The 1/1.7-inch RYYB HUAWEI SuperSpectrum Sensor works differently from the traditional RGGB Bayer filter by replacing the green pixels with yellow pixels that provides a high maximum ISO rating of 409,600 on the HUAWEI P30 Pro and 204,800 on the HUAWEI P30. This new sensor technology combined with HUAWEI AIS, OIS and the HUAWEI P30 Pro’s f/1.6 wide aperture is designed to deliver next level imaging experiences across a wide range of scenarios and lighting conditions.

The new SuperZoom Lens supports 5x optical zoom, 10x hybrid zoom and 50x digital zoom. A prism element in the telephoto camera bends light at a 90-degree angle to maximize focal length while minimizing camera height and without disrupting device design.

The HUAWEI Time of Flight ToF Camera on HUAWEI P30 Pro captures depth-of-field information to deliver accurate image segmentation and precise distance measurement allows for the simulation of multiple levels of bokeh. Huawei AI helps users bring it all together into the perfect shot. AI HDR+ enables the front and rear cameras to combine multiple photos taken in quick succession to eliminate overexposed and backlit images.

HUAWEI AIS and OIS provide the stabilization for all video capture settings to provide steady shot. The AI Video Editor enables users to add background music and special effects to their videos right from HUAWEI P30 Series smartphones without downloading any third-party app or using a computer video editing software.
