Huawei introduces the HUAWEI P30 Series

SYDNEY, Australia—27 March 2019 – Huawei unveiled their newest flagship smartphones – the HUAWEI P30 and HUAWEI P30 Pro – at a global launch event today in Paris, building on Huawei’s heritage in design and photography.

The most advanced photographic tools from Huawei yet, these smartphones feature a revolutionary 40 Megapixel HUAWEI SuperSpectrum Sensor that captures light more efficiently than conventional systems,  combined with a sophisticated optical zoom that brings the user much closer to the action. Featuring a Leica Quad Camera system, the Huawei P30 Pro has the ability to deliver precise but natural wide aperture shots thanks to a dedicated HUAWEI ToF (Time of Flight) that precisely measures the distances between the subjects and background. When combined together, these revolutionary technologies deliver an amazing photographic experience that is unparalleled.

Key Features of the HUAWEI P30 Series Include:

  • Cutting edge main camera featuring a revolutionary 40 MP Huawei SuperSpectrum Sensor
  • A new generation Leica Quad Camera on the Huawei P30 Pro featuring a 5X Optical Zoom lens and an Ultra-wide angle and ultra-macro lens
  • 5X optical zoom on the Huawei P30 Pro incorporates a revolutionary periscope system that is stabilised both optically and using AI, allowing users to get closer to subjects while maintaining a slim line design
  • Ground breaking Huawei FullView OLED display featuring Huawei Acoustic Display technology to reproduce crystal clear sounds without the need for a traditional earpiece speaker (Huawei P30 Pr only)
  • Class-leading battery charging performance with Huawei Supercharge technology and on the Huawei P30 Pro, compatibility with fast 15W Wireless charging including reverse wireless charge
  • The largest capacity battery in its class further optimized by AI (4200mAh on Huawei P30 Pro).
  • Optical fingerprint scanner built into the display on both Huawei P30 and Huawei P30 Pro

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.”

Larking Huang, Managing Director of Huawei Australia Consumer BG, followed, “We’re thrilled to be the makers of a phone range that continues to elevate everyday photography. As Australians we’re proud of our picturesque nation. With the HUAWEI P30 Series any phone user can transform the average selfie, lighten the evening sky or capture the full view with simplicity but with consistently amazing results. Yet, while we’re aiming rewrite the rules of photography, we’re listening to all Australians’ needs – a longer battery life to keep up with our busy lifestyles and a slick design to match our fashion forward trends. The HUAWEI P30 Series is the phone for the modern Australian user.”

Rewriting the Rules of Photography for Stunning Professional-grade Pictures Every Time

  • The HUAWEI P30 Pro is equipped with a new Leica Quad Camera System and a new Leica Triple Camera on the Huawei P30.
  • Both phones feature a 40MP main camera with the advanced HUAWEI SuperSpectrum Sensor, a 20MP ultra-wide angle camera (16MP on Huawei P30), an 8MP telephoto camera followed by a fourth HUAWEI ToF Camera on the Huawei P30 Pro. Front selfies are improved on both thanks to a 32MP front camera
  • The 1/1.7-inch HUAWEI SuperSpectrum Sensor – the largest in its class – deviates from the traditional RGGB Bayer filter on most cameras and utilizes a RYYB filter configuration instead
  • By replacing green pixels with yellow pixels, it helps yield a high maximum ISO rating of up to  409,600 on the HUAWEI P30 Pro and 204,800 on the HUAWEI P30. This fundamental shift in sensor technology, combined with HUAWEI AIS, OIS and the HUAWEI P30 Pro’s f/1.6 wide aperture, deliver extraordinary photography and videography experiences across a wide range of scenarios producing images with enhanced detail, color and clarity even in lower light
  • Through a new periscope design, the SuperZoom Lens on the Huawei P30 Pro supports 5 times optical zoom, 10 times hybrid zoom and 50 times digital zoom. A prism element in the telephoto camera bends light at a 90-degree angle to maximise focal length while minimising camera height, without disrupting the sleek design of the phone
  • The HUAWEI ToF Camera unleashes the imagination. Unique to the HUAWEI P30 Pro, it captures depth-of-field information to deliver accurate image segmentation. Precise distance measurement allows for the simulation of multiple levels of bokeh. The Super Portrait feature captures even the smallest details, such as individual strands of hair. It combines depth information and proprietary algorithms to produce outstanding images with defocused backgrounds and highlights the subject of the image in any scenario.

Redefining Smartphone Videography

  • The HUAWEI P30 Series is a smartphone camera with truly cinematic capabilities that usher a new era in studio-grade videography. The HUAWEI SuperSpectrum Sensor enables spectacular low-light video capture so night scenes appear bright and highly detailed. HUAWEI AIS and OIS support stabilisation resulting in perfectly steady shot in a wide range of situations.
  • HUAWEI Dual-View Video[1] can capture two perspectives of the same scene at the same time by using multiple cameras simultaneously. The HUAWEI P30 Series provides a full view of a scene while also capturing a close-up of a subject, unleashing new and exciting possibilities for video.

A Heritage of Stunning Design

  • The HUAWEI P30 Series design, created with a nine-layer nano optical colour finish, is inspired by the unique color palette and pristine look of salt flats. The 6.47-inch HUAWEI P30 Pro and 6.1-inch HUAWEI P30 both come in two colours – Breathing Crystal and Aurora. The Dewdrop Display features a tiny notch, providing a maximized display area. The near bezel-less front glass houses an In-Screen Fingerprint sensor for quick and secure identity authentication. The HUAWEI P30 Pro also features HUAWEI Acoustic Display Technology that enables it to deliver high-quality audio through a sound emitting display.

Ultimate Innovation

  • Innovation is core to Huawei’s DNA. The HUAWEI P30 and HUAWEI P30 Pro are packed with industry-leading features that set them apart in power, performance and efficiency:
  • The HUAWEI P30 Series is powered by the 7nm Kirin 980 processor, that delivers ultimate performance, top-class efficiency and faster image recognition through its Dual-NPU AI processing power
  • The HUAWEI P30 Pro features a best in class 4200mAh battery (typical value) and 40W HUAWEI SuperCharge that charges a device from zero to 70 percent in 30 minutes
  • To improve thermal performance thus enhancing its reliability, the HUAWEI P30 Pro features HUAWEI’s SuperCool technology keeping the phone cool even during heavy use.
