Tech giant Huawei chose Paris for the launch of their latest P30 range of smart phones, and we were in for quite a reveal. The latest handsets certainly deliver what you have come to expect from the brand with top notch features and abilities packaged in a sleek and eye-catching design, quickly becoming the world’s number 2 smart phone brand.
The P30 series is available in two variations, the 6.1 inch P30 and the 6.47 inch P30 Pro, both building on the P series’ core of photographic abilities, making leaps from its predecessors models. The latest handsets capture breathtaking images and videos, to their barrel load of features, which includes SuperSpectrum Sensor, an optical SuperZoom Lens, a new Huawei Time of Flight (ToF) Camera, and enhanced optical and AI image stabilisation technology.
The top tier P30 Pro comes with new Leica Quad Camera System, including a 40MP main camera and the front facing camera is packed with an incredible 32MP, for that ultra-sharp selfie. They didn’t just tell us about these new features, they showed us, with live demonstrations of zoom and low light abilities, with results putting competitors Samsung and Apple devices to shame.
Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei Consumer BG, said, “The HUAWEI P30 Series is a fundamental breakthrough after decades of digital camera technology development; it will rewrite the rules and reshape everyone’s perception of mobile photography. Innovations such as the HUAWEI SuperSpectrum Sensor and SuperZoom Lens allow us to push the envelope of both photography and videography—a frontier long overdue for disruption. The Huawei P30 Series will set the pace for the next generation of smartphones by empowering people to capture the true beauty of the world around them through a device that fits in the palm of their hands.”
Another feature that caught people’s attention was the Dual- View video, with the P30 models being able to record two perspectives of the same scene at once, using it’s multiple cameras simultaneously so you can view a long shot and zoomed in angle at the same time in the same composition.
With such abilities you might be worried about battery life, but no need, with the Pro packing a huge 4200mAh battery, and thanks to supercharge function you are able to charge from 0 to 70% in just 30 minutes so you’ll never be caught short on juice.
Not only does do the new phones perform amazingly but they also look great too, taking inspiration from nature and technology. The near bezel free bodies feature a tiny top notch for maximum screen surface area and come in Breathing Crystal, Amber Sunrise, Aurora, Pearl White and Black, Amber Sunrise, a bold and rich red proved to be the most popular id the audience’s reaction is anything to go by.
Other products announced at the launch include a line of Huawei GT watches, FreeLace wireless earphones and their collaboration with eyewear designers Gentle Monster on a collection of smart eyewear.
