Huawei P30 Pro has been leaked numerous times now and we pretty much know almost everything about the phone, provided that it’s still unofficial. However, this has changed because the Huawei’s Vice President of Global Product Marketing, Clement Wong has confirmed that the phone will come with a periscope lens offering Super Zoom technology.
The foundation of excellent mobile photography was earlier set by P20 Pro which offered a 3X optical zoom and a 5X hybrid zoom. Now it’s successor is shaking things up a bit. It is speculated that the Huawei P30 Pro will come with a 10X lossless zoom.
Earlier, Huawei CEO Richard Yu posted a picture of the moon taken with the Huawei P30 Pro. Mr. Wong claimed that the picture was taken without any external help like the tripod or any other stand etc, rather it was taken handheld. If this is true, then the device will give a very tough competition to the already prevailing flagships like Note 9, Galaxy S10 and Google Pixel 3.
Other than that, Bruce lee, Huawei VP, also shared some pictures that showcase the zoom capabilities of the phone. Earlier, Digital trends also got their exclusive look at the phone in a private room at MWC 2019. The pictures suggested that it will come with a triple camera but the moon picture by Huawei CEO clearly mentions the quad camera watermark.
Describing the photography prowess of the Huawei P30 Pro, Mr. Wong claimed that the device will offer something “nobody has done before.”
He also claimed that the phone will come with amazing low light photography capabilities. He further added that it will be better than the “software only approaches” of the competitors. This might be a hint about the Google Pixel 3 which uses software abilities to capture amazing low light shots.
If Huawei P30 Pro is going to be better than the Pixel lineup, it means Huawei is cooking something very delicious but to claim something this big means that the device will actually come with unique camera hardware and will leapfrog the competition.
The Huawei P30 and P30 Pro smartphones are slated to go official on March 26. Both phones will be equipped with OLED displays, Kirin 980 SoC, 40W fast charging technology and more.
