The Huawei P30 Pro is undoubtedly one of the best smartphone for photos thanks to updated sensors with impressive low light output and advanced zoom capabilities. But, there are still some features missing from the device and Huawei recently explained the reasons that led her to the decision not to incorporate them into the Huawei P30 Pro camera.


During an interview, the Chinese maker was asked why the Huawei P30 Pro does not support 4K video recording at 60fps. To defend its product, Huawei claimed that the benefits of 4K video are only visible on a very large screen and therefore makes no sense to add the 4K video recording option to its smartphones. In addition, Huawei pointed out that 4K video capture at 60fps takes up a lot of memory, so it only recommends recording 60fps in Full HD video. Note that the Huawei P30 Pro can record 4K, but only at 30fps.

In the same interview, Huawei was asked why the 32MP selfie camera, which has the Huawei P30 and P30 Pro, does not support auto focus, a feature available in other companies’ flagship. In this question, the company replied that the use of the best possible sensor is more important than the addition of the most featured sensor.

Also, Huawei added that autofocus is not a necessary feature for the front camera, because the majority of selfies are taken from a fixed position. In addition, the company revealed that autofocus support would have made the notch much larger, which was not desirable by itself.


Many can claim that smartphones manufacturers have not managed to make their camera cameras noticeable. Huawei, however, continues to develop its mobile cameras and, during presentations, compares the performance of its own smartphones with that of its opponents.

Attendees at the interview asked the company why follow the tactic of comparisons and if it considers it necessary. Huawei replied that he believes that many people do not know their camera is the best, hence the frequent comparisons they make with other devices.
