Huawei P30 Pro tipped to feature dual-curved OLED display with a notch

“While Huawei is already launching the Nova 4 and Honor View 20 with hole-in-display cameras, a supply issue would see the P30 Pro sport a notch”

The launch of the Huawei P30 series is reportedly a few months away. That, however, has not stopped sources from across the world to find out the development being made behind the scenes for Huawei’s flagship-class smartphone for 2019. New details about the display panel of the Huawei P30 Pro have surfaced online, along with an image of its possible designs. The P30 Pro is expected to use an OLED display with dual curved edges, a la Samsung’s edge AMOLED displays.

The interesting bit here is that the tip off has claimed that the Huawei P30 Pro will have either a wide notch or a waterdrop notch. This might seem a bit strange, since Huawei seems to be one of the very first companies to have cracked the selfie-hole-in-display formfactor with the Honor View 20 and the Huawei Nova 4 smartphones. However, with the P30 Pro using a curved OLED display, it will have to appoint BOE or LG as its display suppliers. The OLED panels with camera holes are reportedly only manufactured by Samsung Display. As a result, Huawei will need to stick to the notch-based design language for the P30 Pro.

That said, it is still quite early to make this a confirmed declaration and information at this time should be taken with a pinch of salt. Things in the realm of technology change in very short notice spans, so it might be likely that Huawei does end up sourcing Samsung’s Infinity-O displays. Huawei is also reported to be debuting Sony’s next generation IMX607 38-megapixel mobile imaging sensor as part of a multi-camera setup. The next-generation sensor is considerably larger, being a 1/1.8″-type sensor. It also uses an RGBW Bayer array, with the white arrays used for enhanced HDR performance.

At the present pace of things, it is highly possible that our smartphones will soon feature a proper 1″-type imaging sensor, along with high resolution ones. The Huawei Nova 4 has been confirmed to feature a 42-megapixel imaging sensor already, and the P30 Pro is also reported to come with a 25-megapixel+ imaging sensor.
