Newly released for summer 2020, the Huawei P30 Pro New Edition boasts a whole host of exciting new features. From the Leica quad camera system to the EMUI 10.1 operating system, and Huawei’s first ever smart assistant, Celia, this smartphone is an upgrade you won’t regret.
1 - Design and Display
The Huawei P30 Pro New Edition has a sleek, subtle design. The Silver Frost finish is fitted with an anti-fingerprint coating, and 9 layers of nano-optical colour have been applied to the smartphone’s body for extra durability. This, combined with an IP68 rating, makes the handset as tough as it is stylish, as it can withstand water up to 1.5m deep for 30 minutes.
On the front of the handset, the 6.47-inch OLED display stretches smoothly across the curved glass body. Bezels are barely-there, with a screen-to-body ratio of 88.6%, and the only interruption is the dewdrop notch that houses the 32MP front camera. The Full HD+ resolution promises an excellent viewing experience, and 16.7 million colours that’ll breathe new life into your favourite shows, games and even your photography.
2 - Leica Quad Camera System
The Huawei P30 Pro New Edition is home to a sophisticated Leica Quad Camera System. This quad-lens rear camera is comprised of one 40MP wide angle lens, a 20MP ultra-wide-angle lens for those glorious landscape shots, an 8MP telephoto lens and a Huawei Time-of-Flight camera, which can measure depth with startling accuracy.
This combination of high-end hardware enables plenty of fun photography features, including Super Night Mode, which uses the SuperSpectrum sensor to help you shoot stunning, distinct images in the lowest lights – a setting which is also available on the front camera. AI HDR+ can be turned on to dial down the background brightness in shots which are overexposed, and with the Time-of-Flight lens, you’ll be able to capture beautiful portraits with a professional-grade bokeh effect too.
Leica technology makes this smartphone ideal for photography buffs and are a range of settings to explore. Activate AIS Long Exposure Shot and you’ll be able to capture truly extraordinary images of the natural world, blurring rivers and headlights into soft, artistic trails. If you favour a closeup, you can take crystal clear shots from just 2.5cm away with the 8MP macro lens on board, which can achieve 50x zoom.
3 - EMUI 10.1 Operating System
The P30 Pro New Edition arrives with EMUI 10.1 out of the box – a brand-exclusive operating system. EMUI 10.1 has several exciting features of its own to add, including MeeTime, a brand-new video call app that promises improved connectivity and a more flexible way to stay in touch with friends and family. MeeTime also has a Screen Sharing mode, so you can share the screen while you’re on a video call – making it easy to show your family a photo album or YouTube video.
This operating system also puts user experience front-and-centre; Multi-Window technology allows you to have two different apps open simultaneously, so there’s no need to flick between a recipe and your shopping list. EMUI 10.1 also comes with the addition of Huawei Wireless Sharing – a way to quickly share images, videos and more with other Huawei smartphones, without requiring WiFi or data.
4 - Celia Smart Assistant
Huawei’s first ever smart assistant, Celia, is fully integrated, and ready to use from the moment you turn this handset on. Like most smart assistants, Celia has got your everyday tasks covered; from setting reminders, to organising meetings and composing texts – it can even hit the shutter button for you when you take a selfie.
As well as making day-to-day organisation easy, Celia is multilingual, and can help you navigate a foreign language with integrated translation technology. Say “Hey Celia, open face-to-face translation” and the handset will listen to what’s being said and translate it back into your native language – but this works both ways, so your words can be translated too. Celia also has expert object recognition software built-in: point your phone at a plant and ask, “Hey Celia, what flower is this?” to find out more, or take a photo of your meal and your smart assistant can even give you the nutritional information.
5 - 15W Wireless Quick Charge
There's no need to plug in your P30 Pro New Edition if you need to power up – this smartphone comes with the capacity for 15W Wireless Quick Charge, providing you pair it with a Qi certified wireless charger (sold separately).
It’s easy to operate – just place your handset with the rear facing downwards in the centre of the charger’s circular surface and your phone will start charging, with no wires or cables. Charging up in a hurry? The phone has the ability regain up to 70% of power in just 30 minutes with the 40W SuperCharge (also sold separately).
