Huawei's newest smartphone camera flagship, the P30 Pro is here, which poses to be stiff competition to the Samsung Galaxy S10 series, especially the Galaxy S10+.
The P30 Pro continues to sport a large primary sensor, just like its predecessor but features and all new re-worked telephoto lens, which can now achieve a whopping 5x optical zoom and a 10x hybrid zoom. Huawei has managed this by aligning the elements of the telephoto lens horizontal to the phone and uses a prism to direct light towards the sensor.
The primary 40-megapixel sensor has also been updated which now features a RYYB (Red-Yellow-Yellow-Blue) colour filter, which swaps out the traditional green filter for yellow. Huawei calls this a SuperSpectrum sensor, which promises around 40 percent more light intake. The initial results already looking promising, as a the P30 Pro has managed to rack up the highest score in DXOMark's tests, for smartphone cameras.
It's time to put this to the test ourselves and see how to compares to the Samsung Galaxy S10+. Samsung's flagship has already fare quite well in our recent camera comparison with 2018 flagships, so this time, it's going to be just these two phones slugging it out. We left the camera settings pretty much as is and made sure that the AI scene recognition on both phones was switched on.
