Huawei is gearing up to launch its next-generation P-series flagship smartphones — Huawei P40 lineup at a launch event in March this year. Now, ahead of the launch of these phones, the P30 Pro has received a price cut in China.
The Huawei P30 Pro 8GB RAM and 256GB storage model is now available for a price of 4,088 yuan which is roughly $589. When launched in April last year, this particular variant was priced at 5,998 Yuan (~$893).
Coming to the specifications, the Huawei P30 Pro flagship phone sports a premium design with glass panels on both side and a metallic frame in between. It features a 6.47-inch curved OLED Full HD+ display, has in-screen fingerprint reader, and can emit sound through the display of the phone.
Under the hood, the device is powered by 7nm Kirin 980 SoC coupled with 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of internal storage. The phone features a 40-megapixel main sensor along with 20-megapixel ultra wide-angle lens and an 8-megapixel tertiary sensor.
On the front side, there’s a 32-megapixel selfie shooter. It runs Android 9 Pie OS out-of-the-box and is powered by a 4,200mAh battery and comes with 40W SuperCharge fast charging support.
As for its successor, reports indicate that the Huawei P40 Pro will come with a 40MP Cine (ultrawide) camera with a 1/1.5” sensor size which will be paired with a 52MP main camera having a 1/1.3” sensor size. Rather than a telephoto camera, Huawei is going with a periscope zoom lens like that of the Huawei P30 Pro. This will offer more optical zoom, at least 5x, and of course more digital zoom. Further, it is said that the device will also comes with a 3D ToF camera.
Recently, it was revealed that the Chinese giant is planning to launch three P-series flagship smartphones — P40, P40 Pro, and P40 Pro Premium. The major factor of differentiation between the phones will be the rear camera setup.
While the P40 Pro will come with four camera sensor on the back panel, the Pro Premium variant is said to feature a penta-camera setup. As for the other specs, the smartphones are expected to come powered by the company’s own Kirin 990 flagship processor with support for 5G connectivity.
