You will find that the P30 Pro has three major upgrades over its smaller sibling. The first one being its larger 6.47-inch Full HD+ OLED screen.

It is a thing of beauty with the double 3D curved glass body making it a piece of art. The Dewdrop display brings stunning colours and greater viewing pleasure. It is also splendid to look at by drawing inspiration from the miraculous sky, that mirrors the transfixing colour of light and space. Witness the beauty of rosy dawn, mid-day sky, the mysterious Aurora and the darkness of night. With the IP68 certification, you can be sure of the right protection at the right time.

Perhaps the best part of all about the P30 Pro is on its camera department. Here we can find the Leica Quad Camera System that accommodates your photography to help see the world in its entirety. Be mesmerised with the 40MP + 20MP + Periscope 8MP + TOF 3D camera, it can bring the moon right before your eyes with up to 50x zoom. Then there’s the 32MP selfie camera that can intelligently recognise you to produce expert selfies by contouring your face with perfect brightness and sharpness. Your selfies will glow with stunning detail, even in overexposed backlight or during a night party.

Storage-wise, the P30 Pro starts with a minimum of 128GB of internal storage up to 512GB. Even then, there’s a maximum of 256GB that can be added via the microSD expansion slot.

For audio lovers, the Dolby Atmos sound system will surely brighten up your time with the P30 Pro as you sit back and relax. Instead of a traditional top-front speaker, it uses HUAWEI Acoustic Display Technology to provide a larger display and increased hearing area. The electromagnetic sound levitation will project sound from the vibrations in the display to your ear.

With a 4200 mAh battery powering up the P30 Pro, you won’t have to worry about running out of battery anytime soon. Even then, there’s the fast battery charging feature that takes it up 70% in just 30 minutes.

Conclusion:

Huawei P30 Pro is for those looking for the absolute best in everything, as it seems to be the perfect smartphone for now. Stunningly good looks, absolute best in performance, camera and everything else in between. The only issue is whether you have the money to match the amazing value that it has to offer.

Huawei P30 Pro had just been released for 899 Pound or ~1,179 USD for the 6GB RAM+ 128GB internal storage variant and 1,019 Pound or ~1,439 USD for the 8GB RAM + 512GB internal storage variant.
