The HUAWEI P30 and HUAWEI P30Pro are finally launched after countless leaks and teasers. As expected, the HUAWEI P30 and HUAWEI P30 Pro comes with new Leica-infused cameras, which has shattered the current DxOMark records.

The HUAWEI P30 features an improved Leica Triple Camera, while the HUAWEI P30Pro ups the ante with its Leica Quad Camera. The HUAWEI P30’s zoom capabilities tops out at 3x, but the HUAWEI P30 Pro goes all the way to 5x thanks to new periscopic optics. Impressively, HUAWEI managed to add OIS to the zoom optics as well as the new 40MP camera for the HUAWEI P30 Pro, while the HUAWEI P30 has OIS for its 3x telephoto camera.

New RYYB Bayer filter for 40% better light sensitivity!

HUAWEI revamped 40MP sensor here, with it now dubbed the HUAWEI SuperSpectrum Sensor. The sensor touts a new RYYB Bayer filter instead of the standard RGGB filter. HUAWEI claims 40% better light sensitivity with this new color filter. In addition to that, HUAWEI is also equipping the 40MP sensor with a wide f/1.6 aperture and also a maximum ISO of 409600.

The software aspect has also been upgraded with AI HDR+ and improved AIS. The results are pretty promising, but we will definitely leave the judging until we can actually try out the HUAWEI P30 Pro for ourselves.

With these new cameras, the HUAWEI P30 Pro scores an insane 112 on DxOMark, shattering their long-standing records set by the HUAWEI P20 Pro.

Like its predecessors, the HUAWEI P30Pro’s Amber Sunrise takes its inspiration from the Pantone Color of the Year, Living Coral. The vibrant orange is definitely refreshing, with a hue that reminds us of Lamborghini’s Arancio Borealis.
