Huawei CEO Richard Yu has shared teaser posters of the upcoming P30 series, hinting again at the smartphones' impressive lossless zoom capabilities. The Huawei P30 Pro is set to feature a periscope-style zoom camera, something that has been confirmed by Huawei's VP of Global Product Marketing Clement Wong. And now, these posters give a glimpse at the capabilities of the impressive camera on the Huawei P30 series. The Huawei P30, along with the Huawei P30 Pro, will launch in Paris on March 26.
Yu has shared several teaser posters on Weibo and all of them hint at the Huawei P30 series' zoom capabilities. The photos show a zoomed in spot of an otherwise landscape picture, and the zoomed in section is seen to be captured without noise or loss of detail. This clearly indicates that the Huawei P30 series will come with lossless zoom capabilities, something that has been teased before as well.
While the zoom specifics haven't been detailed by the company, it should be better than the predecessor P20 Pro, that came with 3X optical and up to 5X hybrid zoom capabilities. The P30 series phones will also come with a next-generation night camera, which will be a 'major upgrade' to the Huawei P20 Pro.
