It’s that time of the year where premium smartphone brands begin teasing the crowds with hints of their next-generation smartphone, and Huawei is no exception to the rule. In fact, the Chinese smartphone maker recently released a teaser for its upcoming P30 series smartphone, along with its launch venue.
The teaser comes in the form of a 10-second short video, to which Huawei had posted up on its official Twitter account. In it, the video shows still shots of several iconic landmarks in Paris, France, which includes the Eiffel Tower, Notre-Dame Cathedral, and the Arc de Triomphe. A clear hint at where Huawei intends to launch the P30.
The text accompanying the tweet reads “Rules were made to be rewritten”, followed by the date of 26 March 2019. If that wasn’t a big enough giveaway, the tweet also contains the hashtag “#HUAWEIP30” at the end.
The Huawei P30 is the successor of last year’s P20 series. To date, there is very little detail regarding the phone, including its hardware specification, design, or the camera setup that will be used.However, given the nature of its predecessor, it wouldn’t surprise us if the higher-tier version of the phone will retain the same triple-camera main array or if Huawei decides to one-up itself by adding on a fourth camera sensor.
This announcement also makes Huawei the second company to have the announcement of a major flagship outside of Barcelona, and away from the platform of MWC 2019. For context, Samsung will be launching its Galaxy S10 smartphone series during its Galaxy Unpacked event. However, instead of holding its within the MWC grounds in Barcelona, Spain, Samsung has opted to host the event at San Francisco, California. Miles away from MWC.
