The quad-camera setup on the Mate 30 Pro stole the show at the event. The four cameras -- topping the-- include a 40-megapixel camera, a 40-megapixel ultrawide-angle camera, an 8-megapixel telephoto lens and a Time-of-Flight sensor, to add more depth to photos.
This isn't the first time Huawei has dabbled with four cameras: The 2018 P30 Pro's 30 megapixels. However, the Mate 30 Pro uses a telephoto camera for zoom, instead of a periscope one, so users will get 3x optical zoom, 5x hybrid and 30x digital, compared to the P30 Pro's 5x optical, 10x hybrid and 50x digital, .and the 2019 have similar setups. The Mate 30 Pro's ultrawide-angle lens is now 40 megapixels, compared to the
The Mate 30 will start at 799 euro (about $885, £700 or AU$1,300), the Mate 30 Pro will start at 1,099 euro, and the Mate 30 Pro 5G will start at 1,199 euro.
On the front side of the phone, Huawei also showed off the Mate 30 Pro's "most advanced notch in the world," which includes four sensors: a gesture sensor, a 3D depth camera, an ambient light and proximity sensor, and a 32-megapixel selfie camera.
Meanwhile, the Mate 30 version has a smaller notch with a 24-megapixel selfie camera and the ambient light and proximity sensor, but not the other two. The cameras on the Mate 30 are not as advanced as those found in the Pro version, but still seem like a solid option.
In terms of video, the Mate 30 Pro is the world's first smartphone with a dedicated dual 40MP "Cine Camera" and 40-megapixel "Super Sensing Camera," according to Huawei. It also features 4K 50 fps resolution, 4K HDR Plus time-lapse, image stabilization and a real-time bokeh effect, and has the ability to take ultraslow-motion video, shooting 720p at 7,680 frames per second (no mention of slofies here though). The Mate 30 series also features improved Night Mode.
The Kirin 990 processor found in the Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro helps the cameras achieve these new speeds.
