The Huawei Mate 30 Pro is officially the new king of smartphone photography

Huawei has received the highest rating from DxOMark for the Huawei Mate 30 Pro’s industry-leading camera system. The Mate 30 Pro’s SuperSensing Cine Camera received an overall score of 121, four points higher than the second-highest score of 117.

It also comes top in the Photo category with a score of 131 — calculated from sub-scores that examine different aspects of a device’s performance for still images under different lighting conditions. Both accolades recognise the Huawei Mate 30 Pro as the new king of smartphone photography, raising the bar for competitors.

“With an overall DxOMark camera score of 121, the Huawei Mate 30 Pro is the new number one in our smartphone camera ranking. The new record is largely due to a phenomenal photo score of 131, a full five points ahead of the previous leader,” DxOMark commented.

The Huawei Mate 30 Pro’s ground-breaking camera system includes a 40MP SuperSensing Camera, a 40MP Cine Camera, an 8MP Telephoto Camera and a 3D Depth Sensing Camera. The SuperSensing Cine Camera is a dual main camera system capable of taking stunning photos including Ultra-Wide Night-shots, Ultra-Wide-Angle shots with HDR+, and portrait shots with Pro-Bokeh Effect.

Huawei’s Mate 30 Pro is also capable of capturing outstanding video footage. The Cine Camera features a large 1/1.54-inch sensor with a high maximum ISO. It offers ultra-slow-motion video at the highest available 7680 frames per second, as well as 4K low-light ultra-wide time-lapse video.
