OFFICIAL-LOOKING RENDERS of the Huawei P30 Pro have surfaced online ahead of its grand unveiling next month.
The array is more unusual than that found on Samsung's flagship, though; the three main cameras (are aligned vertically on the device, while a smaller fourth sensor sits to the side, underneath the LED flash module. This oddly-positioned lens is likely a time of flight (ToF) sensor, which can be used for depth-of-field detection and potentially 3D mapping capabilities.
WinFuture also claims that one of the four cameras will offer 10x optical zoom, which ties in with Huawei's official teaser (below) which all-but-confirms that the camera on its next flagship will offer souped-up zooming capabilities.
The front of the P30 Pro is a much more run-of-the-mill affair; you'll find a waterdrop notch housing a front-facing camera, a 2.5D curved OLED panel with an optical fingerprint scanner built-in, and barely-there bezels.
The renders don't tell us much else about the flagship, but earlier rumours claim it'll pack Huawei's latest 7nm Kirin 980 processor, at least 6GB RAM, 128GB built-in storage and a USB-C port. It won't offer a headphone jack, according to WinFuture, though this will remain on the lesser-specced Huawei P30.
Huawei hasn't commented on the rumours, but all will be revealed on 26 March at its Paris launch event. µ
Some deliberately, others through stupidity
Quite the business expense
It's another quantum leap camera
Evolution, not revolution, but that's just fine
