Huawei, the world’s third-largest smartphone maker launched its new flagship phone in Paris on Tuesday with the hope to make gains in Europe where its other products could face in-depth scrutiny for security reasons.
Huawei’s P30 Pro aims to take on Samsung Electronics’ Galaxy S10 and Apple’s iPhone X with its four rear cameras
The phone has a new light sensor that detects yellow rather than green, a development it said which significantly boosts light absorption to create better results, even in near darkness.
The P30 Pro, Huawei’s P30 premium version, also uses electromagnetism to vibrate the screen to create a speaker when the device is held up to the face, minimizing sound leakage when taking a telephone call.
The P30 Pro starting price is 999 euros for 8GigaByte RAM and 128 GigaByte storage, and the P30 is 799 euros for 6GigaByte RAM and 128 GigaByte storage .
The phone maker,which also makes telecoms network equipment, has been under international scrutiny following U.S. allegations that the Chinese giant’s products could be used by Beijing for spying.
The firm has strongly rejected the allegations and earlier this month sued the U.S. government over the issue.
