"[It] will rewrite the rules and reshape the perception that consumers have of mobile photography", Yu said at the P30's launch at the Paris convention centre.
Both phones run EMUI 9.1 based on Android Pie. You can elect to leave Artificial Intelligence switched on and let the phone tweak settings or output depending on what it detects in front of it. The Huawei P30 Pro will come with a 6.47-inch full-HD+ (1080x2340 pixels) OLED display with curved edges and a waterdrop notch.
Also, the P30 Pro screen comes with an Acoustic Display Technology that uses an in-screen maglev speaker to turn the display itself into a speaker like LG's G8 ThinQ smartphone. Both the phones will be powered by Huawei's own Kirin 980 processor.

Long-awaited video service expected from Apple to compete with Netflix
Meanwhile, Disney's Hotstar, the market leader in the Indian OTT space, has announced a new subscription tier, effective Friday. Apple Arcade games will be great for families, respect user privacy and will not have ads or require any additional purchases.
This sensor also packs OIS, so you have dual-OIS aboard the Huawei P30 Pro, which is certainly going to be handy for handheld night shots. Meanwhile, the Huawei P30 Pro is equipped with a quad rear camera setup with 40MP + 20MP (ultra-wide angle) + 8MP (telephoto) + a ToF sensor.
If you still needed a reason to spend money on a compact camera, it would have been for zoom reach, as even the best smartphone cameras could not provide usable zoom image quality beyond a 5x factor. The P30 Pro also supports 15W fast wireless charging and reverse wireless charging, much like the Mate 20 Pro.
Huawei says its resulting 5x optical zoom beats the digital zooms of competitors using only 2x optical zoom cameras, and that its additional 10x hybrid zoom and up to 50x digital zoom, which use data from multiple cameras to increase detail, is the best in the business.
The standard P30 sports a tri-lens camera, now with ultra wide and a periscope telephoto lens. Gone is the dedicated monochrome sensor camera as found on the P20 Pro, which some people will be sorry to see go - but it was felt that the wide-angle lens was more popular.
South African pricing and release date are set to be released early next week.
The presence of the SuperSpectrum Sensor on both the Huawei P30 and P30 Pro enables maximum ISO rating of 204,800 and 409,600, respectively, accord to the company. There are three main cameras on the device's rear, headlined by an all-new Super Spectrum 40-megapixel sensor with an f/1.6 aperture and 26mm focal length. It also improves portrait mode and bokeh effects by maintaining details in the foreground while naturally blurring details in the background.
