Huawei recently made a wise decision to skip on MWC for its upcoming P30 flagship smartphones, choosing instead to focus entirely on themselves at their own event in March. The invite to the event hinted that one of the main features of the handsets would be lossless zoom, a feature of which seems to have been confirmed.
This is according to a series of photos shared on Weibo by Huawei product manager Bruce Lee, where he shared some sample photos of the lossless zoom capabilities of the company’s upcoming flagship smartphone. We’re not sure if these photos were taken by the P30 or the P30 Pro, but regardless, the ability to retain details while zoomed in looks pretty impressive.
Early rumors of the P30 series claimed that it might have 5x zoom, but now a post from WinFuture.de claims 10x zoom instead. It is possible that 5x zoom could be a feature in the P30 while 10x zoom could be for the P30 Pro, the higher-end of the two models. The post also shared new renders of the upcoming handset where from what we can tell, it seems that Huawei will be sticking with that iridescent finish on the back similar to last year’s models.
What makes this particular rumor interesting is that at MWC 2019, Oppo showed off their 10x lossless zoom tech which was mighty impressive, but Huawei’s upcoming P30 series could end up being a worthy challenger. We’ll definitely need to check the devices out for ourselves to get a better idea, but for now, color us impressed.
