Norwegian retailer leaks the Huawei P30 Pro in full
Huawei is set to unveil the P30 phones next week at an event in Paris but, like with most of the company’s offerings, the devices have already leaked extensively. The latest leak is one from a Norwegian retailer, Power, that listed the P30 Pro in full. The pages have, of course, been taken down, but not before the source outlet took screenshots.
The P30 Pro features a 6.47-inch FHD+ OLED display. There’s a small, teardrop notch at the top—which means it won’t feature the Mate 20 Pro’s facial recognition system. The display also appears to have curved edges, like the Mate 20 Pro. Providing the P30 Pro with computational power is a Kirin 980. About expected.
At the back of the device is a triple camera setup: 40 MP + 20 MP + 8 MP. There's also a ToF sensor. That hardware is disappointing, as it appears to be the exact same setup as the P20 Pro but with the addition of a ToF sensor. The main question here will be if the 20 MP camera is a monochrome or wide angle lens. ToF sensors are still pretty useless, so we’re not sure why Huawei went with one here. The selfie camera is a 32 MP sensor.
The battery is a 4200 mAh unit, and we expect to see Huawei’s 40 W SuperCharge 2.0. There is reverse wireless charging support. There’s no physical fingerprint reader, since the sensor has been relegated to underneath the phone’s display. Like the Mate 20 Pro, the P30 Pro is IP68 certified.
The P30 Pro will come in two models: 6/128 GB and 8/256 GB. The base model was listed for NOK 9000, and the more expensive one for NOK 10,000. Those prices convert into €1,060 and €1,180 respectively. There's a Huawei Watch thrown in to make the deal a bit more palatable, though.
