Huawei phones are well known for their top spec cameras. We’re about to road test the new P30 Pro, to see how it measures up.

Putting the P30 Pro through its paces
Marcus knows his tech. After a rundown of the Huawei P30 Pro’s specs and features, he sends Dev out and about to push this brand new phone to its limits. How will it perform straight out of the box? We ride with Dev as he uses street smarts and visual genius to get to grips with the Huawei P30 Pro.
How the Huawei P30 Pro could raise your production game
Quad camera set up
The set up includes four Leica cameras – a 32MP front camera, plus 40MP, 16MP and 8MP cameras on the rear, with a Time of Flight sensor. So what you capture will look better than ever.
This brand new Huawei boasts a massive 10x zoom. Extreme close ups taken care of.
The P30 Pro comes with up to 128GB storage, meaning more space for shooting and storing photos and video when you’re on the move.
You can expect the P30 Pro to last between a day and a half and two days, on one charge from its 4200Ah battery. That’s essential when you’re out on a shoot. And it’s equipped with fast charging, so you can get up to 100% in just over an hour.
3.5mm headphone jack
The jack is back. Even though it’s been missing from recent smartphones, Huawei have put it back into the P30 Pro. So you can use your favourite headphones for editing or just listening to music, without carrying around a converter.
