It is only a couple of weeks until Huawei will take to the stage to announce the P30 series of smartphones and as expected details are beginning to emerge of what it entails. Last night some P30 phones passed through varies regulatory bodies, showing some of the specs.
Overnight the P30 and P30 Pro were spotted passing through the NCC certification process in Taiwan and all three P30 phones Certificate of Domestic Content Level (TKDN) in Indonesia.
The codenames for the three P30 phones are ELE-L29 for the P30, VOG-L29 for the P30 Pro, and MAR-LX2 for the P30 Lite. All three support the 4G bands 1/3/5/8/40 — well, these versions do — you can be sure it will support most if not all Australian 4G bands. There was no evidence of a 5G version but given both Taiwan and Indonesia do not have functional 5G networks this is not a surprise.
According to the documentation the P30 will have either 6 or 8GB of RAM and 128GB of onboard storage and the P30 Pro will have 8GB of RAM and 128GB or 256GB of onboard storage.
None of this is a surprise given that the phones will differ in other ways with the P30 Pro expected to have the periscope rear camera lens but the P30 will miss out on it. Both are expected to arrive with the Kirin 980 chipset onboard.
You can be sure that Huawei will have some software surprises in store for us on March 26 in Paris so even if we do know everything about the hardware we will receive something new at the announcement. We look forward to seeing what Huawei can bring to the party this year.
