The release of the Huawei P30 line may be just around the corner. However, there may not be very many surprises at that event. The two flagship phones that are set for launch then have already been leaked copiously in the last few weeks.
For example, we know that these phones will be sticking with sub-4K displays this year, as with the P20 and P20 Pro before them. However, according to a new, comprehensive spill perpetrated by Roland Quandt at WinFuture, their sucessors may have some attributes to beat even the newer Mate 20 series.
The new article in question illustrates Huawei's early 2019 smartphone camera options in detail. The base model (the P30) will have a main 40MP shooter, with a focal length of 1.8. It will be backed up by an additional wide-angled 16 MP module (which may or may not by f/2.2) an an 8MP zoom f/2.4 lens. The P30 Pro will also have these sensors - but will also pack a 10x hybrid zoom and a time-of-flight (TOF) depth sensor.
This sounds like it will have all its image-capture bases covered, but may also make a rear panel design look a little crowded. Both phones will have a water-drop notch on the front containing just one 32MP sensor. They will be set into displays that have been stretched out to 6.1 inches in the P30 and 6.47 inches in the P30 Pro.
The P30's new colorways have also been outlined in this new leak. It will come in black (which seems to have a rather anthracite-like shade), Ice White (a markedly pale blue-to-purple fade that may also apparently end up being called Breathing Crystal) and Aurora (an attractive dark blue/green shift). The P30 Pro will also come in these SKUs, and also have a new orange-red option that may be called "Amber Sunrise".
Quandt's tips with regard to the new line's power and performance may be less than an eyebrow-raiser for some. The Kirin 980 with its dual NPU and Mali G76 GPU will make a comeback in both new phones. Huawei are again sticking with 6GB of RAM for the P30, which gets just 128GB in storage. The Pro variant also has a single 8GB RAM option, with 128GB, 256GB and 512GB internal memory SKUs. However, this may apply to the European market only.
Both phones will be able to use its maker's NanoMemory Card and will have dual-SIM variants. The P30's battery will offer 3650mAh, whereas the Pro will have a more 2019 4200mAh power-pack; both of these will also have Huawei's Super Charge.
Quandt also suggests that this new flagship series will start at around €800 (about $906), but could not say how much the best-spec'd SKUs may cost. Finally, he asserts that the P30, at least, will retain a headphone jack for this year.
