Huawei Watch GT smartwatch line adds new Active and Elegant models

Powered is provided by a 4,200mAh battery that features 40W Huawei Supercharge, which can charge the phone from 0 to 70 percent in just 15 minutes.

A year after the P20 Pro stunned the world with its cameras and snatched the top place on DxOMark's leaderboards, Huawei is back with a successor.

As a reminder, we're expecting powerful phones, running on the Kirin 980 chip, 6- and 8GB of RAM, lots of storage, four cameras (on the P30 Pro) with a periscope-zoom lens, triple cameras (on the P30), smaller notches, in-display fingerprint scanners, and other cool stuff.

On the video front, the P30 Pro can shoot 2160p at 30fps, 1080p at 60fps, and 720p at 960fps.

The P30 Pro is available from €999 in 8GB/128GB, 256GB and 512GB options - so no excuses for not filling it up with photos. Both phones are low-light monsters, and the P30 Pro has a sensitivity that goes up to a staggering ISO 409600. We got the opportunity to have a look at the Aurora and Breathing Crystal colourways, but there will also be "Amber Sunrise", and for those who prefer things a little more understated - standard black. Like the previously launched Watch GT Editions, these two also come with Huawei TruSeen 3.0 heart rate monitoring which is a continuous 24-hours heart rate monitoring tracking feature for both active and resting heart rates and TruSleep 2.0 which is claimed to monitor your sleep quality and accurately identify typical sleep issues.


Huawei hasn't announced a release date or any information on where we'll be able to purchase these watches, but we do have the pricing.

While this is an incredibly futuristic feature, it does come at the expense of stereo sound on the P30 Pro. Selfies also see a huge improvement.

P30 Pro is capable of sharing its power with other devices thanks to its support for wireless reverse charging. The P30 isn't water-resistant to the extent it can be submersed, but the P30 Pro can. And from the evidence we've seen so far, Huawei hasn't disappointed. Ahead of our full review, here are our detailed first impressions of using the latest Huawei premium device. Apart from that, the Pro variant has four rear cameras with a 40-megapixel (Superspectrum) f/1.6 sensor, 20-megapixel wide-angle f/2.2 sensor, not to forget the 8-megapixel f/3.4 sensor for 10x hybrid zoom and a fourth time-of-flight (TOF) sensor.

The two companies occupy first and second place in the global smartphone market table, Huawei having overtaken Apple during 2018.
