Huawei had an amazing 2018 with the launch of the Huawei P20 Pro and the Huawei Mate 20 Pro. Both the smartphones performed exceptionally well last year not only in the hardware department but also in the camera department. The P20 Pro even grabbed the crown of the best camera smartphone of 2018 by DxOMark.

To continue the legacy, Huawei is already working on the successor to the P20 and P20 Pro smartphones. Renders leaked by @OnLeaks in collaboration with 91Mobiles reveals the first ever look of the upcoming Huawei P30 smartphone.

As we can see in the renders, the Huawei P30 will house major design changes compared to its predecessor. The front of the P30 will come with a 6-inch Full HD+ OLED display with minimal bezels and a tear-drop notch, similar to the Essential Phone but smaller, housing the selfie camera. Unlike the P20, the Huawei P30 will come with triple rear cameras paired with a dual-LED flash.

The fingerprint scanner, which was included in the front home-button on the P20, is now moved under-the-display on the Huawei P30, which is a welcome change as many manufacturers are already moving towards in-display fingerprint scanner.

On the right frame, we have the volume rockers followed by the power button. The bottom hosts the speaker grill, USB Type-C port, antenna bands, primary microphone and the return of the 3.5mm headphone jack, which was missing from last years line-up.
The triple rear cameras on the back of the Huawei P30 is said to come with a primary 38MP Sony RGB sensor capable of 5X optical zoom with 20MP + 5MP secondary cameras (for comparison, the Mate 20 Pro with triple cameras come with lossless 3x optical zoom). A 24MP sensor will be added to the front of the P30. It's interesting to note that this isn't even the Pro version of the series.

Talking of the silicon, the Huawei P30 is rumoured to be powered by its own and latest 2.36GHz Octa-core HiSilicon Kirin 980 SoC. The P30 might be available in two different storage options of 64GB and 128GB with 6GB and 8GB RAM respectively, with EMUI 9.0 based on Android 9.0 Pie. The phone dimensions measure 149.1 x 71.4 x 7.5 mm (9.3 mm including the camera bump).

There is no word on the details of the Huawei P30 Pro smartphone. Huawei announced the P20 series back in March 2018. So we can expect the same timeline for the launch of the P30 series. Pricing and other details are yet unknown.
