensor with an RYYB pixel arrangement that we saw on the P30 Pro, accompanied by a 40MP 1/1.7-inch sensor that may be behind an ultra-wide angle lens with a 120-degree field of view. But that's not all, the Mate 30 Pro is also said to sport an 8MP telephoto camera with 5x optical zoom, which will likely double in hybrid mode.

Another leakster claims that with the Mate 30 Pro, Huawei is also going to start focusing more on video, rather than just stills. Huawei's recent phones have been amazing for still photography, thanks to innovations like the P30 Pro's periscope camera and amazing Night Mode, but the company seemingly wasn't as invested in pushing the envelope in terms of video. This may change with the Mate 30 Pro and its rumored "Cine Lens" features.

We don't know what this entails yet, but we assume that the company is working on a new, improved, and expanded video mode for the Mate 30 Pro, possibly accompanied by a dedicated video editing app. If this turns out to be the case, we expect to see something like LG's "Manual Video" mode that grants you much finer control over focus, exposure, shutter speed, and other settings.

The Huawei Mate 30 Pro was recently spotted undergoing tests in public, though its launch window is still a few months away. The Mate 30 Pro is expected to go official at an event in mid-October—accompanied by a "base" Mate 30 model, and possibly a larger X version—and hit store shelves that same month or in early November.

Finally, a large sensor for an ultra wide angle camera! Now if they can increase the bitrate of the video, adopt 4K60 and make the stabilisation a bit more effective, this phone will be a near-perfect smartphone camera with an ultimate versatility.

4K60 depends on the CPU being able.

Add in crazy battery life, fantastic design, 55W charging and this is basically the 'IT' phone. Although I'm going for the Google pixel 4 this year :D
