Huawei has just wrapped up their Huawei P30 keynote and it seems like Xiaomi has begun throwing jabs at the non-pro Huawei P30. it’s not typical for Xiaomi to throw jabs at their competitors this clearly. However, over the past few months, Xiaomi has been more than blatant enough for comparing their devices to its rivals.
Xiaomi Mi 9 vs Huawei P30 Specifications & Features – Xiaomi tries to take the first jab at the Chinese giant’s latest flagship
Xiaomi’s social media channels have just posted a spec comparison between the Xiaomi Mi 9 and the Huawei P30, making the Xiaomi Mi 9 looking a whole lot better on paper compared to Huawei’s P30.
For a bit of revision, Xiaomi’s Mi 9 features Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 855 SoC, a 6.4-inch Full HD display, a triple rear camera setup, an under-display fingerprint sensor, 20W wireless charging support and more. Furthermore, the Xiaomi Mi 9 comes in a few variants, but Xiaomi chose to compare their 6GB/128GB variant to Huawei’s equally equipped P30.
The Huawei P30, on the other hand, comes with a 6.1-inch Full HD+ display, Huawei’s in-house Kirin 980 SoC, a rear triple-camera setup, an under-display fingerprint sensor. and the same storage/RAM configuration as the Mi 9.
However, in classic biased fashion, Xiaomi is being sneaky is by not comparing the battery sizes, DxOMark scores and mentioning that the Huawei P30 actually comes with a 3.5mm headphone jack. And this is where the Huawei P30 clearly trumps Xiaomi’s Mi 9. The Huawei P30 comes with a 3650mAh battery compared to the Mi 9. Regarding the P30’s score, you could rest assured that the Huawei P30 would be able to score above the Mi 9 given how many improvements Huawei has introduced this year, especially in the camera department where once the P20 dominated alongside its elder brother, the P20 Pro.
Sure, value is one core area where Xiaomi has done an incredible job at. I mean, we’re comparing a $449 device to a $799 device. However, Xiaomi has since announced that the next Xiaomi flagship may not be all that valuable anymore as they plan to take on Huawei and innovate just as well as Huawei does. After all, it’s in Xiaomi’s best interest to dethrone Huawei from the top spot in China.
