The Huawei P30 Pro is expected to have a potential lens with 10x hybrid zoom capability.

Both the P30 and P30 Pro smartphones are expected to run on HiSilicon's 7nm Kirin 980 octa-core processor under the hood. Then there also are two options for the P30 Pro in the form of 128 GB and 256 GB of internal storage. But it turns out that at least one photo was taken with a DSLR camera, rather than the new P30 Pro. This has happened for the second time as the company was found using images that are not clicked by Huawei Mate 20 Pro, to showcase the selfie feature of the handset previous year.

Huawei has today officially launched its newest wearable, Huawei Watch GT, at an event in New Delhi, India. More specifically, along the bottom of the smartphone sits a USB Type-C port which is combined with a bottom-firing speaker to one side and a microphone to the other.

According to a new report from The Verge, new marketing material for Huawei's upcoming P30 Pro smartphone has been caught trying to pass stock images as photos taken by the product's camera. More importantly, the P30 Pro's periscope camera was already confirmed - that's the kind of tech that will support even better zoom than competing flagships. The smartwatches that the company will bring besides the P30 smartphones later in March are the Huawei Watch GT Active and the Watch GT Elegant.


Huawei made a splash in February with its foldable Mate X phone. The larger panel of the P30 Pro appears to curve around the long edges o the device, with the phone lacking a physical home button and conventional fingerprint reader.

It shows a smartphone carrying a triple camera module in the top-center position, with sensors arranged horizontally, along with an LED flash and laser autofocus.

First and foremost, the new Chinese device is expected to come with four cameras on its rear compared to the three now present on the P20 Pro.

In August 2018, it posted a 30-second ad on Instagram featuring a couple taking selfies, presumably with a Nova 3 but the photos were actually taken with a DSLR camera.
