TORONTO, April 11, 2019 /CNW/ - Featuring the best phone camera ever rated by DxOMark, the HUAWEI P 30 Series smartphones are now available in Canada from the following carriers - Bell, Rogers, TELUS, Sasktel, Videotron, Fido, Koodo and Virgin Mobile. Available in Black and Breathing Crystal, the HUAWEI P30 Series invites Canadians to rewrite the rules of photography.
"The HUAWEI P30 Series redefines mobile photography," said Kevin Li, President, Huawei Canada's Consumer products. "The P30 Pro flagship gives consumers the power and versatility of a pro dslr in a stunningly beautiful body that feels completely natural in the hand. The P30 Pro also features one of the largest batteries in the industry, ensuring Canadians can rely on it to capture the moments that define their lives."
Launched in Paris on March 26, the P30 Pro has earned rave reviews and has instantly become the standard by which all other smartphone cameras will be measured. Influential Canadian tech writers are already considering it one of the best cameras of 2019.
"Initial reaction by Canadian writers is extremely positive - they're really liking the Leica Quad Camera System, the incredible night capture mode and the overall control they have over their image making," said Mr. Li. "And the new 32 MP front-facing camera is a selfie game-changer."
The HUAWEI P30 Series will change users' expectations of smartphone photography. Achieving a record-high overall DxOMark score of 112, the HUAWEI P30 Pro is equipped with a new Leica Quad Camera System, including a 40 MP main camera with the HUWAI SuperSpectrum Sensor, a 20 MP ultra-wide angle camera, an 8 MP telephoto camera, the HUAWEI ToF Camera and the 32 MP front camera.
The 1/1.7-inch HUAWEI SuperSpectrum Sensor looks at light in a fundamentally new way. The RYYB HUAWEI SuperSpectrum Sensor deviates from the traditional RGGB Bayer filter by replacing green pixels with yellow pixels, yielding a high maximum ISO rating of 409600 on the HUAWEI P30 Pro and 204800 on the HUAWEI P30. This fundamental shift in sensor technology, combined with HUAWEI AIS, OIS and the HUAWEI P30 Pro's f/1.6 wide aperture, delivers extraordinary photography and videography experiences across a wide range of scenarios and lighting conditions—including extreme low light—producing images with enhanced detail, colour and clarity.
The new SuperZoom Lens unlocks a superior level of zoom photography in a slim-line device design. 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. A prism element in the telephoto camera bends light at a 90-degree angle to maximize focal length while minimizing camera height, without disrupting device design.
The HUAWEI ToF Camera unleashes the imagination. Unique to the HUAWEI P30 Pro is a HUAWEI ToF Camera that captures depth-of-field information to deliver accurate image segmentation. Precise distance measurement allows for the simulation of multiple levels of bokeh. The Super Portrait feature captures even the smallest details, such as individual strands of hair. It combines depth information and proprietary algorithms to produce outstanding images with defocused backgrounds and highlights the subject of the image in any scenario.
Huawei AI helps users bring it all together into the perfect shot. AI HDR+ enables the front and rear cameras to combine multiple photos taken in quick succession to eliminate overexposed and backlit images.
