“Huawei P30-series sold close to 17 million units, which is impressive considering that the series was only launched in March this year”
Huawei Mate 30 series was officially unveiled at an event in Munich yesterday. At the same venue, the Chinese brand shared stats of its previous flagships – the Mate 20 series apparently shipped over 16 million units since its launch in 2018. On the other hand, the P30-series sold close to 17 million units, which is impressive considering that the series was launched in March this year. In comparison, the Huawei P20 and P20 Pro sold 10 million units in the first five months, while P30 took just 62 days to cross the 10 million milestones. The Huawei GT that was launched alongside Mate 20 Pro shipped over three million units since then.
To recall, the Huawei P30 series flagships ship with the in-house HiSilicon 7nm Kirin 980 chipset and pack an in-display fingerprint sensor for security. The regular P30 sports a 6.1-inch full-HD+ OLED HDR Display, while the P30 Pro gets a larger 6.47-inch full-HD+ OLED HDR Display with DCI-P3 colour gamut and Huawei’s Acoustic technology that vibrates the screen to produce sound. They run on Android 9.0 Pie with EMUI custom skin on top. In terms of optics, the Pro model rocks a quad-rear camera setup consisting of a 40MP primary sensor, a 20-MP ultra-wide-angle lens, an 8MP telephoto lens and a ToF lens. There is a 32MP snapper for selfies and video chats.
The P30 has a triple camera set up on the rear with a 40-megapixel f/1.8 primary lens, a 16-megapixel ultra-wide-angle sensor, and an 8-megapixel depth sensor with 3x zoom. Both the phones run on Android 9.0 Pie with EMUI skin on top. The P30 packs a 3,650mAh battery with 40W SuperCharge fast-charging tech on board. While the P30 Pro has a massive 4,200mAh battery.
