Earlier today Huawei unveiled its new flagship phones for the first half of the year – the Huawei P30 and P30 Pro.
Both devices are headed to South Africa, but at this stage the precise launch date and indeed pricing remain unknown. As such when it comes to picking which one is best suited for your needs, you’ll need to look at he specifications, as each device is sporting small differences between them.
In order to save you some effort when comparing the specs of the P30 and P30 Pro, we’ve listed the key elements of each device below – display, cameras, processor, RAM, onboard storage and battery capacity.

|Storage||64GB, 128GB or 256GB||128GB, 256GB or 512GB|

On just about every category the P30 Pro carries the edge, an in particular when it comes to screen real estate and camera functionality. That said, when it comes to internal components such as chipsets and RAM, both devices are on par.
As such it will prove interesting what price tag Huawei opts for locally, especially for the P30 Pro. If the difference isn’t too great, then the Pro model might prove a more tempting offering, as was the case with last year’s P20 series.
Either way Huawei has been able to bring two covetable flagship phones to market.
