So it looks like both members of the P family are incrementing the number of their cameras by one next year.

Huawei is getting closer and closer. Night mode + pixel binning + 5x lossless zoom will get it ahead of the competition.

Huawei has the helm now. Let's see where they lead us

regs, 22 Dec 2018Rumored to have Sony IMX607What's so special about that one?

LOL, 22 Dec 2018Huawei's P-series and Mate phones are high end flagship pho... moreStop talking nonsense... There are three models of P and Mate: Lite (lower end of midclass), P (higher end of middle class) and PRO (flagships). The difference between P Pro and Mate Pro is that P series are for fun (games, music, etc) and Mate's are business class phones...

My guess is P30 will use same camera sensors and setup like Mate 20 Pro but will lack FaceID, will probably have 3.5mm jack and lower resolution screen (1080) basically its going to be Mate 20X with smaller battery and screen size

Budget midrange ones are the Honor and Nova phones. Cheap build quality, slower chip, more modest hardware specs. But you get what you paid for.

My advice to Huawei: please do not be overly aggressive with the way the AI enhances the photography. The photos get sharpened too much on Huawei phones.

EMUI 9 has improved a lot, but it is still clunky and bloated. Huawei needs time to learn from its mistakes, just as Samsung had improved from the bad old days of Touchwiz.

The sensor itself is decent, but the combination of relatively shallow depth of field and lack of autofocus is what's stopping the selfie camera from shining.

More cameras more possibilities, come on Huawei hit them again.

Hope P30 is not going to be a mid budget and will feature IP68 protection, qi charging, USB-PD, memory card slot (with memory card and reader included in case of NM crads), EMUI Desktop, 2160p60 video recording and underscreen dactyloscopic reader.

It makes me more excited to see the camera setup of the upcoming P30 Pro. Something tells me it's going to be glorious.

I really hope they ditch that mediocre 24MP selfie sensor though. They really need to put a top-notch 8+ MP AF snapper on the front.

Shanti Dope, 22 Dec 2018Not impossible. This year's P20 (non-Pro) uses the same ex... moreSame setup (rgb+monochrome) but different sensor.

P20 - Sony IMX380 1/2.3" sensor size, 1.55um pixel size.
Mate 10/pro - Sony IMX386 1/2.9" sensor size, 1.25um pixel size.

The same IMX380 sensor on P20 used on vanilla Mate 20, which has the biggest pixel size on a single sensor for mobile today. The quality approved.

P30 on the other hand, will using IMX600 1/1.7" sensor as last Mate 20 pro/P20 pro, which is good.

P20pro and mate 20pro have 3x zoom
5x zoom is digital. If p30 have 5x optical zoom, this is huge step forward at so small lens in phones.
