We’ve already seen South African celebrities such as Pearl Thusi who took to Twitter to let fans that she’s blown away by the quality of the phone’s camera and powerful features.

“Sooo… I’ve been using the #HuaweiP30Pro for a week now and I am blown away by the quality of this phone’s camera and powerful features! Go ahead and #RewriteTheRules with the #HuaweiP30Series (sic),” – she tweeted.

Last year, Huawei initially launched its P20, P20 Pro and P20 Lite in Paris. Again this year, the group launched its latest P30 series in the Capital city of France. The launch, made by Richard Yu, Chief Executive Officer of the group, took place on Tuesday, March 26, 2019.

Speaking to MyBroadband, Huawei South Africa CTO Akhram Mohamed said they expect the smartphones to be extremely popular in South Africa.

“This has been an incredible device series for us in South Africa, specifically. We expect the same kind of numbers as the P20 Lite, as the device has become a favourite of South Africans,” – he said.

With this new range, the group wants to continue in the photographic revolution that began when it introduced its P9 on the market a few years ago. The peculiarity of the Huawei P30 is that it has three photo sensors, against the double sensor of the P20.

The P30 Pro comes with a main camera of 40 megapixels (MP) with the SuperSpectrum sensor, an ultra wide angle camera of 20 MP, a telephoto camera 8 MP, a Time of Flight camera and a 32 MP front camera.

This change in sensor technology allows users to enjoy a unique experience in photography and videography. They can, for example, have impressive results by taking unpublished photos of landscapes, stars and the moon.

For the experience to be complete, Huawei focused on the SuperZoom goal. This allows an exceptional magnification up to 5x optical zoom, 10x hybrid zoom and 50x digital zoom.

Design and screen

The P30 series is inspired by nature and technology, which gives it a very refined design. The P30 and P30 Pro have an AMOLED display. The first named has a 6.1-inch screen of 2440 x 1080 pixels. The P30 Pro has a curved screen of 6.47 inches.

Price and Availability

South Africans can now get the P30 series. It is available from SA’s leading cellphone stores. The phones are available in four colors: Breathing Crystal, Black, Amber Sunrise and Aurora. Huawei P30 price starts from R13,999 while Huawei P30 Pro price starts from R18,999.


Huawei also launched several other accessories. They unveiled a Power Bank that can charge all electronic gadgets with a power of 40W and a capacity of 12,000 mAh.

The Chinese manufacturer plans to launch the smart glasses Gentle Monsters in July 2019. According to Richard Yu, they will allow users to listen to music in stereo and take calls.

The Chinese firm has also launched its new FreeLace and FreeBuds Lite headphones. The Freelace can be recharged directly via a connection to the USB-C port of the P30 phone. These headphones have a battery life of 18 hours. With a recharge of only five minutes, they can be used for about four hours.
