Huawei is a leading global provider of information and communications technology (ICT) infrastructure and smart devices. Huawei’s first Android smartphone, the U8220, was unveiled in MWC 2009. Three years ago, they launched the Huawei P9. A year ago, the Android smartphone market finally got some real competition when Huawei’s P20 Pro arrived. The Huawei P20 Pro was the first smartphone to have a triple-lens camera on the rear. Huawei announced the P30 and P30 Pro with 4 cameras on March 26 at an event in Paris.

The Huawei P30 Pro mobile features a 6.47-inch Curved OLED 19.5:9, FHD+ 2340×1080 pixels. The Huawei P30 and P30 Pro also feature a teardrop-shaped notch. Underneath the display is a new and improved fingerprint scanner and it’s as fast as the Samsung Galaxy S10. The acoustic display acts as the earpiece when making or receiving phone calls.


The smartphones run on the latest EMUI 9.1 based on Android Pie operating system. The smartphone is powered by Octa-core (2×2.6 GHz Cortex-A76 & 2×1.92 GHz Cortex-A76 & 4×1.8 GHz Cortex-A55) processor with 8GB of RAM. It comes with 128GB of inbuilt storage which can be expanded via micro-SD card up to 512GB. It has GPU turbo 2.1 which optimizes performance. The other good news is the P30 Pro is IP68-rated for dust and water resistance. It also comes with IR blaster (my personal favorite) which enables the smartphone to act as a remote control for Tv, A.C, etc. Internally, Huawei’s phones are running the latest available tech to ensure they’re as fast and fluid as can be.


The Huawei P30 and P30 Pro come with a Non-removable Li-Po 3650 mAh battery and Non-removable Li-Po 4200 mAh battery respectively. Huawei P30 Pro has a larger battery and supports both wireless and reverse wireless charging as well as fast battery charging (70% in 30 min). The smartphone has a Single SIM (Nano-SIM) or Hybrid Dual SIM (Nano-SIM, dual stand-by).


Huawei devices are known to have some of the best cameras in the business. They both come with four cameras (three rear cameras, and one front camera). The Huawei P30 Pro’s camera options give it an edge over the Huawei P30. The Pro has 50 times zoom which enables it to really zoom into objects. The camera package is one of the biggest reasons to buy P30 Pro. Rumors have it that they’re working on a duo video capture feature which allows you to capture video using two cameras simultaneously and it will be available via over the air update coming very soon.


The design is one of the most important factors when it comes to mobiles. The P30 series is a nice evolution of last year’s phones. It has a dual-glass with metal frame body. The glass back comes in striking colors, and the notch is smaller than ever. The Huawei P30 has a flat display similar to the Samsung Galaxy S10e while the Huawei P30 pro has curved display.


As we all know that most devices these days come with a pro version with differences such as larger screen size, battery, and memory. So, the differences between the Huawei P30 and the P30 Pro follows suit. In no particular order, here are the differences:

  • The Huawei P30’s display size is 6.1 inches, 91.3 cm2 (~85.8% screen-to-body ratio) while the P30 Pro is 6.47 inches, 102.8 cm2 (~88.6% screen-to-body ratio).
  • Huawei P30 has a 3650 mAh fast charging battery while the P30 Pro has a 4200 mAh faster-charging battery (70% in 30 mins) with wireless and reverse wireless charging.
  • The Huawei P30 has IP53 dust and splash protection while the P30 Pro has IP68 dust/water resistant (up to 2m for 30 mins).
  • The Huawei P30 Pro has a better camera setup than the Huawei P30.
  • Huawei P30 has a flat display while the Huawei P30 Pro is curved.
  • The Huawei P30 has 3.5mm headphone jack while the Huawei P30 Pro doesn’t.
Huawei unveils that you can use the Huawei P30 Pro’s camera as a measuring tool with its AR technology.
