The improved processing power of Kirin chipset and newly deployed AI-RAW algorithm that offers improved noise reduction at RAW level allow Huawei Mate 30 Pro capturing images with jaw-dropping quality. The super-resolution model at RAW level for better texture and detail make the Zoom in feature of the rear camera more adorable.

Undoubtedly, Huawei Mate 30 Pro has taken the competition of mobile photography to a whole new level with overall 113 DXOMark score. While 2020 belongs to quad-camera smartphones as leading OEMs are gearing up to introduce powerful smartphones with quad-camera lenses. However, under the hood processor and inbuilt AI capabilities will play a vital role in capturing images and videos with jaw-dropping quality.
Despite all the impressive initial reviews and cutting edge technology, the fate of Huawei Mate 30 Pro hangs in balance due to the unavailability of Google Apps on the device, thanks to US-China trade war that resulted in Google revoking the license of Android for Huawei. The company insiders, however, have confirmed that there is a way to have Google apps installed on the device.
