Huawei set to launch new smartwatch alongside P30 and P30 Pro

The Freelace is recognized in the phone when plugged for the first time, the HiPair then establish a connection with the phone, allowing it to be used in both wireless or plugged modes.

Huawei P30 series has been subjected to several leaks.

The device also has a 4,400 mAh battery, in-built fingerprint scanner, a USB-C charging port with 40W supercharging. Scroll down to see the most affordable tariffs in our price comparison, as well as details on buying it SIM-free. This has means you get an RYYB sensor, which Huawei says can yield a maximum ISO rating of up to 409,600 on the P30 Pro. However, the P30 Pro no longer features a stereo speaker setup in addition to its lack of a 3.5mm headphone jack. The Huawei P30 Pro features a new quad-camera setup that includes a 40MP f/1.6 aperture wide camera, a 20MP f/2.2 aperture ultra-wide camera, an 8MP f/3.4 aperture 5X telephoto camera and a Time of Flight camera.

But this take on sensor design is certainly intriguing, and may well set the P30 Pro apart from other smartphones.

The P30 Pro is available from €999 in 8GB/128GB, 256GB and 512GB options - so no excuses for not filling it up with photos.

The Huawei P30 and P30 Pro are powered by 7nm manufacturing process-based octa-core Kirin 980 SoC with Mali-G76 GPU. Huawei's P30 will come in three colours - Aurora, Black, and Breathing Crystal - while the P30 Pro gets an additional Amber Sunrise colourway on top of the other three.

Video, meanwhile, is taken in 4K at 30 frames per second, while Huawei also promises better stabilisation and an upturn in low-light capturing.

Huawei is also yet to blow us away with the sonic aptitude of its smartphones, but the P30 Pro seems to be as easy a listen as its predecessors. The phones also have AI HDR+ to optimise overexposed and backlit selfies. This sensor will also come handy in facilitating future mobile AR developments, but exclusively on the P30 Pro as it's missing from the P30.

How much does the P30 and P30 Pro cost? And from the evidence we've seen so far, Huawei hasn't disappointed.

Let's get the more standard specs out of the way.

Huawei P30 Pro will reportedly feature four Leica-branded cameras at the back, a combination of 40MP "SuperSpectrum Sensor" primary camera, an ultra wide-angle sensor, a 10X zoom periscope lens, and a ToF sensor.
