rumors surfaced that the P30 Pro had four rear cameras. There's a 40 megapixel rear view camera – just like last year's P20 Pro. The main camera has an aperture of f / 1.6, which lets in a lot of light. The only phones with a wider-aperture camera are the Galaxy S10 Series, Note 9 and S9 series, which feature a 1: 1.5 aperture main camera. Of course, Samsung uses a dual mechanical aperture to switch between wide-angle and narrow, while Huawei's cameras have a fixed aperture.
A new 20-megapixel camera with an f / 2.2 wide-angle lens will also be one of four cameras back. LG has been offering a wide-angle lens for its cameras for years. Recently, Samsung added an ultra-wide-angle lens to the new Galaxy S10, S10E and S10 Plus. Interestingly, the P30 Pro will feature a 6.47-inch display that makes the P20's 6.39-inch screen a little larger pro. Bigger is not always better. The P30 Pro screen will have a resolution of 2,340 x 1080 pixels, which is less than that of the P20 Pro.
Huawei is expected to announce the P30 and P30 Pro at its event in Paris on March 26th. We have to wait until then to find out which rumors are true and which are not. Huawei had no additional comment.
