The Huawei P30 and P30 Pro were finally announced earlier today and, as expected, they pack a punch. The P series has become known for exceptional photography and that is certainly the case this year. The P30 Pro features quad cameras and the P30 only has triple cameras. Huawei talked a lot about the much-improved low-light photography and impressive zoom capabilities. These will be two hard-to-beat phones in 2019 and our friends at Pocketnow got their hands on the devices. Watch the video below to see for yourself!
