Unique to the HUAWEI P30 Pro, HUAWEI ToF Camera captures depth-of-field information to deliver accurate image segmentation and uses precise distance measurement to allow for the simulation of multiple levels of bokeh. A 32MP selfie camera mounts the device front and produces AI-beautified pictures.
The 1/1.7-inch HUAWEI SuperSpectrum Sensor looks at light in a fundamentally new way. The RYYB HUAWEI SuperSpectrum Sensor deviates from the traditional RGGB Bayer filter by replacing green pixels with yellow pixels, yielding a high maximum ISO rating of 409,600 on the HUAWEI P30 Pro and 204,800 on the HUAWEI P30.
HUAWEI SuperZoom Lens:
The SuperZoom Lens takes smartphone zooming capabilities to unprecedented territories. The innovative periscope design enables Huawei to incorporate the telephoto camera into an extremely slim device. The periscope design uses a prism element to bend light at a 90-degree angle. By doing so, the sensor can be fitted in the chassis and support 5x optical zoom, 10x hybrid zoom and a never-before seen 50x digital zoom, bringing the farthest objects closer to the user’s eyes.
Dual-View Video mode: Redefining Smartphone Videography
The HUAWEI P30 Pro brings a refreshing way to shoot and view videos. HUAWEI Dual-View Video¹ uses multiple cameras simultaneously to capture videos. While shooting, the screen splits into two halves: the lower half shows the wide-angle capture, while the half that’s closer to the front camera shows a close-up shot. This mode, with its capability to capture dual perspectives, lends itself to capturing large-scale events such as sporting matches and concerts where users can adjust magnification levels as well.
Super Night Mode: Taking the Beauty of Photography to the Next Level
The HUAWEI P30 Pro supports a newly-introduced Super Night Mode in shooting videos. Equipped with the HUAWEI 1/1.7-inch SuperSpectrum Sensor with a f/1.6 large aperture lens, ISP and Dual-NPU, and supported by the new HUAWEI AIS+OIS solution, the HUAWEI P30 Pro retains great vision at low light and every frame taken across the long exposure is better with superior colors, dynamic range and clarity. Combined, these processes enable an exposure of 3-8 seconds and produce the most stunning images in low-light settings. The “night vision” capability lets the HUAWEI P30 Pro capture videos even in the poorest of lighting conditions.
