Huawei P30 Pro Hands-On by Engadget

What?! Another phone from Huawei already? Meet the P30 Pro.

ince it first partnered with Leica on the P9, Huawei has focused ondelivering unique cameras on its flagships. With the P30 and P30 Pro, the company continues that tradition by serving up a four-camera setup with an intriguing new sensor that promises vastly improved performance in low light.

The four cameras on the P30 Pro are a 40-megapixel Super Spectrum sensor, an ultra-wide 20-megapixel one, a so-called “Periscope zoom” setup that offers 5x optical zoom, as well as a time of flight depth-sensing camera.

In fact, the new flagships felt remarkably swift during my hands-on. The Kirin 980 chipset with 6GB of RAM is a beefy combination, but Huawei also worked to improve its EMUI 9.1 software overlay on top of Android 9 Pie. The company said it tweaked its software so that launching an app is now 52 percent faster than before, while the response time of a tap is now 69 percent faster.

The P30 and P30 Pro seem like they have a lot to offer. They’re powerful, attractive flagships with versatile cameras and some unique features. In the UK, at least, the P30 Pro is priced at £899 for 128GB model, or £1099 for the 512GB model, while the P30 will cost £699 at launch.
