Huawei has already sold more than 10 million Mate 20 smartphones

The P20 Pro already showcased the best zoom in the market with its 3x optical zoom, and the P30 Pro will build on that. This time around, though, the Chinese brand has fitted the premium device with an IR blaster, although it does come at a cost. But rather than fitting it with a 3.5mm headphone jack, Huawei has used this space to include its SIM and nanoSD card tray.

The patent also hints at an interesting triple camera setup.

The pictures above and below are just one of several sample images Huawei tried to pass off as having been taken by its upcoming flagship smartphone. The P30 Pro looks set to build on those credentials, with Vice President of Global Product Marketing Clement Wong recently confirming the addition of a new, periscope-style "superzoom" camera. The outlet reckons that the colorway will be called "Sunrise", but it doesn't look like Huawei is going for a super-aggressive gradient here.

Last week the company announced a lawsuit against the USA government about the equipment ban, so it is unlikely that the Mate 20 will be available from major US retailers in the near future. According to the source, the Nova 4e will be available with either 4GB or 6GB of RAM and it has 128GB of internal storage as standard.

There's a lot to be excited about when it comes to the P30 and P30 Pro smartphones scheduled to launch March 29 in Paris. Moreover, the device will also have the facility of storage expansion via nanoSD card.

Nonetheless, Huawei P30 Pro passed the performance tests on AnTuTu with flying colors.

The phone has a model number "HUAWEI ELE-L29" on the GeekBench listing.

The device runs on Android 9 Pie, uses HiSilicon's high-end Kirin 980 homemade chip as well as a Mali G76 GPU chip, 8GB of RAM and 256GB of ROM.

Since the sheer popularity of the P20 Pro a year ago, Huawei has adamantly pushed its camera technology to the forefront in partnership with Leica. The images are supposed to tease the ability of the new zoom feature, but as one GSM Arena reader spotted, one of the images was taken by a professional photographer using a DSLR.
