Very troubling. That might be one of the first reactions that might occur with a new leak that shows what might be Huawei's response to the Samsung Galaxy S10. Continuing the successful design of its predecessor in 2018, the Huawei P30 Pro still seems to emit the elegance of the P20 Pro, with smaller curves. But while it's not too interesting, the smartphone's key features might show an area that is almost unbelievable smartphone makers will go to cram more cameras into their small handsets.
Huawei is always proud of its camera. Even though it didn't start, it was the first to really use dual cameras and how they can improve photo quality. It was the first to make a leap to three cameras and while Samsung was the first with four, Huawei P30 Pro was reported to be taking a slightly different round.
According to rumors, only three of the four cameras on the back of the P30 Pro can actually be used immediately. The fourth is reported to be a Time-of-Flight (ToF) sensor which is commonly used for 3D mapping in VR and AR. Surprisingly, this seems to be a new common feature on many Chinese phones. However, no one can use it fully.
The leaked image also shows a strange change in the face of the cellphone. Lost is the P20 Pro wide notch, replaced by a single U-shaped "water-droplet" cutout. The larger version of the P20 Pro is not without its use, becoming the home of sensors for more advanced 3D face recognition. The question is whether the P30 Pro will still have it.
The Huawei P30 Pro design is admittedly still beautiful but the longer the sensor on its back almost starts to be ridiculous. With the upcoming Nokia 9 lens, we won't see this trend coming to an end and we may have to start asking ourselves when enough is enough.
