While the P30 features a 6.1-inch OLED display, the P30 Pro features a larger 6.47-inch screen. Despite the smaller size of the notch, Huawei managed to squeeze in an impressive 32-megapixel front-facing camera into the notch.

There’s also improved battery life thats worth commending, IP68 water and dust resistance, reverse wireless charging, a faster and more accurate in-display fingerprint scanner, the flagship Kirin 980 chipset. To be honest, the P30 Pro is really all about the camera. 

When it comes to the cameras, both the phones feature a new SuperSpectrum sensor which Huawei has developed in partnership with Sony. The sensor is RYYB (Red Yellow Yellow Black), as opposed to RGB (Red Green Black), replacing the green pixels with yellow, which according to Huawei allows the sensor to let in more light.
