Huawei P30 Pro new DxOMark king, dethrones Huawei’s 2018 flagships

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. While the live-stream link is live on YouTube for the P30-series launch, fans from around the globe can tune in when the event commences.

Keeping the lights on is a large 4,200 mAh battery with support for Huawei's 40W SuperCharge 2.0 fast-charging technology, via USB-C.

Aiming for more than greater detail, however, Huawei has followed its mantra of "willingness to change and innovate" by scrapping the RGGB Bayer filter and introducing yellow to its palette instead of green. This has means you get an RYYB sensor, which Huawei says can yield a maximum ISO rating of up to 409,600 on the P30 Pro.

At its highly-anticipated unveiling event in Paris today, Huawei spent a considerable amount of time boasting that the P30 Pro has the highest light sensitivity found on the market today.

Though you may want to view your images and videos elsewhere to witness them in their full glory - there are no 4K screens here - you will have a decent amount of screen to view them on: the P30 Pro features a 6.47in curved OLED screen.

On the video front, the P30 Pro can shoot 2160p at 30fps, 1080p at 60fps, and 720p at 960fps.

The Huawei P30 and P30 Pro are powered by 7nm manufacturing process-based octa-core Kirin 980 SoC with Mali-G76 GPU.

The Huawei P30 and P30 Pro will be released in Black, and four new gradient finishes - Amber Sunrise, Aurora, Breathing Crystal, and Pearl White.

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. This year also sees the introduction of a "dewdrop" notch - this sits in the middle of the top of the screen and is created to use as little as possible of the screen space. In the zoom category, the P30 Pro has an nearly ridiculous advantage over other smartphones. The Pro model features a four-camera setup, with the 40MP main sensor. You get £40 to spend at any of the following: Tesco, H&M, M&S, Uber Eats. Storage is further expandable via Huawei's proprietary NM cards.

South African pricing and release date are set to be released early next week.

Huawei also revealed the DxOMark scores of the Huawei P30 Pro.

Huawei also unveiled the FreeBuds earbuds with a design similar to Apple's AirPods These earbuds come with 12 hours of battery life through their available case and have an IPX4-rated water and dust resistant build.
