Huawei has started rolling out a new EMUI update for its new flagship P30 and P30 Pro smartphones, which adds a night mode feature for the 32MP selfie camera. The update is currently being rolled out only to the Chinese variants of the two smartphones. According to GizmoChina, the feature is referred to as "super night mode" which enables users to capture high-quality images even in low-light conditions. So far, there are no official photos that describe the quality of the camera. So we need to see how long we have to wait just to wait how effective the new feature is.
We don't know how this super night works or how it is different than the usual night mode photography. It is not similar to the night mode feature which is already available for the rear side cameras on both handsets. The existing night mode in the devices has long-exposure which combines several images into one image to create a brighter image with lower noise. The update is called version 18.104.22.168, and it also has packed August security patch and a few other changes. These include optimizations for the in-display fingerprint sensor, activation of VoLTE calling for China Telecom subscribers, and a new video editing feature for the default Gallery app.
Since the update is for the Chinese market only, it may take some time for the super night mode to reach to other users in other regions. Huawei has confirmed that a beta for the P30 will be coming on September 8, and along with the P30, Huawei shared a list of devices slated to receive the EMUI 10 update as well.
This is not new to anyone in the industry, but the Trump Administration has intentionally tried to hurt Chinese manufacturers and their business by placing these and its subsidiaries on the country's Entity list. That means that Chinese manufacturers like Huawei can't import products from US-based companies. This restriction was also imposed on software-based products as well. The immediate side effects of this trade ban are that many new Huawei and Honor smartphones can't use the Google Mobile Services, which includes the Google Play Store and Google Play Services.
This trade ban starts to imply on the smartphones being launched in late 2019 and early 202 flagship devices. Which includes the Huawei Mate 30 series and the Huawei P40 series. However, Huawei has found some unique way around this trade ban, which involves tweaking an existing already-certified model and then re-releasing it to the market. That's what the company seems to be working on right now with the upcoming Huawei P30 Pro New Edition. The smartphone in question was promoted on Huawei's consumer page in Germany. It previously launched a P30 Lite new Edition with Google Mobile Services.
This removes the limitation on Huawei - that can't get GMS certification for new phone models and can use the certification for only the existing model. Huawei can re-release and rebrand their existing phones as many times as they like. This is a quite flexible probation for them, too. They can add a few upgrades such as RAM, storage, and different variants of the camera module without trying to ship a new SoC. They can even change the final design of the finished product to make it look brand new. Based on the existing SoC, the phone will have a HiSilicon Kirin 980 SoC since that will allow the company to retain the original P30 Pro's GMS certification. And we may have to see some new upgrades in terms of more storage, RAM, and design options.
Despite Trump Administration Ban on Chinese mobile phone manufacturer Huawei, it is successfully making the waves in the industry with its breath-taking smartphones. The Huawei P30 Pro is no exception. It has an amazingly sleek design, an incredible quad-camera setup with 10x hybrid zoom and a huge battery that promises a day-long survival even with moderate use.
Apple\'s design is fairly familiar and under some criticism due to camera setup at the rear side. So which is better? Apple iPhone 11 Pro or P30 Pro. Apple didn\'t create any drastic changes in the design of the smartphone and yes the camera module is much wider. The whole back is a single sheet of glass instead of having a metal camera module sticking out of it.
The iPhone comes with distinctive colors but overall it has an immersive screen, with minimal builds and looks and feels premium which justifies its cost to some extent as well. The P30Pro has the more visual appearance but has a much larger bottom notch as compared to the iPhone. Apple went for a 6.5-inch display for 11 Pro max whereas the Huawei has a 6.47-inch display. The P30 Pro has an FHD+ OLED screen with 1080 resolution whereas the iPhone 11 Pro has a super retina XDR OLED screen with a bit higher resolution at 2436 x 1125.
The Huawei\'s P30 Pro has a 10x hybrid zoom camera and gives amazing results as compared to other smartphone cameras with digital zoom. It has 40MP wide-angle, 20MP ultra-wide, 8MP zoom, and time-of-flight sensors. Meanwhile, Apple made a trio of 12MP back cameras with enhancements to smart HDR processing and excellent night mode. the P30 Pro is fast in everyday usage but the iPhone 11 Pro has the extra raw power of A12\'s fusion chip.
