What to expect

Huawei is expected to keep pushing what's possible with smartphone cameras in the upcoming Huawei P30 Pro. Here's what we know so far.


Huawei P30 Pro at a glance
When will the Huawei P30 Pro come out? Expected launch in February 2019 with availability around March/April 2019
What's new about the Huawei P30 Pro? 3-4 rear cameras, teardrop display, Kirin 990 processor
How much will the Huawei P30 Pro cost? Expected around $1,000

Huawei's next premium smartphone is shaping up to be an exceptional camera phone.

Huawei has two primary flagship phone lines, with the more productivity-centric Mate series typically launching later in the year. The first half of the year belongs to its style-centric P-series phones. In 2018, that saw the release of the Huawei P20 Pro, an exceptional camera phone that was really only bested by the release of the Huawei Mate 20 Pro later in the year.

That sets a very high bar for the Huawei P30 and Huawei P30 Pro to leap over. While there's only a small quantity of rumours swirling around now, they do serve to suggest where Huawei's going to pitch its next premium flagship.

Design

  • Teardrop display
  • In-display fingerprint sensor likely on the P30 Pro

Camera

  • 3 or maybe 4 cameras
  • Rumours suggest 38MP primary sensor
  • Possible larger sensor size

Performance

  • Kirin 980 processor expected
  • Will Huawei continue its nano memory experiment?

Battery life

  • No solid rumours yet about capacity
  • Wireless and wired charging expected
  • Reverse wireless charging likely

Early outlook

  • Price and style will be key to the P30 Pro's success

Pricing and availability

  • The Huawei P30 Pro is expected to launch in February 2019
  • Expect pricing around the $1,000 mark

Huawei launched the Huawei P20 Pro in February 2018, and yearly release cycles make a lot of sense to hook in buyers of earlier phones, especially those on contract. There's no official word from Huawei as to when it will launch the Huawei P30 Pro as yet, but rumours do point to February being the month when it will officially reveal it to the world.
