It seems like the first renders of Huawei’s next flagship, the Huawei P30 Pro has just dropped and it seems like Huawei isn’t done yet. The first set of renders are coming from our trusty Ben Geskin over at Twitter showcasing what the P30 Pro may look like.
The renders showcased by Ben Geskin showcase a lot of the classy Huawei elements that you would come to expect from a Huawei device. From the flashy design to the attractive color gradient. However, what we didn’t see coming is a teardrop notch. Renders released by the leakster indicate Huawei’s plans to go with a waterdrop notch with the Huawei P30 Pro. In addition to that, the renders also suggest that the Huawei P30 Pro would feature a quad-camera setup at its back again next year.
For a bit of context, last year’s Huawei P20 Pro came with a Kirin 970 SoC, a 40MP + 20MP + 8MP rear camera setup, 8GB RAM, up to 256GB of internal storage and a 4000mAh battery.
Given that last year’s Huawei P20 Pro completely bamboozled Huawei’s competitors for its incredible camera performance and attractive aesthetics, we’re pretty sure that the P30 family of devices would only improve on their formula as Huawei and its fleet of Chinese competitors continue to pressurize Apple and Samsung’s market share.
Additional leaks regarding the Huawei Honor V20 and Huawei Nova 4 have also surfaced suggesting Huawei’s plans to amp that even further next year with a 48MP main sensor. Leaks regarding the aforementioned devices also seem to be dictating a new design language from Huawei too with the help of a punch-hole camera design that embeds the selfie camera within the display itself.
While speculating the internals for next year’s Huawei P30 Pro aren’t that hard, there’s a lot of debate murmuring around the P30 Pro suggesting that Huawei could be planning to release a new SoC with 5G capabilities while at the same time utilize the Kirin 980 found in the Huawei Mate 20 series and Honor devices for upcoming budget-oriented devices. These set of rumors come in after alleged leaks suggested the development of a new Huawei Hisilicon Kirin 990 appeared online to keep up with the whole 5G trend that’s set to boom devices releasing throughout 2019.
