Dubbed the Supercamera Phone, the Huawei P30 Pro packs one of the most advanced camera features that a smartphone available today has to offer.

Huawei has decided to use a RYYB (Red-Yellow-Yellow-Blue) sensor in the P30 Pro. That’s because Yellow sensors can absorb twice as much light as their Green counterparts, which means they can gather a lot more information with every press of the shutter button.

The 6.47-inch device comes in Breathing Crystal, Amber Sunrise, Aurora, Pearl White and Black. The FHD+ (2340×1080) Dewdrop Display features a tiny notch, providing maximum display area. The P30 Pro also features Huawei Acoustic Display Technology that enables it to deliver high-quality audio through a sound emitting display.

The real star here though is the cameras, the triple-camera setup includes a 40MP primary camera with a Huawei SuperSpectrum Sensor, a 20MP ultra-wide angle camera, a 32MP front camera, an 8MP telephoto camera fitted with a SuperZoom Lens and a Huawei ToF Camera. The all-new sensor, lens arrangement, image signal processor (ISP) and neural processing unit (NPU). There are a lot of draws to this setup, but the biggest one is easily the zooming capabilities.

Photographs taken using the device are very sharp and burst with vibrant colours.

One feature that stands out about the P30 Pro camera is the massive zoom lens. This SuperZoom lens enables users a 5x optical zoom, 10x hybrid zoom and an unprecedented 50x digital zoom that can bring even the farthest objects up close. Huawei uses AI to detect what is in the photo and enhance and sharpen any details that may have been lost in the digital zoom.

Huawei is using a quadruple-camera system that combines a 40-megapixel f/1.6 wide-angle camera with Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS), a 20-megapixel ultra-wide sensor, an 8-megapixel telephoto sensor, and a Time Of Flight (ToF) lens with a flood illuminator.
In addition to the all-new zoom system, the P30 Pro features an upgraded bokeh mode. Super-resolution generates an image with 54mm equivalent focal length and good detail rendering.

The images below show how far the device can zoom:

The Huawei Time of Flight (ToF) camera is designed to measure the depth of field for beautiful portrait shots with blurred backgrounds and sharp foregrounds.

Selfie camera
The P30 Pro boasts a 32-megapixel selfie camera in the tiny dewdrop notch around the front of the handset.

Capture images in the dark with Night Mode
The Huawei P30 Pro’s Night Mode stabilizes pictures with the help of AI Image Stabilization and Optical Image Stabilization. The device also takes advantage of the SuperSpectrum sensor which brings in more light and supports ISO levels up to 409,600. This makes it easier to take pictures and shoot videos even in dark conditions without having to compromise on details and clarity.

Pictures taken in dark rooms look like they were taken in the light. P30 Pro’s low-light performance is unmatched.

Overall the device takes incredible pictures when compared to some of its competitors. Huawei has outdone itself with the P30 Pro, this device is perfect for anyone looking to start a career as an amateur photographer and videographer.

The smartphone, however, is far more than just a picture-taking powerhouse. It packs an in-screen fingerprint scanner, a pin and biometric security method that uses the 32-megapixel front camera which makes it a secure phone to own.
