Huawei recently launched its photographic centric flagship smartphones, Mate 20 Pro and Mate 20. Prior to that, the company launched its Huawei P20 Pro smartphone earlier this year, which came with a triple rear camera setup and is aimed at photographers. And now, reports have emerged that claim that Huawei is working on its P30 series.
Huawei P30 series will reportedly come with P30 and P30 Pro models and is expected to be launched either at Mobile World Congress in February 2019 or at a special event in March next year. It has also been said that Huawei will continue to focus on smartphones with powerful cameras with its P30 smartphones. According to renowned tipster Evan Blass, Huawei P30 will be another camera-centric device.
The Huawei P30 promises to be another imaging powerhouse, according to someone who's seen one: triple rear camera, with a maximum resolution of 40MP and 5x lossless zoom, plus a 24MP selfie cam. And this isn't even the Pro variant.

The smartphone will reportedly sport a triple rear camera setup that will come with a 40MP sensor and 5x lossless zoom. Huawei P30 series’ predecessor smartphones — P20 and P20 Pro — came with a dual rear camera setup and a triple rear camera setup respectively. However, in the P30 series, Huawei will be adding an additional camera to both smartphones.
What adds more credibility to these reports is that Olixar has already started taking orders for Huawei P30 Pro cases which also hint towards at vertically stacked quad camera being present on the device. The new reports claim that P30 smartphone feature triple rear cameras and P30 Pro will sport quad cameras. Blass has also said that Huawei P30, on the other hand, will come with a 24MP selfie camera, much like Mate 20 Pro.
In another tweet, Mishaal Rahman of XDA Developers tweeted quoting his sources that Huawei P30 Pro will come with 10x lossless zoom. It is worth noticing that Huawei’s Mate 20 Pro smartphone supports lossless zoom. While the smartphone has a focal length ranging from 16mm to 270mm, it supports lossless zoom only up to a focal length of 135mm.
The Chinese smartphone is expected to add a lossless zoom at a focal length of 270mm to Huawei P30 Pro. By doing this, Huawei’s P30 Pro may leave DSLR photography behind.
