The heat up preparatory to the March 26 event has once again been intensified. We now have a mega list of specs for each of Huawei’s upcoming devices courtesy of Roland Quandt of WinFuture. The detailed specs are accompanied by alleged official renders of the device differentiated by the display and the camera set up at the rear which largely corroborates features already and renders we have seen in the previous leaks.
First off, the latest leak once again affirms several other reports that say the Huawei P30 and P30 pro will both get OLED panel, with the most premium of the duo getting a 6.47-inch panel that features curved edges on either side, and a move from a 3120 x 1440P resolution to a lower 2340 x 1080p display. The regular P30, on the other hand, gets a slightly compact 6.1-inch screen featuring the waterdrop notch, apparently devoid of curved sides while it retains the Pro 2340 x 1080p display resolution. Both devices obviously have slim bezels down the chin, but one thing is however not too notable: the P30 has an in-ear speaker very close to the water-drop notch, while same isn’t visible in the P30 Pro which seems to mean the Chinese company might have opted for the Sound-on-Display solution which uses a combination of vibrations and bone conduction to produce sound.
There is a lot to note on the flip side, but that is perhaps where the major differences lie. As previously leaked render suggested, the Huawei P30 triple rear camera layout in the form of a 40-megapixel camera with an f/1.6 aperture ,t no image stabilization, augmented by a 20-megapixel wide-angle camera and an 8-megapixel telephoto lens capable of 5x lossless zoom, while the Huawei P30 Pro gets a total of four rear cameras – including a primary 40MP sensor with f/1.8, OIS, a Time-of-Flight camera, a 20-megapixel wide-angle camera alongside a separate zoom lens with a periscope-like zoom system that is capable of 7.8x optical zoom, and up to 10x lossless zoom with the mix of phone’s software and data. Both devices are laced with Laser autofocus and dual-tone LED flashes.

The duo are both IP68 water and dust resistant, but not certain if they are MIL-STD 810G drop and shock resistant. Leaks from earlier yesterday have it the P30 will include a 3.5mm jack, while the pro variant will drop that for an IR blaster, but no one phone will get a combination of the duo.
Internally, Huawei’s upcoming P30 will pack the Kirin 980 coupled with 128GB of storage and 6GB of RAM, while the pro variant should take it up a notch further with same SoC, 8GB RAM, 128GB base model as well as 256GB and 512GB optional models, and will boot Android 9 Pie and EMUI 9.1 off the box, perhaps in single and dual-SIM options.
