Huawei’s Next Flagship Phone Will Feature 10x Hybrid Zoom

The Chinese multinational telecommunications equipment and consumer electronics manufacturer could also unveil new smartwatches, wireless charging pads and a smart speaker at the event.

"The zoom on its own will make the new Huawei an extremely tempting option for many mobile photographers, but the camera performs very well in nearly all other areas as well", DxOMark writes in its review.

The European Commission is poised to urge EU countries to share more data to tackle cybersecurity risks related to the next generation of mobile technology, or 5G, but will ignore US calls to ban Huawei, people familiar with the matter said last week. The 6GB RAM and 128GB storage variant of the P30 Pro could cost Euro 999 or approximately Rs 78,000 while the 8GB RAM and 256GB model of the smartphone could be priced at Euro 1,099 or approximately Rs 86,000. If you're not up to speed, the Huawei P30 with a triple rear camera setup with 40MP + 16MP (ultra-wide angle) + 8MP (telephoto) sensors.

"We're going to completely rewrite the rules of smartphone photography, and we can do this because we own the complete ecosystem within the smartphone".

Huawei is once again banking heavily on the camera aspect of the new phones.

Mueller Report About To Drop; Trump: 'Let People See It'
President Donald Trump talks to reporters as he departs on travel to OH at the White House in Washington, U.S., March 20, 2019. Gohmert said that with all things considered, Trump is correct to want the entire Mueller dossier released to the public.

The cameras of the latest P30-series smartphones come with a Huawei AI HDR+ mode that enables the front and rear cameras to combine multiple photos taken in quick succession. The Huawei P30 Pro will come with a 6.47-inch full-HD+ (1080x2340 pixels) OLED display with curved edges and a waterdrop notch.

The P30 Pro has a 6.47-inch OLED display with an in-screen fingerprint sensor. Powered is provided by a 4,200mAh battery that features 40W Huawei Supercharge, which can charge the phone from 0 to 70 percent in just 15 minutes. In addition to eight CPU cores, the Kirin 980 also packs two neural processing units (NPUs) to help in machine learning tasks, including faster image recognition. The next best items on the list are the Samsung Galaxy S10+ and Huawei's Mate 20 Pro and P20 Pro. On the Pro you get a 5x optical zoom which doubles to an effective 10x using Huawei's hybrid system which uses information from the main 40Mp sensor as well as the 8Mp telephoto camera. Mechanical optical image stabilisation has been introduced to both the standard lens, and the 5x optical zoom lens - which should be very useful for keeping those longer length shots sharp, as well as keeping 4K video stabilised for the first time. If you've been following the many rumours and leaks you'll be pretty familiar with the pair already, but for those who haven't here's what you need to know. Both handsets include a new SuperSpectrum lens for better low-light photos, and the P30 Pro features a periscope lens that uses a prism for near-lossless images at up to 10X zoom.

It's the fourth year of Huawei's partnership with German camera-maker Leica that started with 2016's P9 series.

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