Huawei will be unveiling its P30 series on March 26 at an event in Paris, France. The event will mark the debut of the P30 and P30 Pro, which will focus heavily on camera and AI. The P20 series was also launched around the same time last year in Paris.
The global launch event was announced on Twitter with the tagline, “Rules were made to be rewritten.” While the tweet does not offer much information, the accompanying GIF animation zooms into Effiel Tower, Notre Dame Cathedral and the Arc de Triomphe hints at a major camera upgrade to the P30’s camera. It’s likely that the P30 and P30 Pro will feature enhanced zoom capabilities.
Previous rumours claim the P30 and P30 Pro will offer waterdrop-style notched displays and the Kirin 980 processor. Speculation is rife that the P30 and P30 Pro may feature triple and quad cameras, respectively. Just to recall, the P20 Pro was the world’s first smartphone with a triple-camera setup on the back.

News of the P30 series making its debut in Paris next month comes a day before the arrival of Samsung Galaxy S10. Samsung will launch the Galaxy S10, S10+, S10e, alongside a foldable phone at an event on Wednesday in San Francisco. Both the P30 and P30 Pro will be pitted against the Galaxy S10 family of devices.
Interestingly, Huawei is holding another launch event next week in Barcelona, Spain. The Chinese smartphone maker plans to launch its foldable phone at MWC 2019.
