With a larger battery, screen size and additional lens, the P30 Pro is the flagship model in the new series. The partnership between Leica and HUAWEI is showing great success as the 2 continue to work closely in virtual teams on each iteration of HUAWEI phones.

“The HUAWEI P30 Series is a fundamental breakthrough after decades of digital camera technology development; it will rewrite the rules and reshape everyone’s perception of mobile photography. Innovations such as the HUAWEI SuperSpectrum Sensor and SuperZoom Lens allow us to push the envelope of both photography and videography—a frontier long overdue for disruption. The HUAWEI P30 Series will set the pace for the next generation of smartphones by empowering people to capture the true beauty of the world around them through a device that fits in the palm of their hands.”

Richard Yu, CEO of Huawei Consumer BG

The high quality camera on the P30 Pro dominated the keynote speech with several examples and a live demo performed between the latest iPhone, Samsung Galaxy and P30 Pro phones. The P30 series consistently performed better than it’s rivals.

The P30 Pro leads the pack with low light photos

“We’re thrilled to be the makers of a phone range that continues to elevate everyday photography. As Australians we’re proud of our picturesque nation. With the HUAWEI P30 Series any phone user can transform the average selfie, lighten the evening sky or capture the full view with simplicity but with consistently amazing results. Yet, while we’re aiming rewrite the rules of photography, we’re listening to all Australians’ needs – a longer battery life to keep up with our busy lifestyles and a slick design to match our fashion forward trends. The HUAWEI P30 Series is the phone for the modern Australian user.”

Larking Huang, Managing Director of Huawei Australia Consumer BG
