Huawei P30 Pro preview: Everything we know so far

UPDATED: The standard P30 is looking pretty sweet

Last year, Huawei's P20 Pro shot to the top of our best smartphones listing thanks to its brilliant triple-camera setup and overall premium allure. It's since been replaced by… well, the Huawei Mate 20 Pro.

Will Huawei make it three straight sensational flagships with the P30 Pro? Rumours are already swirling about the company's next premium handset, which has a couple of tough acts to follow. Even so, it could again be the flagship to beat in early 2019, although Samsung's Galaxy S10 and other handsets may give it a run for its money.

Here's everything we've heard about the Huawei P30 Pro and standard P30 so far.

What will the Huawei P30 Pro look like?

We've seen a few different leaks and speculative renders for the P30 Pro, and they suggest that Huawei plans to push even harder on its camera dominance this time around – which means more visible hardware on the back.

Leaks point to four cameras on the back this time, all vertically arranged in a module that looks like an extra-tall version of the one on the iPhone XS. And Huawei could be going big on the flash, as well, since renders show a pretty sizable flash node right alongside.

As for its face, case maker Olixar has released speculative renders (above) that point to a standard Mate 20-like teardrop notch… and a small chin at the bottom. The standard P30 (below) could be identical from the front, but with "just" three cameras on the back alongside a smaller flash.

Again, these images just show what Olixar thinks the phone will look like based on what the company has heard. These aren't Huawei renders.

Meanwhile, the image at the top of the page is a speculative render from leaker Ben Geskin, who based it on the leaks that he's heard. His render has more of the design nuance of the P20 Pro and Mate 20 Pro intact, but both do show four cameras even with aesthetic differences.
