Huawei P30 series update brings night mode to the front camera
Even though the Huawei P30 and Huawei P30 Pro hit store shelves back in March of this year, the device has still been able to maintain its title of having one of the best cameras on a smartphone to-date. We published our camera review of the P30 Pro a couple of months after release, and the company has continued to improve the experience with OTA software updates. This week the company has begun rolling out a new EMUI update which, among with other things, adds the Super Night Mode feature as an option for the front-facing camera.
Huawei made major headlines with the release of the P30 series. Even the Lite variant has received praise from a very targeted segment of the community. Most of the praise for this series has been about the camera though and Huawei continues to work on new features and optimizations. Those of you who own the Huawei P30 or P30 Pro and are running the Chinese version of the software should look forward to an OTA update that has already begun to roll out to the public.
You’ll find the full (translated) changelog for this update down below, but its most talked about feature right now is the addition of Super Night Mode for the selfie camera. This, among other features, has enabled Huawei to stand out from the competition with the P30 and P30 Pro. Other OEMs, including Google, have an extremely low light “night” mode but none seem to be able to compare to what Huawei offers. Those who are security conscious will also be happy to hear that this update includes the August 2019 security patches as well.
While the update is reportedly rolling out to owners in China right now, we expect it to expand to other regions in the near future.
