Over 200 million. That’s the number of smartphones Chinese electronics giant Huawei sold globally in the past year, 16 million of which were in its high-end P20 series.
It’s an impressive metric by any measure, particularly considering that Samsung — the market leader — got about 300 million handsets out the door in the same time frame.
But for Huawei, it’s just the start: The company is targeting between 250 million and 260 million devices in 2019. And it’s betting its two new headlining devices will help it achieve that milestone.
Chinese telecommunications and consumer electronics manufacturer Huawei on Tuesday launched two industry-first, advanced camera smartphones — Huawei P30 and P30 Pro.
Huawei P30 Pro is the first smartphone to have a 5x periscope-like optical zoom and four cameras on the back.
The four rear-camera system on P30 Pro has:
- 20MP ultra-wide.
- 40MP wide-angle.
- 8MP 5X telephoto.
- ToF (time-of-flight) depth-sensing lens.
Huawei P30 has a “SuperSensing” 40MP Leica triple camera setup — 8MP telephoto, 16MP ultra-wide and 40MP wide-angle lens.
Both handsets come with a 32MP selfie camera
Both handsets come with a 32MP selfie camera. Huawei P30 and Huawei P30 Pro will be powered by the Kirin 980 SoC and will run Android Pie with an EMUI 9.1 custom skin on top.
Currently launched for the European and Chinese markets, the devices will come to India in April.
“The latest Huawei P30 series represents a breakthrough after decades of digital camera technology development that will rewrite the rules and reshape the perception that consumers have of mobile photography,” Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei Consumer Business Group, told the audience at a glittering launch event in Paris.
“Innovations such as the Huawei ‘SuperSpectrum Sensor’ and ‘SuperZoom Lens’ allow us to push the envelope of not just photography, but videography as well – a frontier long overdue for disruption,” Yu added.
Huawei P30 Pro will come with a 6.47-inch full-HD+ (1080×2340 pixels) OLED display with curved edges and a “water-drop” notch.
Huawei P30, on the other hand, will have a usual non-curved 6.1 inch display with a waterdrop notch and thin bezels.
4200mAh battery, Screen Fingerprint Reader and more!
Huawei P30 Pro will be packed with a 4200mAh battery. On the other hand, P30 will have a smaller 3,650mAh battery, screen fingerprint reader, will be water and dust resistant and will come in five colours (body).
“The Huawei P30 series will set the pace for the next several generations of smartphones,” said Yu.
The company has been looking to provide its customers with phones to rewrite the rules of photography, he said.
The Huawei P30 series is available in Europe with a starting price of 799 euros. The variants of P30 Pro have been priced at 999, 1,099 and 1,249 euros.
The Chinese company also unveiled smartwatches in new colours, wireless charging pads, a 12000mAh power bank and smart eyewear at the event.
They’re both veritable flagships, packing speedy 7nm processors, in-screen fingerprint sensors, and metal and glass exteriors.
And they boast upgrades in key areas, like photography — their camera sensors can shoot up to 5 times optical zoom.
