Huawei presented the new P30 series on March 26, 2019, including this P30! This Huawei device is the predecessor of last year’s P20, and has everything on board that you would expect from a high-end smartphone: a beautiful screen, good cameras and a luxury glass housing just like it’s pro variant!
The OLED display ensures a beautiful colour reproduction and you can take sharp pictures in every situation with the triple camera setup. Under the hood are the fast Kirin 980 chip, lots of expandable storage memory and the device runs on Android 9 Pie!
In this article below, we are going to look deeply into the full features and specs of this P30 Android smartphone.
Huawei P30 Quick Review
The P30 is equipped with a 6.1-inch screen on which all your content is displayed nicely. Thanks to OLED technology, colours come to life and black is really black! The combination of the beautiful colour contrast and the sharp images ensures a great viewing experience during films and games!
The fingerprint scanner is processed under the OLED panel. Put your fingertip on the designated spot on the display to unlock your smartphone in a fraction of a second! The scanner is also very reliable and ensures that your files and data are secure. Sadly, there is no IP68 certification, so the device is not completely dust and watertight.
Under the hood of the P30, we find the Kirin 980, a powerful chipset developed by Huawei itself. With this chip, the P30 is fast in everything it does. Whether you want to play in 3D, edit photos and videos or want to multitask without a hitch, it’s all possible with this Huawei!
Huawei has provided this P30 with a triple camera setup in collaboration with camera manufacturer Leica. This consists of the main camera of 40 megapixels, a 16-megapixel wide-angle lens and a telephoto lens of 8 megapixels. All three work together to create the perfect picture!
That way, you can also take beautiful photos at night, capture a larger image thanks to the wider angle and you can zoom in 5x with the telephoto lens! At the front, you will find the 32-megapixel front camera in the notch, with this single camera you shoot very sharp selfies.
With the 3650mAh battery, you will never be without power! The hefty battery provides enough power to reach the end of the day. You can charge your phone at lightning speed via cable since your P30 is charged up to 58% in half an hour!
The Huawei P30 comes with 6GB RAM and 128GB internal storage as standard. This is already a considerable amount where you can store a lot of photos, apps and music. You can also expand the memory by inserting an NM card up to 256GB in your device, ideal!
Huawei delivers the P30 with EMUI 9.1, this is Huawei’s variant of Android 9 Pie. You can start immediately with various Android and Huawei services and adjust your smartphone to your taste. The Play Store is also ready for you with millions of apps and games!
