The Chinese electronic tech giant, Huawei has released a new update for its flagship device – the Huawei P30 Pro. The new update comes with new features, bug fixes and improvements. It is the second software update which the new smartphone is getting after it was launched earlier this year. This update brings features such as dual perspective camera and a powerful AR measurement tool to the P30 Pro. With it, Huawei wishes to enrich its user experience. The Huawei P30 Pro comes with a quad-camera setup and currently it is one of the best camera smartphone in the market and now with the new update its camera can be used for other purposes as well.
The new update is 570MB in size and it is currently being rolled out through an OTA update. Although all the users of the Huawei P30 Pro should get the new update but if they hadn’t received the notification then they can manually check for it. The users of the Huawei P30 Pro can update by going to Settings and then to System. From there they would need to go to Software Update and then click on Check for Updates. After that the Huawei P30 Pro will start looking for the latest version of the software.
Once the smartphone finishes downloading, the users can update their device to the new version of the OS. But it should be noted that the battery should be at least at 30% to update it successfully.
The new UI brings the AR Measure tool to the Huawei P30 Pro which can be used to measure the world around you. This feature uses the ToF camera of the P30 Pro and using AR technology it measures the distance between two points the user selects. Not only can it be used to measure the length or the lines but area and volume of surfaces and objects as well. The AR Measure tool can also measure a person’s height. And according to Huawei, the margin of error in the measurement is around 1% only which makes it almost accurate.
The other feature which the new update brings is the Dual-View Video feature which uses multiple cameras at once to shoot videos. It enables the users to shoot the video from different angles at once. In other words, when one camera of the Huawei P30 Pro shoots a wide angle shot, the other can shoot a close-up shot of the same scene. The users can freely adjust the level of magnification as well. The Dual-View Video feature can be useful when capturing the large-scale events such as sports event or concerts.
