Huawei P30 CAD-based renders and 360-degree video show three rear cams, water drop notch

Vlad, 04 January 2019

Huawei's upcoming P30 smartphone has received the CAD-based render treatment today. Alongside the renders comes a video showing it from all angles, as usual.

The P30 is going to have three rear cameras in a vertical island sitting in the top left of its back, with the LED flash below it. The handset's screen will have a water drop notch housing the front facing camera, and reasonably symmetrical bezels all round - although the chin still seems to be marginally bigger than the forehead and a bit more so than the sides.

The P30 will employ a gradient color finish which is really unsurprising considering how much Huawei loves this stuff. The back glass will be textured as well, akin to what we've seen in the blue and green color versions of the Mate 20 Pro.

Since there's no fingerprint sensor to be seen anywhere, it's probably safe to assume that the company will employ an under-display scanner in the P30. The screen itself will be around 6" in size. The phone's dimensions are 149.1 x 71.4 x 7.5 mm, although the camera hump takes the thickness to 9.3 mm.

A 3.5mm headset jack is still in, surprisingly or not, and you'll also get a colored power button sitting on the right side of the device, underneath the volume rocker. The P30 will charge through a USB-C port.

A 38 MP main sensor is expected to feature in that triple rear camera setup, and the P30 should be capable of 5x optical zoom. The selfie shooter is rumored to be a 24 MP unit. At the helm we will surely find the Kirin 980 SoC, while in terms of software if you dig deep enough you should discover Android 9 Pie underneath Huawei's own EMUI 9.0 skin.

I have just been speaking to Huawei representatives, the phone isn't officially called P30, it is code named "vogue" and is going to be so different to any smart phone on the market currently. They have also confirmed that 90% of rumours on the inter...

Because it's impossible to use phablets without bezel, especially with Android.

My Huawei Mate 20 Mobile Legend battle loading time is faster than Iphone X, so the performance is close to Iphone XS. Synthetic benchmark is just a reference, it didn't tell you the real life performance.
