Huawei will be taking the wraps off its next-generation P-series smartphones at a global launch event in Paris on March 26. Ahead of the big event, a few key specs of the P30 and P30 Pro have been leaked online, courtesy of two Asian certification agencies.
The ELE-L29 and VOG-L29 variants of the Huawei P30 and P30 Pro smartphones have been certified by Taiwan’s NCC and Indonesia’s TKDN certification agencies. While the TKDN listings only include the model numbers of the two smartphones, the NCC certificate tells us a little more about the hardware of the two upcoming Huawei flagships.
According to the NCC certification, Huawei P30 ELE-L29 variant will be available in two configurations: 6GB + 128GB and 8GB + 128GB. The certificate also confirms the phone will have a microSD card slot facilitating further storage expansion up to 256GB. Huawei P30 Pro VOG-L29 variant, on the other hand, will be offered in 8GB + 128GB and 8GB + 256GB configurations. Another key information revealed by the NCC certification is that only the P30 Pro model will offer wireless charging. The standard P30 will only support fast wired charging.
Huawei recently teased the super zoom capabilities of its upcoming P30 series smartphones but it was later discovered that the photos published by Huawei were actually taken using a DSLR camera. Funnily enough, one of the images that Huawei used was taken from Getty Images.
Both the P30 and P30 Pro smartphones are expected to run on HiSilicon’s 7nm Kirin 980 octa-core processor under the hood. The P30 is tipped to sport a 6.1-inch AMOLED display with a waterdrop notch at the top, while the P30 Pro will have a larger 6.5-inch dual-curved AMOLED panel with a similar notch design. As for optics, the P30 Pro will have a quad-camera setup on the back instead of the triple-camera setup on the P30. The mid-range P30 Lite will also feature triple rear cameras.
