Week 13 in review: Huawei P30 family is finally official


The star of the past week is definitely the Huawei P30 Pro that was finally unveiled in Paris, France. It was accompanied by the vanilla P30 and plenty of gadgets, while their more affordable sibling P30 Lite silently started popping up in random markets.

Xiaomi tried to rain on Huawei’s parade, mocking the P30 and P30 Pro for using a dated chipset, despite the Kirin 980 actually being the latest by HiSilicon. The company also posted another teaser of its foldable device and suggested 100W charging might be around the block.

In other news, Samsung Galaxy A70 went official, more Oppo Reno renders revealed an unusual peeking selfie camera mechanism and Lenovo VP and mobile devices leader suggested the upcoming Z6 Pro might have a 100 MP camera.

Apple also had series of announcements, mostly on services, but it didn’t gather much attention – people mostly read the articles to mock the Cupertino company instead of engaging in actual debates.

This is so far the only device with two folds. The screen remains on the outside.
