The Huawei P30 Pro’s quad-camera setup at the rear, which includes an improved 40MP sensor, takes the imaging experience a notch further by adding a periscope-style 5x optical zoom lens and a 3D ToF sensor to the mix. There’s a 32MP selfie camera at the front. The phone features a 6.47-inch OLED screen with Full HD+ resolution, a dot notch, and an in-display fingerprint reader. Powering this camera-focussed smartphone is a Kirin 980 processor, which is paired with at least 6GB RAM and 128GB internal storage. Storage space can be expanded further by using a Nano Memory (NM) card. The P30 Pro runs Android 9 Pie-based EMUI 9.0 software.
