HUAWEI P30 Series is finally out – “P” for Photography

Huawei Consumer Business Group (BG) unveiled the HUAWEI P30 and HUAWEI P30 Pro at the Paris Convention Center on 26 March 2019.

The HUAWEI P30 Series is available in Singapore from Saturday, 6 April 2019 at the recommended retail price of S$998 and S$1,398 respectively. Customers can head down to VivoCity, Central Court Level 1, from 10 AM to 10 PM over the weekend and receive a premium gift set worth up to S$470 with every purchase of the HUAWEI P30 or P30 Pro, while stocks last.

Preorders will be available online to customers from Wednesday, 27 March, 12 AM, through local telecommunication operators and at Huawei Official Store with Lazada. What’s more, an upsized variant of the HUAWEI P30 Pro with 512GB storage will also be on sale exclusively for shoppers on Lazada. Limited quantities are available.


HUAWEI P30 Pro is equipped with a new Leica Quad Camera system, including a 40MP main camera with HUAWEI SuperSpectrum Sensor, a 20MP ultra-wide-angle camera, an 8MP telephoto camera, a HUAWEI Time-of-Flight (TOF) Camera, along with a 32MP front camera for a new level of selfies.

The 1/1.7-inch HUAWEI SuperSpectrum Sensor deviates from the traditional RGBG Bayer filter by replacing the green pixels with superior yellow pixels, yielding a high maximum ISO rating of 204,800 and 409,600 on the HUAWEI P30 and HUAWEI P30 Pro, respectively.

The f/1.6 wide aperture sensor delivers ultra-wide images. Working together with the large RYYB sensor and Huawei AIS + OIS, the Huawei P30 Pro delivers brighter images even in low-light.

SuperZoom supports high fidelity magnification up to 5 times optical zoom, 10 times hybrid zoom and 50 times digital zoom, which it achieves through a periscope design. A prism element in the telephoto camera bends light at a right angle to maximum focal length while minimizing camera height and without disrupting device design.

HUAWEI Time-of-Flight (TOF) Camera captures depth-of-field information to deliver precisely accurate image segmentation. Precise distance measurement allows for the simulation of multiple levels of bokeh—from a focused background to a creamy, Leica-style blur—highlighting the subject in any scenario.

Huawei AI HDR+ enables the front and rear cameras to combine multiple photos taken in quick succession to optimize overexposed and backlit selfies. Meanwhile, Super Portrait Mode captures even tiny details, down to the hair strands on a subject’s face. This mode combines depth information, 4-in-1 pixel binning and proprietary algorithms.

The HUAWEI SuperSpectrum Sensor enables spectacular low-light video capture so nighttime scenes still come out clear. Huawei AIS and OIS now support stabilization for all video capture settings – including 4K videos at 60fps for the perfect, steady shot every time, while the SuperZoom Lens allows for crisp close-ups. AI Movie Editor automatically identifies action highlights and gives users the tools to add background music and special effects, such as time-lapse and slow motion.

The HUAWEI Dual-View mode brings a whole new perspective to videos. The Huawei P30 Series devices let you use two of the rear cameras to record different videos simultaneously. In Dual-View mode, you can capture both an ultra-wide-angle clip and a zoom shot – offering a panorama on the right and a close-up on the left of the screen.

The P30 Series design is inspired by nature and the use of new and novel materials. The 6.1-inch HUAWEI P30 and 6.47-inch HUAWEI P30 Pro come in classic Black and three new gradient finishes—Amber Sunrise, Breathing Crystal and Aurora, created with a new high-yield inkjet process that Huawei pioneered.

The FHD+ (2340×1080) Dewdrop display is uninterrupted by a waterdrop notch, providing the maximum display area in an aesthetic, symmetrical front view.
