Huawei P30 goes mad for megapixels

With nearly 100MP spread across four sensors, are you ready for your close-up?

How many megapixels is too many? If you’re Huawei, you can always have more, which is why the P30 packs in 96 across four separate cameras: a 32MP one on the front and a trio of 40MP super spectrum f/1.8, 16MP ultrawide f/2.2 and 8MP with 3x optical zoom on the back. There’s no time-of-flight lens like on the P30 Pro but the super spectrum sensor captures yellow light instead of green, meaning you get 40% more colour data and crisper images. There’s a fingerprint sensor built into the 6.1in 2340×1080 OLED screen with a Kirin 980 processor underneath. Notch naysayers will be glad to see a dew drop, while the ‘chin’ has also been reduced in size. The P30 comes in three colours and will set you back £699.
