- Huawei P30, the smallest in the literal sense of the two Huawei flagships, officially presented at an event held in Paris, is equipped with a 6.1-inch FullHD + (1080 x 2340 pixel) OLED screen, with a 19.5: 9 form factor. Below the body, protected on both sides by a glass, we find a HiSilicon Kirin 980 SoC, with octa core CPU (2 Cortex-A76 at 2.6 GHz, 2 Cortex-A76 cores at 1.92 GHZ and 4 Cortex cores- A55 at 1.8 GHz) accompanied by a Mali-G76MP10 and dual NPU GPU. There is only one version, equipped with 6 GB of LPDDR4X RAM and 128 GB of UFS 2.1 internal memory, expandable with nanoSD up to 256 GB.
Connectivity includes 4G / VoLTE support (Cat.16), WiFi 802.11 ac dual band. Bluetooth 5.0, GPS, GLONASS, GALILEO, NFC, dual SIM, 3.5mm jack plug and USB Type-C 3.1 connector for battery charging. The latter has a capacity of 3,650 mAh, supports wired charging at 22.5 W but does not have wireless charging.
There is also the photographic sector, the real highlight of the new Huawei top range. The “normal” P30 model can count on a triple rear camera, made in collaboration with Leica, and a single front camera. On the back of the smartphone we find a 40 megapixel main sensor with f / 1.8 focal length, without optical stabilization, a 16 megapixel wide-angle sensor with f / 2.2 aperture and a 3X optical zoom sensor, 5X hybrid and 8-megapixel digital 30x with opening f / 2.4.
The equipment is completed by a fingerprint reader located below the screen. Three colors officially planned in our country: Breathing Crystal, Aurora and Black. The dimensions are 149.1 x 71.36 x 7.57 millimeters and weighs 165 grams.
More compact, Huawei P30, (thanks to the 6.1-inch screen) is much smaller and with a slightly higher ergonomics. No curved screen on the sides for the normal model, a choice already implemented last fall with the Mate 20 series. It should be noted that both the lower part and the upper part of the smartphone are completely flat, allowing it to be placed on a table without it falling over.
