In a recent launch in Dubai, the Huawei P30 Pro was introduced to a mesmerized audience.
The Huawei P30 Pro’s focus is most certainly the camera. There are specs aplenty, an array of sensors on offer,and there a couple of new features not seen before on a phone.
Huawei has once again teamed with Leica, focusing a lot on the cameras. There are three cameras on the back, plus another sensor for improved depth-sensing, and a low-light mode that is unbelievable.
The technology used in this new phone results in ridiculously detailed shots. But the real star is that Super Sensing moniker. Instead of the typical RGB sensor (that’s red, green and blue) you’ll find in rival phones, the P30 Pro uses RYYB, or red, yellow, yellow, blue.
During the Huawei briefing of the device, the company said this change results in better photos when the light is poor. Huawei has also boosted the max ISO levels, up from 102,400 to 400,000, which should also help low-light shooting.
Along with the actual tech inside the camera, Huawei has also altered and improved certain aspects of the camera’s software. There’s a new HDR+ mode that uses the AI tech inside the Kirin 980 chipset to improve the HDR. Huawei said the camera will determine what you’re shooting and alter the strength and look of the effect, keeping skin tones natural. Improvements have also been made to AI stabilization, another feature that impressed greatly with the P30 Pro, by combining it with proper optical image stabilization (OIS) to hopefully reduce handshake even further.
Most importantly, there’s a 32-megapixel selfie camera in the tiny dewdrop notch around the front.
But there’s more! Huawei includes one feature that you can rarely find on another flagship phone: an IR blaster! Located at the top of the phone, it allows you to use your phone as a remote control for your TV, AC, or any other compatible gadget you have and it’s a cool extra feature.
The Huawei P30 Pro definitely looks like it’s going to be a seriously impressive device.
