Be prepared to spend a lot on Huawei's upcoming P30 Pro.

In a recent trend, the cost of phones has been steadily on the rise. An iPhone XS starts out at $999. The Samsung Galaxy Fold will start at $1,980 and Huawei's foldable phone, the Mate X, is likely to cost $2,600. On Monday, the German site WinFuture published prices for the upcoming Huawei P30 Pro, and while not quite as high as a foldable phone, the phone will reportedly cost 999 euros for a baseline model, which converts to roughly $1,130. For perspective, the Galaxy S10 Plus costs $999.

This price reveal follows on a handful of leaks about Huawei P30 Pro's colors and cameras. The P30 Pro is rumored to have a 7.8x optical zoom, which would be a first on a phone. Of course, we'll know for certain about the cameras, price and color at Huawei's event in Paris on March 26.

Huawei didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.
