JOHANNESBURG – The Kyalami track in Johannesburg was meant for speedy supercars to race around the smooth surface and it was only fitting that Huawei South Africa chose it as the venue to unveil their new sleek products to the South African market, most notably, their new P series range.
Huawei unveiled the Huawei P30, a week after it was launched globally. The P series is well known for its innovations in photography and design, and its latest range looks like it will set the standard for the next generation of smartphones.
“Like its predecessors, the P30 series has superior photography and design hardwired into its DNA,” said Akhram Mohamed, Chief Technology Officer at Huawei Consumer Business Group South Africa.
“With this new range we are once again rewriting the rules of what’s possible in these fields, and are now extending it to videography. The Huawei P30 Pro has already received the highest score ever awarded on the DxOMark Mobile leaderboard – 112. The Huawei P20 Pro held that top spot for a year after revolutionising smartphone camera performance. The Huawei P30 Series not only lets Huawei break its own records, but also set a new standard for videography. ”
The Huawei P30 Pros’s Leica Quad Camera System is a world-first for advanced mobile imaging technology. Inside the slim body of the Huawei P30 Pro is a 40MP primary camera with a Huawei SuperSpectrum Sensor, a 20MP ultra-wide angle camera, a 32MP front camera, an 8MP telephoto camera fitted with a SuperZoom Lens and a Huawei ToF Camera. The all-new sensor, lens arrangement, image signal processor (ISP) and neural processing unit (NPU) work in tandem to capture incredible photos and videos.
The Huawei P30, on the other hand, is equipped with a Leica Triple Camera consisting of a 40MP Huawei SuperSpectrum sensor, a 16MP ultra wide angle camera and an 8MP telephoto camera. The new sensors, lens setup, image signal processor (ISP), NPU and custom image processing algorithms work seamlessly together to enable sophisticated professional camera features.
Breathing life into design:
The designs and colours of the Huawei P30 series are based on the concept of nature-inspired gradient colours. In the small-notch Huawei P30 Pro, two panes of double-curved glass form an invisible barrier that extends to the mid-frame, creating a slim look with a comfortable grip. The 6.47-inch Huawei P30 Pro and 6.1-inch Huawei P30 come in Breathing Crystal, Aurora and Black. The Huawei P30 Pro is also security savvy, with its In-Screen Fingerprint sensor that provides a larger fingerprint recognition area, which speeds up the unlocking process.
Local pricing and availability of the Huawei P30 series:
The new Huawei P30 and Huawei P30 Pro are available now at MTN, Vodacom, Telkom and Cell C stores. You can also purchase these phones and other Huawei products at Huawei South Africa’s new online store. Go to https://huaweistore.co.za for more information.
