Last year we saw some phones adopt the use of in-display fingerprint technology, and the Huawei Mate 20 series was one of the phones that used it. Now if the latest rumors from China are to be believed, Huawei is expected to continue that “tradition” of using in-display sensors for its upcoming Huawei P30 series.
The Huawei P30 series will be the company’s first flagship phones for the start of the year, and as such it probably doesn’t come as a surprise that it would continue to take advantage of such technology. There was a leak from earlier this month of the alleged Huawei P30 in which there was no external fingerprint sensor to be found, suggesting that Huawei could indeed be continuing to use an in-display sensor, and this report backs it up.
In addition to an in-display sensor, the report also claims that the Huawei P30 will adopt the triple camera setup similar to that of the Huawei Mate 20 Pro, and that the P30 Pro will be featuring the use of a periscope-style rear imaging hardware that is said to be capable of lossless optical zoom.
Zoom seems to be something that quite a few smartphone makers are aiming for this year, where Oppo had hinted that they might have a smartphone with 10x optical zoom in the works. Not much else is known about the P30 or P30 Pro right now, but it’s probably safe to assume that it will be using the latest Kirin 980 SoC along with 6-8GB of RAM and run on Android 9.0 Pie.
