The upcoming Huawei P30 Pro Australia is one of the most anticipated smartphones in 2019, and for some reason, a whole hype is being built. In the first quarter of 2018, when Huawei P20 Pro was launched, both buyers and critics were impressed. The handset set three rear cameras trend which is now being followed by Samsung and a plethora of other smartphone manufacturers. Now, rumors circulating around suggesting that P30 Pro will be equipped with four rear cameras that means it’s bigger and making a dream come true for shutterbugs.
Well, Samsung has focused a lot more on screens whereas Apple is keeping focusing on smartphones’ notches – Huawei has focused on handset’s overall design, performance, and battery life. Indeed, Huawei succeeded in 2018 and that’s exactly what we are expecting from Huawei P30 Pro after an official availability. Ahead of its official launch, we have rounded up all Huawei P30 Pro Rumours and Leaks here on this single page, so let’s keep going!
In a past couple of years, Huawei released its “P” series smartphones in February or March. Huawei, in a tweet on February 18, confirmed that it’s going to hold an event on Tuesday, March 26 in Paris. And it’s most likely that it’s an official Huawei P30 Pro Release Date in Australia.
If it’s to be believed, you need not to wait too long to get your hands on one – but don’t know an exact on-sale date. Chances are, Huawei will release its foldable smartphone which is named Huawei Mate X before releasing P30 Pro.
In terms of Huawei P30 Pro Price in Australia, we are going by past experience. The last year’s Huawei P20 Pro landed at AU$1299– and P10 at AU$999. Even Huawei’s most recently released smartphone Huawei Mate 20 Pro set users back AU$1599.
Therefore, you should make your mind to spend at least AU$1599 or a little higher. The P30 Pro is expected to be an expensive flagship as it’ll have cheaper, less powerful siblings in P30 and P30 Lite.
A couple of weeks back, we have already had our first real glimpse of Huawei's upcoming P30 Pro. The image shared by SlashLeaks seems to indicate three rear cameras with a fourth lens and flash to its side. Based on the image, shared by SlaskLeaks, looks like P30 Pro's back is Blue or Black, but you can't say that for sure. However, a number of reports from the WinFuture (a German website) give you a slightly better impression of the appearance of the P30 Pro if you don’t mind interrupting your suspicion. As always, shared pictures are just a suggestion of what the new P30 Pro might look like rather than a confirmation.
The images support the four-faced camera theory and the fourth sensor is hidden under the flash on the right side of the main snapper column. They also reveal a U-shaped teardrop and an edge-to-edge screen. WinFuture also points out something unusual - the pictures show that the top and bottom of the P30 Pro are flattened completely so that, in theory, the handset can stand on a flat surface upright. The pictures in WinFuture seem to confirm this strange feature if you look closely, but it remains unclear whether or not this function is to be applied in practice.
A GSMArena article states that a 6.5-inch OLED screen will be available on Huawei P30 Pro in Australia, and recent renders show a waterdrop-like notch, which is even hotter than a small indent of P20 Pro. This information could also be corroborated by the leaked image of three P30 screen protectors by GSMArena.
A camera is always a standout feature on all P-Series smartphones and last year’s P20 Pro set a bar for others like Samsung, Apple, Oppo and Vivo to beat in 2018. The Huawei P30 Pro is most likely to be landed with another camera lens outback – taking it from three to four.
According to Huawei Europe Boss Walter Ji,
“We will definitely see more innovation in a camera this year. For now, we have three, imagine four this year”.
He also commented on a higher zoom ability, potentially up to 10x, and the dramatic zoom effects strongly suggest this will be part of camera functionality - shared online in the first official teaser video. Perhaps, the additional lens wouldn’t be used for photography. It'll, however, be used as a Time-of-Flight sensor for AR/VR mapping. The P30 has now been linked with Sony - and based on Huawei P30 Pro Rumours, it may use the forthcoming IMX 607 sensor - which is expected to add a 38MP sensor to the handset. Huawei's Nova 4 and Honor View 20 both devices are already using Sony IMX586 48MP sensors.
The Huawei P30 Pro Leaks appear excellent but the design is not entirely completed unless it has strong hardware requirements. According to how Huawei has managed processors in the past, a HiSilicon Kirin 980 processor is comfortable to claim to be used. The Mate 20 Pro is already using the same flagship processor. Huawei has been using the same chipset as it launched the previously launched Mate series.
Kirin 980 is a powerful chipset that is worth using in 2019 because it can keep the flagship smartphone zip at all times without any problems. Huawei is expected to use the EMUI 9.0 as a skin over the Android P operating system. Obviously, the handset should be on the latest operating system and should be upgraded at least one more time, given that people spend money buying the best smartphone the year.
We are not exactly sure how much powerful Huawei P30 Pro’s battery will be. However, if P20 Pro’s 4000mAh battery is anything to go by, expecting something big won’t be wrong. Huawei P30 Pro Rumours have suggested that it’ll be equipped with 22.5W charging in spite of the 40W upgrade that Mate 20 Pro got back in 2018.
