Rumor roundup: Huawei P30 Pro visits benchmarks, 10x zoom showcased in camera samples
The Huawei P30 and P30 Pro are billed to be launched later this month, and there isn’t much we don’t know about the devices at this point. The flagships, over the past few days, have made trips to popular benchmarks Geekbench and AnTuTu.
The P30 Pro was listed on AnTuTu with the listing confirming a few rumors. The device will run on Android Pie and will be powered by a Kirin 980. There’s 8 GB of RAM onboard, and 256 GB of storage. That could very well be the top of the line model, though. The listed display is of a 2340x1080 resolution, which converts to a 19.5:9 aspect ratio.
The P30 Pro visited Geekbench and earned a single-core score of 3289, and a multi-core score of 9817—about par with other Kirin 980-powered devices. The Geekbench listing also shows it running on Android 9 and with 8 GB of RAM. It would appear that the P30 Pro will come standard with 8 GB of RAM, but with 128/256 GB variants.
The device also flexed its zoom muscles in a series of camera samples. It’s said to feature a groundbreaking 10x hybrid zoom, and 5x optical zoom. The P20 Pro already showcased the best zoom in the market with its 3x optical zoom, and the P30 Pro will build on that.
The P30, like its more expensive sibling, also made a trip to Geekbench. It earned a single-core score of 3296 and a multi-core score of 9900—both marginally above the P30 Pro's scores. Like the P30 Pro, it ran on Android 9, but unlike its sibling, makes do with 6 GB of RAM.
