Huawei’s keynote at MWC 2019 was all about the ultra high-end Mate X foldable smartphone. However, its next, far more accessible flagships, the P30 and P30 Pro are coming soon and have now been revealed in full.

Huawei’s next flagship smartphone will launch in Paris on March 26 after MWC 2019 was focused on the launch of its radical Mate X foldable smartphone. This naturally means that it is about time that it finally leaked out in full and, sure enough, it has. The folks at WinFuture have scored the exclusive this time around and have got their hands on the official renders of the P30 and P30 Pro.

The renders reveal that the P30 series appear to be a very natural evolution of the design language the company used on the preceding P20 series. However, the regular iPhone X-style notch has now been replaced by a much smaller, teardrop-style notch that is much less intrusive. The display also extends much further to the bottom edge where the P20 had a traditional fingerprint scanner/home button combination placed. As the rear of the device doesn’t have a fingerprint scanner, we can only assume that this is now embedded under the display.

Also noticeable is that Huawei has added a fourth camera to the rear of the P30 Pro which is thought to include a 10x hybrid zoom lens, telephoto lens and a lens with 5x zoom in the main array. This looks to be joined by a fourth sensor, likely a time of flight (ToF) type lens to add additional depth detection and enhanced AR capabilities – the regular P30 misses out on this. It is expected to be fitted with Huawei’s Kirin 980 SoC, but some models could also incorporate Huawei’s Balong 5000 5G modem.

I have been tech-obsessed from the time my father introduced me to my first computer, an Apple ][. Since then, I have grown to enjoy exploring and experimenting with any computing platform that I can get my hands on – I am the definitive early adopter! I have always been interested in how we can use technology to shape and improve our lives, most recently using it to record, mix and master my debut record, Acuity – Nature | Nurture out now on Spotify.
