Unboxing

Taking a look at the sales package, we find nothing but the same accessories supplied with Huawei P30 Pro. So, inside the box, they find space:

Huawei P30 Pro New Edition;
soft transparent TPU cover;
wall power supply, with support for Huawei SuperCharge;
USB / USB Type-C cable;
earphones with USB Type-C input;
pin for the SIM slot;
short instruction manual.

Design & Materials

Aesthetically, as already mentioned, Huawei P30 Pro New Edition does not differ at all compared to the previous edition. As in that case, therefore, we find dimensions equal to 158 x 73.4 x 8.41 mm, with a weight of 192 grams. We are therefore in the presence of fairly generous measures, which however develop longer. This makes this smartphone quite handy in daily use, however large it may be. Taking a look at the current top of the range, however, it does not look bad at all, even if the drip notch has now been replaced for the majority of cases by the punch hole.

Unlike what was seen with the previous model, here there is a different color, with a frosted glass surface that completely differs from the mirrored glass of the previous edition. This finish is therefore quite satisfactory under the fingers, always giving the product a rather premium appearance. On the other hand, however, the slipperiness has remained at the highest levels, given that this body also retains much less footprints than before, rarely dirtying the smartphone. All lovers of cleaning, therefore, will be quite happy. Then, the sinuous lines and shapes of this device do not vary, which still shows slightly curved surfaces on the front, as well as on the back.

This smartphone offers, on the right side, the on / off button and the volume rocker. On the upper profile we find the infrared sensor and the microphone useful for reducing environmental noise, unlike the opposite side on which we note the single SIM + NM Card slot, the main microphone, the USB Type-C 3.1 input and the system speaker . There is also the drop notch, which above it does not show any ear capsule. Here, in fact, Huawei Acoustic Display technology finds space, which transmits the sound directly from the display thanks to the vibrations. Unlike last year's variant, however, this model only comes in two colors, Black and Silver Frost, certainly less gaudy than the Breathing Crystal.

We remind you, however, that this unit has the IP68 certification against water and dust. One more feature that never hurts.

Display

Huawei P30 Pro New Edition is equipped with a 6.47-inch diagonal HDR OLED panel with FHD + resolution (2340 x 1080 pixels), 19.5: 9 ratio, 398 PPI and drop notch. As is often said "the team that wins does not change", and in fact it is really so. Also this year, therefore, the brand has always wanted to propose the same type of display, characterized by vivid and well-balanced colors, which do not seem to distort reality too much. In addition, in direct sunlight, this smartphone does not experience too many problems, making it pleasant to use outdoors.

In the event that you are not happy with the color calibration, which is set by the company by default, you may always decide to change it through the appropriate settings menu. Besides this, then, it will also be possible to take advantage of the always-on, as well as on P30 Pro, and use the various gestures with the screen on, which are so dear to many users. As on many devices of 2019, then, you will still have the possibility to "delete" the notch, even if you never feel its presence in everyday use.

I don't think it is necessary to remember it, but I want to specify how the touchscreen panel is excellent on this smartphone, in almost every point of the surface. I noticed some problems only at the two edges, which are often not too receptive. Sending an audio note on Whatsapp, therefore, could be a problem on some occasions, given that the button is located right next to a sensitive area of ​​the display. I want to clarify, then, that this defect was also present on the previous version of this smartphone.

Unlocking systems

As on many other competing products, also of 2020, two unlocking systems in particular find space on this device: the biometric sensor and the face unlock.

I must say, right away, that the fingerprint sensor placed under the display has not changed compared to the one mounted on Huawei P30 Pro. This, therefore, is slightly slower than what we can find on the current top of the range . Despite this, however, it is reactive and precise, unlocking the smartphone about 9 times out of 10. I would have preferred, however, that the support surface was slightly extended, thus improving the performance of this sensor compared to the P30 Pro. It is, however, still the most precise method on this smartphone, because face recognition in 2D, via the front camera, is too easy to bypass. In the dark, then, the latter unlocking method is absolutely ineffective.

Hardware & Performance

Taking a look at the technical data sheet of this product, we find a HiSilicon Kirin 980 SoC with 7 nm production process and maximum clock frequency of 2.6 GHz. On the graphic level, however, we have a Mali-G76 GPU, supported by Dual NPU for a renewed and improved management of machine learning processes and artificial intelligence processing. With Huawei P30 Pro New Edition, the brand wanted to maintain a single memory cut, that is, the one with 8GB of LPDDR4X RAM and 256GB of internal memory, of the UFS 2.1 type.

From a certain point of view we would not have expected lower performance than what we got, but not even lower. Testing this smartphone we went back for a moment back in time, feeling the same sensations as the first time with Huawei P30 Pro. Therefore, the brand managed to maintain the same feeling, once again producing a fast, fluid and quick product. In fact, if compared with other top of the current range, you immediately notice how the performances are practically identical, never running into any sudden application crash and no automatic restart. With P30 Pro New Edition, therefore, it seems that time has stopped. In spite of what is happening now in the mobile sector, in fact, Google services find space here, so the experience can be lived in full with all the apps we care about most.

I would not seem redundant, but the opening of the applications, if compared with POCO F2 Pro, has nothing to envy. As much on the latter smartphone as on the version of last year. Indeed, in some situations the system even shows a better optimization, eliminating all the micro lag that we notice on the POCOPHONE. At the gaming level, however, the differences are substantially non-existent, a sign that this P30 Pro New Edition has been able to collect the legacy of its older brother and, in some respects, improve a little more. You will have no problem, therefore, playing with Call of Duty Mobile, PUBG and Real Racing 3, with a rather stable frame rate and excellent fluidity.

You can also rest assured while watching streaming content on Netflix or Amazon Prime Video, given that here we find the Widevine L1 certification.

Software

On board this smartphone, the EMUI 10, based on Android 10, with security patches that date back to April 1, 2020 finds space. From this point of view, therefore, we are in the presence of an updated product, in step with all the innovations from this period. I don't have much to tell you, therefore, about the new EMUI 10, which you will have learned by now in these months. Those who are still in possession of a Huawei P30 Pro, in fact, have already received an important update, which has brought the new operating system to this product. At present, therefore, between P30 Pro and P30 Pro New Edition there are practically no differences.

As on all Huawei-branded devices that preceded the United States ban, we find Google services. You will not have to worry, therefore, to search for your app on the Huawei AppGallery. We therefore have all the Google applications available, as well as those of the system that already found space on previous models. As always, in fact, this customization of Android proves to be one of the most complete, in many respects. Not only for the many applications present when the device is turned on, but also for all the services and customizations granted within the system. It will then be possible to use the Themes app, manage the smartphone with Optimizer, activate Huawei Health, take advantage of all the tools such as the Remote control function or the Calculator. Here the possibilities are almost endless.

Camera

As on the previous model, here we find a still avant-garde photographic sector, always developed in collaboration with Leica. We note the presence, therefore, of a main sensor from 40 mega-pixels with aperture f / 1.6, OIS and with SuperSpectrum technology that replaces the green pixels with yellow pixels guaranteeing, according to Huawei, up to 40% more brightness in the environments blinds. Secondly, then, we find a periscopic telephoto lens from 8 mega-pixels with aperture f / 3.4, OIS and with 5X optical zoom that becomes 10X loseless and, even, 50X digitally. Finally, there is the ToF sensor for scanning subjects, 3D modeling through a dedicated app and optimization of shots and the ultra wide-angle sensor from 20 mega-pixels with f / 2.2 aperture.

To date, this Huawei P30 Pro New Edition has been surpassed, in technical terms, by other competing devices. Even only Huawei P40 Pro, in fact, shows a completely different infrastructure in this respect. Despite this, this phone can still have its say in this area. The quality of the shots in the daytime is very good, showing a definition of the image still up to expectations. on a 2020 product. I was once again amazed at the bokeh effect which, in some respects, turns out to be much more natural than that shown by some high-end devices still on the market. There are not many smartphones, then, to offer a 5x and 10x zoom of this quality, without losing too many details. Obviously, however, at night you notice some more problems also in this aspect, although during the day the photos are almost impeccable for such a product. They still do not lose Huawei for not having decided to introduce the HDR function on the main screen. Although on P30 Pro New Edition it is practically useless, it can sometimes save the shot on some lower-end device.

I was also quite satisfied with the macros, where I was able to take advantage of the Super Macro mode. From this point of view I believe I have obtained results that speak for themselves, managing to shoot the main subject with great care and with an excellent bokeh effect in the background.

We didn't specify it at the beginning, but the main 40MP sensor has an exceptional optical stabilization that, especially at night, does its dirty job. Thanks to the integration of the latter, the photos will be less blurred, although something is still lost in terms of quality. In this case, in the most difficult conditions, Night Mode can certainly help us, which will allow us to take rather bright photos. I would have expected, perhaps, even more detail, but to be a device of a previous generation there is absolutely no complaining.

Obviously, inside the notch, there is a front camera. This features a 32 mega-pixel lens with f / 2.0 aperture, and is capable of returning photos rich in detail during the day. We are not on a par with Google Pixel 4, which in this respect is much better, returning more real colors, more details and a better image definition in general. On Huawei P30 pro New Edition, however, the colors tend too much to red and, in the background, every type of detail is lost. I can tell you with certainty, therefore, that here there are several differences compared to a premium phone released this year.

Video

With this product, of course, it is also possible to shoot videos, with a maximum 4K resolution at 30 fps. We also have 960 fps slow-motion with HD resolution available. I must say that, always considering where this new phone comes from, stabilization is good and autofocus is very fast. With Huawei P40, and the other main smartphones of the series, the company has taken a further step forward, but already on this device the first real efforts to offer customers an increasingly complete product are noted.

Even at the audio level the two microphones on this device perform well, as the voice on the video is clear and clean. It is not one of the best products from this point of view, but it can still have its say.

Connectivity & Audio

Huawei P30 Pro New Edition still offers an excellent sector related to connectivity, although it is not entirely in step with the times. This model, like the previous one, allows you to navigate only in 4G +, without being able to take advantage of the new 5G network. Despite this, with Fastweb, he never had any problems during navigation, even within the home. Despite everything, however, we find a dual SIM slot in Nano format (or SIM + NM Card), Wi-Fi a / b / g / n / ac Dual band, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC, dual frequency GPS L1 + L5, A-GPS / GLONASS / BeiDou / Galileo / QZSS, the IR sensor and, finally, the USB Type-C 3.1 port. The latter, among other things, allows you to take advantage of the Desktop Mode by connecting an external monitor to the device.

During the past few weeks we have been able to move slightly more than before, so I can tell you that GPS is very responsive and precise, following us perfectly in a common navigation on the road. Also in terms of the network, then, I did not accuse any disturbance or malfunction, managing to connect to 4G + even in the most usually covered places.

However, there is no shortage of FM radio and mini-jack input. In terms of audio, in fact, this smartphone still manages to defend itself well, although the quality of the speaker placed at the bottom is not so excellent. The bass is noticeable and this does not make the audio full-bodied. Despite everything, at maximum volume the yield is quite satisfactory. As I mentioned at the beginning, then, the ear capsule is missing here, but this does not change the cards on the table. Talking to your interlocutor, or listening to a simple voice note on Whatsapp and Telegram, you will never have the feeling of being in front of a phone without a capsule. Also in this case, therefore, this device is absolutely promoted.

Autonomy

How does this autonomy phone behave? On board there is a 4,200 mAh battery which, in fact, has not changed much. Compared to Huawei P30 Pro, in fact, the unit is the same and the yield seems to have not changed at all. Just know that I have even reached 8 hours of screen on, on a basis of just over 16 hours of continuous use. It is a fact, therefore, that you will hardly be able to replicate with a device released this year.

Obviously, even in this case we have support for 40W fast charging, the Huawei SuperCharge. So, in about an hour, you will be able to easily switch from 10 to 100% charge.

Price & Conclusions

Huawei P30 Pro New Edition is sold on the official website, at the moment, at a really interesting price. The 8 / 256GB version costs 749 euros, and is included in a bundle consisting of Huawei Freebuds 3 and the Huawei SuperCharge Wireless Charger. This is an offer, therefore, which is difficult to renounce if you are interested in purchasing this product. It seems, however, that this package is not yet available for purchase.

Although Huawei P30 Pro it is possible to buy it currently even for less than 500 euros, this new P30 Pro New Edition represents an excellent proposal in this sense. Especially considering all the accessories that are supplied during the purchase. It is, in any case, a device still able to excel in some sectors, at least compared to many other high-end devices released during this year. In terms of autonomy, then, there are almost no rivals, showing a truly exceptional optimization. Anyone interested in this smartphone, therefore, must be aware of the fact that the compromises to be signed are very few, having one of the best products on the market in their hands.
