World’s First Leica Quad Camera with Cutting-Edge SuperSpectrum Sensor and SuperZoom Lens
Taking mobile photography to a brand-new level, HUAWEI P30 Pro is the highest-rated smartphone camera on DxOMark with an average score of 112. HUAWEI P30 Pro carries a new Leica Quad Camera on the back of the device, including a massive 40MP main camera with a revolutionary 1/1.7-inch SuperSpectrum sensor, a 20MP ultra-wide angle lens, 8MP telephoto camera and HUAWEI Time of Flight (ToF) Camera to unleash the imagination. Unique to the HUAWEI P30 Pro, HUAWEI ToF Camera captures depth-of-field information to deliver accurate image segmentation and uses precise distance measurement to allow for the simulation of multiple levels of bokeh. A 32MP selfie camera mounts the device front and produces AI-beautified pictures.
The 1/1.7-inch HUAWEI SuperSpectrum Sensor looks at light in a fundamentally new way. The RYYB HUAWEI SuperSpectrum Sensor deviates from the traditional RGGB Bayer filter by replacing green pixels with yellow pixels, yielding a high maximum ISO rating of 409,600 on the HUAWEI P30 Pro and 204,800 on the HUAWEI P30.
HUAWEI SuperZoom Lens:
The SuperZoom Lens takes smartphone zooming capabilities to unprecedented territories. The innovative periscope design enables Huawei to incorporate the telephoto camera into an extremely slim device. The periscope design uses a prism element to bend light at a 90-degree angle. By doing so, the sensor can be fitted in the chassis and support 5x optical zoom, 10x hybrid zoom and a never-before seen 50x digital zoom, bringing the farthest objects closer to the user’s eyes.
Dual-View Video mode: Redefining Smartphone Videography
The HUAWEI P30 Pro brings a refreshing way to shoot and view videos. HUAWEI Dual-View Video¹ uses multiple cameras simultaneously to capture videos. While shooting, the screen splits into two halves: the lower half shows the wide-angle capture, while the half that’s closer to the front camera shows a close-up shot. This mode, with its capability to capture dual perspectives, lends itself to capturing large-scale events such as sporting matches and concerts where users can adjust magnification levels as well.
Feature will be enabled via HOTA update at a later date.
