Chinese tech major Huawei, battling a ban in the US, has put up a strong fight against rivals like iPhone maker Apple and South Korean giant Samsung in the premium smartphone segment with flagship P30 Pro.
Known to be a stylish trendsetter — it was the first smartphone player to bring a triple camera system in P20 pro last year – Huawei’s P30 Pro comes with the world’s first RYYB sensor aims to disrupt the digital imaging space.
The new RYYB sensor, which uses yellow sub-pixels instead of green for the main camera, replaces the RGB sensor found in most smartphones.
According to the company, the new sensor would let in up to 40 per cent more light than an RGB sensor.
The Huawei P30 Pro costs Rs 71,990 – nearly Rs 2,000 cheaper than Samsung Galaxy S10+ (128GB variant) and way cheaper than the 256GB variant of iPhone XR that costs Rs 91,900 and iPhone XS with 64 GB internal storage that is priced at Rs 99,900.
The device brings to table a cluster of rear cameras that promise extraordinary zoom capabilities, great night photography and dynamic image range.
We used the “Breathing Crystal” colour variant with 8GB RAM and 256GB onboard storage for roughly five days and here’s what we think of it.
The P30 Pro’s USP is its rear quad camera system that puts Galaxy S10+ and Apple flagship iPhone XS to shame.
There’s 40MP main sensor, a 20MP ultra wide-angle and an 8MP 5x optical periscope zoom lens along with a Time of Flight (ToF) sensor.
The P30 Pro offers the best zoom on a smartphone camera to date.
It combines image data from the telephoto sensor and the main image sensor to produce hybrid but “lossless zoom”. While it does a great job, we also noticed a little loss of sharpness as we zoomed into 10X. But the loss in detail was negligible.
The biggest feature of any phone has to be its low-light camera performance. Google Pixel 3 (with its night sight feature) may have been the undisputed leader in low-light imaging but the P30 Pro is much better in this department.
Compared to Samsung Galaxy S10, the P30 Pro is a winner that refrains from oversaturating the photos. Notably, iPhone XS fails to compete with the bigger sensor of P30 Pro.
The phone is powered by Huawei’s homegrown Kirin 980 chipset that also fueled last year’s Mate 20 Pro.
The chip makes it one of most responsive phones out there today.
The EMUI software, which was quite bulky, was a disappointment. It was quick but wasn’t free of bloatware like reminders to enable “HiCare”.
Another let down was a single speaker and the lack of a 3.5-mm standard headphone jack.
The vivid and bright 6.47-inch OLED FHD+ display gave us pronounced colours and deep blacks.
The display features an almost negligible waterdrop style notch and underneath this screen lies the earpiece speaker as well as the fingerprint scanner.
A 4,200mAh battery ensured the high-performance phone lasted almost two days on a single charge under moderate usage. We got almost 70 per cent juice in 30 minutes with the fast charging technology.
The memory on the phone can be expanded only via Huawei’s proprietary nanoSD card — similar to what we saw on last year’s P20 Pro.
Conclusion: While the Huawei P30 Pro isn’t cheap but it offers much more than its competitors. An excellent low-light camera coupled with flagship specs make the device a great buy over the iPhone XS or Galaxy S10+. (IANS)
1inch Network is suffering from the same problem as all cryptocurrencies at the moment, a vast majority of cryptocurrencies have become bearish or appear that way for now. This has resulted in massive decreases in price and 1inch Network is no exception.
HUH Token is a newcomer to the market and hopes to defy the ongoing trend and encourage bullish behaviour. It aims to achieve this through its beneficial features for holders and the ability to create additional income the longer the token is held. This could be the encouraging factor that buyers need to begin purchasing once more.
1inch Network is the crypto project that created the 1inch app. The one 1inch app is the popular decentralised exchange, otherwise referred to as a DEX. Recently, the 1inch Network has proclaimed that it has a $175 million from their Series B funding round. This is an impressive increase from the $70 million that they had announced three months ago. Their target expanded after they hit the $70 million barrier and they have now achieved their new target.
Follow NewsGram on Instagram to keep yourself updated.
In order to achieve the funding that they required, 1inch sold its tokens at a discounted rate. It was quite a significant discount, the token was trading for approximately $3.60 and during the round, the price was $1.50. The idea behind the reduction in price was to reward those who were visionaries and believed in the future of the 1inch Network.
HUH Token has begun its vesting process and those involved in the presale will be receiving their HUH Tokens over the coming weeks. For those unfamiliar, vesting is a process whereby individuals receive their tokens over a period of time. The tokens become locked and then are released throughout the agreed time.
The tokens become locked and then are released throughout the agreed time.
Vesting is often done in order to ensure the longevity of a project. Often after presales or after ICOs a lot of people will immediately sell their tokens, causing a massive reduction in market price. Therefore, vesting is a pre-emptive option to stop this from happening. The project cannot develop over time if buyers plummet the price on the first day.
This will benefit HUH Token and the community surrounding them, they are focused on producing a community that will grow as their token does. This would not be possible if everyone could crash their price on the first day. HUH Token has the aim to create generational wealth for all of its holders and has claimed that it is here for the long haul, not an attempt to make a quick profit. This vesting process is evidence of that.

In addition to vesting, they also have provided $1 million in liquidity that is locked in for two years. This would only be done if the creators believed in the project, those who make cryptocurrencies are not forced to lock their liquidity. It is a sign that those who purchase can have confidence that the token aims to continue developing and providing advantages for those who follow their project.
The crypto market is a wonderful place for many and can be cruel to those who have unfortunate timing. However, the market normally recovers, and those with long-term aims typically come out ahead.
With this in mind, projects such as 1inch Network and HUH Token have shared their news indicating their long-term goals. Joining them sooner rather than later will stop many from looking back in a year wondering why they aren’t among those who have benefitted from the projects.
