Although the cameraphone ships with an impressive set of image sensor hardware, the DxO scores for the video part isn’t impressive. For the photo, P30 Pro scores 119 points and sits on top of the list. However, for Video, it scored 97 points, what is a point lower than its predecessor.

Now, Li Xiaolong, Vice President of Huawei’s phone device line, spoke about the issue of Huawei P30 Pro video recording scores during an interview with the media. He says that DxO believes that 4K mode greatly improves the resolution but the manufacturer does not regard 4K as the default mode.

Huawei believes that making 4K default isn’t the perfect setting for the users and hence, the default for video of P30 Pro is Full-HD 30FPS which the company says is much better and is a lot more widely used. He adds that the manufacturer isn’t targeting DxO scores.

The Huawei P30 Pro attributes a 6.47-inch Full HD+ curved OLED screen. It does not have an earpiece and instead, it uses Acoustic Display Tech which emits sounds through the panel using magnetic levitation.

Huawei has redesigned the tray: rather than a SIM tray where the two SIMs and or the NM Card are side-by-side, the tray of the P30 series is designed to fit in one Nano SIM on top and the NM Card or a second Nano SIM underneath.

In terms of optics, the P30 Pro has 4 image sensor scanners on the back screen – a 20MP f/2.2 ultra wide angle lens, a 40MP f/1.6 wide-angle lens, an 8MP f/3.4 5X telephoto, and a ToF depth-sensing camera. For selfies, it comes with a 32MP scanner with AI HDR+.
