Smartphones Huawei Mate 20 were shell EMUI 9.1


Huawei's share of the South African smartphone market has grown considerably over the past two years thanks in large part to the popularity of its P Series devices.

That's not to say the cameras in other phones were bad - the Xiaomi Mi 9 has a fantastic snapper for its price, and the ROKiT IO Pro 3D's 3D photography is a novelty if nothing else - but while it was fun experimenting with these handsets for the objective of a review, I'd never used a phone camera for novelty, non-review purposes.

Ian Li, General Manager of Huawei Consumer Business Group, Middle East Multi Countries, said, "we are pleased to be launching our latest P30 Series in Qatar".

HUAWEI P30 Series is now available for purchase through its showrooms in Doha Festival City, AlNasr Street, AlGharafa, as well as all authorized outlets and sales points. We saw the arrival of Huawei P30 series, Huawei Watch GT, Huawei Power bank and three MateBooks.

To maximise the phone's screen-to-body ratio, designers of the P30 Pro have also replaced the traditional front speakers with "Acoustic Display Technology", which uses "electromagnetic sound levitation" to project sound waves directly from the phone's display. In a one-day photography challenge Mr. Khalifa Al Obaidly used his P30 PRO to capture Doha on a Friday photo walk.

Through a new periscope design, the SuperZoom Lens supports high fidelity magnification of five times optical zoom, 10 times hybrid zoom and 50 times digital zoom. On the front, the phone has a 32MP selfie camera of f/2.0 aperture.

Apart from photographers, this phone would appeal to videographers as well. Indeed, with these camera features, the brand, is as their tagline says, "Rewriting the Rules of Photography".

With its tri-lens offering and range of features, the Huawei P30 got me to re-think how I use the camera in my phone, and the way I use it to take pictures on a day-to-day basis. The phone packs a battery of 4,100mAh with fast charging and wireless charger support.

The Huawei P30 Pro and the Huawei P30 are hitting store shelves today and to welcome these phones to the market, Samsung has reduced the pricing its Galaxy S10 series.
