Huawei P30 Pro sneaky videos leak, release dates in tow

If the Huawei P30 Pro was meant to be a surprise, someone messed up. Huawei's next massive thriller of a smartphone's been leaked today in the form of a couple videos and photos, too. The Huawei P30 Pro looks to confirm rumored specifications like a 6.47-inch display, or for the non-Pro model a 6.1-inch display. Both devices have Android 9 Pie, almost certainly, and HuSilicon Kirin 980 7nm processors with Octa-core (2x2.6 GHz Cortex-A76 & 2x1.92 GHz Cortex-A76 & 4x1.8 GHz Cortex-A55) CPU and Mali-G76 MP10 GPU.

The differences between the Huawei P30 and P30 Pro, as rumored thus far, are actually pretty significant. It's been tipped that the P30 has a flatter display with a bezel around the edge, while the Pro has a display similar to that of a Galaxy S8 or Note, with cascading left and right sides. Both devices have a single front-facing camera with a half-circle notch.

The new Huawei P30 Pro was tipped to come with a 6.47-inch display, which is larger than the Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus, which has a 6.4-inch display. The Galaxy S10 Plus has an AMOLED display with more pixels than its new competitor, with 1440 x 3040 pixels on its panel making a 522 PPI pixel density. The Huawei P30 Pro has just 1080 x 2340 pixels giving it a 398 PPI pixel density.

The Huawei P30 was shown in a video and tipped to come with a set of three cameras on its back, including a 40 MP camera with f/1.8 aperture and 27mm (wide) lens, a 16 MP camera with f/2.2 aperture and 16mm (ultrawide) lens, and a 8 MP camera with f/2.4 aperture and 80mm (telephoto) lens. The Pro model is said to come with a sort-of similar setup, but with better bits on every lens, plus TOF.

The Huawei P30 Pro was tipped to have the following cameras:

• 40 MP, f/1.6, (wide), 1/1.7", PDAF/Laser AF, OIS

• 20 MP, f/2.2, 16mm (ultrawide), 1/2.7", PDAF/Laser AF

• 8 MP (Periscopic), f/3.4, 80mm (telephoto), 1/4", 5x optical zoom, OIS, PDAF/Laser AF

• TOF 3D scanner camera

Both models are tipped to come with 32MP cameras up front with f/2.0 aperture and HDR video capture at 1080p at 30fps. Headphone jack business is a little strange – the non-pro is tipped to come with a headphone jack, but the Pro model is NOT sporting a headphone jack, as the leaked video tips – though that seems overly strange, don't you think?

Pricing on the Huawei P30 Pro was rumored in recent weeks to be almost exactly that of the Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus – give or take a hundred dollars. That means approximately $1000 or $1100 in total. The Pro model is likely coming in Black, Ice White, Aurora Blue, and Sunrise Red. The non-pro model was tipped to roll in Twilight, Black, Midnight Blue, and Pink Gold.

The reveal date for these devices is almost certainly March 26, 2019. There's an event set for Paris, France, the most fanciest of locations to reveal a new smartphone. The release date for the Huawei P30 and P30 Pro is rumored to be Friday, April 5th, 2019, inside the UK. We'll likely see this set of phones released internationally soon thereafter.
