Huawei is hosting an event in Paris today to announce the new P30 series of flagships. The devices have been the focus of many leaks, one even coming from Huawei itself. Current rumors say that the P30 and P30 Pro will use Samsung-sourced 6.1-inch and 6.47-inch 1080p displays respectively along with a Kirin 980 processor, 6-8GB of RAM, and 128GB of base storage with more available for the P30 Pro.
The focus of these devices will be on the Leica camera setup, with both sharing a 40MP main sensor (with the Pro getting OIS). The P30 should get a 16MP wide angle camera and 8MP zoom camera with 5x hybrid zoom (this is likely the Mate 20 Pro’s 3x zoom lens). The P30 Pro steps up to a 20MP wide angle camera, 8MP zoom lens with 10x hybrid zoom, and a Time-of-Flight sensor.
We’ve also seen how the devices reportedly look, ruining most of the surprise of the official announcement. Nonetheless we hope Huawei has something in store for us, like potentially announcing a 10x hybrid zoom system. The Paris event begins at 9 AM Eastern or 6 AM Pacific and will be livestreamed to YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter.
