We already know that Huawei is gearing to launch the P30 Pro in India soon – the company has already started running a dedicated landing page on Amazon India. A new IANS report has now revealed the launch time frame – Huawei will apparently launch the P30 Pro in India as early as next week, and it will be joined by the P30 Lite. The vanilla P30 may not make it to India at this point of time which won’t be surprising considering Huawei’s history – the vanilla P20 also never made it to India.
Huawei launched the P30 Pro and P30 phones at a keynote event in Paris on March 26 while the P30 Lite was silently launched a couple of days later.
The P30 Pro is a high-end flagship phone that focuses on design, cameras and performance. Its quad rear camera setup is of course its biggest USP - the P30 pro has a 40MP primary rear camera (27mm f/1.6 with OIS), and an 8MP 125mm telephoto sensor with f/3.4 aperture and OIS - Huawei is using a periscope lens that's capable of achieving 5X optical zoom, 10X hybrid zoom and 50X digital zoom. The P30 Pro, in addition, also has a 20MP ultra-wide camera (16mm f/2.2) and a Time-of-Flight camera for 3D depth mapping purposes.
Huawei has launched the P30 Pro at a starting price of Euros 999 (roughly Rs 78,000) for the base version with 8GB RAM and 128GB storage going all the way to Euros 1,249 (roughly Rs 97,000) for the top-end version with 8GB RAM and 512GB storage. The 8GB RAM and 256GB storage version of the P30 Pro has been launched at Euros 1,099 (roughly Rs 85,500). The Amazon listing of the P30 Pro suggests Huawei may bring only the 8GB RAM and 256GB storage version of the phone to India.
The P30 Lite on the other hand is a budget phone when compared with something like the P30 Pro. It comes with a gradient design, a waterdrop-style notch and a conventional fingerprint scanner on the back (the P30 Pro has an in-display fingerprint scanner) – it has three rear cameras and a 32MP front camera.
